Let's get straight to the point because I know you're busy: this is a list of my top tired-mum beauty tips, all learned from personal experience.

Ditch the powders.
When you’re tired, lacking in sleep or feeling fatigued, it can show on your face because the world is a cruel place like that.
Personally, if I’m spent, I'm usually dehydrated too (did you know that insufficient water intake leads to less energy? Grab your water bottle and take a swig right now).
For that reason I skip any powders in my routine - think blush, setting powder and bronzer - and replace them with creams and liquids instead.
Powders tend to ‘grab’ to dry bits, whereas the finish of creams and liquids is more luminous and therefore more flattering.
