Work has been a bit crazy lately, so squeezing in a social life, extra projects and time to spend with my loved one’s as well has lead to a few late nights. So here are a few tips and tricks I keep up my sleeve to look less tired and more refreshed.
Keeping your skin hydrated will make your face look smoother and more radiant. If you have dry skin, try putting on just a bit of coconut oil before you go to sleep and then wash off and apply moisturizer in the morning. I do this once in a while and it works wonders.
Drink plenty of water, it keeps your skin plumped and it also helps keeping you alert. Try to cut down on the coffee since it’s dehydrating. If you want to make drinking water more interesting, try a herbal tea!
Wear a light, neutral eye makeup
Steer clear of any dark or smoky shades that will make you look like you haven’t slept for a month. Using highlighter in the inner corners of your eyes and a white or nude eyeliner on the inner rims is the ultimate trick to looking instantly awake.
De-puff your eyes
There are a bunch of cheap tricks to try when it comes to puffy eyes. Cooling your eyes for a few minutes with a cold spoon or ice has worked well for me in the past. Alternatively, place 2 cold, used teabags on your eyes for 10 minutes when you get up. The caffeine in the bags reduces puffiness and makes your eyes sparkle!
Make your skin look well-rested
Dab a bit of Vaseline on top of your cheekbones to make your skin look fresh and dewy! It will give your skin a more glowing, radiant look. Pick lip colors that are extra creamy or stick with lip gloss.
