Do you have a go-to beauty regime? Being so busy, my routine has to be simple. I’m a shift worker with two small kids at home and a really busy schedule. My skin is suffering. Every now and then, daily life takes its toll and I have to start looking after myself.
I don’t want to look like I’ve put a full face of makeup on everyday. I just need to look a little fresher in the morning. These products are my saviours.
Body Shop Vitamin C Energising Face Mist is a great way to instantly wake up you skin. It really brightens up dull complexions and can be used to set your makeup. An everyday product for me.
No7 Protect and Perfect Intense Advance serum. This enriched serum is silky and I massage it into my face and neck before bed and in the morning. It gives a soft glow and helps plump up sunken cheeks and leave skin really soft, great for drier or rougher skin. Amazing after the summer to replenish dehydrated faces after the sun.
Burt’s Bees Replenishing Lip Balm with Pomegranate oil. My lips start to suffer when I’m a bit run down. Remembering to carry this with me saves any horrible crusty lip outbreaks!
No7 Airbrush Away Sheer Finish Foundation. This product is my dirty little secret. I stopped wearing foundation a few months ago and with this stuff I have found my ultimate must have product. It covers all imperfections. (I know freckles are coming back into fashion but I’m still not a big lover of mine some days!) Glossed under dark eyes this leaves your face looking as flawless as possible as well as giving a lovely glow. I could live without any other thing in my makeup bag but could not go a day without this! Since I started using it not a single person has told me I look tired or pale – a true testement to its power!
Benefit Boing. This concealer is for when I’ve had a particularly rugh few days. It slicks over dark eyes or bad blemishes and leaves you looking model fresh. It’s called an industrial strength concealer and I can see why! Honestly if it can work on me after 3 days no sleep then it can work on anyone!
Here’s my before and after in the morning – no it’s not the biggest before and after revelation! But with no filter, no other makeup other than the products mentioned above you can see a bit of a difference. What do you think? Not exactly a massive change but enough for me to feel a lot better about myself.
What are your secret weapons?
Let me know if you’ve tried any of these.
