When a little one enters your life, time and sleep become precious commodities, but looking your fabulous pre-baby self doesn’t have to stop once motherhood arrives. When I started my blog it was very beauty orientated, so I didn’t want to be a bare-faced mummy. Over the past two years since my daughter Sophie arrived, I’ve discovered some mama (and, let’s face it, anyone who’s busy!) beauty hacks.

MINERAL VEIL, £21
Keeping your make-up looking freshly applied all day, so you don’t need retouch is key. The Mineral Veil absorbs any oils that appear on your skin to keep you looking flawless. Blurring lines and softening your complexion also help to give you an air-brushed finish.
ENERGIZING EMULSION, £27 | 125ml
The tingly Emergizing Emulsion from Clarins isn’t just for tired legs. If you persuade your other half to give you a shoulder massage, apply afterwards to leave you feeling refreshed and ready to tackle anything.
BEYOND PERFECTING FOUNDATION & CONCEALER, £25 | 30ml
This is a blend of foundation and concealer to give flawless coverage, plus it reduces make-up application time as you can skip using an additional concealer. I love the in-built applicator as you can dab the product straight on to the problem areas before blending.
CHEEK TO CHIC BLUSHER, £30
Perk up a dull complexion with a great blusher. Charlotte Tilbury Cheek to Chic Swish & Pop blusher in Ecstasy is a flattering shade that gives a youthful boost and healthy glow.
THE SHOCK MASCARA, £23
I’ve always been mascara obsessed, long luscious lashes are the ultimate in femininity. Finding a great mascara is the key to looking, and therefore feeling, great. I’ve fallen in love with YSL The Shock mascara. In just a few strokes, it gives you film-star lashes that don’t smudge or transfer, looking perfect all day long.
VELVET TEDDY LIPSTICK, £16.50
A little lippy can transform your face and glam you up in an instant. I love nude shades and Velvet Teddy is my current favourite.
