Are you in a rush? Are you looking for quick beauty tricks and tips? Beat the clock with these clever products that work in a flash.
5 seconds to a fuller pout
If you weren’t blessed with bee-stung lips, these buys will help to perk up your pout. Too Faced Lip Injection, £22, $28 4500PKR, sounds scary but isn’t you get a slight tingle but softer and fuller lips in seconds.
If an undefined shape is your bugbear, don’t worry, no-one has a perfectly symmetrical mouth. Just use a lip liner to correct and enhance the shape. Apply Buxom PlumpLine Lip Liner £15, $19, 3000PKR, on the outer edge of your natural lip line. You can even move it out a bit to give the impression of a more generous pout.
Or try Revlon Kiss Plumping Lip Crème £6.99, $8.99, 1450PKR, which offers a gentle volumizing effect with a comforting, creamy and glossy finish.
30 seconds to bold brows
Brows are now a little bit like mascara when we haven’t got them ‘on’ we don’t feel ‘done’. Thanks to the nifty triple-blade micro tip applicator on Avon. Brow Tattoo Micro Styler, £9, $11, 1800PKR, creating fuller, more defined arches is a cinch.
20 seconds to brighter eyes
if you want to look instantly more awake without a power nap, roll on Simple Kind To Eyes Revitalising Eye Roll-On, £4.50, $5.70, 950PKR, for an instant under-eye pick-me-up you’ll see the effects immediately.
Then trace a white or peach-toned eyeliner, such as NYX Professional Makeup Wonder Pencil, £4.50, $5.70, 950PKR, along your waterline.
1 minute to gorgeous nails
If your nails are a bit dull or bedraggled, and you should have left the house ages ago, a quick slick of quick dry top coat will give an instantly finished look. It’s clear, so you’d even get away with a few smudges. We like OPI Matte Top Coat, £13.50, $17, 2800PKR.
5 minutes to more voluminous hair
Didn’t have time for a blow-dry? Pop a few BaByliss Boutique Salon Ceramic Rollers, £50, $63, 10,500PKR, in your hair and let them cool while you finish your make-up or brush your teeth. Unroll them and you’ll have a brilliant volume that looks like you’ve had pro-styling.
10 minutes to Smoother Arms
Bumpy skin on your upper arms is a condition called keratosis pilaris and happens when your body produces excess keratin, which can get trapped in the hair follicles. To improve the texture, brush your arms in an upward motion with a body brush on dry skin to encourage the removal of dead skin cells. Then slather on Ameliorate Transforming Body Lotion £22.50, $28.50, 4,550PKR.
10 minutes to A more toned body
Fake tan is brilliant when it comes to instantly looking as if you’ve dropped a few pounds and it’s the best money you’ll spend pre-holiday. As well as helping to reduce the appearance of wobbly bits, it’ll make your legs look slimmer. Try Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs, £6.99, $8.99, 1450PKR. It’s a BB cream for your body.
10 minutes to a Glowing skin
Do your legs feel a little dry after being covered up for too long? Then you need to moisturize them and the rest of your sun-starved bod, pronto. You’ll notice a big difference after using Dove DermaSpa Uplifted+ Body Lotion, £6.59, $8.49, 1350PKR. The lotion works best if you massage it in well, and used regularly it can help to firm up your skin, too.
