Hydrating Crease Control Concealer, £18.50,

It might sound a little dramatic, but sometimes in life you find a beauty product that actually changes your life and that’s exactly what happened when I discovered Fake Up from Benefit. It launched just when I needed it most ­with a six-month-old baby at the time ­and is the most fantastic concealer I have ever used. This is mostly due to the fact that unlike conventional under eye concealers, this is so easy to use because surrounding the concealing make up is a layer of hydrating vitamin E and apple seed extract which means the make up doesn¹t settle or sit in your wrinkles like most do.

These ingredients also help to hide dark circles and diffuse fine lines for a silky smooth ultra natural look, that lasts all day, and with a child in tow that¹s exactly what I need. Available in three shades.
