Ultra-fast beauty fixes
✱ SPEEDY NAILS : Painted your nails and need to run out the door? Avoid smudges by holding them under a cold, slow-running tap for one minute – it’ll help set the polish so you can do the party dash!
✱ LUSH LASHES : Before you apply mascara, gently heat the rubber on your eyelash curler with your hair-dryer for a few seconds – a bit like a heated roller for your lashes, it’ll make that curl bigger and better. Just make sure the curlers aren’t too hot before using them! ✱ FREE MAKE - UP : Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay and Lancôme are just a few of the major brands that offer complimentary demos or make-up application (if you buy one of their products). Book one in the afternoon of your night out to get your make-up professionally done – and why not treat yourself to a new lippy while you’re at it. ✱ MASSAGE YOU R FACE : Just two minutes. That’s all it takes to give your skin a radiant glow. Use gentle pressure with the pads of your fingers and gently massage your face in circular motions before you apply your make-up.
✱ BOOST RADIANCE : Is your skin looking tired and dull? Mix a little highlighting fluid – just a tiny bit – with your foundation to give a more luminous finish to your skin.
✱ GET SMOKED : Applying a smoky eye look? Do it first, then apply your foundation, concealer and powder, so you won’t ruin your base with any dark flecks of powder and have to re-do it. It’ll save you valuable minutes.
