I 'kinda' Woke Up Like This

We all know that us ladies wake up flawless *insert appropriate emoji here* in fact its an art that's taken us a while to perfect. However for those days when we just don't feel like our inner Yonce is shinning brightly, here's some products and tips that help.
Aaannddddd.... I'm awake.

Pixi H2O Skin tint.
In my opinion one of the best 'I woke up like this', 'barely there' bases around. When I first used this I was shocked at the texture. It is unlike anything else I have used. It's definitely a gel like consistency when it first comes out of the tube, then whilst blending its slightly whipped, a bit like a mousse. It blends beautifully and seamlessly into the skin. The most impressive part about this product is that it really does feel like a drink of water for the skin. The skin tint has a cooling and awakening feel on the skin and I find it is best applied with fingers as you don't need too much. I am very impressed with the coverage of this product. I didn't expect it to be so impressive as I have found most water based products can be hit or miss but this has more coverage than most drugstore BB creams Dr. Jart I'm looking at you. However the Pixi Skin tint is definitely a hit. Perfect for early mornings it's almost fool proof which I love. I was initially worried it would not suit my combination skin, however any doubts were disproved because the finish is semi-matte, leaving a lovely glow but not too oily. This is what I reach for when I'm in a rush and most certainly didn't wake up looking like 'This'. Virtually undetectable and can be our little secret.

Clinique Airbrush Concealer
A holy grail product in my arsenal. This never lets me down. It's easy to use, blends like a dream and reflects light beautifully. I reach for this when I'm in a rush, a few swipes and it looks like I've had a full nights sleep.

Korres Lip Butter
I mention this product far to often but it really is worth it. I tend to dab this on my lips lightly for a subtle stain, it instantly lifts the face and distracts from any tell tell signs of tiredness.

Nothing too heavy but a coat or two of your favourite mascara will make eyes pop and help you look more awake.

What are your tips for mimicking the 'I woke up like this' look?


  1. Thanks for recommending the Pixi face tint, I will look for it when I go down to London. I like to use No7 superlight foundation as it quite thin but blends over everything and can be applied with fingers without using a mirror if need be. Also if I have time (not often) I line my waterline with Benefit's pink pencil.
