The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their &#39;work-face&#39;. But great make-up doesn&#39;t have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning. And better still - only 8 products. Mary Greenwell, celebrity make-up artist and master of the 8 minute makeover So, clear out your dusty make-up bag and get ready to set your alarm that little bit later. The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible. Just remember Greenwell&#39;s most important advice: &quot;Practice makes perfect.&quot; Spring/Summer 2016 Beauty Trends

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible.

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible.

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible.

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible.

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible.

The only eight items you need in your make-up kit Mary Greenwell&#39;s 8 minute morning make-over MINUTE ONE: Apply a great base You don&#39;t need heavy foundation if you&#39;ve got healthy skin, says Mary Greenwell Credit: REX &quot;Base shouldn&#39;t take long if you&#39;ve been looking after your skin,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A healthy skin will always mean you can get away with less product over the top.&quot; But, it is important to choose your foundation carefully - and invest wisely. &quot;Really think about what kind of finish you want before you shop for a base,&quot; advises Greenwell. &quot;Your biggest investment should be on liquid, cream-based products such as concealers and bases. Save on powder products, which are milled finely at most brands, whatever the price point.&quot; Mary Greenwell&#39;s top picks for foundation? Best for light coverage: Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Chanel CC Cream SPF 50 Complete Correction, £39.60 Best for velvet matte coverage: YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 YSL Fusion Foundation, £22.50 Best for more coverage: Guerlain Parure de Lumière Foundation, £34.65 Best for long-lasting powers: Estee Lauder&#39;s Double Wear Stay-in-Place Makeup SPF 10, £30 Best for covering blemishes: Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £14.40 As for how to apply? &quot;Don&#39;t bother with tools here, I&#39;m a firm believer in fingers for foundation,&quot; she says. Work it in to the face, starting at the middle of the face, where you need most coverage, moving outwards. &quot;And remember to start by applying just a little and adding more if you need it, and only when and where you need it.&quot; MINUTE TWO: Concealer that camouflages &quot;Concealer is the most important step for me,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;A good concealer will actually act as a product to lift the entire eye area and immediately lift the whole face.&quot; Go a couple of shades lighter than your chosen foundation shade, and again plump for fluid consistencies. (&quot;Though for spots you can use heavier, sticker creams,&quot; she says.) Her top picks? Tom Ford&#39;s Concealing Pen, £42, and Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19. Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer, £19 How to apply? &quot;Spread two stripes below the eyes - as if you&#39;re about to go and play American football - and blend in using fingers sweeping up and out. Don&#39;t go too close to the eye as it just closes them up, keep it at least a MM away from the lashline,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;By leaving that small strip free you actually lay the foundations for a smoky eye anyway.&quot; MINUTE THREE: Add some bronzer &quot;Don&#39;t skip this step, it&#39;s absolutely essential,&quot; explains Greenwell. &quot;Be clever and find a good highlighting bronzer, so that you&#39;ve got two easy-to-use products in one.&quot; Greenwell recommends Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light, £38 &quot;I&#39;m inclined to believe that powder bronzers last longer on skin, so I always opt for them if I have the choice - but do go for a finely milled version which looks like cream once it hits your face,&quot; she cautions. And for the application? &quot;Be particular about where you place the brush, too - that being down onto the cheek and back up onto the cheekbone for definition.&quot; MINUTE FOUR: Add definition by contouring Contouring, in the most simplest terms, enhances the structure of the face. By highlighting the good bits (tops of cheekbones, bridge of the nose) and shadowing the not-so-good bits (jaw line and puffed cheeks) it will give shape to the face. But, cautions Greenwell, doing it well requires precision. &quot;You do have to know what you&#39;re doing - placing product in the hollows of the cheeks where you see shadow,&quot; she says. &quot;The fact is when it comes to sculpting, like a lot of skills, you have to practice it a thousand times before it becomes a habit.&quot; Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder, £35 What to use when you have mastered it? &quot;My absolute favourite products are Kevin Aucoin&#39;s The Sculpting Powder (£35), and Rodial&#39;s Instaglam Compact Deluxe Contouring Powder Dark, £52,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;Both take a minute to use with fingers or a slightly angled contour brush if you want.&quot; MINUTE FIVE: Pop on some blusher &quot;Go for just a touch of blush on the apple of the cheek - just enough powder to highlight with a hint of colour,&quot; says Greenwell, who loves Bourjois and Chanel blushers. &quot;Make sure your brush isn&#39;t too giant so you have control.&quot; Bourjois Blush, £7.99 Superdrug MINUTE SIX: Master the 60-second smoky eye &quot;You need a palette with four colours - one for highlighting, and a few options for bronzey brown tones - my absolute favourite shade as it works on everybody,&quot; says Greenwell. Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54 Tom Ford&#39;s Eye Colour Quad in Cocoa Mirage, £54, is her dream ticket. &quot;The pale shade goes under the brow bone, the medium colour over the lid, and the darker shade on at the roots for definition. Easy.&quot; Finish with a mascara. &quot;I love clumpy mascaras, and always go for at least two layers of glossy lacquer - and wearing mascara on the bottom lashes is a personal choice, so I&#39;m not going to be the one to tell you we have to,&quot; says Greenwell. MaxFactor, L&#39;Oreal Paris and Marc Jacobs do excellent versions. MINUTE SEVEN: Fill in those brows &quot;For me this is an optional step,&quot; says Greenwell. But if you&#39;re the type to feel un-done without done brows, she advises you think about what you&#39;re trying to achieve by filling them in. &quot;A powder is best if you need to fill in the gaps as it grips onto skin, whereas a pencil is good for tweaking the shape and elongating brows.&quot; MAC Veluxe Brow Liner, £16 Spend a bit of time finding the best colour and option here. We rate pencils from MAC, £16.50, and powders by Benefit, £24.50. MINUTE EIGHT: Default to you favourite lipstick &quot;Make it easy on yourself: find one lip colour you love, stick to it, and use it all the time,&quot; says Greenwell. &quot;It saves so much time - and just keep it in your bag at all times. And, once you&#39;ve got your confidence up change the texture, and then try a new tone, then colour.&quot; Forget about unnecessary lip liners, though. &quot;If you don&#39;t need to fill in your lips to make them perfect, you don&#39;t need to use it, rely on your lipstick bullet instead to shape and exaggerate.&quot; Steal her shade: The best celebrity lipstick colours Greenwell&#39;s top tip for affordable shades? &quot;Maybelline do excellent lip colours.&quot; Maybelline Color Sensational Vivids, £6.99 MINUTE 8.5: Ward off shine Okay so we cheated, but technically applying a spot of finely milled powder is optional - and only when you need to cut out shine. &quot;You usually only need this when you&#39;re out and about,&quot; says Greenwell. But, even then, there are rules to the application. &quot;There are only two places you want to do that, on your nose and on your forehead -the rest is better left unpowdered.&quot; Our top pick? Vichy&#39;s Dermablend, £15. You&#39;re done! See? The eight minute makeover is possible. Just remember Greenwell&#39;s most important advice: &quot;Practice makes perfect.&quot; Spring/Summer 2016 Beauty Trends

The average British woman apparently spends two whole years of their life applying make-up - with more than 39% taking 40 minutes a day during the week to put on their 'work-face'. But great make-up doesn't have to take so much time or effort. Leading make-up artist Mary Greenwell, the pink-haired British beauty afficianado who has worked with everyone from Kate Moss to Princess Diana, believes eight minutes is all you need each morning.

When Malcolm Jenkins heard about Donald Trump’s tweets condemning National Football League players for kneeling during the national anthem, he was unruffled. Jenkins is a man of convictions and bespoke suits. At 30, he is one of the top defensive players in the NFL. He has the versatility to play multiple positions, shows catlike quickness down the field, and is strong enough to knock ballcarriers off their routes. As a captain of the Philadelphia Eagles, he recently helped lead his team to a Super Bowl title. And as a co-founder of the Players Coalition—an organization that fights injustices disproportionately affecting African Americans—he can cite police-shooting statistics and discuss the finer points of Pennsylvania’s proposed Clean Slate legislation, which would seal criminal records for people charged with minor offenses. So when the president wrote a series of tweets calling for protesting NFL players to be fired, Jenkins just shrugged. “It was like any other troll,” he told me.

Aden Durde can handle waiting a few more days ahead of the big announcement. The American Football coach, sat in the NFL’s UK office in London, has been building towards this moment for years, travelling back and forth between his north London home and United States on a run of internships to increase his experience of coaching in the billion dollar league. On Tuesday the Atlanta Falcons confirmed that Durde, 37, will join the franchise as their new &quot;defensive quality control&quot; coach ahead of the 2018 season, making Durde the first ever British coach to work full-time in the NFL. Born in Palmers Green in North London, Durde’s evolution into a linebackers coach, the heart of the defence renowned for their tackling, seems obvious when you consider his first memory of American Football centres on one of the most imposing defences in the sport&#39;s history. “I remember a poster in my brothers’ room when I was about seven of the 1985 Bears, considered as the greatest defence,” Durde recalls. “And my Mum got me a video of the Bears’ Super Bowl winning season. I watched that over and over again.” The 1985 Chicago Bears are still the most dominant performance ever in Super Bowl history. Bar none! @nfl@nflnetworkpic.twitter.com/2V2SJ0GhDD— Jim Irwin (@irwin65) 1 February 2015 Durde only began playing the sport at 16 with friends in Finsbury Park. After returning home from a spell playing College football in the US, Durde converted from a full back (on the offence) to linebacker and joined the NFL Europe developmental league in 2003. Stints followed with the Scottish Claymores and Hamburg Sea Devils with Durde also having opportunities to train as part of the larger practice squads of the Carolina Panthers and finally Kansas City Chiefs. Durde retired following that last stop in Kansas City in 2008, returning to London and working as a youth mentor in Enfield. “I didn’t know I wanted to be a coach when I was a player,” Durde explains. “I opened up my own business in mentoring and education for kids who were outside of schools and employment, mentoring them and trying to get them back into jobs, and also mentoring athletes. But I missed the culture of football, the accountability. “After three years I realised that I wanted to get back into football, how much I missed it. At the time I was coaching with the [British American Football Association side] London Warriors, based in Thornton Heath, and I believed I could coach at the NFL level, even though I knew I had a lot to learn.” Durde will imminently move to the USA Credit: NFL UK Durde joined the Dallas Cowboys as an intern back in 2014 through the Bill Walsh diversity programme, the scheme named after the late 49ers head coach to ensure opportunities for minority and female coaches. He has since returned to the USA to work again with the Cowboys and twice more as an intern with the Falcons, all while maintaining his role back in the UK as head of the NFL’s International Player Pathway programme, identifying potential NFL talents based overseas. After the 2017 NFL season concluded, Durde received a life-changing phone call from Falcons head coach Dan Quinn. Now he will work assisting the Falcons with game-planning and breaking down opposition film, helping to improve a talented group of linebackers including stars Vic Beasley and Deion Jones. &quot;One of Coach Quinn&#39;s gifts is the person that he is. His authenticity,&quot; Durde explains. &quot;He believes in what he believes in. I found him quite selfless: he gives his time to people and is a good human being. There are a lot of good people at the Falcons and it’s a fun place to work. &quot;[The linebackers] Jones, Beasley, (De&#39;Vondre) Campbell, (Duke) Riley - I like the way the defence is built, so fast, which in today’s game is one of the main components you need. It is all about mismatches, and the more you can cover speed with speed will help you.&quot; Deion Jones #45 of the Atlanta Falcons Credit: GETTY IMAGES The extra attention that comes with being the NFL’s first British coach might faze others. Durde however is taking it in his stride. “I’m obviously aware of it, but it is also one of the reasons why I do it,” Durde said. “ I believe there are good coaches everywhere. Coaches are teachers, motivators, people who look at things strategically, and I believe those people live all over the world. “When I go to NFL teams, having a different accent doesn’t bother me. I feel comfortable in myself and I’m proud to be from here. I love my home. “You have good American Football coaches all in Germany, the UK, France - everywhere. I do not take it lightly that I am one of the first to do it. But ultimately, I have to be myself and keep going. I will enjoy it, and work as hard as I can. That ethos has taken me this far. “That is the only way I know, to get my head down and support the defence. To understand my role and fulfil it to the best of my ability.” Durde’s appointment will only add to the increasing interest in American Football in the UK, after British-born running back Jay Ajayi’s Super Bowl title with the Philadelphia Eagles earlier this year.

He was in Stockwell, 18 years old, looking like an NFL defensive lineman. And now he is where he’s meant to be with the Carolina Panthers,” Durde explains. “There are kids like that all over London and Europe. Someone just has to find them, and they will. But these stories of people pushing boundaries - Jay, Efe - hopefully inspires others to do it as well.” “We have schools calling up every day, looking for assistance and to train up teachers.
