  1. If your undereyes look tired after a sleepless night then use a concealer to cover your dark circles and underbags. Using a concealer brightens the whole face instantly and makes you look fresh.
  2. wash your face with cold ice water. It increases the blood circulation of your face and makes you look less tired.
  3. Follow a healthy skincare regime. Scrub and exfoliate once a week and remove your makeup before going to bed at night.
  4. Apply a vibrant eyeshadow/ a pop of color on your eyelid or a shimmery shade to focus attention on your eyes. Morphe 350 Natural Glow Eyeshadow Palette34
  5. Applying blush instantly makes the face look younger and youthful.

The best way to avoid looking tired is to get plenty of sleep. However, it is not always possible to get the recommended 8 hours of sleep on a daily basis, especially in today’s super modern and fast lifestyles. When you do not get sufficient rest, it can become apparent and evident on your face. Aside from getting dark circles, you may also end up suffering from puffy and dull skin from your fatigue. If you are interested in not looking as tired as you feel, here is how to use skincare and makeup to look radiant and fresh, even when you are not:

Work on any dark circles

One of the most obvious signs that you are tired is the appearance of swollen eyes and dark circles. If you are dealing with a lot of early mornings and late nights, consider keeping an eye care treatment such as GinZing™ Refreshing Eye Cream to Brighten and Depuff21 on standby to help keep your under eye area from looking swollen and dull. The GinZing eye treatment is formulated with ingredients that are designed to make you look refreshed such as Panax ginseng and magnolia extract that will help to restore balance to your tired eyes.

Apply some concealer

Had a long night out? Stayed up working on deadlines? If you are in a rush and are looking for a quick fix, the right color concealer can help to hide any dark circles under your eyes. When applying the concealer, apply it in the shape of an inverted triangle as it will ensure that you cover any darkness and give the impression of a mini facelift. Use a concealer that has hydrating properties such as NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer19.


Whether you are getting regular amounts of sleep or not, you should never forget to moisturize. Not only will moisturizing help your skin remain healthy and glowing, but it can help you look less tired on those days when you do not get sufficient amounts of sleep. Use a moisturizer such as Drunk Elephant’s Virgin Marula Luxury Facial Oil19 that can be used by all skin types and is the perfect solution for a dull, uneven skin tone.

Use a dark spot solution

A quality dark spot solution such as Kiehl's Clearly Corrective™ Dark Spot Solution18 can help you cover up any visible dark spots as well as help to brighten your skin so that you can look awake and energized.
