We don't need to tell you that being a mum is hard. In fact, research says that being a mum is the equivalent of working 2.5 full-time jobs!
With that in mind, we want our beauty regime to be a once-a-day, streamlined event and we definitely don't have the time to dab our nose with a beauty blender every few hours because of patches/creases/general base breakdown.
Introducing the best long-lasting foundations which promise not to budge all day. We've tried lots of different products and these were the ones which came out trumps. They will even last until it's time to read The Gruffalo to a stroppy two-year-old...
Best long-lasting foundations
We say: If you are a fan of a full coverage, this foundation is for you. It blurs all of your imperfections (it really is like a filter for your face) without feeling really heavy on your skin. We love.
We say: It's a cult-favourite for a reason. It won't budge all day and it's matte-finish means it's perfect for those with oily and combination skin. We just wish the bottle had a pump...
We say: This is ideal for mums who don't want to slather on lots of makeup and prefer looking fresh-faced. It's really light-weight, sheer and definitely won't cover your gorgeous freckles!
We say: No wonder this is Kim Kardashian's go-to base. It really sinks into the skin and conceals any blemishes and dark circles expertly. The foundation feels surprisingly light on your skin, despite it being full coverage. Win win! If you're worried about going full-thwack glamour for the nursery run, mix a few drops with your favourite moisteriser.
We say: It leaves skin with a nice dewy finish and will last until afternoon snack time at least. The rigid bottle makes it really difficult to squeeze out product.
We say: Yep, it's definitely full coverage and ideal for anyone wanting to achieve the 'filter' effect. Unlike a lot of heavy foundations this won't doesn't leave your skin looking cakey and looks surprisingly natural. It's also available in a mighty 40 shades, which has made Rihanna's beauty collection a favourite within the industry.
We say: We are impressed with the staying-power and the dewy-finish from this foundation and at a tenner, it's a bargain! The formula smells like apricots and blended very easily into the skin.
