Holiday stress can really take its toll on us. With countless social commitments and party planning, getting enough sleep is usually the last thing on our to-do list. Try these tricks to look refreshed and energized.
You've heard the importance of hydration before but when you're tired and the air's dry, it can really do a number on your skin. Revitalize your complexion with a moisturizing mask the night before your holiday party to plump up your skin. We love Darphin Hydrating Kiwi Mask because of its delightful scent and since it leaves our moisture-starved skin hydrated and refreshed during winter. You'll be left with a healthy-looking dewy glow.
Need to look rejuvenated fast? Shiseido Instant Treatment Eye Mask consists of super concentrated under-eye treatment sheets that help improve the look of those dreaded dark circles. Leave on for about 15 minutes and then discard before creating that killer smokey eye.
Once you've de-puffed and hydrated your eye area, it's time to add some magic. A little sparkle can go a long way when your goal is to look well-rested. Light-reflecting eyeshadows not only add a holiday-appropriate shine to your makeup look, they can also make you look awake. After using an eyelash curler to really open up your eyes, apply a metallic shadow along the inner rims of the eyes and lower lids (which often look red when you're tired).
After your skin's been pampered, it's time to add a healthy hue to your face so you look energized. The look you should be aiming for is as if you've just pinched your cheeks. Light pink shades look stunning if you have fair skin while plums and corals are gorgeous options if you're dark toned.
