Slap and dash: Makeup for when you’re in a hurry

Slap and dash: Makeup for when you’re in a hurry

We’re at that time of the year in which calendars are packed, schedules full, and it feels as though there’s never enough time.

Christmas parties encroach on our sleep and leave us hungover, then the mornings are all the more painful.

If you’re a makeup wearer, carving out the time to apply a full face might feel like a challenge.

Luckily, there are products built with speed in mind, along with slicker ways to apply makeup staples to get the job done faster.

These are our top picks for the times you need to get slap on – and dash off.

Morphe2 Quad Goals Multi-Palette

A full face in one (Picture: Selfridges)

Get it for £16 from Selfridges.

Designed with travel in mind, this is the perfect companion for Tube journeys.

It has eyeshadow, blusher, tinted lip balm and highlighter in one, and comes in a variety of shades.

MAC Cosmetics Viva Glam X Keith Haring Lipstick

Add on mascara with a red lip and you’re good to go (Picture: MAC Cosmetics)

Get it for £17.50 from MAC Cosmetics.

A bold red with not much else is a classic way to do put-together makeup.

Do good for charity while quickly sorting your makeup, as 100% of the money goes to support those living with HIV and AIDS.

Laura Mercier Shimmer & Glow Caviar Stick Eye Colour Trio

Swipe on and go (Picture: Harrods)

Get it for £25 from Harrods.

Carrying around powders can be tricky – there’s the risk of them smashing and the need for brushes potentially too.

These eyeshadow sticks get the job done quickly for a simple yet polished finish.

Bobbi Brown Luxe Illuminating Duo Soft Bronze

Bronze and illuminate in one go (Picture: John Lewis)

Get it for £37 from John Lewis.

Already sold out in most places, you’ll want to grab this release soon.

Available as a bronzer and blush, you have two powders to feign a healthy, perky complexion, with one more glowy than the other.

The mirror inside works well on the go, too.

Bite Beauty Upswing Full Volume Mascara

Full lashes with minimal effort (Picture: Boots)

Get it for £26 from Boots.

For a mascara that loads on volume quickly, look no further.

It dries down sharpish too, so there’s low risk of smudging.

Suqqu Sheer Matte Lipstick

A gentle wash of colour (Picture: Suqqu)

Get it for £33 from Selfridges.

Soft, sheer colour is exactly what you need on hurried mornings because accuracy becomes less important.

This muted chestnut shade won’t launch until January (we’ve tested it and it’s divine), but other colours in the same winning formula are available from now.

Victoria Beckham Beauty Satin Kajal Liner

Draw and smudge (Picture: Victoria Beckham Beauty)

Get it for £22 from Victoria Beckham Beauty.

Recently released in a new colourway (and instantly selling out), these liners are popular with good reason.

They apply along the eyes without dragging and can be smudged out as eyeshadow using just a finger.

This bronze shade is ideal for rushed mornings – given the softer tone, any slight irregularities won’t stand out in the same way black liner would.

Glossier Stretch Concealer

Use this all over for subtle coverage (Picture: Glossier)

Get it for £15 from Glossier.

Though sold as a concealer, this works well all over the face as a 2-in-1 for the times you don’t have foundation to hand.

Leaving a glowing complexion, no one will know you didn’t get a good night’s sleep.
