Makeup Tricks You Need to Know to Hide That All-Nighter Look
Every college girl knows that all-nighters are pretty much inevitable. After all, keeping up with a ton of readings, passes to accomplish, and don't even let us get started on late night org meetings and weekend activities never gets easy! While being a hardworking student will always have its perks in the end, one thing's for sure, though—mornings after an all-nighter is never pretty. Luckily, your makeup stash is here to save the day! Just keep these makeup tricks in mind and you can well be on your way to school looking fresh and well rested even after a two-hour sleep.
Brighten and prime!
Try: Step 1 Skin Equalizer in 6 P2450, Make Up For Ever
While you can always skip the primer when you're in a rush, all-nighters tend to make your skin dry and dull, so you will need a primer that will make your makeup stay in put all day and brighten your face in the process, too!
Pump up the eye cream.
Try: Lightful C Vibrancy Eye Cream P1750, MAC
While eye creams are known for taking care of puffy eyes, they're also great in making your concealer application look neater and better, too! Opt for an eye cream that doesn't only treat your puffy eyes, but brightens it at the same time.
Correct before concealing.
Try: Color Correcting Palette, NYX
While some girls go straight to concealing their dark circles and under-eye bags, if you intend to truly conceal your panda eyes, then it's important to use a color correcting concealer first! Opt for a peach or pink color corrector and use your ring finger to apply it. When applying the color corrector, dab it instead of spreading it to really press the product in. Top it off with a setting powder to stop it from creasing throughout the day.
Fake wide awake eyes with a swipe of a mascara.
Try: Mascara Fantasy Lash P599, BYS
It’s no secret that everyone needs at least eight hours of sleep to function properly, but if you didn’t have the luxury of sleeping in the night before, then grab a good tube of mascara to successfully fake a good night's sleep! As Clinique's Regional Makeup Education Manager Rene Benkenstein said, it's important to spend as much time on your lashes as you would with your eye shadow application. The more you take your time on curling your lashes and volumizing them, the more beautiful they will be and more awake you will look!
Add color with a handy lip and cheek tint!
Try: Lip and Cheek Tint P180, Careline
Hiding an all-nighter look means having to hide dull and lifeless skin, too! And nothing spells fresh and vibrant skin more than having color on your face, which a handy lip and cheek tint can do with a breeze.

I've been investing in arts, photography, and writing. I've also got back to reading the other day and I finished reading this amazing book entitled 300 Things I Hope by Iain S. Thomas. It is all about the things the author hopes his readers to do in all aspects of life. So, I decided to make a version of it with all of the things I'm hoping for.
I hope I get to see my friends be successful in life. I hope to make a big mural someday. I hope to be a well-known artist like the artists I look up to. I hope to marry the person I am in love with today. I hope to be a little kinder to myself. I hope to see happiness even in the smallest things. I hope to travel the world. I hope to be a good mother and a wife to my future family. I hope to have my artworks displayed in a gallery or an exhibit. I hope to learn more about creative writing. I hope I won't learn how to get tired and give up my passion. I hope I won't get too hard on myself whenever I don't get the results I've been wanting to see in my works. I hope to love myself more even on the days I hate it the most. I hope to lead and empower women; to be their voice and for them to believe in themselves that they can be the woman they look up to. And when I've reached my limit of these things, I hope I won't get tired of reminding myself that my emotions don't make me weak, hence, makes me stronger. These are some of the things I always hope for. What about you? What are you hoping for?
I started fixing myself this quarantine. I mean, I started trying makeup products. As a teen, I'm on my phone almost every hour of the day, scroll on my social media accounts, especially Instagram, and also Pinterest where you get to see nice and pleasing photography by bunch of amazing and beautiful people from different parts of the world. So I started taking my own as well. I did not know that taking your own photo and try to get an Instagramable one is sooooooooo hard, it's exhausting. I do not have alot of space in my room, and I would definitely not do it outside our house because of Corona Virus, and I don't want to be seen by our neighbors HAHA so I have no choice but to make tiis inside my room.
Out of atleast 25 shots, only 2 are a nice picture. While I'm all sweaty and tired, I am proud of what I could do beyond my comfort zone. And this definitely built my self confidence, (and I secret love the compliments I received from both people I know and don't know) It's not my first time visiting in here, Candy! But I'm new to writing my thoughts and experiences, so bare with me HAHA.
Until next time!
First. Pixie dust and paper cuts – these are the first things Wendy knew about Peter Pan. Aurora first met Prince Philip when she was sixteen. Learning how to ride a bike was also a first while I was growing up, but you are probably the first of too many. The first collection of dust and stars; maybe Luna will try to ask, who was your first? I might answer and tell her that it was you.
The first of too many stars in the sky. You are the first of too many fallen leaves during fall – and you will be the most anticipated snowflake as winter comes. A dark path that you can’t see without any light, hence, you were once the moon and there are the stars that shine so bright at night. Are we too early? Or we just really want to be ahead of time? Even in a glimpse, I would like to see the two of us connect as if we can reach the sky. There are other parts of the heavens you have never saw and other oceans you haven’t laid your feet onto – but the constellations will always wait for you. Close your eyes, love, close your eyes. Start counting backward: 5, 4, 3, 2, 1. Count backward until you see the twinkling lights that will guide you to the right path. To the right satellite; to the right person. A first.
There are many firsts – first love, first heartbreak, first sport you played, the first thing you do in the morning, the first thing you remember about the person in front of you. There are a lot. It’s actually up to us how we will consider something as a first. So, Primo, you are already a first of too many.
