I tried to research on the topic of looking hot or more beautiful while being pregnant and I was surprised how little there is on the matter. It seems like, “oh darling, you have a glow” and that is it.
Or you can find the following: drink lots of water and eat healthy; sleep.
I am not saying, my post is going to be triple the times original but maybe I can add to the list of “wash your face”.
Speaking of washing your face, you will have to brush your teeth and use a facial scrub… Seriously! Even if you are not pregnant, washing your teeth in the middle of the day or in the morning, can make you feel so nice. You feel:
“I did something very nice for my teeth!”
“My breath smells better!”
“I used to this when I was getting ready for a date. I must be young again!”
(In case you have toddlers watching) “I am setting a good example!”
“I successfully completed a mission!” (Self-esteem booster)
Now what is the story behind the facial scrubbing?
I truly feel that some amount of make-up is important but I never had special make-up brushes and a make-up room or a proper mirror…
And I went without using a facial scrub for months. OK…years.
At the same time, I am a huge fan of the BB cream I use. I apply it with a concealer (Estee Lauder if you were curious) and it is The solution for me when I wish to hide my uneven skin. I used to look unnatural with all the foundations I applied on, before so this was revolutionary for me.
But(!) one day, my BB cream started flaking on my face and I was convinced that they changed the formula and there goes my luck… Well, it turned out that if you never use a facial scrub, your dead skin will eventually migrate from your face. Nasty, really…
Let us jump to the next chapter: you need some make-up (in my opinion).
I took this picture yesterday. I will start my 37th week of my pregnancy, tomorrow and I look normal, right?!
So before I start my mini lecture, the sunglasses and the top I am wearing are from here.
All you need to do is apply minimum two things that are noticeable. It is that simple. I prefer to use an eye pencil that is white or pistachio colored and I really like my purple mascara.
Next chapter: let your hair down and put some hair product in it. Gel, moose, wax whatever. Make an effort.
Before you frown, you can of course wear your hair in a bun IF
– you have crazy gorgeous hair
– you have a somewhat unique hair color
– you are wearing a lot of make-up so you look chick no matter what
I am focusing entirely on wearing make-up and having a hair with a palm full of moose in it, right?!
Right. This is what works for me. This is reasonable I think because it can be done under five minutes. And if you have a pretty face, you can get away with the rest… HUGS, Eszter @zoardminiboy on Instagram
