Beauty Colourfix Cream Colour, £18 | Danessa Myricks

How It Saves Time: Created by self-taught make-up artist Danessa Myricks, this versatile product will add a pop of colour to eyes, lips or cheeks. Save time by applying it to several areas at once – you can even blend these cream colours with other products to enhance and manipulate different shades. Genius.

Antisocial Overnight Dry Mask, £30 | IGK

How It Saves Time: Great for those who don’t have time – or simply can’t be bothered – to apply a traditional hair mask and wait, simply mist this dry mask onto dry hair before you go to bed. Overnight, it bonds to the hair’s proteins to restore lacklustre strands, so you wake up with fresher hair that’s ready to be styled. At the same time, it conditions and protects hair against future heat, revealing glossier-looking strands that appear freshly washed.

Airebrush Duo, £135 | T3

How It Saves Time: This innovative heat styling brush will help you achieve a salon-worthy blow dry in minutes. Use it like straighteners, brushing it through wet or damp hair to tame frizz. On dry hair, you can use it to create a light bouncy blow-out effect by twisting and curling it through the ends. With two interchangeable attachments and multiple heat settings, it’s a lazy girl’s best friend.

Stamp and Drag Liner, £15 | Ciate

How It Saves Time: No matter if you’re a liner novice or cat-eye expert, this stamp-and-go pen cuts out the faff. Double-ended, use the stamp side on the outer corners of your eye to achieve a perfectly symmetrical wing. Then, go in with the pen tip to achieve your desired finish by connecting the wing to your lash line to neaten things up.

Vitamin E Blush & Glow Duo, £23 | MakeTheMake

How It Saves Time: This two-in-one product consists of a silky cream blush on one side, and a glossy highlight on the other. Enriched with vitamin E, this also improves the look of skin with each wear. Use it as part of your morning make-up routine, then throw into your bag for easy on-the-go touch-ups throughout the day. We recommend using your fingertips for a natural finish.

Face Mist, £30 | Amanda Harrington

How It Saves Time: This lightweight mist is the secret to skipping foundation. Simply spray evenly onto skin (you don’t even need to blend it out thanks to the ultrafine atomiser) and wait for the colour to develop. It’s also infused with anti-ageing collagen, including CQ10, which helps to firm, lift and give skin extra antioxidant protection.

Setting Spray & SPF, £39 | Coola

How It Saves Time: Both a setting spray and organic sunscreen all in one, spritz skin with this to set make-up, and protect it simultaneously. With mattifying powers, this prolongs the life of your make-up and reduces the build-up of grease or excess shine. We love the refreshing natural green tea scent that keeps the skin feeling hydrated and nourished.

Double Ended Volume Set, £35 | Revitalash

How It Saves Time: This convenient, award-winning two-in-one product eliminates the need for lash curlers. Use the prep formula to prime lashes, before going in with the other end to create fluttery luxe-looking lashes with the richly pigmented mascara.
