Faking a Full Night Sleep

Lately I've had trouble sleeping through the night. I think it's because I've had such a hectic schedule the past month or so, and my body's just gotten in a routine where it can't sleep in. Honestly, it's a pain in the ass. Luckily, through the power of makeup I can fake a full night's sleep. There are a few products I absolutely swear by when it comes to looking refreshed and awake, starting with the incredible Origins VitaZing. This little miracle product manages to even out your skin tone while adding a beautiful, subtle glow as well. Honestly, I find that starting with the VitaZing allows me to use less makeup on top, because it helps so much with smoothing over any uneven spots or dark pigmentation.
On days where I don't want to wear a ton of makeup, the VitaZing is honestly a natural enough base that I sometimes wear it alone and just touch up with concealer. But when I'm trying to look a little less zombie-like, I usually add another base on top. In this case, I've been loving using a combination of my Tarte BB Tinted Moisturizer and Jouer Luminizing Moisture Tint. I've spoken before of my love of adding the Jouer Luminizing Tint with my Clinique CC Cream, and it works just as well added to all of my other bases. It adds a bit of glow and sheen to your face, making for a beautiful highlighter. It helps make tired skin look a little less dull, which instantly brightens up your entire face.
Looking more awake is all about brightening, so I make sure to also use my Clarins Instant Light Brush On Perfector underneath my eyes, over a little bit of my Clarins Instant Concealer. I then add some color to my cheeks with the amazing Tarte Cheek Stain in True Love, and lastly finish off with my eyes Urban Decay Setting Spray and there you have it! It's a natural looking face, but one that helps hide the inevitable lack of sleep that college or stress will do to a person.
