NI beauty expert Paddy McGurgan tells mums in lockdown how to achieve an easy look to see you through a busy day 

Whether your child is a newborn, toddler or of school-age, I'm sure your mornings are usually hectic - never mind during a lockdown! That's why, this week, I'm going to talk you busy mums through a super simple and convenient make-up look to set you up for the rest of the day.

My first tip is to use a tinted moisturiser instead of foundation because it'll benefit your skin as well as your time. The clue's in the name, but tinted moisturisers hydrate the skin while adding a subtle, lightweight coverage to mask uneven skin or blemishes - and it gives you that 'no make-up' look. I would highly recommend the NYX Bare With Me tinted skin veil BB cream (£10) which is so smooth and leaves a weightless, breathable finish.

A good concealer can work magic (especially on those busy mornings) to hide tiredness and to brighten the under-eye area. My all-time favourite is Make Up Forever's ultra HD light capturing concealer (£22) which can be purchased on my Make Up Pro Store website. This product is so lightweight and sits beautifully on the skin. I love buffing this product in with a clean fluffy eyeshadow brush as this gives the most flawless coverage without a caked appearance.
