While that extra cup of coffee at 8 o’clock last night seemed like a fabulous idea, the caffeine high until 4 in the morning was not.
Attempting to pull an all-nighter to finish that dreaded assignment may also seem like a great call, but the subsequent panda eyes can be frustrating. Or perhaps some suggested to ‘just go for one’ after a long work day and you couldn’t resist.
It happens, and when you have a busy day ahead the last thing you want to worry about is looking less than bright-eyed and bushy-tailed. So, these are some make up tricks to help you fake a fresh-faced look when you’re longing for a nap.
Dust white shimmer shadow across your eyelids and a beige shadow along the crease.
The slightly darker shade makes it seem like your eyes are bigger, so therefore more awake.
Line your upper waterline with black eyeliner.
Applying liner to the water line makes your lashes appear fuller, which is what really gives you the wide awake look.
Coat top lashes with mascara.
Two coats! Also, if you happen to have mascara with a curved wand, that can help you to reach the very corner lashes.
Brush bronzer along your cheekbones and pink powder on the apples of your cheeks.
Give yourself a nice fresh glow; as if you’ve been wide awake strolling in the sunshine for hours and haven’t just pried yourself from the duvet.
Apply a bold lip colour.
If all else fails, draw attention away from your sleepy eyes with a nice strong lip, just go for it.
