Wake Up Make Up

When I need to get out the door in the morning there’s no time for a full face of makeup; so here are my go-tos for a quick and easy daytime look. 

Bare Minerals Complexion Rescue TInted Moisturiser

I was completely influenced by this on Instagram and haven’t looked back. It’s really light and blendable and can be built up if you like a bit more coverage. It’s also really good for holiday skin, if you’re lucky enough to go on one.

Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer

When you’re over 30 and you’ve got two kids, a good concealer is an absolute essential. I dot some eye gel under my eyes before blending this in and it keeps it smooth, crease free and, most importantly, covers dark circles all day.

Benefit Gimme Brow

Never ever underestimate what a good brow can do for you. This little tube is small enough to take anywhere and so easy to use. I just give my brows a once over with the wand and it fills them out immediately and wakes up my face.

Benefit They’re Real Mascara

Show me a better mascara. I got this as a free sample years ago and now refuse to use anything else. Top tip; for an evening look, heat your eyelash curlers with the hairdryer for extra volume and lift. 

Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze & Glow

I find this set really subtle and buildable. So It’s ideal to quickly brush over cheeks when you’re in a rush, but when you want to go from day to night it’s pigmented enough for a filmstar glow. A bit pricey but I’ve had mine for about 18 months and it’s still going strong (don’t come at me about throwing make-up away after a certain time - ain’t nobody got enough money for that). 

Dr. PawPaw Peach Pink Balm

GAME. CHANGER! My lips blend in a bit too much with my fake tan,but whacking a hot pink lipstick on every morning isn’t practical with two kids demanding Weetabix. This has a subtle peachy pink tint that gives me just enough colour. It can also be used on the cheeks so you’re getting even more bang for your buck.
