6 Ways to Be a Hot Mama

1:06:00 PM

Happy Mothers Day to all you lil mamas out there, especially mine :).  For every mommy out there, I have a few tips to become that hot mama.

1. Choose trendy rims.
If you were not blessed with 20/20 vision and you are blind without your glasses, then please please please, next time you're at Lenscrafters choosing from hundreds of different rims, choose a pair with a more modern-style.  It's the quickest way to take 10 years off your face.
2. Carry a modern purse.
Too often I see hot moms walking around with a sad, homely purse. No I'm not suggesting that you go out and buy a designer purse.  Whatever your price range, modern purses are out there.  It's not about the brand, it's about the style.  Stick with something neutral and leather. The larger your purse, the more petite you look. Also, stay away from teen section.  It's always disheartening to see a 50 year old woman walking around with a blinged-out, studded, plastic bag.
3. Pay attention to pant length. 
We all have seen the woman who makes that effort to look more modern by pairing her jeans or black pants with a pair of heels.  What she doesn't realize is that her efforts have gone to waste because now her pants are 3 inches off the ground.  Hello, high-waters.  A word of advice: If you're going to wear heels, make sure that the pants are no more than 1 inch off the ground.

4. Toss the too-short shirts.
Too often I have seen women get stuck in the rut of wearing short, boxy t-shirts.  They seem to hang straight off their boobs and barely reach the top of their mom jeans.  You can sometimes even see the button of their pants.  This is what happens when you wear shirts that are too short: Your butt looks large and shapeless, your shoulders look broad and square, and your waist loses its definition.  Instead, make sure that your shirts reach at least 2-3 inches past the waistband of your pants.  You want your shirts to hit right below your hip.

5. Get your lip products right. I know that many moms reach for the lipstick when trying to look pretty and fresh.  Lipstick, however, can actually be extremely aging when misused.  If the lip is too dark, your eyes will blend into your face, your skin tone will appear pale, and wrinkles will be more noticeable.  And we all have seen those moms who wear a thick layer of bubblegum-pink, frosty lip gloss.  When the gloss dries it looks like you have crusty, chalky pieces of crystalized cotton candy stuck to your lips.  When choosing a lip color, stick with something closer to your natural lip color.  If your lips seem to have lost their color, look at a picture of when you were in your prime, and match that color.  Also, moisturize with chapstick before applying lip products.  It will make the lines and wrinkles in your lips so much less noticeable.
6. Focus on the butt pockets. 
I am a HUGE fan of cute and interesting butt pockets on jeans.  Maybe you're a new mom and your booty still has that pop to it, or perhaps a bit too much pop.  Or maybe you're an older mom and your butt now resembles a pancake.  Whatever the case, butt pockets are your friend.
 For those bootylicious bums: Choose pockets without a flap.  Also, if the pockets are too high on your butt, they will make it look gigantic and like it becomes a part of your thighs.  If the pockets are too far apart or sit an an slanted angle, they will make your booty look a mile wide.  Basically: choose pockets that are sit lower, slightly closer together, and do not have a flap.
For those pancake butts: Choose pockets that have a flap.  Also, pockets with some sort of subtle embellishment (please avoid bling) will add dimension.  Choose smaller scale pockets as well, as large pockets will "drown" your booty.
