Rule number 1: be organised

First of all, even if you don't have more than 5 minutes to do your make-up, take the time to do it at home. Putting on make-up in the metro or at a red light can be dangerous! To avoid wasting time, however, have everything you need at hand to give yourself an express makeover at any time, whether you’re leaving for work in the morning or before a last-minute appointment. The best way to do this is to place your products – concealer, blush and foundation – in the same drawer or in a small basket in your bathroom or on your make-up table.

When I don't have time to put on make-up, I do the minimum: a little powder, mascara, lip balm and off I go!



Rule number 2: be well-equipped

In order to achieve the best possible results for an express beauty routine, your tools and products must be chosen with care and not be too numerous. So here's what you'll need: a tinted daytime moisturiser, a matching concealer, pressed powder, blush, mascara, lip perfector. And if you have a little more time, you can add a pencil line to your eyes.

Rule number 3: take care of your complexion

In no time at all, you can create a fresh complexion in a few simple steps.

Even out

Before applying your complexion make-up, you should always moisturise your skin with a tinted day cream. Remember to put some on your lips as well. You can then apply your concealer if necessary, followed by your compact foundation powder. Your complexion will be evened out in less than 30 seconds!

Create a healthy glow

To give yourself a healthy glow, apply a little sun or healthy glow mosaic powder to your cheekbones. For a successful result, pick up a small amount of product with your brush, smile at your mirror and apply the powder lightly to the apples of your cheeks. This will create a glow without overdoing it.

Rule number 4: simple and effective make-up for the lips and eyes

For the eyes, start with a touch of sun or healthy glow mosaic powder on your eyelids. It will replace eyeshadow perfectly and give you a healthy glow effortlessly. Then add depth to your look by applying a coat of mascara to your lashes, starting with the bottom ones. While they are drying, do the top. Also highlight your eyelids with some eye liner pencil and/or sculpt your eyebrows to rejuvenate your look. Finally, apply a lip perfector to your lips. And you're made up in just 5 minutes!

Rule number 5: tips for touch-ups

Rule number 5: tips for touch-ups

You're made up in 5 minutes flat! While the result is quite acceptable, if you have to go out in the evening, you will need to do some touch-ups. To freshen up your make-up, put a touch of foundation on a sponge and rub off any traces of smudged make-up under the eyes and around the mouth before reapplying anything else. The solution is simple: remember to take your make-up bag with you to make one or two touch-ups during the day. You will feel beautiful and confident all evening.
