I used to spend a leisurely thirty minutes in the bathroom each morning primping and preening. But since bub arrived I’ve slashed my regime making it ten minutes max, but that doesn’t mean I can’t look glam on the go. Simplify your make-up mantra and see how you can look fabulous in a flash.
Freshly washed hair makes you feel clean and bright but if you haven’t got time to blow-dry, pin it up in a high bun for a just-come-from-the-gym glow. Too time-poor to wash? Welcome to Klorane Extra Gentle Dry Shampoo and the start of a long-lasting friendship.
Tinted moisturiser is a multi-tasking must-have. It not only nourishes the skin but also acts like a foundation to smooth and even skin tone. Try Dove Face Care Protective Tinted Moisturisers SPF 15 or True Solutions True All Day Moisture SPF 30+ Tinted, both of which have the added benefit of an SPF.
Instantly illuminate skin with Vani-T Krush Minerals Liquid Radiance – Luminiser Serum. It cleverly reflects light away from the skin to mask those telltale signs of a sleepless night. Bags: what bags?
Fake fresh when really you’re feeling fatigued with an eyelash curler. These little beauties open eyes, transforming your look from tired to alive. I love Manicare Heated Eyelash Curler or MAC Full Lash Curler. And to really make eyes pop, apply a lash-boosting mascara like Natio Extreme Volume Mascara.
Sweep a soft, peachy blush over the apples of your cheeks for a fresh-faced glow. Maybelline New York Expert Wear Fade-Proof Blush in Berry Sorbet is my fave. Pop some Rimmel London Sweet Jelly Sheer Gloss in Tutti Frutti on your lips and you’re glowingly gorgeous and out the front door.
What’s your quick fix beauty trick?
