#1 Apply liquid foundation this way: 
Spread it between your palms and fingers, and apply it as you would your moisturiser. Makeup artist Larry Yeo says this speeds up blending and makes foundation look less streaky.

#2 Use a two-in-one cheek and lip tint. 
You won’t have to fiddle with a separate blusher and lipstick. 

#3 Don’t bother with the hairdryer. 
Spritz a texturising hairspray over damp locks, scrunch with your hands, and leave tresses to air-dry.
