Ella's Mamaa



Hello Lovelies

Sleek Eyebrow Pencil £1.99
As busy mums we're always on the go. One thing I have realised is, I just do not have any of the time I once had to take my time and look glamorous. Most of the time it is "all systems go". I probably have roughly about 15 minutes to get ready, grab Ella and get out of the door. Well...I have recently mastered a look I can do in 7 minutes that I want to share with you all.

For my day to day look I use five or six key staple products. You don't have to be an MUA (make up artist) to be able to achieve a nice day to day look and all of these products are very easy to use. Most of these products are drugstore products and are all quite affordable.

Eyebrows - After washing, toning and moisturising my face, I start off my make up look by lightly filling in my eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil. I use this brow pencil by Sleek because it is very pigmented, very soft in texture and glides on your brows. This is needed when you are pressed of time. This can be purchased from any Sleek stand in your local Boots or Superdrug. The great thing about this product is that it is very affordable. I purchased this for £1.99 but you can purchase this directly from Sleek - Sleek Eyebrow Pencil.

Sleek BB Cream £8.99
I then use my concealer to highlight my brow bone to give that freshly plucked and groomed look. I can assure you my brows are not freshly plucked and let's leave the grooming for another day. We're running out of time ⏰

Face - I then apply Sleek BB Cream. The BB in BB cream stands for Blemish Balm. the great thing about this product is that it is like a tinted moisturiser. So you can wear more or less depending on how much coverage you want for the day. It is perfect for when you are pressed for time. It is not too heavy at all, so it doesn't feel as though you are wearing a ton of make up and it stays on all day. I highly recommend this product and it does not break the bank too. I purchased this for roughly about £8.00 - £9.00 and because a little goes a long way the product lasts a long time. The packaging also allows for you to throw it in your handbag - if you are one for doing your make up on the go. I purchased mine from my local PAK store - Sleek BB Cream

LA Girl Pro Concealer £3.99
Highlight - Now this part is optional and if I am really pressed for time I miss this step ⏰. I quickly dab on a few drops of concealer in a colour that is two shades lighter than my colour. I apply this to underneath my eyes, the bridge of my nose and forehead. This is to highlight these areas and hopefully give the illusion that I have slept the whole night, awoken feeling fresh and revitalised. I use LA Girl Pro Concealer. Once again very pigmented so a little goes a long way. I purchased mine for £3.99
Maybelline the Colossal Volum Express Mascara £8.99

Eyes - Once again this is optional and if I am really pressed for time I miss this step ⏰. I may apply some mascara. I very rarely do this but when I do, I use Maybeline the Colossal Volum Express. I purchased from Boots for £8.99.

NYX Intense Butter Gloss £6.00

Lips - I quickly dab some NYX Lipgloss. I got this from Boots as for £6.00.

MAC Mineralize Skinfinish £24.50

Finishing - Lastly to set my face so it does not shine I use my finishing powder from Mineralize Skinfinish MAC. I purchased this for £24.50

Now! When I do have the time or if my make up look is for a special occasion, my make up is very different and I use some additional products.

Comment below and let me know. What are your go to make up products when you're in a hurry? 

Lots of Love


  1. This is very helpful! I love the concealer, its so affordable and has great coverage. Will definitely be trying the BB Cream!

    1. And it provides great coverage especially if you havent had much sleep.
      Definitely try it and let me know your thoughts.

  2. You always look flawless, any ideas on primers or moisturiser's for oily skin?

  3. Thanks to share this beautiful makeup products. This is a huge collection of awesome beauty products. I believe makeup is an important part of women's life and a perfect lipstick gives a great look of hole makeup. That's why I love to use my beautiful perfect Liquid Matte Lipstick for my lip. I can't imagine a single day without my makeups.

    1. Thank you Sandra.
      Your lipsticks are lovely. Love the colours.
