Busy mums share their light­ning-fast beauty rou­tines

Little Treasures - - CONTENTS -

Sanna Cooke Mum of three, Sanna, is a lover of bright lippy and al­ways uses an SPF

The day starts with the kids’ break­fast. I’m usu­ally half naked but I’ll throw on some ac­tivewear to walk my older daugh­ter to school. Upon ar­riv­ing home, I grab a quick shower – usu­ally I wash my hair once a week. My cur­rent mois­turiser is by Mecca Cos­met­ica, it’s su­per light­weight. I use it along­side a Gar­nier BB cream with SPF – my mum has beau­ti­ful skin and it’s due to ap­ply­ing SPF daily. If I’m head­ing out I’ll use a By Terry foun­da­tion, it’s beau­ti­ful. I dab it on with a brush. If I’m sleep de­prived I’ll ap­ply un­der my eyes first. Nor­mally my lit­tle ones will be with me, they love to watch me put on makeup – and go through my col­lec­tion. As I have oily skin I sweep Bare Min­er­als BAREPRO over my face to keep my makeup in place. Eye­brows! You can have the shit­ti­est skin day but if your eye­brows are on track – you’re good to go. I use Pheonix’s Brow Queen Shad­ows. Of­ten when I find some­thing is miss­ing from my makeup bag, the kids usu­ally have it. It’s nor­mally the mas­cara. I use a L’oréal mas­cara, it suits me, and I love the brush. De­pend­ing on

“Nor­mally my kids will be with me, they love to watch me put on makeup – and go through my col­lec­tion”

the day, I dab a bit of bronzer on, too. Whilst I’m ap­ply­ing, my daugh­ter Suski shakes the mir­ror, that’s pretty stan­dard. If I’m feel­ing a bit fun, I’ll add a Mecca Cos­met­ica high­lighter. Nor­mally my whole face takes four min­utes to do. I’m a lippy gal and keep my col­lec­tion with me in my ruck­sack. If I’m do­ing the school pickup, I’ll throw on Dr Hauschka’s Liq­uid Lip Colour 02 as it’s sub­tle, but my day time matte lippy of choice is Mehr by MAC, it’s su­per lon­glast­ing. I also love Flat out Fabulous by MAC if I’m head­ing for a night out.
