1. Remember to wash your face properly

This tip may seem like an obvious one but it's an important rule to follow. So often I get in from work, tidy the house, cook dinner then want to fall straight into bed. In the rush to get to sleep all I want to do is take my make-up off with a wipe but I have learnt to stop myself and do the job properly. Thoroughly cleansing your face makes the world of difference to your skin and has endless benefits. I find I'm much less prone to breakouts, my skin is healthier and more hydrated and it looks fresher meaning I need less foundation the next day.

Now, the problem with washing your face properly is - it's not as easy as it looks on the adverts! The models never seem to get it in their eyes, their hair doesn't get in the way and... they don't end up soaking their selves and their bathroom as they try to rinse the stuff off. I put on a hair band, rub a cleanser into my dry skin, removing the makeup, then use a warm, damp face cloth to rub the product off my face. Using a face cloth also means your skin is lightly exfoliated as well as cleansed, saving you even more time! Choose a cleanser designed for your skin type; even a cheap one will give you lovely skin compared to using wipes.

2. Are you using the right beauty tools?

It's surprising how much time you can save on makeup application when you use the right tools to apply it. For years I used a foundation brush to apply my product; taking care to blend for several minutes and in the right directions to get foundation right under my eyes and around the hairline. These days there are several products on the market that make this job much easier and quicker! My favourite is to use a damp, egg-shaped sponge. I dab the foundation allover my face then lightly bounce the sponge on my skin to get a flawless finish in a matter of seconds.

3. Spot your facial target areas

Most people don't need a full face of foundation every day, many of us just wear it out of habit. Targeting just the areas that need a little cover up will save you time and money, as you will use less product. Buy a concealer that matches your skin tone and apply it under the eyes, on breakouts or on any other blemishes you may have. Use a brush, damp sponge or your finger to blend the product out then set with powder.

4. Lips, make a statement!

Even with only a few minutes to apply your face, your makeup can still make a statement. Take 2 minutes to apply concealer or BB cream on your face, maybe a little blusher and mascara then draw attention to your lips with a bold colour. Orange is said to be the colour of the year but I'm not brave enough for that! Instead I go for a bright pink colour that suits my complexion.
