3 Simple Ways to Feel Like a Beautiful Badass When Life Goes Bonkers

As a working mom in a creative, deadline-driven field, it never fails that work and home life collide in epic fashion. It’s easy to let self-care slide at times like these. But I’ve found that if I look put together, I feel put together. Here are a few tips that make me feel like a beautiful badass, ready to take on the world: 

  • Gel Manicures: I love having my nails painted a flashy nail color, but peeled and chipped polish only accentuates how much I need to work on self-care. Investing in gel a few times a year when I know I won’t have time to keep up myself, takes pressure off, and lets me know I can be ready to look my best at a moment’s notice.
  • Eyebrow Maintenance: There have been moments I’ve caught a glimpse of myself in the right light and realized how little attention I’ve been paying to myself. A few minutes with a set of tweezers can do wonders. I might start keeping some in the car, because that's the mirror that gets me most.
  • Red Lipstick Selfies: If you want to feel on top of your game, get a tube of red lipstick. Slow down long enough to carefully apply, and then pucker up for a selfie. This always makes me feel glamorous and powerful at the same time. 

Tribe, take your red lipstick selfie and use the hashtag #redlipstickselfie and #30Seconds, and be sure to also share it below!

I love this! I tend to wear bright colors (as opposed to my go-to blacks and greys) when I need a pick-me up. But I should try a bright lip color! You have always rocked a red lip, Jen Imbaro ! Welcome to the tribe!

I find doing yoga helps me the most, it reminds me to stand tall, breathe deeply and be flexible. All really important to not losing it in times of chaos.
Sarah Sweeney
I'm terrified of red lipstick, but you rock it beautifully. I needed this tip. Thank you for sharing!
Susan Masterson, PhD
This is obviously not me, but I couldn't resist. Thanks for the reminder to take care of myself!

I don't wear lipstick! Maybe that's my problem and why I don't feel like a badass. lol
