Lack of sleep is often dehydrating and can lead to dry, chapped lips. Exfoliate your lips with a muslin cloth or toothbrush, and then re-introduce moisture using a lip balm. If you’re planning to use lipstick, apply lip balm at the start of your makeup routine. This way, it has time soak into the skin and keep your lips flake-free.

Pale and tired skin is a common beauty symptom of not getting enough sleep. But it’s easy to fix! Start with a radiance boosting skin care routine that refreshes your skin. Then use a concealer to play down wrinkles, rosy blusher to add colour and a highlighter on your cheekbones, brow bones and the inner corner of your eyes to add glow. See how in this video.

Red and tired eyes aren’t a pretty sight. But with a little makeup you can camouflage the redness pretty well. Using a white or nude eyeliner for your bottom waterline or using white, blue or grey eyeshadow will make your eyes appear whiter. You can also curl your lashes and use a black mascara to look more awake.
