    Safe in the knowledge that there’s a good hour to spare after your Saturday morning hair appointment finishes and lunch with the girls starts, you decide to go to the salon make-up free. You have cleansed, toned and moisturised, of course. Unfortunately, your stylist’s last client was late which delays your cut and colour. There are now less than forty minutes to go until you’re due at the table and you’re yet to have your locks blow-dried. Although you’re trying to remain calm, you had wanted to make a real impact when arriving at the bistro.

    Our solution? Sit back at relax until the final spritz of hairspray has been misted over your freshly coiffed ‘do. By following these simple steps, you’ll see how easy it is to create a fresh and fabulous look at moments like this when you’re cautiously clock watching.

    If you’re looking a little washed-out, massage Clarins BB Skin Perfecting Cream SPF25 around your face using a gentle sweeping motion. This product – which also helps to mask lines and blemishes – is ideal if you’re planning to while away the afternoon with your friends outside too as it contains sunscreen. Now that your complexion is positively radiant, you might like to bring some definition to the apple of your cheeks with a dab of Clarins Multi-Blush. Available in four different shades, this blusher turns from a soft cream to a light powder during application. A real two-in-one beauty buy, it can also be used to give a lips a natural-looking matte colour.

    Now you’ve got a rosy glow, luminous base and perfect pout, it’s time to pay attention to your eyes. While there’s no time to blend shadows or darken your brows, a coat of Clarins Wonder Perfect Mascara will go a long way. Lift the wand from root to tip for visibly longer, fuller and curly lashes.
