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.
