10-step Mummy Makeover
Working mum Mahoney
Harris (37) felt tired and in need of a pick-me-up. Running around
after two-and-a-half-year-old Nico means that Mahoney doesn't
always get time to herself, and she admits it was time to refresh
her look - and take a little time out to relax.
1 Apply foundation and
concealer with a foundation brush. Blend outward.
2 Apply powder or powder foundation, using
circular motions to blend in well.
3 Pencil in eyebrows using either an eyebrow
pencil or powder and a brush. The colour should match your hair or
be a shade lighter.
4 Put a thin layer of light concealer or
long-wearing base on your eyelids to prep for eyeshadow.
5 Choose your eyeshadows - soft browns and
taupes are always a good neutral choice for everyday wear.
6 Using an eyeshadow brush, blend well,
softening any hard lines.
7 Line along your lash line, top and bottom.
Wet some eyeshadow and use a fine-tipped brush to apply.
8 Apply lashings of mascara to your
eyelashes, starting at the roots and working your way out to the
9 Put your lipstick on first, then line your
lips. Slick your lip gloss on top.
10 Swirl blush on the apples of your cheeks.
Add a touch of powder to your T-zone.
"My mum said I looked about 18 again!" says Mahoney, who
also felt and looked a lot less tired after her makeover. It's
inspired her to take more time in the morning to apply blush,
mascara, concealer, and even a little eye makeup.
