How to get pretty in 10 mins or less
Even when you’re running late
You’re in la la land, sauntering on a shimmering beach sporting a bikini body to die for when your alarm goes off for the nth time. You get up bleary eyed and the time sends you into overdrive. Your hair’s a mess and, your eyes barely open and you have to be ready in five. So what do you do? Panic not. There are some tried and tested ‘five in five’ tips that will have you putting your best face forward.
Tinted moisturizer with SPF
This is one of those ‘impossible to live without’ products. It gives you the best of all worlds, foundation, sunscreen and moisturizer all rolled into one amazing product. A good tinted moisturizer eliminates the need for a separate foundation, and with the added SPF, you can skip the sunscreen routine completely. We like Garnier and Neutrogena.
Cheek and Lip Tint
Invest in a combination two-in-one product. Shop around for the right tint to suit your complexion. Try out the cream and gel-based blushes on offer to get that quick fix dash of fresh youthful hint of color. Try Maybelline.
Eyeliner or Mascara
Both or even one will open your eyes wide and make you look wide awake. Invest in water proof mascaraespecially if it’s hot or humid to avoid that scary mid-afternoon raccoon look. Try the Volum’ Express Hyper Curl Mascara application process that builds lashes making them look both full and lush.
Probably the best makeup invention thus far. Even if your hair looks like a raggedly tail, this miracle product will soak up excess oil and add some serious volume to your tresses. Try a brunette shaded dry shampoo because the brown tinted powder will be tougher to spot. We like TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo.
The best pick up ever. Even if you think you’re not looking your best, but you smell nice you’re bound to feel better instantly.
