5 Ways to Help You Look Like You Woke up Like This


We all know the importance of a good night’s sleep. But with our busy schedules, sometimes it’s hard to clock in our 8 hours.

Are you sick of waking up looking like death everyday with a pasty morning face, dark eye circles and tangled hair? Here are some ways to have you wake up looking like the goddess you are.

Use a hair oil before bed


The ‘I woke up like this’ look might seem effortless, but its preparation actually starts before bedtime! Prevent the dreaded morning bed head by using hair oil to nourish your locks before bed.

Never remove your makeup again

The best way to look picture perfect when you wake up? Wear your makeup to bed! Now, we don’t mean make up in the traditional sense (because sleeping with makeup is bad for your skin and we’d never recommend it), but we’re talking about semi-permanent make up such as eyebrow and eyeliner embroidery.

Semi-permanent make up will save you so much time in the morning (and money in the long run!) Now there’s no need to worry anymore about getting both sides to match while we’re still sleepy-eyed.

Apply neutral polish to your nails


To achieve nails that scream ‘classy’, ‘put together’ and ‘effortless’ all in one sentence, mid-tone neutrals such as fawn, stone, dusty pink and mauve fit the bill perfectly.

A gel manicure will also help you maintain shiny, chip-free nails for weeks!

Use a hydrating moisturizer


What’s the first thought that comes to your mind when you think of the ‘I woke up like this’ look? It’s likely to be glowy, hydrated skin. And honestly, no amount of makeup, nail polish or hair oil will hide pasty, dehydrated skin, so all our tips would be for naught without a moisturized base!

A product with hyaluronic acid will keep your skin hydrated without it being too heavy.


Trade your foundation for CC cream


CC creams allows for the most natural of finishes, thanks to its lightweight, breathable textures and sheer but buildable coverage. Not to mention, many of them already come with SPF, so that’s one less step in the morning!
