Beauty fixes in a flash


We all love to look our best but if time isn’t always on your side, don’t worry.

We have put together a list of easy to follow, quick to use beauty tips that will ensure you look every inch the celebrity even if you are just heading to the shops for a pint of milk.

By mixing a liquid bronzer with firming body cream and massaging it into your arms and legs, you can look like a golden goddess all year long.

On those mornings when you don’t have time to wash your hair, use dry shampoo, then put it up. Tease your hair around your crown, then flip your head upside down and spray the underneath with hair spray. Flip your head back up, gather your hair into a soft, loose bun and secure with pins. Add a little more spray and you are ready to go.

We expect spots as teenagers, which makes adult acne the pits. If you want to save face, use a specific acne treatment, then apply foundation, concealer and powder and no one will see anything other than perfect skin.

We have all looked in the mirror half way through the day and noticed our foundation is caked on and uneven. Don’t panic! Lightly spray your face with water, smooth out with a damp sponge, blend well at the edges and you will be ready to go.

Create a healthy, youthful flush using a peach powder blush. Swirl a clean, fluffy brush in the power then apply in small, circular movements across the apples of your cheeks and back toward your hairline, and you will glow.

You see them on kids all the time, so why not add glittery accessories to your hair for an instant touch of glamour?

If you love selfies, but hate shine, use a mattifying lotion on your t-zone before you apply your make up.

Don’t you love it when you’re just about done and then you go and smudge your mascara? Don’t flap and start over, instead put a little moisturiser on a clean cotton bud and gently remove the smudge from your skin before using the other end of the bud to smooth your foundation. Job done. Fab looking skin.

If you’re going out after work, you don’t have to cleanse your face and start over. Gently pat a light moisturiser over your day ‘face’ to create a fresh, dewy base on which to apply evening make-up.

When you paint your nails, always add a shiny, clear topcoat over the polish. Not only will this give your nails a glossy, salon finish but also prevent chips so your nails always look freshly done.

We all hate dark circles, but these can be covered up using a salmon-hued concealer. The pinkish shade counteracts those pesky bluish undertones and makes you look wide awake and radiant.

If you love lipstick but it’s gone in a flash, we have any easy way to make it last longer. Start by lining your lips with a pencil the same color as your lipstick. Apply your lipstick, blot it with paper and then powder your lips. Repeat these three steps again and the colour will last for hours.
