So, how do you use makeup to give your face that refreshed look? Read on to find out!

Makeup Fix 1: Spray rose water on your face. Always keep a bottle of rose water handy because rose water rejuvenates tired skin. Its fragrance soothes your senses, making you feel refreshed. Let the rose water stay on your face for a while so that it seeps into your pores.

Makeup Fix 2: Next, use a light BB cream to cover dark circles and give your skin a healthy glow. When you haven’t slept well, your face gets a pale, withdrawn look. By applying a thin layer of BB cream, you can hide these signs of sleeplessness and make your face and skin look radiant.

Makeup Fix 3: Red, puffy eyes are the biggest giveaways of late nights. Cover your tracks by lining your eyes with a line of long-lasting, smudge-free eyeliner. Eyeliner defines your eyes, making them look bright and alert. It also hides the puffiness and draws attention away from the redness. However, make sure that your lines are perfect and not shaky or blotchy.

Makeup Fix 4: Another smart makeup tip is to draw attention away from your straggly hair and tired eyes by highlighting a different facial feature, like your lips. Apply on a vibrant, eye-catching shade like hot pink or fiery red to glam up your lips. Besides, bright colours exude a lively appeal that makes you seem energetic and cheerful too.

Makeup Fix 5: The bronze look is a great makeup look to try out on days when you haven’t caught up on enough sleep. This makeup look makes your skin look slightly tanned and what is tanning associated with? Restful days at the beach, right? So, give your face a relaxed, sun-kissed look by taking the bronze makeup route.

With these 5 quick-fixes, you’ll surely be able to put your best face forward and conceal from the world the all-nighters you’ve been pulling. Apart from these makeup tips however, remember to fashion your hair into a neat, slick hairstyle as unkempt hair makes you look sleepy and tired. Slip on your sunnies for extra style and sip on lots of water for extra hydration.

      I like the bronzer idea in particular. One can be tired as all get-out but can at least look good until it's time for a nap.
