It takes two hours to get everyone out of the door in the morning, but only 10 minutes to spend on yourself. These products will make you glow, hide tired eyes and wake up your face with minimal effort and time.
Ace of base
'For the effects of foundation, concealer and powder in a single step, buff BareMinerals Original Foundation SPF 15 (£25, bareminerals.co.uk) into your skin,' says make-up artist and skincare expert, Nathalie Eleni. 'You can then dampen a concealer brush to target blemishes.'
Smudge a cream shadow onto lids to diffuse any tired-eye redness. Try Stila Smudge Pot in Kitten (£13, boots.com) or Charlotte Tilbury Colour Chameleon in Champagne Diamonds (£19, charlottetilbury.com).
If you want a little more definition, switch to a chunky eye pencil in black or brown, such as Maybelline Eye Studio Master Smokey (£5.99, boots.com). It takes seconds to apply along your lashline.
Curling lashes might seem like an indulgent step, but it takes less than a minute and will really open up your eyes. Try the Japonesque Power Curl Eyelash Curler (£20, johnlewis.com).
Stroke of genius
Mascara is key. 'A wand with plastic bristles will give thick, defined, clump-free lashes in one stroke,' says make-up artist Sonia Deveney. Try YSL Baby Doll (£24.50, yslbeauty.co.uk) or Benefit They're Real (£19.50, benefitcosmetics.co.uk).
A flush of colour on your cheeks will instantly wake up tired skin. Try Topshop Cream Blush in Afternoon Tea (£7, topshop.com), which is easy to blend and sets to a powder finish.
Lip and cheek flush
Alternatively choose a lip and cheek colour to add a subtle flush of colour to your face. Kiko Glow Touch Lips & Cheeks (£6.90, kikocosmetics.co.uk) blends on easily and gives a dewy, healthy finish.
Switch to a tinted grooming gel to quickly fix brows into place while adding definition. Try E.L.F Eyebrow Treat & Tame (£3.75, eyeslipsface.co.uk)
