Glowing Makeup for my Tired Face…

makeup tutorial video new mum

The baby has started sleeping through the night. Hurrah, you might think, but no: I have developed, for the very first time in my life, a kind of strange almost-insomnia that sees me spend much of the night in quasi-dream-mode and the rest of it listening out for the baby monitor. Sod’s law, eh?

So I’m completely shattered, but the upside of this is that I’m really starting to appreciate the true transformative powers of makeup. I’m not talking about transformative in the editorial kind of way, where dramatic makeup techniques can make you look like a totally different person, I’m talking about transformative on a much more basic level. The “starting off looking dead and ending up looking a bit more alive” level. Brightening the skin, lightening circles, widening the eyes and bringing colour to the lips. Sod the smokey eye (momentarily, at least): this is makeup for those who simply don’t want to scare the children.

Suqqu Sheer Glow: launches soon.
