I was recently hit with a horrible cold, cough, fever, and sinus issue and while I was still dealing with the lost voice that you’ll hear during the video, I’m feeling about 90% better. Sometimes when you are sick, though, the show must go on, and I wanted to share a quick demo of how I try to look awake, refreshed, and rested even when I’m not with the help of makeup.
The 3 main areas I focus on are brightness around my eyes, hydration all over my face, and my blush color. If you are interested in watching a full makeup tutorial, click here, otherwise watch the video below to learn my tips for how to look REFRESHED when you are sick.
always forget to drink enough water when I’m under the weather and my skin tells the story! Doubling up on moisturizer or using a hydrating spray will help parched skin! I like using a brightening corrector under my eye ANYWAY to combat dark circles but I make sure not to skip that step especially when I’m sick. I shared two of my favorites in the video but ultimately went with Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector.
Lastly, the pinkest watermelon pink blush I own is what I’ll wear on my cheeks. It infuses a very faux healthy glow onto the main area of my face and helps me feel vibrant and alive!
I linked up all the products that I used below!
Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base – deeply, deeply moisturizing!
MAC Paint Pot in Soft Ochre – my go-to eyeshadow primer
Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector (light to medium) OR Bobbi Brown Corrector (porcelain peach)– both are great for correcting dark purple or blue shadows under your eyes
Tarte Amazonian Clay blush in Blushing Bride – perfectly Barbie pink
Charlotte Tilbury Filmstar Bronze and Glow– definitely a splurge but dang it if it isn’t absolutely beautiful on the skin.
Urban Decay Morning After (sheer)– a long time love!
Becca Skin Love Foundation in Cashmere – this foundation is great for dry skin, it hydrates and looks glowy
Physicians Formula Butter Bronzer – smells like coconut and looks natural on the skin.
Benefit Roller Lash Mascara – my favorite mascara
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Away Concealer in shade 2 – a brightening and hydrating concealer for blemishes or under the eyes
Benefit Nudes eyeshadow palette– a great all-around eyeshadow palette
Benefit Goof Proof Eyebrow Pencil – this looks very close to my natural hair color, and is great for a natural looking eyebrow
Urban Decay 24/7 eyeliner in Demolition– this liner can be smudged at first but then sets in place after about 30 seconds or so
