Whether you are staying at home because you work from home or if you are a stay-at-home mom… When we stay in the house for an extended time, it becomes a norm to spend all day in pajamas and with messy hair in a bun. And it’s 100% fine!

But if you feel like you have forgotten to take care of yourself lately, if you feel like you would be in a better mood if you looked more put together, it’s perfectly okay to spend a few minutes to get ready in the morning and look good for the day – even if it’s a day at home!

Looking put together can elevate your mood, and you don’t even have to spend more than 10 minutes.


How To Look Pretty While Staying At Home


1) Basic makeup


I know, you don’t want to walk around the house with a full face of makeup every single day. However, it is easy to spend a few minutes on a basic makeup routine to brighten up your complexion and make you look well-rested.

My basic makeup routine uses 5 products, and it takes less than 5 minutes, but you will look good and put together by the end!

I like to start by washing and moisturizing my face when I wake up in the morning for a healthy natural glow. Then I proceed as follows.

Step 1: Put on a few dots of a BB cream on your face and blend using your fingers for a flawless finish. BB cream not only moisturizes the skin, but it also evens out the complexion and provides sun protection. I have been happily using this cheap and everywhere-available Maybelline BB Cream (it’s really good!):

I then proceed to dab a little bit of concealer under my eyes and blend with my ring finger to minimize dark circles and puffiness.

Step 2: Use a dark brown eyeshadow on an angled brush to shape and fill in your brows a little bit. I also like to use the same brush to softly define the outer half of my lower eyelid, and this step makes me look instantly awake!

Step 3: I put on a single coat of mascara on my top lashes, and if I feel fancy I apply it to the bottom lashes as well.

Step 4: I add a natural colored blush to the apples of my cheeks. For summer, I love to play with corals and peach tones (the usual, eh!).

Step 5: Finish your makeup by applying a lip balm or neutral shade lip gloss.


2) Hairstyle


Once you are done with your basic makeup, you can move on to your hair. On the days when your hair looks like a mess, use simple messy hairdos that take less than 2 minutes! (I’m a genius, ain’t I?). There is no need to spend hours styling your hair, and a simple combed hairstyle can look beautiful when you are staying at home.

Some of my favorite styles are high messy ponytails or messy buns with a few French braids, something like this:

3) Choose a comfortable yet stylish outfit


When choosing clothes while you stay at home, make sure that they’re both comfy and well-fitted. If you want to look fresh and vibrant, going with soft colors and patterns can’t hurt.

For your everyday clothes, pair a tee shirt with some shorts (Or a hoodie with jeans, depending on the weather), and put on comfortable flats to complete the look. This way, if you have to run some errands or need to get out of the house, you can easily add a few accessories to this basic attire and look instantly dressed up.

Another wonderful choice for home is a romper! It’s comfy, it’s sexy, it’s cute and it’s hard to buy the one that doesn’t fit!
