Cate Blanchett admits she often applies her make-up on the go because her mornings are so busy.

Cate Blanchett says her make-up routine is ''fast and furious''.

The Oscar-nominated 'Blue Jasmine' actress hardly spends any time on her appearance in the mornings because she is rushing to get her sons Dashiell, 12, Roman, nine and Ignatus, five, ready for school.

She told Britain's InStyle magazine: ''I have three boys so my mornings are early, fast and furious, and I've had to get my beauty routine down to a few minutes. I'll put on serum, moisturiser and, because I live in Australia, I'll wear SPF 30 every day, even in the winter.''

Cate has developed a host of tricks to get ready on the go, including carrying dry shampoo and minimal make-up.

She added: ''If I haven't washed my hair - which is often, I'll use Philip Kinglsey One More Day dry shampoo and invariably I'll end up applying cream blush and mascara in the car.''

The actress takes an equally laid-back approach to manicures and pedicures and joked she is often embarrassed on photoshoots.

She said: ''I don't have time to get regular manis and pedis. Whenever I'm at a photoshoot, it's terrible - the manicurist will give me a look of horror as if to say, 'When did you last have a pedicure?' ''
