Late Nights? How to Look Well-Rested #spon

Disclosure: Thanks to RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5 in 1 Eye Cream I can fake 8 hours of well-rested sleep. This is a sponsored post for Socialstars #WomenWhoRoC, but all opinions, and sleepless nights, are my own.

Whether you have a baby in your 20s, or you are still expanding your family into your 40s, the image of sleepless nights all look the same. Under-eye puffiness, dark circles and looking like you could be an extra on The Walking Dead…

But there is also a big difference in that 20 year gap. In your 40s you’re also dealing with wrinkles and mature skin (dryness and dullness.) So basically, yay me.

Close friends and family know that my sweet baby boy is not much of a sleeper. At 7 months old, he still wakes up a few times a night. Throw in teething, and well… let’s not talk about that.

The bottom line is that I lead an incredibly active lifestyle due to my family of 8. With having such a large family, comes lots of appointments and activities. I’d rather look put-together when out and about than like I could use a nap.

Whether you’re a mom like me and lacking sleep, or you have had one too many late nights, there’s a way to fake looking well-rested. You may be feeling sleep deprived on the inside, but you’ll look like you’ve slept 8 glorious hours on the outside.

So here’s what you’ll need:

Eye cream (RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5 in 1 Eye cream)
Flesh colored eye pencil
Brow highlighter
Brown pen
Eyeshadow that complements your eye color
Eye primer

Step 1: Using your pinky finger, gently pat RoC® MULTI CORREXION® 5 in 1 Eye Cream on the skin under and surrounding your eyes.  RoC®’s 5 in 1 Eye cream improves the look of dark circles, puffiness, dryness, dull tone and wrinkles with breakthrough HEXINOL® technology. With consistent use, you shouldn’t need a concealer.

Step 2: Apply your favorite eye primer to keep your eyeshadow intact without creasing.

Step 3: Using short strokes, apply your favorite brow pen throughout your brow hair, following the natural shape of your brow. Be sure to blend.

Step 4: Along your brow bone under your brow, apply a thin line of brow highlighting pencil, then blend. This will create the illusion of lift to the eye.

Step 5: Using a flesh toned eye pencil, line your waterline. Pat with your pinky finger to blend it. This will conceal the redness and make your eyes look bigger and more wide awake.

Step 6: Apply and blend your favorite eyeshadow that enhances your eye color. I like to use hues of purples and rose for my hazel eyes. This will make your eye color pop and detract from any look of tiredness.

Step 7: With your eyeliner, create a cat eye. This winged style also gives the eye the look of being uplifted and wide eyed.

Step 8: Apply mascara – voluminous or for length, whichever your lashes need most.

That’s my little rascal who only allowed me 4 hours of sleep when this picture was taken. Even if you don’t have kids, these tips can work for you, too.

    That eye cream sounds great to me and while I don’t normally wear makeup I’d like to try it! I tend to sleep about three hours before having to go to work so the bags under my eyes are surreal.

  2. Destany

    Great tips! Sleepless nights are far behind me, thank goodness. My 11-year-old has always been a great sleeper.

  3. Allison

    What a cutie he is! I can’t believe that you’re the mother of 6 children, Shannon. How do you do it all? You’re amazing! Sounds like a wonderful eye cream. I love ROC skincare

  4. Lola Seicento

    Great tips! What a little sweetie pie! This eye cream sounds fantastic!

  5. Cat Ray

    Great tips! I have twin toddlers, so I totally feel you with the lack of sleep/rest! I need to get some eye cream myself!

    I’ve used Roc retinal for years for me acne and I love it, I’ll have to give these other products a go:)

    I’ve actually never used this brand but I definitely want to try it!

    He is adorable!! I know all too well how sleepless nights go, my daughter had her days and nights mixed up until she was 4 months old. I’m due next month with baby #2, and I’m so anxious for those sleepless nights again. It’s so worth it, but so hard. This eye cream would be a life saver for me!

    If anyone needs a great eye cream it’s you and other new mothers. I like your tips and I love how cute your baby boy is.

  10. Kathryne

    Such a cute boy! I need to look rested, I need all the products

  11. Bailey

    First, what a cute! Second, I definitely need to try this eye cream.

  12. Katie

    No matter how much sleep I get I always seem to have bags and dark circles under my eyes. But typically I’m lucky to get 5 hrs and nothing i have tried seems to hide them much. I’m going to have to give this a try and see if I can look “well rested” for once in my life.

    I seem to get the dark area under my eyes no matter how much sleep I get! And your baby is such a cutiepie!
