That time of year has swung around again. Kids are back in school and early mornings call our name. Throwing our hair up in a bun and coffee is our usual go-to, but even with that we still struggle to feel alert and fully awakened, let alone look awake. Here are some quick tips for all you early birds to give yourself a more awakened look even when you don't feel the part yet. 😅
Reduce those dark circles and puffiness around the eyes with a quick eye mask. An eye mask will de-puff the eyes and hydrate them for a wide awake look. Wear them around while getting ready and discard when done. All it takes is a quick 15 minutes to change your appearance from snoozin' Suzie to wide awake Wendy.
Believe it or not but keeping those lips hydrated and moist will give your face a boost in looking awake. This is a quick and easy fix that takes little to no effort and benefits you by keeping your lips hydrated to avoid dry and cracked lips.
Curl, curl, curl those lashes! We know that the eyelash curler can look scary at first sight but it can become your best friend. When you just want to jump out of bed and go make-up free on those early mornings, an eyelash curler will help to curl those eyelashes to widen and open up your eyes for a bright-eyed, awakened look. You know what they say, the eyes are the windows to the soul. 👀💜
Give yourself a quick morning picker upper or mid-day picker upper with a hydrating face mist. This will awaken your senses and refresh the skin to give it a natural glow. Not only will you feel more awake but your skin will look amazing!
It's as easy as 1-2-3. Apply highlighter in the corner of your inner eyes. This is a tip we have all used at some point or another or even daily! Doing this counteracts the deep shadows and reflects the light to make your eyes appear wider and brighter.
Hope these tips help you look more awake on those groggy mornings! 💙
