5 time-saving beauty hacks that will change your life
Whether your time is zapped getting the kids ready for school or you’re guilty of hitting the snooze button, save precious time with these speedy beauty tricks to keep you looking and feeling great in minutes

Speedy waves

Take all the hassle out of creating a soft tousled wave with good hair prep the night before. Wash and towel dry hair and rake in a handful of mousse. Pull into a classic plait or twist into a bun and sleep on it. In the morning, mist with a smoothing spray to fend off frizz and voila! No hair appliance needed.

Instant eye lift

Need to mask dark under eyes?  Take action with a three-pronged attack. Mix eye cream, liquid highlighter and concealer on the back of your hand and pat on with finger tips to reduce puffiness, perk up tired skin and disguise shadows all in just 30 seconds!

Morning madness may force you to forgo your body moisturiser. Pick up a clever in-shower lotion from Boots at centre:mk that can be slathered onto wet skin – no rinse or wait time required.

Magic sparkle

Just about to leave the house and realised your perfectly painted manicure ain’t so perfect anymore? Panic touch-ups in the same colour are not the answer. Instead sweep a glitter varnish over the top to blur away any chips and add shine.
