We pinned down Handbag.com expert Emily Kent, makeup artist and founder of the The Wedding Hair Company, to find out her tips for a no fuss makeup routine.
Quick makeup tips for a fresh faced look
"Ahead of the actual make up, I'd start with an eye fix from brand new Elemis eye pads (£46, Timetospa.co.uk) as they soften and plump the delicate eye area.
If there is a product to give instant, temporary results these little pads are it. 20 minutes (in which multi tasking is fully do-able as the patches stay welded on) and skin is smoother and fuller," explains Emily.
Step 2: Concealer
"Following that, dab on some Nars Radiant Creamy concealer (£22, Selfridges.com), it is a must and my favourite ever concealer," continues Emily.
"Dot it around the eye and blend with a finger to even out darkness."
Step 3: Time for blusher
"With the skin being totally nude, opt for a non powder blush such as the Benetint range from Benefit (£24.50, Feelunique.com). The newest of the family is Lollitint, a delightful pink blush that stains the skin giving a soft feminine look.
This doesn't really work with foundation covered skin as the textures don't co-operate with one another and this gives a more realistic look of innocent pinched cheeks. Apply a couple of thin lines across the apple of the cheek and blend in."
Step 4: Quick lashes
"Difficult lashes must be curled to get the best out of them," explains Emily. "My best trade secret is to warm the curlers under the hairdryer for a few seconds before to accelerate the process (be careful not to over do it). Shu Uemura's are the best (£20, Houseoffraser.com). Spend on a quality pair once and have them for life."
"Apply one coat of Shu Uemura's Tokyo Lash Mascara (£20, Houseoffraser.com) for an understated aim."
Step 5: Finish the look
"Add a quick slick of lip balm and you're away. Minus the 20mins for the eye patches, the rest takes 5 minutes. An achievable goal by anyones standards."
