3 ways to look great in the morning madness

What a mad rush!
It’s six in the morning, work/school run/general life is only a few hours away and you’ve
still got to find the time to apply your makeup. It’s a panic we’ve
all been in – the cosmetic clock ticking like an episode of
Countdown – but there are plenty of skincare products that can be
applied in almost no time at all.

Admittedly, it
might feel like a lost cause when you first look in the mirror, heck i know it does for me.

At
that time in the morning, every reflective surface feels like an evil
force. My hair is a wiry mess, there’s dry skin all over my lips and my cheeks are as rough as sandpaper… #sadtimes

How can you possibly recover from a
rough night’s sleep?

The answer is
simple – try a few of these tips and you’ll look tip-top in no
time.

Say goodbye to
blackheads (eugh i know.. but it needs addressing)

When you’re a
teenager, you always imagine that blackheads will disappear along
with secondary school and Myspace. But here’s a harsh truth –
blackheads aren’t going anywhere soon.

You might have
eaten a greasy pizza the night before and woken up with a stonking
zit on the end of your nose(delightful), or your spots might sneak up on you and,
before you know it, pollute your face like smog over New York.

But a blackhead
remover is easy
to apply in the morning
, and can be used in the shower. Use it at
least once every day and those nasty blackheads will disappear.

A blushing
look

It’s the
morning, the middle of winter and you’ve barely had time for
breakfast – of course you’re looking a little pale.

To hide that
pallor, invest in a blusher that will fill those cheeks with life.
We’d recommend this Sleek
Cream Blusher
from Superdrug. At only £5.99, it’s a steal –
and it only takes a couple of dabs with a makeup brush.

Brighten those
eyes

Your eyes are
drooping after a rough evening. It looks like you’re transporting
industrial sandbags under your peepers. But that’s nothing that a
little eye brightener won’t fix!

Eye brightener
can be purchased in various colours (although we’re fans of this
magic pink variant from LookFantastic)
and it’ll make your eyes look less tired and aged.

To add a little
more style to your peepers, make sure your lipstick matches your eye
brightener. This’ll accentuate the bright and breezy look you’re
aiming for to combat the morning sump.
