Baby on the hip, Touch Éclat in hand…
All the busy mummies will know that sometimes getting ready can feel like an impossible task, especially when it comes to makeup.
I can spend 10 minutes to an hour in front of the mirror, but as Lola becomes more demanding for attention, and I prefer to spend more time with her than on my office (especially during the working week) I had to find shortcuts.
Personally, I can’t leave the house without some form of makeup as it makes me feel good and put together, but I have definitely embraced the time-saving tips that I’d love to share with you below.
Tinting your lashes and brows are a great way to skip mascara and eyebrow pencil, just curl the lashes before heading out the door
Swap your foundation for CC cream. I love the French/ Korean brand Erborian as it evens out the skin tone. All I do then is use YSL Touch Éclat under the eyes and on any red areas
Liquid eyeliner has the best staying power and unlike pencil, it doesn’t leak onto eyelids so you can be sure to have the feline flick in place all day
Use your hands instead of brushes to apply makeup. I use fingers for CC cream, and the cushiony part at the bottom of my palm for cream blush and cream bronzer – Fenty Beauty Match Stix are great for on the go and the magnet keeps them together so you don’t have to rummage through your makeup bag to find them
On the lips, I use lip balm and then fill it in with a lip liner as I find it stays on longer thought the day while the lips remain hydrated
For oily days, Laura Mercier transparent powder is my saviour
If I need to jazz up my makeup look, I always have products in the office for touch ups throughout the day
Let me know what you do to cut down on time in the bathroom and thank you again for stopping by the blog! X
