She starts by pointing out that having three kids and working full time means that having seven minutes to do her own makeup is actually a luxury, so we have high hopes!

Emma starts with skincare, prepping her skin with AHC's Aqualuronic Emulsion , £20. "In just three pumps it really hydrates the skin," she says. "Your skin in incredibly hydrated really quickly and it works as a beautiful base for your makeup. It doesn't pill  and your skin looks lovely afterwards."

Next she goes in with By Terry's Baume De Rose Lip Balm , £40, which Emma calls the most luxurious lip balm she's ever used.

She follows with concealer rather than a foundation to make her look more awake. Emma's weapon of choice is Sisley's Phyto-Cernes Eclat Tinted Eye Concealer , £75, to hide dark circles. Emma uses her finger to apply it to take away darkness immediately. "Because my skin is so hydrated from the emulsion, everything just blends in. I just pat it in and it hides redness." She also applies it over the top of her eyelid.

Emma curls her lashes with Surratt's Lash Curler , £32, and follows with Westman Atelier's Eye Love You Mascara,  £54,  which gives soft, fluffy, fat lashes. "Double coat for vampy lashes," advises Emma. "It doesn't flake or drop and the brush coats each individual lash without making them stick together."

For the face, Emma uses Chanel's Les Beiges Healthy Glow Bronzing Cream , £43. She applies it under her cheek bones to create warmth and around the hairline and under her jawline. "This is good for boys as well as girls," she says (she's worked on actors Hugh Grant and Paul Mescal.)

On her brows Emma uses Charlotte Tilbury's Legendary Brow gel , £18.50, with the tiny brush to coat her brows, adding texture to brows while keeping them natural.

Emma finishes with red lipstick; Givenchy Deep Velvet in number 36 , £20.05: "It hides a multitude of sins," she says.

She finishes with 30 seconds to spare – it's no wonder the a-listers love her.
