Mamma Mio Tummy Toner and Get Waisted . They are really great products.
Second vote for gorgeous shoes too
Regular mani/pedi and eyebrow wax. The first two you can do yourself (even if mani is no more than file nails, sort cuticles, apply clear varnish). Whenever I have my eyebrows waxed I feel instantly more groomed and together - even on the days when I don't have time to apply make up before running out the door.
Just pre- and immediately post-baby I swore by two Benefit products - a pink pencil called High Brow, which you wear just on the brow bone and magically makes you look less tired, and Some Kinda Gorgeous which is a little compact which goes on like powder but is like foundation.
Call me vain and shallow if you will (ahem) but those and some mascara took one minute and made me feel many degrees less shite.
Plus people are always dead impressed if you have a new baby AND some make-up on.
- Fake tan ( Bobbi Brown says it makes most people look better) - This Works range for shower/ bath/ body/ - Yummy Tummy tops ( they even have a BF one), M&S do a cheaper version but they do not have the same suck it in power - Have you ever had your eye lashes dyed ?, it can make a huge difference especially with well shaped eye brows. - Maybe some Eve Lom, I found this little ritual very relaxing and made me feel like I was really looking after myself.
