With the help of some makeup tips, you can easily make yourself look like you have completed your beauty sleep.
Listed below are some tips that will help you to achieve a fresh-looking face in no time.
Hydrate your skin
The most important part of any skincare routine is to hydrate your skin. No matter, how oily or dry your skin is, you certainly cannot miss out on putting a hydration mask. And it can be any kind of hydration, from a good moisturizer to an aloe vera gel, you can put on anything that helps your skin and makes it look well hydrated, moist and supple. Just be sure to apply it before putting any layer of makeup on your face. And just to let you know, if you keep your skin deprived of hydration then the skin cells won’t regenerate during the night time which is essential for your skin to look fresh, radiant and glowing. Hence, always feed your skin with hydration.
Use concealer to get rid of dark circles and puffiness
The puffy eyes and dark circles are one sure way of letting anyone deduce that you didn’t had your beauty sleep. And these two together can easily bring your whole look down. But fret not, your makeup and we together have got you covered. With the help of a concealer, yes the magic tool, you can easily conceal those dark circles and puffy eyes in just a few seconds. Use a brightening concealer to cancel out the darkness and you will have your even tone skin in no time.
Ditch the foundation
Applying foundation on an already dull, tired and hydration free skin is going to do no good to your face, which is why it’s better to completely skip this step. However, if you are still unsure of your look due to some blemishes, pigmentation and dark spots, then you can apply the same concealer a second time to conceal the problematic areas. It’s better to let your skin breathe on days especially when you are lacking on sleep.
Apply white or nude pencil in your waterline
With your face already looking so dull and tired, you wouldn’t want to do anything that’s going to add to it. As long as you are going for a white or nude pencil to line your waterline, it’s completely fine. But if you are planning to line it with a black liner then you are committing a mistake. You should be using something that makes your eyes look bigger and awake and not the other way around.
Add a hint of color to your cheeks
For that healthy and glowing skin, blush can be an absolute savior. Instead of keeping the focus on your eyes, try to divert the attention towards your cheeks by making them look flushed and cheery with the help of a blush. A hint of rosy glow on the cheeks will instantly make you look less sleep-deprived and more lively.
