School Run Morning Makeup Routine!

School runs in my house are tough. The girls get themselves off to school however there will always be a mess in the kitchen from making breakfasts and packed lunches. So as soon as I come downstairs I have that to deal with. To add to that destruction in the kitchen it’s guaranteed I will have a mountain of washing to put on, a carpet of toys in the living room and a dishwasher that is apparently loaded  and ready to go but on closer inspection needs unloading, plates re-scraping, rearranged and put back in ready to go. In case you were wondering the kids are still asleep at this point.

Anyway back to the topic, I don’t care how manic the mornings are I still want to look half decent before walking out the door. After much trial and error I have realised it works best to get up slightly earlier and do my make up while they are all still asleep. These are the products I use and why.


W7 magic clear face primer

This is great for oily skin and was super cheap although the prices have risen recently.


Bare Minerals ORIGINAL Powder Foundation

This is my fave, it’s quick and easy to apply in a rush, looks glowy and healthy and is good for your skin. My skin is quite oily so I do need to use powder and top up throughout the day.


Reveloution Conceal and Define

Full coverage, stays put all day, super affordable!


Rimmel Stay Matte

Light weight but stops me getting oily


Maybelline Lash Sensation

One of the best mascaras I’ve ever used, doesn’t flake or smudge, elongates lashes just love it!


Rimmel brow pencil

Quick and easy to use when in a rush and also very cheap!

Highlight, blush and contour

Revoloution Sculpt and Contour kit

3 in 1 so again great for those school run mornings, quality of this is incredible… especially for £3.50


Anastasia Beverley Hills Renaissance Palette

Well known and quite pricey for me, was bought as a gift but well worth the money.

This is the finished look.

Ok, ok I won’t be gracing the front pages of magazines but it’s a whole lot better than my bare face!

Let me know your school run make up tips!
