10 MINUTES TO... GET BEAUTIFUL ON-THE-GO
Believe it or not, your commute doesn’t have to conflict with having flawless make-up. Meet our favourite travel-friendly hacks that make en-route beauty a breeze…
1 No time to tidy up eyeshadow fallout? No problem. Pencil sticks prevent eyeshadow dropping on your face – score. We love Lord & Berry #REGLAM Crayon Eyeshadows, £14.
2 Save precious handbag space by stocking up on multitasking make-up products such as Benefit’s Lip and Cheek Tint, £24.50. This can perfect two aspects of your look with zero extra effort on your part.
3 When applying make-up to your eye area, the last thing you want is for public transport to cause you to jab yourself in your peepers… Ouch! Steady your hand by gently resting your little finger on the top of your cheekbone. Simple, yet effective.
4 Wave goodbye to hauling stacks of brushes about by getting yourself a beauty blender. Using the handy sponge to blend in every part of your make-up will save you money and all that faffing around with a bunch of different brushes on the train. Look loves Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge, £5.99. 5 Can’t be bothered with that tricky-to-master contouring malarkey? Ditch the bronzer and opt for strobing instead to achieve that wide-awake look in seconds. Just apply highlighter to the top of your cheekbones, bridge of your nose and sides of your temples.
6 If you make a mess when applying your winged eyeliner (don’t worry – it happens to the best of us), no need to panic. Instead of removing and re-appyling, just use a drop of high-coverage concealer to tidy up your wing and resume your flawless make-up status.
