Sticky mascara, out-of-date glittery eye shadows… it’s time to overhaul your make-up bag so it suits your new life as a mum on the go. Here’s what you really need…
Foundation does what it says on the tin – lays the base for the rest of your make-up. But having time to apply it before you head out for the day is unlikely now you’re a mum. Your new best friend needs to be tinted moisturiser instead.
“It’s better to spend more on a good-quality base,” says Millie Kendal of Ruby&Millie (www.rubyandmillie.com). “Not only is it lighter to wear on your skin, it’s simple to apply because you use your fingers so the product blends smoothly.” By using a tinted moisturiser, you’ll get the goodness and hydration of a normal moisturiser, with the added hint of colour that you’d wear as a foundation.
You can even choose from a variety of tints to match your skin tone. “You should always use an SPF even when the sun isn’t shining to protect the skin from pigmentation and ageing,” says Tara Templeton (www.taratempleton.co.uk), make-up artist for the Jemma Kidd Academy.
