Beauty Tips You Can Use | With Love From Mom

Advice About Beauty From Mom

Before the arrival of computers, TV, and fashion magazines, daughters looked to their mothers for advice about beauty. Even though this advice may not be as necessary as it was years ago, a mother can still be depended upon for a few beauty tips in this day and age.

As a mom, I’m certainly aware of what I consider the good, the bad and the downright, I’d like to forget about this, parts of my appearance. No doubt I’ve worked to improve the parts that I don’t like while taking good care of my assets. While doing so I’ve tried to pass on some of the tips that have worked for me in the beauty department.

As a girl you probably sat and watched as your mom applied her make-up, combed her hair, or got ready for an evening out. Many of her tips were probably casually tossed out while you chatted together during these times. Things like, go easy on the eyeliner to avoid the raccoon look, or blend in the blush so you don’t get the round clown dots on your cheeks.

Mothers are aware that the older we get, the more we sag. So when your mom tells you to throw your shoulders back and walk tall, she is really talking about posture. When you have good posture, you look slimmer, have more confidence and feel good about yourself.

Another piece of good mom advice is to relax. We tend to be so stressed today and this is reflected in our faces. Frowning and grimacing produce fine lines around the eyes and mouth that deepen with age. Make a conscious effort to smile as much as possible. Not only will you look better, but you’ll feel better too!

Another tip she may pass on is to wear sunglasses when it’s sunny no matter what season it is. Another tip is to wear glasses if you need them instead of straining to see. Scrunching up your eyes produces wrinkles around them in years to come. You can delay the crow’s feet and other wrinkles around the eyes by what you do (or don’t do) with your eyes now. So, stop scrunching up your face to avoid the bright sun or read that newspaper.

Some tips from mom may even be passed on without conscious thought from her. You can learn a lot about yourself just by looking at your mother. For instance, take a careful look at your mom and you’ll get an idea of what you may look like in twenty or thirty years. Using what you’ve learned from doing so might indeed prove to be an important beauty tip from your mom.

Moms are wise. Some of the tips that she shares are really designed to support a daughter who is bemoaning some aspect of her appearance or her life. Since mothers are all about championing those she loves, don’t be surprised when she talks about beauty being on the inside. No, it doesn’t mean that she thinks you’re hopeless. She just wants you to love yourself for who you are, just like she does. When you think about it, this tip alone is the single most important beauty tip she can pass on to you.

In the next few posts, I’ll be passing on some old-fashioned beauty remedies that were passed on to me by my mom and grandmom (who lived to be 101)!

If you have some beauty advice that was given to you that you’d like  to share with me, leave a comment!

Nothing’s too good to pass up!

  1. It’s been almost 30 years and yet, I still remember when my mom took me out to buy makeup for the first time. We bought Aziza eyeshadow – do they still make that?

    The best advice my mother ever gave me when it came to beauty was “less is more” … as in, don’t pile the makeup on your face and try to be something you’re not.

  2. Wow! What a great post!!! I don’t really have a good relationship with my mom now, but I still remember her getting ready to go out and a lot of my makeup tips from that. I can’t wait to read the next installment!!
    .-= Cheryl´s last blog ..General update… =-.

  3. My favorite beauty tip is. If you wear foundation and it is the thicker kind you can add a little moisturizer to it on your palm and it thins it out and moisturizes your face too. You can do it with normal foundation too.

  4. My mom never really taught me anything about beauty except some don’ts. She tanned in her 20’s and 30’s, and we spent every day ALL day at the beach in the summers. She also smokes, and I can see how it’s aged her as she gets older.

  5. Yes, our moms are our first teachers. I remember my first lesson with our friendly Mary Kay lady! Now I try to keep it all natural with mineral makeup…my skin thanks me and it is looking better than ever, despite a few wrinkles popping up the deeper I get into my thirties. I also use emu oil to help with that-and it does! Please take the time to check out my new healthy living blog if you get the chance-www.to-yourhealth.blogspot.com. Thanks!!

  6. I love this post. It got me thinking about some wonderful memories with my mother like when she took me to the mall to get a makeup makeover. I felt like a princess when I was done.
    .-= Mommy Bear´s last blog ..Uh oh! =-.

  7. I never got make up tips from my mom. She was never into it. It was my older sister and cousin who helped me along the way. I love reading about these kind of tips from people who know and can’t spend tons of money on cosmetics. Keep ’em coming.

  8. I have no hope! I scrunch my eyes all day long while I’m online. My eyes always glaze over while I read. I do smile a lot though so maybe I won’t have many ‘mouth wrinkles’! lol Great tips! :)

  9. Yes! I believe that Aziza is still around! Haven’t seen it in awhile though!

  11. Hi Sheila! Thanks for the tip – never thought of adding moisturizer to foundation! Good one!

  12. Hi Amanda – Yes, I tanned all the time too, and used baby oil back then! So far so good though, I have good genes!

  13. Hi Audrey – I used Mary Kay for a bit too, never heard of Emu oil though. I’ll be stopping by your blog!

  14. Hi Connie! I don’t spend as much money on cosmetics as I used to. I posted the homemade cosmetic recipe tips! Thanks for visiting!

  15. Hi Stefanie! I have DDs who scrunch their eyes! Keep telling them that’s not good! I can tell from your avatar you like to smile!
