Hey everyone, so it’s been a while since I uploaded a post! I’ve been SUPER busy, since I had my little baby boy at the end of August, so of course I’ve really just not had time to write a post. However, I’ve found time to write a post today, and it feels nice to have chance to talk makeup & beauty again. I’ve not worn much makeup lately, but when I have it’s mostly been a super quick look, so I thought I’d share my current quick ‘mum friendly’ routine with you all.
After a quick skincare routine, I use the Smashbox x Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector. Now more than ever I need this to brighten my under eyes… they’re so dark right now and this really helps to hide those shadows and make me look more awake. I just use my finger to pat this onto the area!
Next I use my favourite concealer, the Too Faced Born This Way in Snow. I place this under my eyes on top of the corrector, as well as on any blemishes on my face. This concealer gives me good coverage, it’s super creamy and it blends so far! Using this saves me using a foundation which of course saves time (which is very important right now!). I use a beauty sponge to blend this out.
To set my concealer, I use a little bit of the Fenty Beauty Instant Retouch Loose Powder on a fluffy brush. I really have fallen in love with this powder after initially not being a huge fan – I think the trick is to use a very small amount!
To finish the face, I sometimes add a little of the Benefit Hoola Bronzer, however I don’t always do this!
Once the face is done I quickly move onto the eyes/brows. As always I use the Benefit Brow Zings palette to shape the brows – I think this must have been discontinued, but they do have a ‘Brow Zings Pro Palette’ which is the same but with more shades of powder & wax in it – I’ll have to pick this one up when mine runs out (although I’ve not even hit pan yet and I use it every time I do makeup..)
I then quickly run the L’oreal Brow Artist Plumper through the brows to add some definition and set the brows into place.
Finally I pop on a little mascara, I’m currently using the Too Faced Better Than Sex, but I have sooo many mascara’s to get through so when I finish this one up, I’ll just grab any other I have!
& that’s everything I do! I honestly only takes me about 5 minutes, and it makes me look like I have my life a bit more together.
I hope that you enjoyed this post. Thanks for reading!
