Photography by Gionna Tarantola
Working in the city full-time while commuting often puts a strain on my time and how I use it. I recently decided to get back into blogging with the help of my ever-so talented photographer sister. Sadly, it's been hard to coordinate our schedules as I work during the week while she works weekends.
Making time has succumbed to me waking up earlier than usual on a Saturday, in order to get a look in. The first time was rough - especially since I'm a heavy sleeper and tend to look tired for an hour after waking up (not cute). But with the help of some trustee makeup hacks (& sunglasses), I've managed to look somewhat presentable.
Here are some of my beauty hacks:
· Wash your face with cold water - it wakes you up and reduces puffiness
· Add Marc Jacobs' #CoconutGlow highlight to your foundation - it will give your skin life, helping you look more awake! (I recieved this product complimentary from @Influenster & @MarcJacobs & I've used it every day since!)
· DO NOT add mascara to your lower lashes - this brings attention to any puffiness or dark circles you may have
· Add a bright lip & a little blush to give your skin some flush, looking like you have some sort of emotion while feeling like a zombie
