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
Eyeshadow that complements your eye color
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.
