Every minute is precious… Discover the best tips for a quick and efficient makeover.
The secret to a quick blow-dry is first and foremost the preparation of the hair. Once your hair is washed and dried, remove as much moisture as possible. The best way? Use a highly absorbent microfiber towel. Then spray on a drying gas pedal spray, which protects the hair from the heat of the appliances, while boosting the efficiency of the hairdryer. Finally, brush the strands you want to shape with a brush, heating them under the heat of the dryer.

For quick and efficient styling, use a heated brush. In a single gesture, it creates the hairstyle and sets the movement. You can simply take your ends or a few strands.
No time to leave your mask on in the shower in the morning? Apply it to dry hair the night before and leave it on overnight, or 30 minutes before shampooing, while you eat breakfast.
Once a week, opt for a dry shampoo, which absorbs sebum and gives the hair a fresh look. It can also be used as a styling product when hair is flat.

Once your complexion is evened out, apply makeup in a flash with a multifunctional product or a cream formula that has been diverted from its intended use, in a shade that adapts to all areas of the face: lips, cheekbones, eyelids. Choose from rosewood, brick or translucent pink. Tap the material with your finger on the mobile eyelid, in a halo, the curve of the cheekbone, then on the heart of your lips.
Finish your makeup with a veil of setting spray. Choose one that’s full of pearl and apply it where you want to catch the light, for an express bluffing effect.
Between the base, the two coats of lacquer and the topcoat, the application of polish takes a lot of time. There is a much simpler solution: swap the nail polish for a coloured base. You can choose a beautifying version or a product that combines strengthening and sublimating action. The ideal is to apply two coats, directly on a smooth and perfectly degreased nail. If there are any irregularities, first even out the surface by running a polisher over it.
Can’t live without a foundation? Choose a stick formula, which is easier and faster to apply. It can also be applied locally for a small correction.
Look into the light
Line the lash line with a large gold, sand or bronze pencil. Blend the colour with your finger all over the eyelid to create a halo in record time.
Why make up your entire complexion when only a few areas need to be corrected? Just erase dark circles, shadows and unevenness with a concealer brush. Modulate the coverage of the product according to what you have to hide. Use a light pen if you just need a little glow. Use a concealer if you have dark circles, redness or more noticeable imperfections.
