Make-up-tips to conceal tiredness
Returning from holidays picking up daily routine, again, with its time changes, daily stress and anxiety,… play hard with our face. Our face is the mirror of our soul – and a stressed and tired soul will show: bags and rings under the eyes, dull skin,… definitely a sad face.
Although the best medicine is to relax, sleep at least 8 hours, eat healthy food, and take life a bit easier whenever possible, we leave you with some good advice on how to camouflage tiredness with these make-up tricks:
No beauty without cleansing. That’s the way it is. As you cleanse and purify your face (soap & skin toner), apart from a pleasant sensation of well-being, you will notice your skin resurrect and recover its natural glow. This is fundamental for a healthy look.
Use a good concealer to hide rings under your eyes which might reveal lack of sleep. But remember not to go over the top in using too light tones to avoid highlighting them, instead. Leave the light to the illuminator, which, as you know, is to be applied to the area just above your cheek-bones, the folds around your nose, and the vertex of your eyes to make you look good.
Apply a foundation that balances out skin’s tones and hides possible imperfections. You might want to try the classic Anti-Blemish Solutions by Clinique. If you tend to a glossy aspect, you might want to opt for a fluid foundation with a matte finish as could be Ideal Matte fluid by Estée Lauder. Should you, on the other hand, prefer a base that contributes to a luminous face, you might want to choose Vitalumière de Chanel.
Give life to your cheeks with a touch of blush or colorete to achieve a healthy look. Choose pink, coral or salmon colours to compensate pale skin. By applying some lipstick or gloss (whichever you prefer) you will not only achieve a healthy look, but also and above all shift the focus from your eyes and so avoid tiredness do be on display.
Another tip: do not overload your face with make-up. It will only draw attention to what you would like to hide. Try to keep it natural. Follow our 4 basic steps to eliminate fatigue and conquer the day by showing a good face.
