You know what? I’m not in my 20’s anymore, I’m now in that category when filling in forms you have to click the 35-40 box. I don’t have flawless skin like the young Youtubers & Beauty Bloggers, I’ve got to dye my greys every few weeks, I’ve got bags under my eyes from lack of sleep with the kids but so do most my age.
When I look on Youtube for tutorials, they don’t really work for me. The girls are stunning & amazing at make-up but that make-up doesn’t work for me. I don’t have the time or the energy to ‘bake’ my face, the heavy concealer sits in my lines & it’s no easy feat to try & contour face with a five year old throwing dinosaurs at you!
But I still like to wear make-up, I don’t want to look knackered. I need to cover my eye bags so I don’t scare myself every time I look in the mirror. I want to look nice and make the effort to get out of my mum uniform. I’ve been writing about finding my mum style on the blog and my make-up is a part of that too.
