How many times have you spent hours awake in the night only to wake up to dark circles and dull skin the next morning? Far too many, we’re sure. Whether it’s a night on the town or a TV show binge in the wee hours of the morning, the consequences of a late night always affect the skin the next morning. Especially if you need to put your best face forward, this can be disastrous. At times like these, you need to rely on a couple of handy makeup tricks to get things right. So if you’re looking to fake a full night’s sleep with a little help from our dear friend, makeup—look no further than these beauty tips.
 

Conceal your sins

Conceal your sins

Forget diamonds because it’s concealer that is a girl’s best friend, especially after a long night. When applied right, it can give you the appearance of a full night’s sleep. To do so, apply the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Concealer Stick in a triangle shape below your eyes and on the inner corner over your tear ducts. Blend it well and see the difference in an instant.

Deflect from the problem

Since eyes are a dead giveaway of a sleepless night, deflect from them with a pair of poppin’ lips. Not only will they take the attention off the eye area, they’ll add a punchy touch to your beauty look. Start by lining the edges of your lips with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Lip Colour in Pink Satin and filling them in with the vibrant colour. It’ll definitely make sure that all eyes are only on your pucker!

 

Open your peepers

Open your peepers

A sure-fire way to make yourself look alive is by opening up your eyes with makeup. Curling the lashes in the centre and ends and finishing them with mascara is a makeup trick that gives the impression of brighter, more open eyes. To try this on a busy morning, use an eyelash curler to give your lashes a pronounced curl and apply the Lakmé Eyeconic Curling Mascara in Black to help them look more voluminous.

 

Disguise your skin

Disguise your skin

While parched, dull skin can be an instant sign of a night spent partying too hard, there’s nothing a touch of blush can’t fix. Swirl your brush in the shades of the Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Shimmer Brick in Pink, dab it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend it outwards towards your temples. This makeup tip is the perfect way to disguise a tired face and give it a rosy, healthy appearance instead.

Brighten your eyes

Another way to treat your tired eyes is with the help of gold eye shadow. Dabbing the light shade over strategic points of your eyelids is an eye makeup hack that reflects light and helps your peepers look brighter. Dab the gold shade from Lakmé Absolute Illuminating Gold Eye Shadow Palette over the centre of your lids and brow bone for radiant eyes that look more awake.
