Celebrity make-up artist and Rimmel London's make-up ambassador Kirstin Piggott is mum to Eva, two. She says:

An eyeshadow stick is brilliant for busy mornings, as it takes seconds to apply a wash of colour. I run a taupe Rimmel Scandaleyes Shadow Stick (£4.49, boots.com) over my eyelids and under the lashline, followed by nude eyeliner inside my eyes to really open them up.
