As you prepare to put your Mother’s Day outfit together, consider these suggestions for Mother’s Day hairstyles, makeup tips, manicure tips, and what to wear on Mother’s Day. You can create a complete look that is gorgeous no matter if you are the mom herself or coming out to show your love and support for the special women in your life.
What to Wear on Mother’s Day
Mother’s Day usually falls on a fairly nice weekend where the weather is warm enough to get away with showing a little leg. Consider wearing a pretty spring dress with sandals or a nice skirt and top set with sandals to keep comfortable and fashionable. You can also wear a nice cardigan over your dress or top to keep your shoulders warm, especially if it is a bit breezy or if the rain breaks through.
If you prefer, you can also wear a cute spring top with some nice ruffles and a pair of khakis, black pants, or other slacks. Consider bright and fun colors for your shirt or blouse as a tribute to the springtime and to Mother’s Day. Don’t forget a nice coordinating bag and cute shoes to go with your Mother’s Day outfit!
How to Do Your Hair for Mother’s Day
Once you know what your Mother’s Day outfit will be, you can more easily choose a nice hairstyle to complement the look. For a dressy look, consider a nice up-do with a few curls or a long and loose hairstyle with some soft curls created by a wide-barreled curling iron. You can also go with a standard blowout or a nice twisty bun or low up-do using a classy hairpin or clip.
For a more casual look, consider wearing your hair down, wearing it up in a cute ponytail, or twisting it up in a simple hair clip. For additional inspiration, check out these Mother’s Day Hairstyles to Try.
How to Do Your Makeup for Mother’s Day
Makeup is definitely a personal preference, but a nice look generally includes mascara and a touch of eye shadow (maybe some eyeliner), a bit of lipstick or lip tint, and some powder or concealer to touch up any blemishes. If you like, you can add a bit of blush or bronzer.
Choose colors that complement your skin tone as well as your eye color. You can keep your look rather natural or play it up a bit if you are going on a Mother’s Day date with your hubby. Consider these other Makeup Tips for Mother’s Day to give you some additional ideas for your special look.
How to Do Your Nails for Mother’s Day
A pretty and timeless look for any special occasion is the French manicure and French pedicure. Sometimes it’s easiest to get this look at your favorite nail salon, since you don’t have to worry about switching from your dominant hand to non-dominant hand while painting your nails. If you prefer to paint your own nails, you can choose a pretty solid color manicure and pedicure in colors that match or look nice together, or you can try your hand at the French mani and pedi.
If you are more interested in something a little creative and fun, consider painting your own nail art designs for Mother’s Day. You can do something simple or complex, depending on your skill level and preferences. Consider these Pretty Mother’s Day Nail Art Designs You Can Do Yourself as a few options to decorate your nails for Mother’s Day.
If you and your mom will be spending the day together, consider going to the spa or nail salon for some quality girl time. You can also go shopping to choose some new outfits, perfume, or other goodies.
