10 Beauty Fixes For Insomnia Face•
Posted on September 11 2019
After another sleepless night battling night sweats and insomnia, the last thing you want to hear the next day is “you look tired”. The solution? Fake it. With these 10 beauty products, no matter how much you’re struggling on the inside, you can count on your face not to give it away.
ELEMIS PRO-COLLAGEN HYDRA-GEL EYE MASKS, £50.50
Woken up with tired, puffy eyes and need a quick fix? These moisturising Elemis masks, with plankton extract and chlorella working to tighten the skin, will have you looking fresher in minutes.
For ultimate multitasking, put one on while you make your morning coffee.
DRUNK ELEPHANT PROTINI POLYPEPTIDE CREAM, £57
New brand Drunk Elephant is worthy of all the hype.
Full of collagen-boosting ingredients like amino acids and protein peptides, this day cream quickly plumps up hollowed-looking skin and and leaves you looking fresh all day.
ESTÉE LAUDER THE ILLUMINATOR, £27
Estée Lauder does primers really well, and this one will give you dewy skin while keeping your makeup firmly in place.
It works really well on its own too, for a natural-looking healthy glow.
NARS PURE RADIANT TINTED MOISTURIZER, £30
Less is more.
Heavy foundation could make you look dry and even more exhausted, but this NARS tinted moisturiser is a winning combination of natural coverage and hydration benefits. Think your skin, but better.
BECCA UNDER EYE BRIGHTENER CORRECTOR, £21
This is like 8 hours of sleep in a pot.
Aussie brand BECCA is all about glowing skin, and a swipe under each eye will instantly brighten the area while reducing the appearance of dark circles.
LANCÔME HYPNOSE WATERPROOF MASCARA, £25
The quickest trick to looking wide awake is a good mascara. Lancôme’s iconic Hypnose creates the illusion of being naturally blessed with your lashes without looking overdone.
Choose the waterproof formula if you’re conscious of streaming eyes.
LAURA MERCIER CRÈME CHEEK COLOUR, £23
If you’re experiencing redness and hot flushes throughout the day you can skip this step, but otherwise a cream blusher is easy to apply after a sleepless night and will warm up your face without drying it out.
This one by Laura Mercier is buildable and easy to blend.
CHANEL SHEER ILLUMINATING FLUID, £32
A good highlighter can give the illusion of younger skin and the Chanel Sheer Illuminating Fluid offers a subtle sun-kissed effect, with no unwanted glitter or sparkles.
Apply it where the light naturally hits to wake up your face and define your features.
MARIO BADESCU FACIAL SPRAY WITH ALOE HERBS AND ROSEWATER, £7
Drinking lots of water during the day will keep you looking and feeling more awake, but for an extra dose of hydration always have a face mist handy.
This will be a life saver in moments when you need to cool down quickly.
HOURGLASS AMBIENT LIGHTING POWDER, £42
If you really need to look the part, this Hourglass finishing powder is like a photo filter for your skin.
It’s designed to give the same look you’d achieve in very flattering restaurant lighting. We’ll take two.
