Minimal Mummy Make Up

I thought it was time to throw in a dash of beauty just like it says in my blog description! I love make up but as a mum I find time to put it on is limited! So I thought I'd share my 'minimal mummy make up'.


Bases I like to use

For a light coverage I use Laura Mercier's oil free tinted moisturiser. It gives a natural dewy finish and you can build the coverage.
MUA's BB cream gives a surprisingly good coverage at a bargain price. I recommend trying it if you haven't already!
If I'm having a 'bad skin day' I've been using Rimmels Wake Me Up foundation. I bought it a couple of weeks before my due date in June after reading lots of positive reviews on it.I love the coverage and finish it gives!

Powder & blush
I use MAC Mineralize Skin Finish powder to get rid of any shine and then MAC Mineralize Powder in Star Wonder (limited edition) for blush. One of the make up artists convinced me to buy it when I was picking up some make up for a wedding. It does leave a lovely glow on my cheeks.

Minimal eye make up
For eyes I use Rimmel Scandal eyes eyeliner in Nude on the waterline to hide any redness and to brighten the eye. I'm not too fussy when it comes to mascara and currently use Avon's Super Shocck Max which works well on my lashes.

If I have an important event or night out I'll also slap on eyeshadow, concealer, highlighter, bronzed and fill my brows, the works!

What do you use? Do you have any of this make up in your collection?
Thank you so much for stopping by! I appreciate comments and read all of them!
