Staying up all night studying or watching the latest season of Game of throne might have sounded like a good idea at the time, but battling a dull, tired complexion the next morning is never fun at all. There’s nothing less flattering than taking on the day with a sleepy face. Faking that wide awake, “just got 8 hours of sleep” look isn’t impossible though, as long as you have got the right tools and know how to use them!!
Get Dehydrated: A tired complexion can be from not getting enough beauty sleep or lack of hydration. So reach for products that pack a lot of moisture before applying makeup. A face primer is a very good start, because it’s almost like a moisturizer and primer in one.
Conceal: This works wonders at covering up those annoying dark circles from lack of sleep, and it also helps brighten the complexion and give the skin a soft glow. We guarantee that your face will look 10 times better after using a concealer to give it some life.
Highlight the right areas: when trying to fake that “wide awake” look, it really helps to highlight the right areas.A soft glow to the tops of the cheekbones helps give the face a lift and you can also use this to add a bit of light to the inner corners for your eyes and above your brow bone.
Focus on your eyes: The eyes can be an easy giveaway that you are lacking sleep, so make sure you focus a lot of your makeup process on them. First, you will be needing a nice bright shade of eye shadow to really wake the eyes up. Secondly, a dark eyeliner pencil to fill in the waterline of both eyes to help open them up and combat any redness from lack of sleep. Lastly,a volumizing mascara is a must to help make the eyes pop.
