Mother's Day Beauty Tips from Celebrity Makeup Artist, Dimitri James

Skincare Guru and Celebrity Makeup Artist Dimitri James Offers Tips for Mothers to Streamline Their Beauty Routine

If you're looking for any last-minute Mother's Day ideas, here's some on-the-go beauty tips for busy moms from makeup maestro Dimitri James, celebrity makeup artist and creator of Skinn Cosmetics.

Between work, family and personal obligations, it can be difficult for mothers to keep up with a consistent beauty and skincare regimen. TV personality and founder of Skinn Cosmetics, Dimitri James, teaches women how to simplify their morning beauty routine.

Dimitri James can share a few simple tips to help busy mothers streamline their beauty routine and put their best face forward, effortlessly.

  • Stick to the "essentials"- find one gentle yet effective cleanser that removes dirt, oil, makeup, and mascara and leaves your skin feeling clean and refreshed. You’ll also want to use one great moisturizer with an SPF of at least 15.
  • Using a cleansing brush or soft washcloth eliminates the need for eye makeup removers, toners and scrubs. Try the affordably priced Skinnsonic High Frequency Cleansing System to brighten your complexion, exfoliate and extract blackheads for a fresh and clean complexion.
  • Find a great bronzer powder, gel or tint and apply it all over face lightly then heavier on cheeks and on eyelids. This is a great substitute for foundation, eye shadow and blush.
  • There is no substitute for a great tube of fabulously lengthening and darkening mascara! Simply apply heavier and close to lash base and you will not need an eye liner or try smudging along the lash line with the tip of the wand.
  • A slanted side part with a heavy side bang pulled into a ponytail is the freshest sophisticated easy hair style for a busy woman on the go.
  • If you color your hair, try to match your natural shade as closely as possible. A shade darker brightens lighter skin tones while the inverse is true for darker skin tones. Colors close to your natural shade will make re-growth more graceful and save on constant touch ups. Avoid chunky or heavily highlighted hair unless you have the resources to maintain it often - there is nothing worse than hard re-growth.
  • Choose a style that respects the integrity of your hair! If you have curly hair, find a style that does not need to be worn straight in order to look good and the opposite holds true for straight hair.

Modern moms of all ages need refreshing, pampering and appreciation. Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 12, 2013.
