The busy mum's guide to looking good without makeup

No time for makeup? No problem. Here are some quick tips on how you can look your bare-faced best

Let’s face it: looking effortlessly beautiful often takes some effort. Looking good without makeup is not easy.

Our daily beauty regimen doesn’t have to take chunks out of our day, especially for mums whose schedules tend to fill up pretty quickly from the moment they leap out of bed in the morning.

So here are quick and easy-to-remember tips to incorporate into your daily routine to truly be bare-faced and beautiful!


Use a BB mask to tighten pores and to brighten skin in a matter of seconds. Or choose a hydrating facial wash to balance your skin’s PH like a hydrating facial wash before you dab on moisturiser!

Choose a sheer moisturiser with light-reflecting properties. This keeps your skin hydrated and glowing!


Use a gentle exfoliating cleanser which functions as both a scrub and a face wash to save time!

This often neglected facial feature, when perfectly groomed, frames your face and pulls your distinct features such as cheekbones and deep-set eyelids into focus.

Release a natural glow

It gives you that natural radiance and is easy to apply!



Eye drops

They’re not only known for reducing redness; they can brighten up your entire face!

Smile bright

Lengthen those Lashes

Clear mascara does not only make lashes look longer and fuller; it causes your face to become more radiant.
