The start of a new year can be super busy and with the dark days and cold nights i find myself getting incredibly tired as i stay up later and later to try and fit everything in. It doesn’t take long before the late nights start to take their toll and i find myself frantically searching for products to help make myself look less like one of the cast members from The Walking Dead every morning. Here are a few of my top tips for cheating the lack of sleep system:
Clinique Superprimer – When i’m tired my skin goes blotchy and pretty dull. The Clinique Superprimer works wonders to brighten your skintone, even out any blotches and fill in pores giving you a greatly improved base for your foundation.
Body Shop Radiant Highlighter – I love this highlighter with it’s creamy brightening formula that works wonders when mixed with your foundation and applied all over. It results in a lovely dewy look to the skin that’s natural and lightens the ehole face with minimal effort.
Eyelash Curlers – I don’t often reach for my curlers unless i’m going out or if i’m looking extra tired, but curling your eyelashes before applying mascara is a really simple way to open up the area area making you look more awake!
Touche Eclat – This little pen of glory is a classic and a staple for days when you haven’t quite caught all of your forty winks. It’s brightening and light concealing formula is perfect for hiding those nasty under eye bags. Simply tilt your head down and draw the Touche Eclat in the shadows of your bags. Pat out with your ring finger and voila!
Too Faced Candlelight Glow Highlighter – Highlighter is your best friend when tired and the Too faced Candlelight Duo is my absolute favourite. The pretty rose colour is beautiful on your cheeks and the white is perfect for lightly pressing on the inner corner of your eyes to brighten them even more – it’s ideal for those with paler skin tones too.
Nude Eyeliner – White liner is out, nude liner is in. Simply drawer your nude Kohl on the lower lashline to instantly make your eyes look bigger and more awake. Nude is a lot more subtle than white but gives the same brightening effect.
