Wearing camera-ready Model Mom Makeup is protocol for pregnant models. However, with your hormones fluctuating, it is important to keep your skin healthy off the set. Here are The Stork Magazine’s beauty suggestions for your daily routine when you do not have full-face makeup.
Less is more. The less makeup you can get away with, the better. Heavy foundations can clog pores and cover up your natural pregnancy glow. Pregnancy causes hormones to change day to day (or even hour to hour), which can cause acne. Since you are more prone to breakouts, keep your skin breathing as much as possible.
Fitness and Food. Having a daily exercise routine and eating regularly and healthily (while still satisfying your cravings) will keep your skin in shape. Exercising while pregnant can also beautify your pregnancy radiance. Getting your daily sunshine will help your complexion–just be sure to protect yourself with a oil-free sunscreen. Another useful tip is to maintain a healthy diet. Any greasy or sugary foods will unbalance your skin’s natural ph balance. But now that you are eating for two, there’s nothing wrong with feeding those crazy cravings every now and then.
Embrace the pregnancy glow. Because you are supporting another little person, your blood circulation increases, which can cause a natural radiance to your complexion. Whether you have a glow naturally or not, pregnancy is a time when you can let your glow shine! Hydrating face creams will give you the pregnant glow if you do not glow naturally. Adding a peachy pink blush across your cheek bones will amplify your radiance. Pregnant exercises will also keep your blood circulating naturally, creating a beautiful complexion.
Stick to the essentials. Lip gloss, mascara, and concealer are the basics to achieve your daily makeup without caking on the cosmetics. A pink or nude lip gloss or lipstick can complete your look. Something like MAC’s Lipglass in Love Child not only has the perfect name, but also the perfect smell and shine. For the brave, a red lipstick will leave you feeling sultry for nighttime. If sleep is not on your side, your favorite mascara and salmon-colored, under-eye concealer will make your eyes look more open and awake.
Take it off! Once you get home at the end of the day or before you go to sleep, wash all of your makeup off with makeup remover wipes or olive oil as a natural alternative. Keep your beautiful skin breathing as much as you can.
Moisture for months (nine to be exact). Worried about stretch marks or dry skin? Hydrating your skin will allow the skin to expand without showing you where. Cocoa butter or Estee Lauder’s Day Wear are perfect for healthy hydration.
Pregnancy is incredibly beautiful naturally. With a few beauty aids, you will feel just as radiant as you are on the outside.
