5 Minute Mummy Make Up

I had an idea to do a post about how I do my make up in a morning. Looking after a 4 month old I don't have much time so need something quick and easy which hopefully looks nice. I don't wear make up everyday and some days I only wear concealer and lip gloss but here is what I do if I want to wear make up.

Here is all the make up I use.

The lovely no make up shot!!

First up is foundation. I use Maybelline Dream Satin Liquid in Ivory. As you can see I put this over my face then blend using a foundation brush.

After foundation.

Next I use a bronzer. I use the Maybelline Dream Sun Glow. I apply this just under my cheek bones to contour.

Next is blusher. I use the MUA Blusher in shade 4. I just apply this to the apples of my cheeks.

For my eyes I either just use a simple light brown colour or use the light brown colour with a darker brown in the outer corner. I use the MUA Undressed palette. I used shade 3 all over my lid and shade 10 in the outer corner.

Next I curl my lashes and apply my mascara. I use the W7 Big Lash mascara. I just apply a thin coat to my top lashes. As you can see it make my lashes look longer and fuller with only a thin coat. My lashes are pretty thick and long anyway so I can get away without using mascara.

I then apply an under eyes concealer to cover up my dark circles. I blend using my ring finger.

And lastly I apply an MUA lipgloss in shade 2.

Here is the finished look!!

I want to see your mummy make up!!!

If you would like a closer look at any of products I would be more than happy to do a post on them, just let me know!

Thanks for reading and I hope you liked this slightly different post. Let me know :)

  3. I've been wanting to try the Dream Satin Liquid. I prefer very light foundation. Is it heavy? Does it provide good coverage? I currently use Revlon Photo Ready. Found you from the the love my Post Blog Hop.
