Quick Makeup Pick-Me-Ups

Whether you were out late the night before or you just simply didn't get enough sleep, these 6 makeup products will help to liven up your complexion in no time at all. 

Dewy foundations will instantly give you that boost of your radiance that your skin will need to look fresh and youthful. L'Oreal's Nude Magique Cushion Foundation gives you that natural healthy glow and it feels so weightless on the skin. It offers light coverage however it can be built up to a medium coverage foundation without it feeling heavy on the skin. It's so easy to apply and it also makes touching up on-the-go a breeze!

A quick draw of the Models Prefer Infinite Colour Eye Pencil in Nude Appeal (shimmery champagne) along the waterline will help to brighten up your eyes. The formula is incredibly creamy and glides on effortlessly without it tugging along the eyes. It's also waterproof and smudge proof so it lasts really well throughout the day with minimal touch ups required.

While we're on the topic of eyes, mascara truly transforms your overall eye makeup look by defining and volumizing your lashes, so you look wide awake even though you might not feel wide awake. Ulta's Legendary Lengths mascara gets right at the base of your lash line to separate and lengthen your lashes, and Jet Black really makes blue eyes pop!

I like to use the Wake Me Up Concealer by Rimmel when I haven't gotten much sleep and it shows under my eyes. I absolutely love how well it illuminates my under eye area, it makes you look like you had a good 8 hour sleep and ready to face the day. I then like to follow up with a translucent powder to set it in place to prevent it from creasing during the day.

Honey from the Just Bitten Kissable Balm Stain line by Revlon is one of those universal "your lips but better" shades that looks so flattering, and perfect as an everyday lip colour. It was my go-to for the longest time and it always found its way into my makeup bag! It has amazing staying power, it's moisturising and also stains your lips which is an added bonus. 

Not only does Maybelline's Master Hi-Light Blush in Pink Rose bring life back into your complexion, but it also adds a soft glow to the cheek. I love that it holds 4 different colours to give you a multi-dimensional flush to the cheek, and you could even dip into individual shades for a more precise application. I like to swirl my brush over all the shades as a blush, and then highlight any areas the light would naturally hit my face with the white shimmery shade.

What are your quick makeup pick-me-ups?
