We all have those days. The one where you wake up with a drool stuck to your face, panicking because your alarm didn't go off. Maybe you've been woken up by a rowdy pet or neighbor, or maybe just by nature itself. Maybe you forgot to set your alarm last night, or maybe it just broke. But whatever the case, you've slept in, and you look like you've just fallen headfirst into the dump truck.
Or maybe your alarm has just waken you up. It's morning already, but it feels like you've only had two hours of sleep. Probably because you have. Maybe you went out last night and stayed out way past the time you had intended. Maybe you had a ton of work/homework to do that kept you up past dawn. Or maybe yesterday was rough for you, and you stayed up late watching Netflix and eating chocolate. Whatever that case, you look and feel like a raccoon that got left on the side of the road.
You stumble into the bathroom and look at yourself in the mirror. You've got some serious work to do to look like a normal human being again. Or maybe not! Here are some of my favourite ways to look refreshed.
1. White or cream eyeshadow
A little dab of this in the inside corner or your eyes will instantly brighten your face. Just make sure to blend it!
2. Drink water
This will not only make you look more refreshed, it will make you feel more refreshed. Add lemon for an extra pop! It will also help clear your skin.
3. Light colours
This especially goes for eyeshadow. A nice, light shadow is best for those mornings that you wake up exhausted, as it won't emphasize any dark circles.
Everyone knows this, but it doesn't make it any less true! A swirl of pinky blush on your cheeks will instantly brighten your face.
5. Go easy on the eyeliner
Yes, you can do a killer cat eye. But maybe it's not the best fit today?
Just a few coats of a good mascara will make your eyes look much more open.
6. Put your hair up
Nothing makes you look more tired then a clump of hair hanging in your face. Use the day to try that cute new updo!
Before your try any of these, I just want to say that what works for me might not work for you.
What does work for you? Please let me know ♥
