IT’S al­ways great to find beauty prod­ucts that you know you can rely on to save time and make life that lit­tle bit eas­ier.

Here are a few of my top beauty quick-fix items that won’t let

you down:

IF you’re al­ways busy and find that wash­ing your hair just takes up too much time, dry sham­poo is a must.

For­mu­la­tions have come on leaps and bounds in re­cent years.

Percy & Reed No Fuss Fab­u­lous­ness Dry Sham­poo is def­i­nitely one to try.

Per­fect for oily or fine hair, it will soak up ex­cess oil to give your hair an in­stant re­fresh.

Just give your locks a good brush­ing and spray near to the roots.

WHEN daily life is hec­tic, it can be chal­leng­ing to look ra­di­ant and re­freshed, so a com­plex­ion high­lighter is the key.

Ben­e­fit’s High Beam has be­come a cult prod­uct for adding that ‘nat­u­ral’ youth­ful glow, with its pearlised sheen that re­flects light softly.

IF you just need a lit­tle pick-me up, perk up your colour with a fake tan.

Try James Read BB Grad­ual Face Tan to pro­vide a very nat­u­ral glow.

It’s boosted with anti-age­ing red al­gae too.

HAVE you ever strug­gled to zip up your make-up bag or won­dered why your hand­bag was so heavy?

If so, a multi-func­tion prod­uct like the aptly named The Mul­ti­ple by NARS comes up trumps.

Use it on your lips, cheeks, eyes and body.

The creamy ver­sa­tile for­mula and sheer colour means it can be eas­ily blended.

Japonesque’s Go Curl Eyelash Curler is a handy size to take on the go with you, or to slip into your travel bag.

IF fresh air or a sporty life is your kind of thing, then pro­tect­ing your skin against the el­e­ments is im­por­tant.

Bobbi Brown’s SPF 50 Pro­tec­tive Face Base is a mois­tur­is­ing lo­tion that comes packed with vi­ta­min E, al­gae and chamomile to calm and soothe the skin.

The high fac­tor SPF means you don’t have to worry about car­ry­ing a sun screen.

DO you want a mois­turiser that also gives you colour as well as high SPF?

Kiehls BB Cream of­fers high SPF50, plus a hint of colour, and it evens out ir­reg­u­lar­i­ties in skin tone.

EN­VI­RON­MEN­TAL pol­lu­tants can be harsh on the skin, es­pe­cially around the eyes.

Once you hit your thir­ties, it’s time to start in­vest­ing in some eye cream to pro­tect the skin and fight the fine lines.

A mir­a­cle worker is Phi­los­o­phy’s Mir­a­cle Worker Anti-Age­ing Retinoid Eye Re­pair.

This silky cream will help smooth your un­der-eye area and re­duce dark cir­cles.
