Quick hair and makeup for a night out on the town!

Friday, 15 January 2016

If you read my blog you will know by now that since becoming a mum (3 years ago now, whhaaaat?!) I've been a big fan of quick, easy makeup that still looks spruced enough for a night out on the tiles.  Even though motherhood takes over my life most of the time, a night out with my pals is one of my most favourite activities...and one that I usually need to get ready for, very quickly.

Here are my top products for quick, fool proof hair and makeup sprucing;

I'm usually very lazy when it comes to hair but what helps stopping me look like a man who hasn't cut his hair in a few years is the COLAB dry shampoos,  The extreme volume one is best as you need hardly any product, spray a bit through the roots, fluff it up with your fingers et voila - slightly messy but acceptable hair.

Estee Lauder EE Creme is like a magic potion for your face, sheer and luminous but some how creates a veil of flawless skin without feeling too made up.

Seventeen's Falsifeye HD mascara is amazing AND cheap.  Lashes are quickly made long and fluttery and you can build up as many layers as you like without it going clumpy.

Eylure's Shape & Shade Brow Pencil & Tamer in Blonde is a surprising but brilliant find, if kept sharp it is easy to apply and lasts for ages.  Even though I have dark brown roots, this is the perfect shade to get brows looking groomed without looking fake.

Charlotte Tilbury's Blusher in First Love is essential for putting the colour back in to my drained mum face, its not really pink or peach but the perfect shade to put life back in to your face.

Lastly I LOVE a good lipliner and my favourites for looking groomed but not over done are; Naked by Urban Decay and Eastend Snob by Rimmel.  They both last for hours so no topping up is required and I find a nude liner finishes off a look better than just leaving lips blank or balmed.

What are your favourite products when you need to get ready in a hurry?
