It’s a struggle to wake me up, so I’ve heard from the ones that have tried it. But to make me look awake??? Instantly??? So far 4 cups of espresso and about one and a half hours is the best I can come up with. The one product that makes me look awake is yet to be invented. I hereby challenge every make up brand 😉
Honestly, I am the worst and not proud of it…

Undereye concealer. I need to start experimenting with highlighters. I always try out Benefit’s That Gal brightener but I haven’t decided to buy it yet.

What makes me look awake..? Hummm
A good shower, a splash of fresh water on my face, eye brightener light from Bobbi brown ^^

Revlon Skinlights undereye concealer or a lovely ruby red lipstick – find that really helps to perk me up!

MAC´s Beautypowder in Smooth Harmony (from Heatherette LE) is perfect when I´m in a rush in the morning and look tired and pale. It makes me look rested in about 10 seconds!

Believe it or not, dark eyeliner on lashline and waterline and some mascara and I at least don’t look “tired.” When I don’t wear eyeliner or if I wear a lighter shade, people are telling me all day that I look “tired” even when I’m not. I guess they’re used to me looking a certian way 🙂

Has to be curling my eyelashes (I love the shu curler) and something bright on my lips. MAC’s Dollymix blush also helps.

Select Cover on my dark circles (Origins No Puffery is great for puffy eye mornings), and a little blush. It definitely helps if I curl my lashes, although now they are permed I will just tightline at the base of them and call it a morning.

I wish something made me look more awake…lol

but I put concealer all the way under my eyes (including my lower lash line) and on my lids (including the lash line) b/c I am really purple at my lash bases.

it helps. but not enough. boo.
