7 Makeup Products to Instantly Make You Look Less Tired
Update your makeup bag with these affordable picks.
Depending on your age, adults need about seven to ten hours of sleep every night, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. However, when you have a job, a family, and life's daily stressors, that's easier said than done. (Especially for those with a late-night Netflix habit.) Unfortunately, that lack of shut-eye not only makes us feel groggy but also makes the majority of us look less than our best. If you're starting to notice your usual glowy skin starting to look a little dull, or maybe your typical bright eyes suddenly have dark circles underneath them, it might be time to revamp your makeup and skincare routine. These affordable products, including a moisturizer, a concealer, mascara, and more, will have you looking ultra refreshed. (Even if you didn't get a good night's rest.) And as a bonus, they're all less than $25.
