How to look well rested, even when you're not

Getting a goodnight’s sleep is important, but not always possible. Just because you only got a few hours of shuteye doesn’t mean you have to look tired all day.
First wash your face with cold water to help reduce under eye bags. It will also help you feel alert. Be sure to moisturize and using a good eye cream will also help to reduce under eye bags and dark circles. Once the moisturizer has absorbed its make-up time. 
Being tired can make us look ill, pale with sunken eyes. If your in a time crunch or don’t like wearing too much make-up just grab a liquid concealor (your shade or a shade or two lighter then your skin tone) and use it under your eyes, on the tops of your cheekbones, and down the sides of your nose and blend. Blush helps you look healthier and more awake, focus on the apples of your cheeks and remember a little goes a long way. For super quick make up use a lip and cheek tint (like Benefit’s Benetint, posie tint, or cha cha cha). Also using a coloured lip-gloss, lip stain, or coloured lip balm will aide in giving your complexion a healthy glow. (I like Revlon Kissable balm stain in Honey and Charm for a subtle day look)
And lastly your eyes. Curling your lashes makes your eyes look bigger and therefore awake so it’s worth your time. Then finish with a coat of waterproof mascara to hold the curl (also if you take a nap waterproof mascara won’t smudge). To really look well rested grab a highlighter, or light coloured eye shadow and use it on your brow bones and inner eye corner. It will quickly brighten your eyes. 
And to feel more awake caffeine and get moving, do some stretches or simple quick exercises to get your body moving. Put on a fast-paced song to keep yourself awake well getting ready in the morning, it will also help amp you up for the day ahead.
