Speedy Beauty For The School Run


Our senior makeup artist Laura shares her tips for a quick beauty boost on busy mornings. As a working professional and busy mum, she knows how little time there can be! Here are her top 4 products to get ready to head out the door in just 3 minutes or less. Apply with fingertips, for an effortless routine and a glowing finish.

As long as you have cleansed away your make-up the night before, the morning routine doesn’t have to be complicated to get great results. I use Cosmetics à la Carte ultra-gentle Rosewater Tonic to freshen my face and eyes. The rose essential oil is really soothing, and it’s full of hydrating, pH balanced ingredients to leave skin feeling soft, smooth and ready for the day ahead. Plus, it smells so gorgeous it allows me to feel pampered even if I’m in a rush.

If you have a few seconds more, dab on Hydralift Eye Serum. This contains a blend of botanical extracts to cool, hydrate and de-puff the eye area, which is a great stand-in for actual beauty sleep!

If you only have time for one step, go for Secret Light Serum Concealer. This will reduce the dark shadows around the eyes and any uneven skin tone across the face, and you can apply it in a hurry without worrying it will look obvious.

It has a brightening effect, but because we can create a bespoke blend for you, it will match your natural skin tone perfectly and won’t cause the ‘ski goggle’ effect.

Paleness is also a tiredness giveaway, so I cheat with "Angel" Bare Blush Light. Not only does this give a brightening burst of soft pink, but the dewy smooth sheen helps skin be hydrated and look fresh and healthy. Apply to cheekbones, brow bones and cupid's bow.
