What if there’s an impromptu work do to attend? What if you’ve to dash suddenly to an event your life depends on? Or you arrive at your mini-break destination to discover you’ve left your full kit behind. The Horror. But panic not. You should always have an idea of the products?that will tide you over until normal life resumes; these are the fail-safe options available in Boots that you can grab in 10 minutes and still attend said event feeling confident and beautiful.

This one is an under-rated gem to be found in a Boots near you. As it costs less than €5, you would be blamed for having doubts about its lasting effects, but this one ticks many boxes. Available in four colours, it is transfer proof and is a highlighting and concealing manna from heaven. You’ll be waving adieu to those dark circles in no time.

This one does what it says on the tin and will leave you with a subtle glow, but we love how natural it looks. The Rose Blossom shade looks particularly gorgeous on pale skin when applied.
