Ever had one of those rough nights you barely could sleep at all? Of course you did. Whether you were out partying or just in taking care of your sick child, we all know how those affect your look the next day: feeling tired makes you look tired! Plus, who can think about anything else than a cup of coffee on those awful mornings? Fortunately, we have a few tips that will help you look awake even when you’re anything but.
This is especially important if you’ve been drinking, but it’s something you can do whenever you didn’t get enough sleep. Drink water! Keep a water bottle with you during the day, and refill it whenever necessary. You probably know the normal daily input is 2 litres, so you can go even further on a rough day. More than that, use a facial spray to hydrate your skin as well. It’s easy to carry in your purse, handy and refreshing.
If you’ve got puffy eyes, you’re gonna look tired. Put two spoons in the freezer for a few minutes, then use them to depuff your eyes real quick. Other tricks are to splash ice-cold water on your eyes, or to reduce swelling with a washcloth soaked in anti-inflammatory chamomile tea.
The right concealer can do wonders for the dark circles under the eyes. It helps brighten the eye area, giving it luminosity and making you look more awake.
Make your skin look radiant and healthy using a BB cream. This will moisturize, camouflage, and protect you from UV rays, while also giving your skin a smooth and prime aspect.
When concealer and such don’t work, sunglasses save the day. Not only do they cover up any hints of a restless night, but they also protect you against bright light and UV rays. And who wants those?
Wear your hair up, in a ponytail, creating the illusion that your eyes are bright eyed. Pulling your hair up will also create the impression of a little facelift, while also being an easy way to wear second day hair.
Softcolored earrings are a delight: they emphasize your eyes and reflect beautifully into the skin. They also grab attention away from your tired eyes, so it’s a win-win!
