5 Steps to:

One Minute Beauty Wonders

The Fabled guide to a full high-maintenance look in just five minutes.

1/5 Use Mascara

Mascara is at the top of the list when it comes to guaranteeing you look ‘done’, even if you have nothing else on your face. Defining your lashes will make sure you look alert and finished.

Try: Rimmel Volume Colourist Mascara

2/5 Tidy Brows

Groomed brows are a speedy way to smarten your look with minimal effort. Carefully sweep on a pre-loaded brow brush to fill in any gaps and elongate brows at the outer end.

Try: Clinique Just Browsing Brush-on Styling Mousse

3/5 Go Multi-Purpose

Invest in a selection of versatile make-up, such as stick blusher, creamy shadows and lip tints - these can be used on eyes, lips and cheeks - saving time and money.

Try: Nars The Multiple

4/5 Brighten Eyes

If your eyes are bright you will instantly look wide awake. A creamy coloured eyeliner will eliminate any redness and make your eyes look wide and youthful.
