How to Not Look Like You Pulled an All-Nighter

Whether you're in college or burning the midnight oil at work, pulling an “all-nighter” is inevitable. Busy schedules often mean that a solid eight hours of sleep is not in the cards. We're here to help you look like you didn't hit the snooze button 18 times before running out the door.

1. Pop your moisturizer in the fridge at night

In the morning, wash your face and rinse with cold water, then apply your refrigerated moisturizer. The chill factor will de-puff your face, minimize pores and bring color back to your cheeks. 

2. Eye cream before bed

Grab an instant-gratification eye cream that contains caffeine and light-reflecting particles like MAC Fast Response. It’ll help keep the area taut & smooth for the concealer you’ll need to apply in the morning.

3. Conceal those dark eye rings

When you’re tired, under eye-concealer is definitely your best friend. The thing we want under our eyes is something cakey and obvious. Using a concealer such as Dior SkinFlash Radiance Booster Pen can help to open up your eyes and disguise those signs of lack of sleep.

4. Create the illusion of alertness

Brighten that shady spot at the innermost corners of your eyes with a highlighter such as Marc Jacobs Beauty Glowstick Glistening Illuminator. This will help to reflect the light and make eyes look wide open.

5. Sniff yourself awake

Essential oils are great for perking you up in the morning. Scents like peppermint, orange & eucalyptus are proven to have energizing effects. When you feel more awake, you’ll look more alive too. Try Rescue Energy Spray which restores energy when you are mentally and physically exhausted.
