Here is a quick and easy makeup routine for even the most time poor mum.

Follow these easy steps and watch the video for a step-by-step guide.

  1. Start with a primer or moisturiser as your base. One that fills out wrinkles and lines would be perfect. I used the Elf mineral primer.
  2. Use a BB cream for a light and even coverage. Apply with a foundation brush or sponge. Loreal skin perfection in fair is a great colour.
  3. Use a concealer for any under eye bags, circles, or blemishes. Blend with a small brush or foundation brush.
  4. Use a mineral foundation or a powder to set makeup for the day. I use Inika or Nude by nature.
  5. Apply a thin coat of mascara if you want to. I just recently got eyelash extensions and I find them to be great when you’re on a busy Mum time schedule.

  • My make up routine is even quicker then this!!! I don’t have one, don’t wear make up, never have. Extra bonus is my cleansing routine us also quick


  • My make up routine is I don’t put any make up on. Saves a lot of time!


  • I do not wear make up on a daily basis but think this will come in handy for those special occasions that call for it.


  • I basically just used tinted moisturiser and lippy. That’s my make up done in a minute.


  • Thank you! I have only recently started caring for my skin better- I have found after 2 kids, I look old and tired- much older than my 34 years! I am still finding out about different products and tricks… this is helpful!


  • Sounds good, I’m hopeless at make-up at the best of times, hehe.


  • i think people are beautiful without makeup but if they must wear it, a natural look seems more healthy to me

    • Yes it’s whatever you feel comfortable with your own skin.


  • I love my BB cream with SPF 50 great when I am outside for a luncheon or out the back gardening. I like a light covering and it helps to give me a great look all day long.


  • I’ve been using a BB cream as it reduces my need for touch ups through the day, and less concealer. Still looking for that one stop lipstick tho. :)


  • Great tips. I’ve been thinking of using a BB cream instead of foundation for every day use. Might have to give it a try.


  • Thanks for sharing
    I use BB cream as a foundation anyway…does anyone else?
    I like how light it feels :)

    • Yes it feels so much lighter and you actually feel your face breathing!


  • Thanks for sharing, will have to add the bbcreme to my routine :)


  • Great tips and I would use BB crème by Nutrimetics. Remember not animal tested so great to use and easy
