Makeup for busy mums

Over the last few months I have been hard at work evaluating where I would like to take Makeup Utopia in the future, and where I would like it to take me. I’ve redesigned the site, but more importantly, I’ve redesigned my personal approach to blogging.

I don’t want to be an enabler of frivolous spending, I aspire to be an educator. In order to facilitate this, I want to start sharing regular videos here on Makeup Utopia. It’s all well and good for me to share a Face of the Day, but it’s much easier to share techniques on video.

In this video, I share the makeup that I wear if I need to look polished and presentable and I don’t have a lot of time. It’s not even close to perfect, but it’s the first video I’ve made on my SLR, and the second video I’ve ever made, so I hope to learn quickly and increase the quality of my videos.

There is a bit of background noise, because I had my one year old “assistant” with me, and if you watch until the end, you’ll get to meet him!

If you’re often in a hurry, you can pick up some tips and tricks to getting out the door fast, as well as a step by step guide to create 10 different looks in 5, 10 and 15 minutes in my first e-Book, Express Makeup.

If you’re explicitly interested in the products I used, they were:

  • Ellis Faas Foundation
  • Urban Decay Naked Skin Concealer
  • Collection Lasting Perfection Ultimate Wear Concealer

You definitely don’t need to use the exact products I have used, if you have products that are similar colours and/or textures, you can totally substitute them.
