4 Makeup Tricks to Look Wide Awake

GOODBYE, TIRED EYES

We’ve all done it… stayed up too late working, studying, or watching our favorite beauty gurus on YouTube. As a result, we end up with tired eyes and lackluster skin. No worries! We’ve got 5 fab makeup tricks to transform your look and fake a fresh face in 20 minutes or less.

CREATE BRIGHT EYES

Sure… the last thing you want to do when running on little sleep is your eye makeup. But nothing covers up tired eyes like good eyeshadow – both matte and shimmer!

The first step to looking more alert is the lids. Choose your favorite matte eyeshadow – preferably a neutral shade like warm brown or white – to blend into your crease and below your brow bone with a fluffy brush. This creates the illusion of larger, wider eyes. Our Studio Pro Ultimate Neutrals palette has a selection of marvelous mattes you’ll love!

Next is one of our favorite makeup tricks ever – it’s quick, easy, and looks great on everyone! Add a small dash of shimmer to the inner corners of your eyes to instantly lift your eyes and look more awake. You can use any kind of sparkle you like – whether it’s a shimmer shade from our Ultimate Neutrals palette, one of our Diamond Dazzlers shades, or our Loose Glitter Collection. Apply with your finger or with our Studio Pro Silicone Paddles to instantly look radiant and refreshed!

CONCEAL WITH THE BEST

If you were up all night, it can be tempting to pile on the concealer to cover up dark circles. However, this can make your under eye area look creased and cakey. Less is more! It just takes a few simple steps to apply concealer like a pro and be sure you slay all day.

Primer is a makeup must-have – especially for keeping concealer in place. Apply our Studio Pro Mattifying Face Primer to lock in your look and get ultra-smooth, radiant coverage that helps conceal tired eyes.

Our Studio Pro Total Coverage Concealer is the best for a flawless complexion, but did you know it also comes in 4 captivating color corrector shades? Find your fave and apply below concealer to effortlessly hide dark circles, discoloration, and more. Blend, blend, blend for a refreshed, radiant look that lasts all day!

MAKE THEM BLUSH

There’s nothing worse for our skin than lack of sleep – which is why you need a healthy glow to light up your look! Add a rosy, nude blush to the apples of your cheeks for a subtle burst of color that distracts from shadows or blemishes.

Go one step further and add a touch of rose gold highlighter! This trendy look instantly adds vibrancy – making you look awake and ready to take on the world. Add to your cheeks, nose, forehead, and other features to become a vision of radiance!

You can find both rose gold highlighter and a soft, rosy blush in our Nude Rose Sculpt and Glow palette – everything you need to brighten your complexion!

STAY SOFT

There’s no better time to utilize the “no makeup” makeup look than when you’re exhausted. Neutral and pastel shades enhance your best features without drawing attention to the dark circles, blemishes, or dark spots that we often get when sleep-deprived. That’s why you can’t go wrong with a nude or pastel lipstick!

Our Nude Lips 28 Color Lipstick Palette is your new best friend – with barely-there beige, rosy pastels, precious pinks and more for your more subtle and stunning lipstick looks. If you’re looking for something a bit more glam, we’ve got your back! Beauty superstar ItsMyRayeRaye created THREE ultra-chic lippies in one ravishing, rosy nude shade – Rosey Raye Lipstick, Lip Gloss, and Liquid Lipstick. Choose your fave for captivating color in one swipe – and a gorgeous look for all occasions!

Top it all off with a soft eye look, courtesy of the Nude Rose Eyeshadow Palette. Whichever one you choose, your rosey will create the perfect finish!

Tickled Pink

Pink hair? Whether you went for a bold or delicate hue, we have what you need to accentuate the look. Embrace your bold side with our Neon Pink Brush Set.

Top off your look with your fave shade of  Color Lock Long Lasting Matte Lipstick in the shade Frisky to make your bold pink lip last all day long (really)!

Playful Pastels

Multicolor pastel hair lets you combine all your favorite tones in one look. What’s better than beachy vivid pastel waves? The answer: Pastel locks with the perfect pastel eye!
