When you’ve got ten minutes before you’ve got to rush out the door, what does your beauty routine consist of? A slick of mascara or lipstick? If you don’t like the unfinished look, I’ve got 7 fabulous beauty hacks that will help you look like a glamour puss in no time at all.
Make it shimmer
Don’t have time for your usual 20 minute eyeshadow routine? Grab a shimmery shadow and simply dab it onto your eyelid. It doesn’t require any blending and you’ll done in less than a minute.
Get smokey eyes in a flash
Simply take a kohl liner and smudge it into your waterline above your lower lashes. Use a brush to blend it into a soft smokey line. Grab a liquid liner and frame your eyes by lining the top lashes.
Want your brows to wow?
You don’t need to spend ages on your brows to make them look presentable. There’s so many quick fixes out there now that allow you to fill in and shape your eyes in a couple of minutes. My favourite is Rimmel Brow This Way 3-in-1 ultra soft powder.
Want to party after work?
If your makeups faded during the day and you know you’re heading out straight after work you’ll want a quick fix that will make you go from drab to fab. Simply grab a concealer and apply under your eyes, around your nose and chin to brighten the area and make you look fresh again.
Prepare your skin
If you don’t want to spend a long time prepping your skins with creamy primers, why not give a primer water a go. The primer water has a super fine mist that helps to prep skin for makeup and it can even help blur the appearance of blemishes.Why not try Barry M Flawless Hydro Fix primer water (£4.99 at Boots)
Go from day to night
It’s quicker to upgrade your look then you might think. Simply apply a slick of a bold lipstick – like a bright red or pink to brighten up your face and add a bit of wow to your look. My favourite is Charlotte Tilbury in Love Bite (£23 at Net-a-Porter).
All about that base
Basic skin care is more advanced then ever these days and a simple CC cream is perfect for giving skin light cover with a radiant glow. You can blend it in quickly with your fingers so you can easily apply it in a rush, or even on the run. Makeup in the car anyone? Clinique Moisture Surge CC cream (£29 at Selfridges) is a good place to start.
