How to Fake a Full Night's Sleep with Your Beauty Routine How to Fake a Full Night's Sleep with Your Beauty Routine How to Fake a Full Night's Sleep with Your Beauty Routine

So, you were up all night and didn’t get enough sleep last night. Let’s be honest—getting the proper amount of beauty sleep is something that’s hard to fit into your schedule these days. Between work, running errands, going to the gym (or attempting to), and maintaining a social life, getting in your 8 hours may not be at the top of your list. Luckily, we have a few skin care and makeup tricks—from facial moisturizer to highlighters—that will allow you to fake it ‘til you make it (into bed at a normal hour) with your beauty routine.  Read on to find out how to look well rested—even when you aren’t.


When you’ve actually gotten a full night’s rest, your skin glows just a little brighter than usual. To mimic that well-rested radiance, you’ll want to use a peel pad formulated with glycolic acid. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Bright Reveal Brightening Daily Peel Pads will not only leave your skin looking brighter and smoother, but it will also reduce the appearance of wrinkles overtime.


Once your skin is clean, you want to keep it looking dewy. You can do this by using a facial moisturizer to keep your skin hydrated. Using a moisturizer with a slight pink tone will add a youthful rosy tone to your skin while allowing it to look rejuvenated. If you have mature skin, try the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Moisturizer.


One of the first giveaways of lack of sleep is having bags and dark circles under your eyes. This can be prevented by using an eye cream. The L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Eye will reduce signs of fatigue around the eyes such as dark circles and puffiness to leave you with a younger, radiant finish.


If you want your skin to look youthful and awake, adding a face mask to your skin care routine is a great way to do that. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask, which contains 3 pure clays and red algae, helps to exfoliate and refine your skin in a matter of minutes. This face mask can be used up to 3 times a week to leave you with smooth, glowing skin.


After you’ve tackled a skin care routine fit for the sleep-deprived, it’s time to grab your makeup products. The #1 thing you’ll be targeting is dark circles under eyes. To start, use a color correcting concealer to neutralize your dark circles and any discoloration you may have. The L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Color Correcting Crayon in Bisque, Orange, and Peach can be used for dark circles on light to medium, deep, and fair to light skin tones respectively. Once any darkness is neutralized, reach for a concealer a few shades lighter than your skin tone and apply it in an upside-down triangle beneath your eyes to leave them looking more awake. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Super-Blendable Multi-Use Concealer, which has a high coverage, super blendable formula.


As we mentioned earlier, glowing, bright skin is one of the key traits of skin that has gotten enough beauty sleep. Give yourself a radiant glow by applying a highlighter, like the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Glow Amour Glow Boosting Drops in Golden Hour, that will leave your skin with a warm, sun-kissed glow.


So long, tired eyes! To make your eyes look awake and well-rested, apply a nude or white eyeliner to your waterline. Use the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Last Waterproof Pencil Eyeliner in Nude for creamy liner that will last and last—even when worn on your waterline—thanks to its waterproof formula.
