She explained: "No one needs makeup, but I certainly felt a whole lot better when my two were tiny when I managed just a few simple steps: moisturiser! Sounds so obvious, but apply a really nourishing, hydrating day cream and your skin will look plump and energised and give you some of your glow back even if you’ve barely had any sleep."

Makeup wise, the professional really rates concealer and mascara: "Concealer can be a new mum's best friend! Apply a little to the inner corner of the eyes and anywhere on the face that could be a bit more even in tone."

"Mascara has a similar effect to moisturiser- it seems to help wake up the eyes, framing them and giving your eyes a little lift."

And when you have your hands full, an all in one product is your best friend. Hannah remarked: "Lastly, I highly recommend a cream blush or a lipstick that you can use on lips and cheeks. The multitasking nature is so handy as speed is everything and a creamy finish can help maintain a healthier skin look." Genius!
