Here at THE FILE HQ, we like things that are quick, but effective. Like a pitstop at Café de Flore during fashion week or a Piccolo latte between meetings. Time is money, and more money means more Isabel Marant.

So with that in mind, we keep our morning beauty routines short and sweet. We’re in it for a good time, not a long time #always.

And with the right products + a few tricks up your sleeve, there’s actually a lot you can do in five minutes, like give yourself a brow lift (which kind of doubles as a complete face lift, trust us – just try it) or whip your nails into shape on your lunch break when someone calls a spontaneous post-work Pinot.

We’ve rounded-up five of our favourite things you can do in five minutes or less to get your babe on anywhere, any time.

Watch, and learn.
