I am a make up addict. Superficial maybe but a massive confidence booster when I am feeling less than 100%. Too many late nights and undisturbed sleep means I have bags under the bags and a tired looking complexion.
I see so many school mums who have stopped caring about what they look like. Have a look around tomorrow, you'll see mums with no make up, looking tired, haggered and fed up. They have stopped caring as they quite rightly put their families first.
However, it doesn't have to be this way, just because we are looking after everyone else, it doesn't mean we have to stop looking after ourselves. I strongly believe that if you look after yourself, it makes you the best possible mum you can be as you are presenting yourself to the World at your very best.
Another reason mums say they have stopped wearing make up is down to time. Again, I disagree, in just 5 minutes you can look polished and presentable, even if you have been up all night!
I've put together my first ever vlog/video tutorial using Benefit products. If you haven't discovered benefit yet, I implore you to go and have a chat with the lovely, friendly girls at your nearest Benefit counter. Back in 2010, Benefit featured in my top 5 beauty products and I am pleased to see I am still using the same things! That's endorsement for you coming from me I promise!
Not only are the products lovely to use, if you buy a kit (like I am demonstrating) they come with easy to use instructions for getting the perfect finish!
Peace and Love
Disclaimer: I am a total make up junkie as regular readers know. So, when Benefit offered to send me a kit in order for me to demonstrate how to perfect school run make up, I was thrilled. All opinions and wrinkles are mine and mine alone (but if anyone wants me to demonstrate botox, say the word!)
