We all have a place for our secret beauty stash: the office drawer, the glove compartment (don’t judge) or the bag that’s seen better days, but having an emergency?AKA Plan B makeup bag is of paramount importance for the ‘what if’ moments in life. 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.

Here are five favourites that have got yours truly out of many a beauty pickle:

Garnier Skin Renew Miracle Skin Perfector BB Cream, €15.99

Thanks to this fresh-scented balm, skin looks bare, only better. It’s moisturising, contains SPF 15 and if you find it’s a tad too oily, a dab of power will sort that out. Perfect for a?tquick and easy application.

MAYBELLINE GREAT LASH WATERPROOF MASCARA, €7.49

This one stays put and does not budge. The lashes look very defined, and the gel in the waterproof formula helps the curve hold in the lash.

Collection 2000 Lasting Perfection Concealer, €4.79

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.

No7 Pop & Glow Cream Blush Stick, €12.95

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.
