How about this for an irresistibly named make-up set?
Too perfect for nonstopmamas, no?
And it works!! A treat. From fabulous-o make-up brand Pixi, the Fake Awake Kit (£19) contains the cleverest of beauty essentials to slick on and get you out the door feeling, dare we say it, kind of glowy. Fresh-faced. Not like you’ve just spent the last half an hour pulling your hair out trying to get packed lunches and small people ready after everyone overslept …
Trust us, this is a goodie. I slicked on a combo of the underye concealer (much needed), rosy cheek stain (maybe not so, am always flushed with lateness) and the prettiest of illuminating eye shimmers just this morning, pre-school run. It took seconds, and a fellow mama asked ‘What have you got on your face?’. But in a good way.
Not surprisingly, there’s a canny nonstopmama behind the genius: Pixi founder Petra Strand.
I interviewed the Swedish born but London-based co-founder of the company for The Daily Telegraph just after they’d launched in the UK. From the offset, Petra and her two sisters have been all about creating lovely products that provide a truly natural-looking beauty boost.
These days, the brand is a hit on both side of the pond – and it’s easy to see why. Great formulas, wonderfully wearable colours, cutely packaged and well priced.
Check them out, nonstopmamas!
