Been out on a school night? Down a coffee, attempt to fully open your eyes in order to read this, and discover our list of must-have saviours to help you fake those eight hours you should have had.
Help your head kick into gear with these invigorating Molton Brown Brighten and Revive Body Washes.
De-puff those peepers
Put this Aloe Vera Gel by SBC in your fridge the night before your night out, then in the morning smooth over you eye area and lightly tap in. Leave to settle into your skin – while you’re drinking your coffee or brushing your teeth – for soothed (and hopefully de-puffed) eyes.
I woke up like this
Cover any uneven tones and blemishes with Bareminerals Complexion Rescue’s dewy, lightweight coverage. A moisturiser and foundation in one, it hydrates your skin while brightening the look of your complexion for a fresh-faced ‘I was in bed by 10pm’ appearance.
Get a glow
Illuminate cheekbones, brow bones and make your eyes look brighter by dabbing Laura Geller’s Baked Highlighter on the inner corners and lower lash line of your eyes, and voila! An instantly glowing complexion that alludes to ‘beauty sleep and vegetables’ as opposed to ‘late bedtimes and one glass too many’.
Mascara is a must for sleepy-eyed days. Benefit’s Roller Lash is perfect for adding on some extra shut-eye – it helps to curl and lift your lashes for a wide(r)-eyed look.
Finally, lift a slightly pale or pallid complexion by adding colour to your cheeks – Bobbi Brown’s Pot Rouge has a lightweight, creamy consistency with a high pigment – the final touch in fresh-faced beauty!
