Beyonce’s New Mom Beauty Tricks Are Real Time-Savers

beyonceMotherhood really seems to have changed Beyonce. One of the most glamorous women in the world has admitted to People magazine that before heading to the maternity ward, she was all about looking her best -- she got her nails and her hair done before delivery. But! After baby Blue Ivy arrived, Bey says that her beauty routine got a make-under. The 30-year-old star says she cuts her own hair and does her own makeup.

If you're apt to believe her, and you're not suspicious at all that this is some big P.R. push to make Beyonce seem like "one of us", then wow, Beyonce seems like one of the most down to earth moms ever.

She told People that she gave herself a trim, "I just parted it in the middle and chh-chh-chh" and says that "I have embraced my flaws, and I feel more confident."

I mean, I thought Beyonce wore wigs, or weaves, or whatever, but I guess the new mama is going natural these days. I have to admit that I'm a little, teensy-bit skeptical that Beyonce cuts her own hair and does her own makeup, but hey, I guess even superstars can't escape the tempting beauty short-cuts of a first time mom. Even though she has a glam team at her disposal, nothing's quicker or easier than a little DIY haircut. It's risky, but it's a time saver.

The World's Most Beautiful Woman may be a bagillionaire, but she has the same beauty instincts as most exhausted new parents -- the path of least resistance is the only path worth taking. 

When you were a new mom, what was your hair and makeup routine like?

A "down-to-earth-mom" wouldn't have needed the fancy birthing room she got pampered in. She is not "one of us."

Yea right! I don't believe that for a second she cuts her own hair, not when her lifestyle is based on her appearance; she's not going to risk a messed up hair cut. I'll give her the benefit of the doubt on the make-up though.

For me it was simple, hair went up into either a bun, quick chigon, or was just loose, and make-up was eyeliner, mascara, and lip gloss or lipstick.

Doing your own make-up isn't all that surprising after you've been getting made up every day for over a decade. It's make-up, not rocket science. Totally believable that she would do her own for simple appearances. Celebrities are just people. I think every day folks have a harder time understanding this than the celebrities themselves. We drive the celeb obsession, not them. You perpetuate it when you can't even accept that the girl puts on her own lip gloss smh.

why would anyone need to trim weave?  of course she is lying.  Unless our whole economy totally crashes to the point where money/valuables mean nothing, Bey will never be one of us again.

She will never be one of us smh and I'm sure she doesn't get up during the night with "her baby" I wonder how many nanny's she has??

Why is everyone so jealous? As women, we all go through the same issues and life. While she may be able to do it in more style than most of us, she still does it basically the same way. So what if she has help. My mom stayed with me after I had my kids. We all need help at some point or another. Especially when caring for an infant.

Most days I am not lucky enough to get make up on.  But I must admit I feel better when I do so I have been trying to get the time to do it.  I must have mineral powder.  It is a huge time saver :)
