How to get easy, glam makeup in just ten minutes

With the right products and a little guidance, it’s easy to create a glamorous makeup look that brings out your natural beauty.

Start with a luminous base
Great makeup starts with a glowing base. For a soft, lit-from-within effect, try a tinted CC cream like Marcelle CC Cream SPF35 CDA, which combines the blemish-busting benefits of a BB cream with 24K-gold light-reflecting pigments and SPF 35. The hypoallergenic formula melts into skin like a dream and provides dewy, radiant coverage. Apply it with your fingers, a sponge, or your favourite foundation brush.

Choose a long-wear shadow
When applied correctly, glamorous makeup should never travel or budge. The reality? When you’re pressed for time, it can be a challenge to get your look to stay in place. Luckily, Rimmel London Wonder'Cloud Eye Shadow has the solution. With a dreamy whipped texture and a built-in primer, this ultra-blendable long-wear formula is not only waterproof, it’s crease-proof, too.

Use great brushes
Whether you go for a dramatic smoky eye or a sultry diffused wing, having quality brushes is key to precise shadow placement. The limited-edition Quo Beauty Smoke Show Smokey Eye Brush Set includes four cruelty-free brushes to help you ace any look: an all-over shadow brush, a pointed liner brush, a fluffy crease brush for easy blending and a shader brush for subtle smudging.

Ink your lashes
Complete your glam eye look with long, lush lashes. For incredible length and separation, try Maybelline Lash Sensational® Sky High Washable Mascara, which is infused with bamboo extract and fibres to extend every lash. It also boasts an exclusive “flex tower” brush to reach each hair.

Dial up the glam
Double up on drama with fluttering false lashes that make an impact. Remarkably wearable and easy to apply, Quo Beauty Glamour Lash can be reused for up to three weeks, so you can repeat this head-turning look as often as you please. Pro tip: For seamless application, prep your lashes first with mascara from root to tip, and for best results, apply with Quo® Full Eyelash Adhesive 1.

Finish with a lip
Finish off your look with a swipe of moisturizing colour for kissably soft lips. Revlon Super Lustrous™ Lipstick nourishes lips with ingredients like vitamin E and avocado oil, and it’s available in a range of super-flattering shades and four finishes: crème, matte, pearl and sheer, to suit any mood.
