We are just 74 days away from 2017! Can you believe it?
Everyone I’ve been chatting to is tired and yet this time of year is only going to get busier.
‘Fake it ’til you make it’ they say. If we need to look bright eyed and fresh, (with little sleep after the looming Christmas parties), then we’re going to need reinforcements.
By reinforcements, I mean cosmetics.
I’m going to share my little tips on how I achieve the bright and fresh look:
- Concealer – one shade lighter than your foundation.
- A nude pencil – if you have white, it’s fine, but nude is better as it’s more natural looking.
I like to apply my eyeshadow and top liner first, so that I can wipe any fallout away. Then I apply my foundation and do my brows.
Now for the brightening tips. I apply concealer after my foundation… In a triangle to brighten the area. I then blend that by patting it in rather than wiping away.
This step really makes you look like a Disney princess. Rim your lower waterline with a nude pencil. This trick alone makes you look more awake and also makes your eyes look bigger.
I then apply highlighter in the inner corners of my eyes (the tear ducts) – it instantly makes your eyes look brighter and fresher. Any leftover on your finger, dust it over your cupids bow 😉
Ideally, we should be getting 8 hours of sleep, but when it’s just not possible, these little tricks will you make you look bright and fresh.
