Since having Max I’ve really had to up my game on the old make up front especially as the sleepless nights have caused havoc on my skin. Here’s a peak into what make up essentials every mummy needs to keep them looking fresh and beautiful.
I was introduced to the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer by my sister and have never looked back. It’s lightweight with a medium to high buildable coverage and it’s also super hydrating which means there’s no pesky creases. There’s been a lot of hype over this concealer in the blogging world and I can see why.
Next up is the Chantecaille Just Skin Tinted Moisturiser. I can’t stand having foundation on my skin on a day to day basis so I always opt for a tinted moisturiser and this Chantecaille one doesn’t disappoint. It has exceptional coverage, smoothes out those fine lines and also has SPH 15! Even though it’s slightly on the pricey side I can’t tell you how many compliments I get when I wear this.
I was lucky enough to be given all of the real techniques brushes for my birthday and pretty much have fallen in love with all the brushes however on a day to day basis I tend to reach for these three brushes the most.
The Deluxe Crease Brush from the Starter set for eyes is used with my Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer I find it’s the perfect size to apply my concealer and is easy to blend in.
I love the shape of the Blush Brush and I find it incredibly easy to contour and apply my blusher, it also doesn’t pack on the product which means I don’t end up looking like a clown with tons of blusher on.
And then finally I use the Contour Brush from the Core Collection to apply my highlighter.
Talking about highlighters, I shopped my stash whilst pregnant I think I was having one of those bored maternity leave days and found this beauty MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in Soft and Gentle. It has a high frost metallic finish and highlights my cheeks, brows and the ridge of my nose for a dewy healthy finish to my made up face.
The blusher I am currently using is MAC Peaches I absolutely love this shade on my skin. I think it’s the perfect shade for olive to dark skin tones. It livens up my dull tired skin and this blusher is an ESSENTIAL part of my make up routine.
I really do love a lipstick but there’s some days when I just fancy popping on a lip balm but a lip balm with a difference. These Clarins Instant Light Natural Lip Perfectors create a smooth and shiny look with a tint that make your lips look younger and fuller. I love the applicator and find these lip balms a pleasure to use. I currently have two out of six shades and I’m sure I’ll be picking up a few more for my collection.
I would love to know what your Mummy make up essentials are so comment below!
