I’m getting very little sleep at the moment. If an army soldier with SAS training spent a week in my shoes they would crumble and cry like a baby. Taking sleep from a human has lots of disastrous consequences, not least to the eye area. Every morning I look in the mirror and Gollum is there looking back.
I might accidentally put the post in the toaster or leave my keys in the front door but I don’t want to look like death itself, here’s a plan of attack-
This morning after about 3 hours sleep I decided todays post would be all about how one can disguise themselves as a well rested person. It’s all in the eyes. I’ve read a lot about tricks you can use- haemorrhoid cream, cold spoons, cucumber slices, avoid alcohol, caffeine and salt (No thanks), but this is what I do.
After cleansing I apply moisturiser and really massage into the eye area, pushing up towards the nose
Today I used Charlotte Tilbury Wonderglow on top of my foundation to brighten things up. Then Urban Decay Eyeshadow Primer Potion as a base for my upper lids and as a under eye concealer. Extending the concealer further down and across gives a better result
Blend! I found it best to use my finger. Then I used a highlighter (MAC soft and gentle) along the cheek and up to the brow.
Next the eye, my goal today is to make my eyes look giant (like an awake person) so no dark colour next to my eye today. I used Benefit It Crayon(it’s like a concealer pencil)
within my lower water line and liquid liner above my upper lashes
I applied a light coloured, reflective eyeshadow and heaped on the Mascara onto all the lashes I could find. Blusher will make a huge difference too so get plenty of that on there.
And of course do your brows, that goes without saying. Then job’s done. Just putting on a bit of slap can lift the spirits at the end of a long night, I really went to town with it today and I feel a lot more human for it. Xx
