Hello, friends! I hope you’re having a fabulous week. We are almost to the weekend again already. This week has gone by pretty fast for me. We have been planting flowers like crazy, it’s safe to say I’m obsessed and our neighbors probably think I’m crazy. On another note, I have been getting some ridiculously good products lately yall. I’m going to have one UH-mazing May favorites post and video that’s all I have to say. Today I am talking about something I feel like I have to rely on lately being a mom and being super busy all the time. Sleep is nothing like it was pre-baby and I’m afraid it never will be the same again. Luckily I have some tips and awesome products for faking a “great night’s sleep”. Here is: Foolproof Skincare & Makeup to Fake a Full Night’s Sleep.
C L E A N S E
Use an exfoliating scrub or any cleanser with the word brightening in the name. I love the Pixi Glow Mud Mask because it has Glycolic Acid which brightens skin. Actually, a lot of the skincare products I use to fake a full night’s sleep are Pixi products.

Use a toner that is also going to brighten skin, I love the Pixi Glow Tonic. Using a toner like that will remove your dead skin and reveal a fresh bright complexion.

Finally, use an eye cream that is going to brighten and depuff. I honestly have a few favorite eye creams because you could say I am an eye cream hoarder, obsessed, etc. I will recommend a couple for this post though, the LabGrab Eye Renewal because it has super concentrated ingredients capsulated into tiny micro beads that melt into your skin. I also love the Clarins Multi-Active Yeux because it smooths, brightens, and helps fight fine lines. It ALSO has an awesome tip applicator that de-puffs like a dream.
Honestly, when you don’t get a full night’s sleep you probably are too tired to care about putting on makeup, so when I’m in this situation less is more. I use a really good primer, concealer, brow pencil and mascara.

I use the 100% Pure Primer because it illuminates very naturally.

I am newly and completely obsessed with the YSL Beauty Touche Éclat Radiant Touch concealer/highlighter, it makes my skin look super radiant. The formula is lightweight, it covers redness and imperfections, and it blends like a dream.

I think I will always come back to the It Cosmetics Brow Power because it’s a good shade for me and it lasts all day. I really have used a ton of great brow pencils though, I also love the Wander beauty one.
