Simple Make Up For a Busy Blogger 

12 Oct

Hi folks,

Everyones life is going like a million times an hour these days, so we don’t seem to have time for anything. I have to admit that fitting in Mammy-ing, work, blogging, running a business, running a house etc… really does test the 24 small hours we receive each day. So make up needs to be something I can whack on my face in like 15mins.

This blog post is dedicated to my basic everyday make up.

Of a weekend I do take a little longer as I have the luxury of the hubster being off work & therefore available to do some daddy-ing while I do make up. But through the week its like slap it on & run!

Here are my everyday essentials for my 15 min makeover!

  • Make Up Revolution Girls on Film Salvation Palette – today I used shades: ‘Heads Turning & Lipstick Over the Lens’
  • LA Girl Semi Permanent Lip Liner in Natural
  • Younique Lipstick in Upper Class
  • Benefit ‘Goof Proof’ Eyebrow Pencil
  • W7 Argan Eyes Mascara
  • Max Factor Miracle Touch Foundation
  • Max Factor Creme Puff Powder – purely because I like the matte look
  • Benefit Boi-Ing concealer – just in case of any pesky blotches or spots
  • Benefit Rockateur – I mean who even has time to contour!?
  • Younique Eyeshadow Primer
  • Benefit Bad Gal Kohl Eyeliner

I literally never ever leave the house without make up… Unless its either an emergency or that I’m having an operation… well lets face it… having operations is like my pastime lol. But in all seriousness – I was applying my make up like 12hrs after having a c-section. When the nurse walked in my room to take my vitals she just laughed as I was stood at the mirror applying my make up lol. That’s just me though. Plus I wasn’t blessed with being naturally pretty… so any extra help I can get – I’m utterly grateful.

I love wearing make up & it makes me feel so much more confident. I think I’ve perfected the perfect quick & easy time saving make up routine for a Monday to Friday. The Younique eyeshadow primer really does keep your eye make up looking fresh & in place all day. Perfect for when you’re trying to hide those tired eyes.

It’s amazing how a little make up can make you feel so much better.

So there you have it… Quick & easy make up while doing life the IxxyPoco way!

Thanks so much for reading.

Love & Huggles,

Hayley xxx
