For most women, time is of the essence. Whether you’re someone who’s always running out of the door late or someone who prefers a simpler routine, we’ve got you covered. Follow these quick and easy make-up tips to look younger in minutes.
Speed up Your Make-up Routine
- Choose an all-in-one base such as Maybelline’s Dream Fresh BB Cream SPF 30 ($22.42, Amazon) and apply a pea-size amount with your fingertips blending from the center of your face outwards. The light coverage needs little blending – perfect if you’re in a rush.
- While your base dries, get started on your eyebrows. Brush them through with Bobbi Brown’s Natural Brow Shaper ($39.99, Amazon). This handy cream-gel formula easily fills and tames brows in seconds — it’s easy to use and comes in seven different shades.
- The key to looking fresh in a flash is blusher. Pat a small amount of Maybelline’s Dream Touch Blush in Peach ($11, Amazon) onto the apples of your cheeks, blending from your cheekbones to your temples.
- A pretty pink lip color will instantly help lift your features. We like Clarin’s Instant Light Natural Lip Perfector ($36.05, Amazon) in 05 Candy Shimmer, which is quick to apply and gives a lovely pop of natural color. Finish with a coat of Bourjois Volume 1 Seconde Ultra Black Mascara ($16.61, Amazon) to instantly open up your eyes.
Wake-up With Your Skincare.
- Swap your usual day cream for one containing skin-brightening Vitamin C — you’ll get instantly perked-up skin with minimal effort. We like Andalou Naturals Probiotic + C Renewal Cream ($16.89, Amazon), because it’s enriched with moisture-boosting ingredients to give a healthy glow.
- For an extra boost, apply a warm flannel to your face for ten seconds before applying. This encourages pores to open and allows your skin to really get the most from your face cream.
Get Great Hair in a Hurry
Give flat hair a boost without having a re-wash. Spray a medium-hold hairspray to the underside of the roots. Let it dry before brushing through and blasting your hair upside down with the hairdryer.
