We all have those mornings; we roll out of bed, look in the mirror and immediately think about avoiding the harsh daylight until we've racked up a few more hours of sleep. If only the world would let us crawl back into bed without any judgments about shirking our responsibilities. Since most of us can't afford (literally) to slide back in-between the covers, I've compiled a list of products that can take me from sleep deprived to alive in just a few minutes.
Urban Decay Lipgloss Lovechild | Makeup Forever Smoky Extravagant Mascara | Maybelline Age Rewind Undereye Concealer | Origins Mega Bright eye cream | Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush Exposed | Smashbox Soft Lights Shimmer
First off, I wash my face with the hottest water I can handle, and use an exfoliating scrub. Immediately after, I apply the Mega Bright eye cream under my eyes and down into an inverted triangle onto my cheeks. I apply foundation like normal, then go in with concealer under my eyes. For the under eye area, I like to get one shade lighter than my skin tone. That way, it keeps that area bright. A light, natural flush, blush color is great for waking up your face, and an illuminating powder right on your cheeks provides that glow from within look that can be missing from a sleep deprived face. I finish with a natural pink lipgloss and mascara is a MUST!
