What I Used To Create This Look

This weekend was my sister’s wedding.  As a family we have been looking forward to it for nearly a year.  I had planned long before the event that I would have a dress made and everything else that goes with a special family event like this but it was not possible with a new born and breastfeeding.  At one point because of the baby, I was not sure I could even go to the wedding.  Things have got a little easier since discovering the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Electric Breast Pump.

I layered my skincare and allowed 10 minutes roughly for my skincare to settle before playtime begins and the magic happens.

The look I wanted to achieve was healthy, natural glowing elegance with a focus on the eyes.  The key to this look is the primer and the foundation.  The 4 products listed below are the secret to achieving such a flawless glowing base.  The reason I chose the bareMinerals Bare Pro Foundation is that it gives flawless professional coverage without being heavy; it enhances rather that hides.


The bareMinerals collection uses naturally derived minerals to give flawless skin, long lasting coverage, sun protection and breath-ability. From starter kits to brushes, SPF foundations, concealers and bronzers, the extensive range will work in harmony with the skin to improve our complexion and give our skin an impeccable finish.

What I Used To Create This Look
