Pippa O'Connor isn't afraid to let her natural beauty shine through.

The lifestyle blogger recently welcomed her second child Louis in May and said she no longer has time to focus on makeup as she juggles motherhood with her budding media career.

She gave birth to little Louis in May - a little brother for Ollie (three) - with husband Brian Ormond and during an appearance on The Anton Savage Show on Today FM on Wednesday, Pippa said her beauty regime has changed now that she's juggling two babies.

"I was just busy this morning and I suppose as well I just don't have the time to be putting on makeup," she told the Irish Daily Mail.

"I suppose I'm comfortable enough in my own skin literally to not wear it. When I was a teenager with problematic skin I probably wouldn't have been as confidence but I suppose I look after my skin now. "So apart from not having time, I'm happy to not wear any makeup."

The former model previously opened up about the importance of good grooming, saying people "underestimate" the importance of fashion and beauty in improving self-confidence.

"What I always say to the women in the Fashion Factories is that you always have the five or six minutes in the morning to make yourself look good. Those are essential minutes to put on your face and have a shower.

"And once you have the knack of doing something really quick, then you can do it. There is no excuse for someone not to have their hair washed. Or to be in a sloppy tracksuit. It's going to take the same amount of time to put on a pair of nice jeans and some flat boots, so it's about making a conscious effort.

"And you know yourself that on the days you feel awful [those are the days] that you haven't washed your hair, or you're in your pyjamas working or with the kids; then you have a bad day. Why would you do that to yourself? Why would you feel crap? And people say, 'Oh, I'm only going down to the creche, who's going see me?' but it's not about that. It's about how you feel in yourself. "
