Selfie-worthy beauty tricks to amp up your face in a flash.
The best time-saving beauty tricks to know now
Whether you are finishing off an essential brief at the office or trying to put the little ones to bed, attempting to get out the door on time for evening social plans never entirely goes to plan.
If you only have ten minutes to spare to take your face from day to dancefloor-ready, you will want to read our quick tricks to looking fresher than you feel in record time.
Wipe the Day Away
No matter how pressed for time, we always start with a clean canvas. There is nothing worse than piling fresh make-up onto oily, old slap – the result often ends looking streaky and patchy. Stash a pack of make-up wipes nearby to quickly clean before spritzing with a splash of rose water or toning spray.
No time for moisturiser, primer and foundation? No problem – just opt for a do-it-all BB cream such as Dior’s Hydra Life BB Crème. This multi-tasking wonder product nourishes and adds a healthy-looking veil of natural coverage.
The Eyes Have It
Blend a dab of light-reflecting concealer (we love the Candleglow Concealer by Laura Mercier) under your peepers set with a quick dusting of translucent powder. If you have time, add a slick of white or beige kohl along your waterline to instantly open and refresh tired eyes.
Dust bronzer onto the sides of your forehead, cheekbones and jawline to easily sculpt. Forgo eyeshadow and use the same bronzing shade to add subtle definition in the crease of your lids. Top off with a few coats of jet-black mascara.
A punchy shot of colour on your lips is a sure-fire way to vamp up your look and mask a tired complexion instantly. Opt for a vibrant shade to suit your skin tone. This season we are reaching for berry reds and deep merlots for a quick hit of colour.
