Pulling the act together and looking like a million bucks even during bedtime or post that has become a must! Who doesn’t want to look all sassy without having to apply layers but guess what, that’s a tough nut to crack.
Nevertheless, we have decoded the #WokeUpLikeThis look that will let you fake it till you make it!
Step 1: Prep your skin for the look with a CTM regime
Cleanse, tone, (serum before moisturiser, always) and moisturise your skin thoroughly for a fresh appearance to start with.
Step 2: Cover JUST the flaws
For a #WokeUpLikeThis look, you do not need medium to high coverage with a foundation. In fact, just conceal or tint the uneven area or blemishes, if any. Trade your foundation for BB or CC creams and light skin tints when trying to achieve this look.
Step 3: Wake your eyes and curl those lashes.
Because the aim is to look like you literally woke up like this, ditch the eyeliner or kajal. What you can instead do is tight line your upper lid with a black kohl pencil which will make your eyes look bigger and better. You can also curl your lashes for some extra oomph but do not apply heavy layers of mascara as it may defeat the efforts of achieving the bare-look.
Step 4: Colour up your apples
A little, natural colour never hurts, in fact, it invites compliments on the naturally flushed cheeks. Use a light rose or beige tint or creme blush for a light and natural look.
Step 5: Light-highlight
Well, ideally the #WokeUpLikeThis shouldn’t have these many products but we are sure you don’t want to miss the dewy cheekbones and cupids bow as you walk the street of fame. Use a cream based organic highlighter to add that natural shine.
Step 6: Pout the plump
Though you do not need to go for too much colour, some tint for your lips is mandatory. Pucker up your lips with a thin film of creme based lip colour/tinted lip balm. Remember, do not go overboard with the application.
Step 7: Bun Up
No one wakes up with the perfect waves unless you’re Kylie Jenner or Chrissy Tiegen so it’s better to up do your hair in a kinda messy bun for the look.
Go on ladies, let them figure out whether or not you’re wearing any makeup at all.
