FOTD: My current go-to make up

Now that I'm a mummy to a 5 week old most mornings I literally have only 10 minutes to get ready. This means I've really had to simplify my makeup and use tried and tested products that I don't have to think about much as I know they will work well.

My go-to look is basically a wash of taupe and grey eyeshadow, dewy skin, understated blush and pale creamy lips. Also since I'm trying not to wash my hair everyday, I've been using a Styling Powder to make sure it doesn't go oily and flat in between washes. (Styling powders work better on my dark hair than dry shampoos).

Notice the bags under the eyes... comes from having only 4 - 5 hours sleep each night!

Do you have a tried and tested look that you go to when you don't want to make too much effort? Any key products?

    1. Oh what a shame! Can you press it together with some alcohol perhaps? And Vex is the best!

    1. I've learned to multitask Hannah :) E.g. rock the cradle with my foot while I have breakfast with one hand and do my makeup with the other. xo

    1. Hi Ashley, wow you speak Armenian so well! My husband is not Armenian (though he's teaching himself the language) so we speak English at home but with my family I still speak Armenian. And congrats on your 1yr old! Thanks for the heads up that sleeping gets better, coz I don't know how much longer I can go on 4 hours sleep.
      xx

  11. If you don't already have one I would really recommend. a vibrating chair, they're suitable from birth my baby absolutely loved hers! There's no harm in taking an hour for yourself through the day while baby has a nap in the chair whilst watching mickey mouse clubhouse. It will keep you sane! You do look really well x

  12. HOT! And I love that foundation. I hear so many good things about skin base, need to get my butt to a counter! x

  13. As always a gorgeous FOTD from you lovely - I am pretty obsessed with grey (not silver) eyeshadow at the moment and Vex has me completely hooked.

  14. This is a great quick makeup look that still looks really "done"! I love the swipe of blue on the lashline too, it makes it look like you spent so much more time on it than you really had to! Go you! :D
