How to look more awake in the morning | Ariana's Beauty Corner

Hello my beautiful friends! It's early in the morning and you get wake-up calls for school, work or other daily errands. I guess you're feeling and looking worn-out. Lucky you, today I will suggest you a few easy beauty techniques that can help you pretend you slept 100 hours. By using the right products and following my advice, it's super easy to create a bright and wide awake look very quickly.

The first step is to conceal and brighten your complexion. Everyone's skin reacts differently to lack of sleep, but puffy eyes, dark under eye circles and uneven skin tone are the most common complains of women. If your skin looks dull and splotchy each morning the best thing you could do is to brighten your complexion by gently massaging an illuminating primer into your skinI would recommend you the L'Oreal Paris Magic Lumi Primer which adds a luminous glow in the face and helps you appear healthy in a few seconds. 


Puffy eyes are another common morning problem. A swipe of a rollerball eye cream. like the Garnier Skin Renew Eye Roller, can quickly reduce swelling by increasing blood flow to the under eye area.  Also dark under eye circles are a telltale sign of bad sleep. To erase any signs of under eye discoloration, apply a pink-toned conceal in V shape underneath each eye. You can use the Maybelline Dream Lumi Concealer, which helps to brighten the area and cancel out discoloration. These 3 techniques will literally transform your tired face in a few minutes.

The second step is to focus on your eyes. Red eyes and droopy eyelashes can make you look exhausted and unhealthy, but you can use one or two of these eye makeup techniques every morning to look awake. 
To quickly reduce redness around the eyes apply the Rimmel Scandal Eyes Eyeliner in the shade 'Nude',  above your lower lashes. This waterproof nude eyeliner will stay in your waterline all day long and the light shade will make your eyes pop.


After this, use your finger to quickly add a dab of the L'Oreal shimmery champagne eye shadow next to each tear duct. Doing this, will highlight your eyes and further lighten any redness around the inner eye area.  To create an even more wide-eyed look, curl your lashes with an eyelash curler and add two coats of black mascara. Wait for 3-5 minutes adter the first coat to avoid the spider effect of the lashes.  Curling your eyelashes will make your eyes appear larger and more alert, and the black mascara will help make your eyes appear whiter and brighter.

So this was my advice for a more awake looking. I hope I helped you and I will see you next week!
