Review : Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette

Maybelline Master Sculpt Contouring Palette

Contouring is all the craze at the moment.

Actually, “strobing” is.  But to me, strobing sounds like “stroking” and when I think of “stroking”, I think of…. #mymindisinthegutter.

Moving swiftly back to contouring…

It’s all well and good if you have time to apply alternate contour and highlight stripes across your forehead, face, nose bridge, cheekbones, chin, etc and have time to blend it in so you end up looking like Kim Kardashian contour on fleek.

Go Matte Or Go Home!

Before I gave birth, I envisaged Maternity Leave to be a time where I would successfully juggle a newborn baby with a lot of free time to do whatever I wanted.  I imagined me being one of those Mums who would get up bright and early, do some yoga, make some fabulous smoothie concoction in a hipster Mason jar (and Instagram it!) and drink it with a stripy straw, followed by Baby Time and when she napped, I would be able to carry on my day and do plenty of blogging and make plenty of clean-eating meals, blah blah blah.  It all seemed so easy…

Reality check – it has been the total opposite!!!  I just have NO free time!!!  Motherhood is hard work and I’m not afraid to say that some days are a struggle because it is so intense and full-on.  It is, by far, the most difficult thing I have ever encountered.  But at the same time, I love it soooo much and I feel immensely blessed.

Anyway, I am rattling on (not an easy feat typing with one hand as the other hand/arm is cuddling the baby) when I am supposed to be introducing you to the Matte beauty stash I have been loving lately…  Yes, I still have a bit of time for makeup.  I refuse to be a frumpy mummy so I am happy being a semi-yummy mummy hehe…
