  1. I recognise a couple of these from my own make up bag! Can’t beat a good old tub of carmex 😉
    Thanks for linking up to #coolmumclub lovely!

  2. Ohhh looks like some lovely things. I admit that since I became a mum my beauty routine has… well, to be honest, it doesn’t exist. So I could do with a few pointers to get things kick-started again. Thanks so much for linking to #KCACOLS. I hope you can come back again next Sunday.

  3. Genuinely in awe…once I get the boy dressed in the mornings I generally scrape my hir into a bun..poke on some mascara and some bright red lippy to distract people and stagger to work. I need to put in more effort! #KCACOLS

    • I love Carmex but the original, I tried the Cherry one but it’s not the same. I keep seeing the EOS lip balms in boots, I may have to stray from my much loved Carmex and see if it’s any good. Thanks for commenting 😊

  4. Aww a lovely look at how other people escape out the door in the morning looking vaguely human. I too have perfected the routine and have my absolute must have faves – I would never be brave enough not to – crazy I know but hey us girls do love a little bit of make up! #KCACOL

    • I know I’m one of those people that needs a little bit of make upon before I go anywhere unless it’s literally round the corner to the shops! I’m not brave enough to do my make up on the train while going in to work but I always like to have a nosey when I see other people are doung theirs! Would love to see what your faves are 😊

  5. This is amazing! I never really used make-up before the kids but could really do with something to cover up these dark bags under my eyes!! I really want to wear make-up but have no idea where to start!! Sad for a 30 odd year old huh?! #KCACOLS

    • Thanks for commenting. I was the complete opposite, but since becoming a mummy I’ve had to use the essentials so I look semi-decent for work, no time for liquid eye liner here! Maybe a BB cream would be a good place to start as it’s basically a tinted moisturiser and light on the skin, but then it really depends on your skin type. I use this or L’Oreals Infallible Stay Fresh Foundation which has a more satin feel to it than the one mentioned. Unfortunately I don’t use a concealer but have been told that you shouldn’t wear foundation under your eyes, I may have to look in to concealers 😊

    • The brow gel is amazing and so easy to use! I’ve noticed that my skin has also changed, it seems to have become drier in places, must be the effects of motherhood! Thanks for commenting x 😊

  6. I love Hypnose too, but like you say, it’s pretty pricey! I don’t demand a lot from a mascara so this sounds worth a try (my main criteria is that it holds a curl and doesn’t smudge, which does appear to be too much to ask from most mascara apparently!) #KCACOLS

    • I’ve managed to build up my Boots advantage card points to buy my Hypnose, but the hubby went away this week so I put in a request for one from duty free 😊 I know what you mean I don’t understand why it seems a lot to ask! L’Oreals one is a good cheaper alternative I find by letting it dry a little bit and then adding another coat gives a bit more volume. Thanks for commenting x

  7. I’ve always had issues with shiny/greasy skin, and while it has improved a bit over the years, I do still really notice it as the day goes on, so I’ll be checking out the primer you recommend in this post, thank you! x #KCACOLS

    • I hope you like it. I’ve heard the Smashbox Primers are also great but at £20 I can’t bring myself to buy it, the L’Oreal one is £7.99 and does the job perfectly. I’ve also just noticed that they do a ‘Fixing Mist’ as well which looks interesting, I may have to give that a try too! x

  8. Thanks Franca! I’ve only recently started using a lot of L’Oreal products and I have to say I’m really impressed with them so far. I noticed Real Techniques have brought a out a new chrome range of brushes but are slightly more on the pricey side! Thanks for hosting and commenting x😊
