My Budget Summer Make-up Look Perfect For Busy Moms

After emerging from the dark bleak winter, Spring and Summer is always a nice time to freshen up your make-up routine. I love to go for a fresh faced, dewy look in Summer. As its nice to feel light and airy rather than over done.


I only really do drugstore make-up with a few exceptions. Being a mum on a budget, there’s far more important stuff to splash out on than expensive, high end cosmetics.

So, without further ado, here’s how I created this simple everyday spring look:

Base – Baby Skin Primer by Maybelline

I really love this primer, especially if, like me, you have enlarged pores, it really does live up to it’s name and create baby soft skin and a nice smooth base for foundation.

I’m also loving this Revlon Photoready Airbrush Effect Foundation for a flawless look which doesn’t feel heavy on your skin.

Blush – I’m not too fussy about blush, i think they all do pretty much the same job. However, ideally I want something more matte and less shimmery. I’m currently using Rimmel Lasting Finish as it has good staying power and is an utter steal!

Eyebrows – To create this dewy, natural summer look, i really like to create bright eyes, and i feel that eyebrows that frame the face, really help to achieve this. I use this Max Factor Brow Contouring Kit which does a really fantastic job.

Mascara – A girl’s best friend! If i could only take one beauty product to a desert island, then mascara would be my choice! (Comment below with yours!) I am lucky to have been blessed with long lashes naturally, so i like to use a volumising mascara to show off what i’ve got! I achieve this with this Volume Infusion Mascara by Max Factor

Highlighter – I adore this Loreal Paris Glow Mon Amour because a little goes a long way!

Lip – I have a natural lip in the pic, but to complement the dewy, natural look i have been using Burt’s Bees 100% Natural Lip Shine.

Finishing Spray – To give my look staying power because as a working mum, i don’t have the time nor inclination to redo my makeup throughout the day, I love using  This Max Factor Setting Spray
