Five essential cosmetics for busy mums.

With a baby to look after your daily pruning ritual may have been subsided for a quick face wash and some moisturiser hurriedly slapped on.

Although you will be of course more strapped for time now, it is important that you give your skin some well-deserved pampering. Whilst a full facial massage every day might be out of the question, you could treat yourself to the following five essential cosmetics for busy mums.

Eyelash curlers

If you simply haven’t got the time to put your mascara on in the morning, regularly curling your eye lashes before you go to bed or when you get up, can give the impression of brighter, wider eyes.

Rimmel Renew and Lift Foundation

The circles around your eyes may be infinitely darker due to those sleepless nights, but they can be almost hidden entirely with Renew and Lift Foundation by Rimmel.

Protect & Perfect Range from No 7

Put on every day before you go to bed and when you get up, and Protect & Perfect serum from No 7 has been highly commended for improving the feel and look of tired skin.

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream

Even the celebrities are delirious about the radiating qualities Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour Cream has on their skin. Although what is particularly fantastic about this product is that it is also great for healing minor rashes and scratches on baby too!

Eye Bright Pencil by Benefit

Our eyes are always the worse effected by tiredness. Eye Bright Pencil from Benefit will help to wake your tired eyes, as well as concealing those pesky shadows. Simply apply the pink pencil as a final step once you have applied your makeup and everyone will be amazed by how well you look, thinking you are one of those lucky mum’s whose baby sleeps through!
