I was recently asked to overhaul Zoe’s make-up bag! Zoe is a mum of two young girls, she has a busy job as a Health Visitor and hasn’t really strayed from the make-up products that she’s used since being a teenager.
Here are some of the brands and products I recommended for Zoe, hopefully some of the thoughts I’ve put below will give you a few ideas too!
As she’s a mum and appears to prefer a more natural look, I want to give her speedy make-up!
Zoe should try Laura Geller’s Balance n Brighten, it’s a baked foundation which started its life as a liquid, so it’s not chalky.
This is very much Laura’s hero product from her range, on our website alone there are well over 500 five star reviews!
I would also recommend that Zoe tried the Stila CC Cream!
This can be used quickly on its own for a fresh dewy look, or as a base before applying Laura Geller’s Balance n Brighten which will give a bit more cover.
Blush and eyes…
Zoe is busy working, studying and has two young girls, so when it comes to blusher I would definitely go for either New CID or Laura Geller. Why? Well these are baked & multi-dimensional, if you want speed avoid single flat colours and opt for a blusher with a mixture of shades in it.
Zoe told me that she likes to wear browns or neutral shades on the eyes, because of this I would recommend Bobbi Brown eye palettes!
Bobbi delivers great collections of daily neutrals with liner and shimmer included, this means you can easily jazz up your look for the evening without having to change your make-up bag!
And finally – LIPS!
The tarte lipgloss box would be perfect for Zoe, you get FIFTEEN lipglosses, loads of colour choices and they are SO moisturising!
This collection is top rated on the QVC website and one of the most wished for products from the tarte collection.
These can be dotted around everywhere; home, work, car, & bag etc!
This should give Zoe a routine that’s pretty foolproof, but fashionable and fresh with plenty of options. The other bonus is that all of these goodies will easily fit into one make-up bag keeping them away from sticky little fingers!
I’d love to hear about your make-up essentials for busy people, those products that you can rely on for a quick fix when you have to run out of the door, leave me a comment below and share your thoughts.
Love, Ali x
