Spend an hour doing your make-up in the morning and end up being late to work? Maintaining a short make-up regime is all about ensuring the skin is prepped properly. Make sure you use an exfoliator at least three times a week if you have normal skin, or once a week if you have dry or sensitive skin. Slather on the moisturiser at nighttime to ensure you wake up with a glowing complexion and that’s the first part of your routine done! Base Choose a base that’s quick and easy to apply. BB creams are still as popular as ever and it’s not hard to see why. Choose one which has a SPF of 30, so will protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays while also offering a light layer of coverage. Apply with a blending sponge to get a flawless finish. Once you’ve got your base on, apply an all round concealer to cover blemishes and dark circles under your eyes. Sweep on a little powder to finish your look and a touch of blush as well. We love multi-tasking products that can be used as a lipstick and blusher. Eyes If you don’t have much time in the morning, then the last thing you want to do is to worry about creating a perfect smoky eye with lashings of liner. In fact, eyeshadow is entirely optional, with mascara the only essential part of your eye make-up. Just a few coats of mascara and you’ll end up looking like you’ve spent hours painstakingly applying your false lashes for a perfect flutter. Lips If you have a simple eye, then you can go heavier on the lip colour if you wish. Burgundys and oxbloods are on trend for this season, but if that’s too bold for you, stick with a lip balm with a touch of colour. Finish The perfect way to complete your look is to spritz some make-up fixing spray over the top, to ensure it stays in place all day. One spritz and your 10 minutes are up!
