FIVE-MINUTE MAKE-UP

Whether you’ve slept through your alarm
clock or accepted a last-minute invite,
with these time-saving beauty tricks you’ll
be looking fabulous in a flash, writes beauty editor Emma Robertson

RUSH-HOUR RADIANCE

In need of a quick fix first thing? Reach for multipurpose products in illuminating liquid textures that are easy to apply with your fingertips; the warmth of your hands helps melt make-up into skin for a fast, flawless finish. Wake up tired eyes with a light-reflecting cream shadow, then tie the look together with special-effects mascara

 

LOOK THE PART
Autograph’s Cream Shadow Stick in Sun Gold instantly lights up eyes when whisked over the lids and inner corners. Just add Diego Dalla Palma’s curling and volumising GoGo Mascara

FACE TIME
Streamline your regime with Autograph Tinted Daily Defence SPF30 DD Cream – an all-in-one skin protecting and perfecting base. Apply with fingertips, starting from the centre of the face (where skin needs more coverage) and blending outwards

THE LUNCHTIME RED LIP

Instantly transformative, a simple statement lip will get you all set for that last-minute power lunch. As the ‘it’ shade of the season, red is back in business – and best of all, it takes on a fresh and modern edge when set against pared-back skin and minimal eye make-up: the dream when you need to dash

LIP SYNCH
Use your time wisely – apply your favourite red straight from the bullet first, then trace the edge of the lips with a matching liner for a perfectly defined contour

THE INSTANT BROW LIFT
Balance the look with brushed-up brows to thicken their appearance and lift the eye area. Simply sweep up and over with Limited Collection’s transparent Brow & Lash Gel

DESK TO DRINKS

Keep a capsule collection of beauty boosters in your desk drawer to refresh your complexion without starting from scratch – think concealer to mask imperfections and powder to eliminate shine. Next, take a short-cut to easy smoky eyes: apply a smudgy all-over eyeliner base, then press a shimmer shadow on top for glamour on the go

 

THE EYES HAVE IT
Make eyes your main focal point – blend Stila’s Smudge Stick Waterproof Eyeliner in Lionfish up to the crease. Intensify the effect using Lola’s Eyeshadow in Brown, layered over the lid with your fingertips
