4 Makeup Tricks To Make You Look More Awake

Of course, sleep is really important for beauty and health in general, but sometimes we just can’t afford to sleep enough hours. It certainly doesn't mean that we should go to work/school, looking tired and exhausted. Here are 4 makeup tricks that will help you to look your best even after a few hours of sleep. Just take some extra time in the morning to follow these steps in your makeup routine, and there will be no sign of a restless night.


1. Concealer. First of all, it’s really important to cover up those dark circles and puffy eyes, because this is the first spot on your face that suffers from the lack of sleep. You should really concentrate on this area and cover all the space underneath your eyes. Choose a concealer 2-3 shades lighter than your skin tone to brighten up this area. It will really make your eyes pop. For even better result, try to apply a pale pink shade of concealer before the regular one in order to correct the purple-greenish color of your circles.



2. Dewy Skin. Highlighters are your best friends in this case. Choose the ones with illuminating effect, instead of sparkles. Add a small amount of product on the cheekbones, in the inner corners of the eyes and underneath your eyebrows. This will help to create the illusion of healthy, dewy skin.



3. Blush. What is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think about fresh and well-rested face? Of course, it’s blush. Put on some blush on the apples of your cheeks, and you immediately spot a huge difference. Pink-toned blushes would work the best, since they give a more natural look. Also, give preference to the cream blush, because they tend to have a better pigmentation than the powder ones.


 
4. Red lipstick. Red lipstick is like a shot of espresso for your face. Put it on and it will make you look a thousand times more awake in just a few seconds. It also is a great way to refresh your makeup through out the day. You don't need any other makeup products. Just take a tube of red lipstick with you and reapply it during the day for a fresh look. The pop of color on the lips will turn attention away from tired eyes and toward your defined lips.



After these 4 easy steps you'll look like you just got 10-hours beauty sleep.


Thanks for reading!

LOVE,
Alina

  1. Я совсем недавно открыла для себя хайлайтеры - и это просто незаменимая вещь! А вот с красной помадой пока еще "не дружу", никак не удается подобрать нужный оттенок:( Спасибо за статью, она (увы) вечная и актуальная(а как бы хотелось просыпаться всегда свеженькой и с легким румянцем, прям как в фильмах:)

    1. Да, это точно, но в таком случае нужно всего несколько трюков с макияжем, и свежий look c румянцем, сияющими глазами и кожей будет готов :)

      Хайлайтеры - это моя любовь! Мгновенно преображают лицо!
