Here's the makeup look - nothing fancy, but just clearer, fresher skin, a light blush, defined brows and lashes, and a glossy pink lip. My hair is just put back into a bun at the back of my head, and sometimes I like to accessorise with a flower hair clip if I'm feeling particularly girly! Today though, is a simple day, my son hasn't given me a lot of time to feel pretty, just enough time to make myself look slightly better!
Here is the makeup I've used - I've previously cleansed with Clean and Clear's Daily Scrub, and moisturised with the same brands Dual Moisturiser. I've also used Superdrug's Naturally Radiant 2-in-1 Moisturiser and Serum for extra moisture. I've applied Garnier's tinted under-eye roll on to cover the dark circles under my eyes, and then prepped my skin with Maybelline's Baby Skin Pore Eraser.
For my skin, I use the bareMinerals Ready Foundation, which you just buff onto your skin and takes literally about thirty seconds. I then use a stippling brush to apply my Sleek blusher (in the shade Golden Rose).
For my eyes, I lightly define my brows with Rimmel's Eyebrow pencil (in the shade Light Brown), and then pump my lashes a few times with the curler before applying Maybelline's The Falsies mascara - I apply two to three coats.
For my lips, I use a balm to soften them first - I've been using Palmers Cocoa Butter Formula lip balm recently, which is really moisturising and smells so good! I then use a Lancôme Juicy Tube (in the shade Fraise), which just gives a nice pink glossy tint.
For my hair, I don't get a lot of time to play around with it - surely not enough to actually straighten it - so I just brush it through, and run some hair primer through so that it's vaguely compliant for what I want to do with it. I then style it into a messy bun and clip my fringe back, and finish with the Elnett Satin Touch Hairspray.
This is my finished look, and I hope you're not all too sad about returning to work tomorrow!
