Hello everyone! Some of you already know, that my day job involves working for Channel Mum; and they have a great competition live which I thought I would share with all my readers.

They are working with Benefit in the U.K. to give away £250 of product, plus a one-to-one make up session with Lisa Potter-Dixon. Lisa is Benefit’s head Make-Up Artist in the U.K. and has helped Channel Mum create a range of excellent make up how to videos, specifically designed for mums.

All you need to do to enter is:

  1. Pop over to the Channel Mum YouTube, and subscribe to their channel, and then
  2. Fill out the form below to provide them with the information they need to contact you, should you actually win!

So what are you waiting for, why don’t you give yourself a little treat as a mum, and win some wonderful make-up to help make you look slightly less tired! I know that I could do with this – sadly pretty much every single day…. ;-)

The competition closes on the 8th October, at midnight, so do make sure you don’t miss out; hurry and enter today if you can. The remaining T&Cs are on the Channel Mum website.

While you are on Channel Mum, why not check out the Wake up to make up course they have produced with Benefit as well?

Here is Lisa, and some of the mums from the channel to tell you all about it:

There are six videos in the course covering various topics including:

  • Sorting our those brows,
  • Using concealer,
  • Make-up from years gone by, in a throwback make-up session, and best of all
  • Three minute make up, so we can all get ourselves sorted before the school run, and we all know we need something like this, but it’s a little difficult to actually do it!

Go and enter the competition and subscribe to the Channel Mum YouTube to make sure that you don’t miss out on winning that £250, which has got to give you a head start in revamping the make-up bag for the autumn.

Personally, I find it really, really hard to fit in doing make up as a working mum; even though I work from home. There always seems to be something more important for me to do. A key part of this is that I really don’t have a clue WHAT I am actually doing with make up and have never felt I had the time to learn.

Short videos, that you can watch in your own time, are an idea solution to this. Bite size chunks, that you can even watch on the train on the daily commute, or perhaps even while you are cooking on the iPad in the evening. This enables the make-up help that I so desperately need to be so much more accessible, not just for me, but for other working mums like myself. I sort of invited Lisa to dinner last night, as she told me how to manage my brows while I made the kids tea! She made a very helpful guest… ;-)

Even the seasoned make up lady would be able to find some helpful tips too, so it isn’t just for working mums, it is for mums everywhere, that just want to spend 5 minutes at a time doing something for themselves for a change.

We hope you enjoy entering this competition, and while you are on our site – why don’t you pop on over to the other giveaways that we have to see what else you might be able to win for yourself or the kids?

We have always got a few great giveaways, and it isn’t all about the make-up. We have everything from toys, to books, and anything else in between!
