Jet lag, late night out, sick child, stress or insomnia. There are some nights where you eventually realise that a good nights rest is out of the question.
It happens to the best of us & that’s okay, unless of course you need to be up for a big presentation for one of your classes or a really important meeting or if you’re expecting company. If that’s the case then those puffy eyes, dark circles and that dreaded dull skin skin is a DEFINITE NO. Here are a few tricks into brighten up your look and feeling more confident to face your day:
It’s time to cover up those dark circles. The antidote to this dilemma is to start with a colour correcting concealer (pale pink for fair toned skin, dark pink for medium toned skin, orange for dark toned skin). Apply in the shape of a triangle, this shape will lift up your face. You then take your usual concealer (usually two tones lighter than your foundation shade) and gently dab it on top of the colour correcting concealer.
One thing you need to stay away from is a heavy foundation. Your skin is tired, chances are if you apply heavy foundation it’s going to react negatively, maybe even give you a patchy finish. Stick to your light weight foundation or better yet, BB cream for an even tone.
I feel like the most confident woman in the room when my brows are done. Create a slight arch. When your brows are arched, your eyes look lifted – gentle strokes should work to create this feature. Just remember not to over fill your brows, we don’t want them looking like caterpillars.
Time for my favorite part, mascara. Apply mascara to both your top and bottom lashes. I’m always amazed at how my eyes pop open after applying mascara. You’re basically faking the bright eyed and bushy tailed look!
The colour of your lipstick is completely up to you. Some prefer a bright colour to take all attention away from their eyes. I on the other hand prefer a neutral lipshade with a hint of a brown or pink undertone.
I hope these tips & tricks help!
All the love,
