#1 – Apply concealer all over your face and not just underneath your eyes. Doing so will make you appear like you have foundation on everywhere.

#2 – Apply your blush high up on the apples of your cheeks. It livens up your whole face.

#3 – Lip balm isn’t just for your lips. You can apply balm under your eyes to soften fine lines. You can even put some on your cheeks, on your flyaway hairs, and over your eyebrows.

#4 – If you don’t have time for the full smoky eye look, apply a pearly highlighter in center of your upper lids. This will help you look more awake.
