We’ve all been there—tired, pale, puffy and just plain zombie looking after a long night. Whether you’re a new mom like me or a night owl that skips out on precious hours of sleep on the regular, this post is for you!
Below are the products in my current rotation, all keeping me looking alive and awake for the day.
L’Oreal Youth Code Day Cream
This is my base. After a shower or quick face-washing, I slather this all over my face for SPF protection, moisture, and a soft illuminating glow. Plus, it helps get rid of dark spots and acne scars, so I’m all for it!
Origins GinZing Eye Cream
If my eyes are particularly puffy or dark underneath, I add this cream into the mix under my eyes. It has caffeine and brighteners in it to mask all kinds of problems. It’s a miracle product, I swear!
At only $1, this is the best value product out there. The color is perfect for a warm glow that masks that icky pale look you get when you’re super exhausted.
Sonia Kashuk Highlighter Stick
Clearly the secret to looking awake lies in illuminating because this is the third highlighting product in my mix! I swipe this on the top part of my cheek bones after applying bronzer to pick up my face a bit.
Sonia Kashuk Brow Definer & Brow Gel
I’ve found that properly groomed and defined brows make a huge difference. This is a step I never skip because I have rather skimpy eyebrows and just plain look better with them filled in. End of story. If you’re lucky enough to have super thick brows, 1) don’t over pluck them and 2) skip this step.
What products do you rely on to look alive after a long night?
