I'm slowly powering through my last week of school. Lack of sleep is getting the better of me, though, and I've been choosing to spend that extra 15 minutes in bed in the morning rather than prepping and preening myself for the day ahead! I need quick fixes that will wake me up and provide that healthy glow.
It's all in the name, really - Rimmel's Wake Me Up concealer (£5.49) was built for school. A dab under each eye, blended out with your ring fingers, adds an extra hour or two of sleep in terms of appearance. It's got a very liquid-y consistency and is natural looking so it's hard to make it look cakey, too. I have the shades True Ivory and Ivory Beige, neither of which are particularly pale, so give te shades a swatch before buying as unfortunately the line only caters to light/medium to tanned skintones.
We all know the wonders of a swipe of nude liner in the waterline, and the Rimmel ScandalEyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal in Nude (£3.99) does the trick. I'm a regular contact lens wearer so I don't use this every day, but it does noticeably brighten up the eyes.
If all else fails, add a tonne of highlighter and just roll with it. I love The Balm's Mary Lou-Manizer (£16) because it's incredibly finely milled with no glitter in sight. I use a duo fibre brush to dust a sheer sprinkling of glow onto my cheekbones and bam, my skin is suddenly the skin of a girl who's just had a facial and 10 hours of sleep. It's like magic! Either that or a dab of Topshop Glow in Gleam (£9) does the trick.
