When you're in a rush in the morning, you definitely don't have time to slowly and precisely apply your makeup. You need products which can do it all and will quickly perk up your complexion.

We've gathered together our favourite multi-tasking beauty products to use on when you don't have a moment to spare. Add these little wonders into your routine and you will look wonderful instantly - no one will have any idea that you were rushed off your feet.

Tinted moisturiser

Tinted moisturiser is a must-have multi-use product in any beauty lovers makeup bag. A hydrating moisturiser combined with just the perfect amount of coverage will nourish your skin, even out your skin tone and create a healthy-looking, dewy complexion.

Instantly brighten and boost your skin with the Origins GinZing Energy-Boosting Tinted Moisturiser. The multi-tasking formula adds sheer, perfecting coverage to your skin whilst adding some serious radiance to your skin.

Enriched with SPF40, the Ginzing Tinted Moisturiser protects your skin from UV rays whilst delivering much needed moisture to your complexion. A blend of Coffee Beans and Panax Ginseng work to deeply hydrate and rejuvenate your skin, leaving your complexion glowing and revived in minutes.

A pop of colour

Applying powder blush, rich in pigments, and a seperate lipstick can really take time and precision. When you haven't got a moment to spare, a nourshing, cream blush which can be used on both cheeks and lips is ideal.

The iconic Pot Rouge from Bobbi Brown is a dreamy multi-use product for when you're in a rush. The rich cream colour glides onto your skin, instantly perking up your complexion adding a pop of colour to your look.

Perfect for on-the-go application, the ultra-creamy formula blends seamlessly into the skin, looking ever so natural and giving you a 'just-pinched' flush.

The Bobbi Brown Pot Rouge can even be applied onto your eyes if you love warm, pink-hues on the eyes. Simply apply and blend out with your finger tips.

Glow on the go

Adding a little glow to your complexion is the perfect way to look like you've spent a long time on your makeup with minimal effort.

The NARS The Multiple is the perfect on-the-go product for adding a gorgeous lit-from-within glow to your skin. The creamy, stick formula is a dream to apply and needs little work or blending once placed onto the skin.

The sheer but buildable colour lasts all day on the skin and can be applied onto your cheeks, lips, eyes and body.

We love using the shade South Beach -  a warm, shimmering apricot shade - as a shimmering bronzer and on our eyes to add a little definition. Copacabana - an opalescent pink pearl - is our shade of choice when we want a pale highlight on our skin and a subtle eye look.

Eye and brow definition

A simple, neutral brown eye liner is a wonderful multi-use product to use when you're a little stretched for time in the morning. Perfect for defining and shaping your brows, eyes and even your lips, a soft brown liner can really make a difference to your final look.

The Elizabeth Arden High Drama Eyeliner in Espresso is the perfect texture for a multi-use eyeliner pencil. Slightly waxy, the High Drama Eyeliner glides across the skin but lasts all day, creating natural looking definiton.

Use as an eyeliner on your lashline to create subtle definition and apply onto your eyebrows in light, hair-like strokes to build up colour and create a natural looking, scultped brow.
