Wake Up Beautiful

Have you ever spent the night at a guys house and you feel awkward about how you might look when you wake up?  Maybe you are just getting to know each other and you don’t want him to know that you apply 20 minutes worth of makeup each time before you see him? Because for a lot of us we just don’t just wake up looking fabulous. Most of the time your hair looks like you stuck your finger in an electric socket, your mascara is all over your cheek and your foundation managed to get your white pillows a nice shade of beige. Of course when we are in the comfort of our own home, it’s not such a big deal. I mean sometimes you wake up and there are Doritos from last night laying next to you and it’s completely acceptable… maybe it would have been better if they were baked Doritos, but whatever, the point I am trying to make is how do you cheat? Give it a few months then you can let yourself go and let the Doritos come into the bed, but for the first awkward months of “getting to know each other” let’s discuss some secrets on how to wake up beautiful.

First, never go to bed with makeup on. Ladies you should already know this, but for those of you who don’t, IT IS THE WORST IDEA. You usually wake up with massive pimples on your face, your skin is oily, your makeup is all over the place (half the time it ended up on the pillow) and  your eyeliner is so all over the place that it almost looks as if you were mugged the night before. Plain and simple,  you just look like an embarrassing mess. I know you have experienced these types of things.

Second, get your eyelashes tinted. If you take off your makeup before you go to bed and you have tinted eyelashes it still looks as if you are wearing mascara. Tinting your eyelashes is an amazing trick and they last for about 4 weeks. If you are someone who doesn’t walk out of the house without mascara then you need to do this! Also, if you are someone who likes to have their eyebrows in place and in shape, buy a clear brow mascara and apply it lightly to keep those caterpillars in place!

Third, buy a tinted moisurizer. If you are someone who doesn’t feel comfortable not wearing foundation then buy a nice tinted moisturizer. It will keep your skin fresh and also give you a bit of coverage. This is a great trick especially if your skin is uneven. You can also buy a tinted chap stick if you are someone who likes to wear lipstick and want to add some color to your lips.

Fourth, pinch your cheeks, not hard, be nice. It gives the illusion that you have a little bit of blush on. It’s so simple and gives your skin some color.

Fifth, have confidence. No one should fear not having makeup on. We live in a society that puts a lot of pressure on us to look a certain way, and sometimes we let it get the best of us. Have confidence in yourself that you are enough and that you are beautiful.

So to conclude. If you are having your first sleep over at your man’s place and you don’t want him to know your “real” habits quite yet here are your key steps: remember to remove your makeup, tint your eyelashes, invest in tinted moisturizer and colored chap stick, apply a clear eyebrow mascara, pinch your cheeks, and most importantly have confidence.
