Catastrophe Cosmetic Mask -AED 55

Lush Catastrophe Cosmetic Mask, $26.50, Lush
Stress. That’s something mamas know all about! It’s something you’re confronted with all the time… God forbid you forget to cut your little one’s sandwich into triangles, or forget to remove the crusts. Or even worse – both. And what does stress cause? Spots. But don’t panic, this mask is here to lend you a bit of perspective, to tell you to calm down, it’s not the end of the world and it’s nothing that can’t be sorted. Basically, this is your BFF in a pot. A calming and moisturising blend of blueberries, chamomile, calamine, rose, and almond oils – it soothes, softens and loads skin with antioxidants and vitamins. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes et voilà, peace is restored.

benifit shadow

Benefit Creaseless Eye Shadow, $32, Benefit & Sephora
A long-wear cream eye shadow that won’t budge or smudge no matter what life throws at you? Yes please! This is one mighty make-up must-have for mamas, as once you’ve applied it in the morning you don’t need to touch-up or reapply during the day. Dream. If you’re after a more natural shade, go for the gleamingly golden Bikinitini shade. Or if you want to add a bit of evening glamour to your look, it’s all about the sultry grey HolySmokes. Just brush over lids and you’ll look fab in a flash.

Dr Dennis Gross Alpha Beta Glow Pad, approx $36, Sephora
Is there anything these powerful self-tanning pads can’t do? Nope, doesn’t look like it! Providing deep exfoliation thanks to an abundance of alpha and beta hydroxy acids, pores are tightened, blackheads are banished and sunspots are visibly reduced, whilst skin is left looking gorgeously sun-kissed. With Active Vitamin D, antioxidants and soy proteins, not only do you get a top tan – but you get a load of anti-ageing properties too! Simply swipe the wipe over your face and watch as the natural colour starts to develops. Perfect for mamas wanting to top up their tan or for those who don’t have the time to hit the beach (like we ever do!).

NYX MATTE Body Bronzer AED 42

NYX Matte Bronzer, approx $18, Sephora
A day of running after little ones can leave even the most glamorous of mamas looking tired and washed out, so get your glow back with NYX’s Matte Bronzer. Its shimmer and glimmer-free formula makes it even more perfect for this time of year, when we all tend to get a little bit shiny and sweaty. Lovely. Use it on your face or body to add a beautiful bronze boost, or to enhance your facial features – it’s perfect to contour with. Using any bronzer brush, lightly sweep under cheekbones, buff around your temples, brush down your nose and dust underneath your jawline. You’ll be looking as chiselled as mama Ms. Moss in no time.

percy and reed

Percy & Reed No Fuss Flawlessness Dry Conditioner, approx $26, Sephora
Rushed mornings and demanding little ones can reek havoc on a mama’s ability to wash her hair regularly, so if a third consecutive bad hair day has you (and your hair) feeling a little flat, a quick spritz of Percy & Reed’s cute-as-a-button dry shampoo will solve all your greasy roots woes! A bathroom cupboard essential, this no-fuss dry conditioner soaks up excess oil from your roots, helping you at least feel like you washed your hair — even if you didn’t!
