Notepads at the ready ladies as make-up artist Firyal Arneil lets us in on a few of her trade secrets to help us go from Work to Wow in 10 Minutes. Just follow the fool proof steps below, it’s as easy as ABC!

1. Start with the skin:
Firyal suggests: For a quick, air brushed base in under a minute, I would recommend the growing number of mineral bases that are now available. These can be applied with a large powder brush, buffing the skin very quickly and evenly for a flawless appearance. A recommended brand to try is Youngblood natural loose mineral foundation.

2. It’s in the Eyes:
For speedy eyes try Clinique’s Quick Eyes Cream Eyeshadow, a new sponge applicator product which applies in seconds, needs minimal blending and has a lovely sheen finish. It lasts all evening with no creasing which is an extra bonus. Finish off with Clinique’s latest addition to their mascara range, Lash Power. This is a long lasting, smudge proof mascara which only needs warm water to remove. Great for those lazy, late night make up removal sessions!

3. Be Cheeky:
For pretty, shimmery cheeks, I love Bobbi Brown’s new shimmer powder blushes. These are super blendable

 and highlight cheeks, in very wearable pretty shades for all skin tones. Apply with a fat blusher brush, swirling onto the apples of the cheeks first, and then blending out towards the temples, tapping off any excess powder first. No need to add any extra shimmer too, so a very speedy way to brighten up cheeks!

4. Get Lippy:
Prime lips with a balm such as By Terry Rose balm or Vaseline’s Rosy Lip Therapy, and then apply a lip plumping gloss formula for instant glam. Stila’s plumping glaze available in 5 glam shades.

This look can be achieved in less than 10 minutes and will take you from work to wow with effortless, instant glam appeal…Good luck!
