Wash your face 1
I don’t care how fun that party was or how tired you’re feeling, make sure you wash that makeup off before bed, girl! Sleeping in your makeup can lead to breakouts and dark, puffy eyes the morning after. Feeling lazy? Keep a pack of facial wipes nearby. I love Neutrogena Make-up Remover Cleansing Towelettes ($7).
Don't skip out on moisturizer either. Apply something before bed that's going to sooth and smooth overnight. Try Yes to Cucumbers Calming Night Cream ($15).
I recommend applying eye cream before bed, but if your eyes still look puffy by morning, try Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Gel Pads ($30). These things work wonders!
Use tinted moisturizer 5
You want your face to look as natural (but radiant) as possible. Try a light formula that’s going to add glow to your face, like Laura Mercier Illuminating Tinted Moisturizer ($43).
Pop an aspirin 6
Avoid the pounding headache by taking an aspirin as soon as you get up. This also helps remove any redness or puffiness you might have on your face.
Blush on 7
Add some cream blush to the apples of your cheeks, for a fresh, flushed and wide-awake look. I’m really loving Josie Maran Coconut Watercolor Cheek Gelee ($22).
Wear mascara 8
For a fresh wide-awake look, try flaring out lashes with an eyelash curler, followed by two coats of mascara. Look for something that’s most volumizing and lengthening. My go-to is Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23). The name says it all!
Groom those brows 9
Nothing pulls together a look quite like a pair of bold, groomed brows. Keep those arches looking their best by gently filling them in with a natural-looking tinted brow gel. I love Benefit Cosmetics Speed Brow ($18). It works wonders!
