Blog takeover: Quick and Easy makeup for tired mamas

Quick Makeup Items

Hi everyone, My name’s Adele-Marie and I run a little beauty & lifestyle blog over at One Girls Obsession With Makeup. I thought I would share today my favourite products to use when I’m in a pinch for time and I need to get ready quickly. I have to get up at 2.30am some mornings for my job so this definitely helps me out and I know some yummy mummy’s will be able to relate to it as well. So hopefully this might give some of you an idea of how to feel better without piling on the makeup!

I thought I would show you my top 4 products that I like to use when I’m in a rush or want that extra 10 minutes in bed!

Base – For base I don’t always want a full coverage foundation and through testing out various tinted moisturisers I have found that Seventeen CC Cream gives the right amount of coverage but with ease of application. I can easily apply this with my fingertips plus it has an SPF25 which is always appreciated.

Blush – I own way too many blushers so it’s hard to show just one but my favourite at the moment has to be Sleeks Rose Gold. It’s a very close dupe to NARS Orgasm and gives the prettiest flush of colour which just gives your face a bit of shape and colour.

Brows – Even if I don’t have a lot of time for my makeup, I like to make sure my brows still look tamed. As they are quite dark you can really see how sparse they are so I love to just quickly fill them in. For a long time I used a eyeshadow but recently I’ve been loving this Kiko Eyebrow Sculpt Automatic Pencil. It’s so quick and simple to use, saving a lot of time!

Lashes – Finally I like to finish off with a coat of mascara to help awaken my eyes. I’ve had many a holy grail mascara last year but for the past couple of weeks and into 2016, I’ve been loving Maybelline Lash Sensational. It really lengthens and brightens up the eyes which is exactly what I need when I’ve had hardly any sleep!

Hope you’ve enjoyed reading about my favourite quick fix products when you’re short of time or lead a busy life as a mother. 

What are some of your favourite products for when you need to do your makeup quickly?
