Let's be honest - working the nine to five grind (or however long it actually is) doesn't do wonders for your physical appearance. You're tired, groggy and at best, put-together, but fortunately, there are some makeup products that are better than others when it comes to helping you maintain the same fresh-faced appearance you came in with.
The most critical step involves moisturizer. No matter how much face makeup you actually wear, moisturizer helps revive tired-looking skin and is a great base for the rest of your cosmetics. If you don't need a whole lot of coverage, consider using tinted moisturizer as an alternative to heavy foundation that can often weigh down your complexion.
Blush deserves mention, as it is an instant pick-me-up. Choose rosy or peachy tones that resemble your natural skin color. Applying blush to your cheekbones gives you a more youthful look than blush applied to the apples of your cheeks.
Lastly, and most critically, select a high-performance mascara that won't flake or smudge throughout the day. In this category, blinc Mascara deserves top mention - its water-resistant, long-lasting formula is patented to stay on lashes more faithfully than most leading waterproof brands, and without any of the harsh side effects.
