5 mins to 8 hrs Sleep Tricks

In general we advise getting a full eight hours every night, but sometimes life gets in the way.
So feel free to hit that snooze button, because here’s a five-minute beauty routine  to ensure that you look fresh and wide-awake in the am.
Keep your make-up light. A tinted moisturizer, a bit of blush and a swipe of lip balm are plenty.

Don’t bother with the blow-dryer, just pull your hair back into a sleek ponytail. Pulling your hair back lifts up your face and looks put-together in just a few seconds.
Focus on your eyes, because this is where fatigue shows the most. Press a cold spoon or washcloth to wake up your eyes and calm any puffiness.
Apply concealer to cover any dark circles or bags and dab a little on your upper lid to hide any discoloration. Remember to use your ring finger and gently pat  so you don’t pull the delicate skin.

Curl your eyelashes to open them up, and apply a soft champagne or gold eyeshadow from lashes to crease.

Use the same eye shadow or a highlighter to dot a little shimmer on the inner corner of each eye.

If you have a few extra minutes, dust a tiny bit of highlighter along the tops of your cheekbones to make your skin glow.
Then line your eyes with a peach, white or navy liner.  Peach and white open up eyes for that fresh faced look, while navy makes eyes look whiter and awake
