Hydration is the key
The way your skin looks can easily tell if you have got plenty of sleep or not. But if you don’t want your skin to reveal this secret to anyone, then it’s important to be extra attentive towards its needs such as hydration. Lack of sleep can lead to a lack of hydration in the skin; the only way to compensate for lost hydration is by giving your skin an extra dose of moisture by applying a hydrating moisturizer.
Conceal dark circles and puffiness
Waking up to puffy eyes and dark circles also suggests that you haven’t had a good night’s sleep last night, these signs can easily tell that you are sleep deprived. If you don’t want these imperfections to come in your way of flaunting flawless makeup application, then you should consider concealing them with the help of a concealer. Pick a brightening concealer and apply it under your eyes. It will help conceal your dark circles and puffiness while making your skin look even-toned.
Ditch the foundation
Sleep-deprived and dehydrated skin tends to look pretty parched, and wearing foundation on parched skin won’t do you and your skin any favor. Therefore, it’s best to ditch the foundation and use a concealer instead to conceal all the problem areas on your skin, including blemishes and pigmentation. You should allow your skin to breathe properly when you are sleep deprived.
Skip the kohl
While kohl definitely helps make your eyes look more stunning and defined, it’s better to skip it on days when you are sleep-deprived or your skin looks tired. Instead of using kohl, you should use a white or nude eye pencil for your waterline. This will not only help make your eyes look a lot bigger but wide awake as well. Additionally, using a nude or white eye pencil will help cancel out all the signs of sleep-deprivation.
Add a pop of color to your cheeks

Instead of adding color to your lids, you should add it to your cheeks to make yourself appear as fresh as a daisy.
