Only a few min­utes to spare? You can still look su­per-pol­ished at the school gates – just fol­low th­ese steps for (al­most) in­stant, fool­proof glam.

1 Ap­ply a pea-sized amount of BB cream or foun­da­tion to moisturised/primed skin. Sweep over eye­lids and lips to pro­vide a longer-last­ing base for eye­shadow and lip­stick.

2 Us­ing your ring fin­ger or a con­cealer brush, hide blem­ishes and un­der-eye shad­ows with a light-re­flec­tive con­cealer, re­mem­ber­ing to ap­ply to any red ar­eas around the nose too.

3 Ap­ply pressed pow­der to the T-zone only with a blusher brush.

4 Blend a creamy stick eye­shadow over the eyelid us­ing your fin­ger, and into the socket line for def­i­ni­tion.

5Curl lashes for 10 sec­onds on each eye if you have time. Ap­ply two coats of mas­cara to open up the eye, ap­ply­ing to up­per lashes only to min­i­mize the chances of get­ting any smudges un­der the eye.

6 Us­ing your lip­stick as a blusher, ap­ply two dots to the ap­ple of each cheek, and blend out with your fin­ger for a nat­u­ral flush.

7 Ap­ply one coat of lip­stick, blot and ap­ply again, or ap­ply a slick of coloured gloss.

8 Grab the kids and get out that door!
