7 fast beauty fixes
Heading out on the town but only got about six minutes and 45 seconds to step out the door? Yep, we’ve all been there. It’s moments like these that you immediately regret that Girls marathon followed by a two-hour siesta and wish you started getting ready forever ago.
Stress less! There are actually loads of beauty tricks and products that are designed to make your beauty prep sesh super speedy so you can get gorgeous in a flash. The countdown is on so get ready, get set, go!
Perfect your complexion in one step
Forget the exhausting process of applying a foundation, then concealer, followed by a pressed powder. Cover all bases with an all-in-one foundation like Nude by Nature Pressed Mineral Cover. Simply sweep it onto your skin with a large fluffy brush and build it up for a medium to full coverage with a shine-free, matte finish.
bh tip: The night before, tackle fine lines with an anti-ageing mask like Timeless Truth Bio-Cellulose Apple Stem Cell Collagen Mask. It’s formulated with all sorts of skin-loving goodness for a plumper, smoother and more hydrated complexion in just fifteen minutes.
Conquer your contour
Nail a bronzed glow, contour and shimmering cheek sheen with an all-in-one contouring kit like Designer Brands Contour Kit and Australis AC ON TOUR Cream Highlighting and Contouring Kit. Simply sweep the darkest shade in the hollows of your cheeks and along your jawline, and the lightest shade on the top of your cheekbones, along your brow bones and across your Cupid’s bow for a seriously enviable glow.
Get smokin’ in seconds
Think the perfect smoky eye takes hours to create? Prepare to be surprised – all you need is a black chubby eyeshadow pencil and smudger like Maybelline New York Master Smoky Eyeshadow Pencil and a volumising mascara like NYX Cosmetics Provocateur Mascara. Line your upper lid with the eyeliner and gently smudge the line outwards and upwards with the smudger. Finish with a few coats of the mascara for megawatt eyes with next to no effort!
