Hannah Martin is seriously in the know when it comes to makeup. Not only is she dominating the YouTube world right now with her insane makeup tutorials, she also has a podcast called Life and Lipstick with her fellow makeup artist pal Lisa Potter-Dixon. As well as her life in the limelight, she's also the makeup artist of choice when it comes to the royal family. Most recently, the MUA did Princess Eugenie's makeup for her October wedding and we all know how ultra-glowing she looked that day. HELLO! caught up with Hannah, who told us all about the products she loves and gave us some great tips for new mums that want to look amazing with minimal effort. So, Meghan, if you're reading this - take note!

Sweeping Statement Metallic Eye Sticks, £2.25, CYO @ Boots are a fave of Hannah's
She added: "From experience of having had two kids - the days when I just don't have three minutes, just do it! If the baby is unsettled, do it because you will feel so much better for the day ahead with those three minutes just to feel a bit brighter. It's amazing the confidence it can give you. You've got this!"
