NO SLEEP? NO PROBLEM!

Let's face it, we can't always get a full night sleep. I for one have been so busy lately I feel like sleep is a luxury I can't always afford to have. The problem is, when I don't sleep you can really tell. I get bags and dark circles under my eyes, my skin looks dull and I'm pretty irritable. Luckily I have found a few secret weapons I want to share with you! 1.GLAM GLOW BRIGHT MUD EYE TREATMENT

Most of you know I am a big fan of Shiseido eye masks but I also recently discovered these. What I love about them is that they work in 3 minutes as opposed to 15 with Shiseido. This treatment tightens and brightens the under eye are. (*Note you only need one side for both eyes per use. It will last longer that way)

2.LIGHTS CAMERA LASHES INNER RIM BRIGHTENER 

This magical wand by Tarte is my ultimate secret weapon and lifesaver. It literally opens and brightens your eyes as if you just got back from a week in Cabo. No joke. The only thing I can say is just try it yourself. I cannot wait to hear how much you guys love it!

3. EVE PEARL UNDER EYE CONCEALER

I have tried every concealer on the market. I kid you not. Nothing compares to Eve Pearl. It has two shades, one for color correction and the other to highlight (*on days when I'm REALLY tired, I add my YSL touch éclat or By Terry Touche Veloutee highlight on top as well) but generally this alone does the trick. The added bonus? You know how everyone raves about omega 3's and their importance on beauty, aging etc? This is formulated with salmon oil so it's not only covering its also protecting and preventing aging at the same time! LOVE this stuff!! (note: I use Medium/Light shade)

4. DRINK WATER. LOTS OF IT.

Just do it. Don't think about it. Actually, get up right now and drink a full glass before you finish reading this. Done? ok good. Your skin thanks you. A lack of sleep creates dehydration in your skin and you guessed it, drinking water puts that hydration right back in. Not to mention all the other health benefits. I also recently discovered this awesome tea that gives you energy and tastes great by Yogi called Positive Energy Tea. Annnnnnd yes, it does what it says. You get energy, hydration and yumminess all in one cup!

Do these things when you are looking and feeling a little tired and I promise you, nobody will know you're working off a few hours of sleep!

Do you guys have any tips or secrets you do when you're tired?I love hearing from you guys and getting more ideas!


WE ALL SCREAM FOR EYE CREAMS!

 

My favorite eye creams

So we all know at this point that I am always trying and testing out products. Eye creams are no exception!! I am continuously changing things up because I feel that if you use anything every day, eventually, it stops working. Since the under eye area is so sensitive and delicate, I always want to make sure I am doing my best to protect & prevent puffiness, dark circles and wrinkles.

I tend to get dark circles under my eyes from allergies and lack of sleep. My top 2 eye creams of the moment are Rodial's Dragon's Blood Eye Gel and MD Solar Sciences Daily Eye Repair Emulsion. They are both amazing but very different.

I love to use the The MD Solar Sciences during the day under my makeup. It acts as a great primer for under the eyes. This eye cream has a very thick, almost vaseline or silicone like consistency but absorbs right into the skin and does not leave a greasy residue. Because MD Solar Science has a great amount of antioxidant protection, which helps take down puffiness and helps with dark circles, my under eye area feels like it has a shield that is protecting it from all the crap out there in the world. MD Solar Sciences has amazing ingredients like caffeine, chamomile, seaweed extract, aloe, niacinamide, vitamin C, grape, rosemary, green tea extracts, rose hips and more. It's kind of amazing.

Rodial's Dragon's Blood Eye Gel I love for nighttime. It is very moisturizing, helps plump up the skin and do all of my favorites as well (de-puff, moisturize, prevent wrinkles etc.) This is a gel and has a creamier texture. I love them both and constantly rotate them.

Talk to me in a month from now and I may be on to something else but for the moment these are my absolute favorites!!
