4 Beauty Products I Use To Make Me Look Well Rested

Happy Monday beauties! Today I am talking about the 4 products that I use to help this mama look less tired. I figured no day more perfect than a Monday to talk about this topic, haha!

If you are a mama, workaholic, late night studying student, this post is for you!

tips-to-looking-well-rested

I love makeup. That’s no secret but the perfect lip color isn’t going to hide these tired eyes! I can’t tell you how many times I have gotten less than 4 hours of sleep and then someone compliment me on my makeup the next day. Before these 4 magic products I would have probably gotten a “are you not feeling well today?”. Why do people think it’s okay to ask that? It’s like just say I look like crap because I know that’s what you really mean 🙂

Anywho, no one is going to be asking you that once you begin working these products into your regimen!

1- Dr. Brandt No More Baggage – I first heard of Dr. Brandt after seeing everyone post about the magnetic mask. The Dr. Brandt No More Baggage Gel immediately reduces the appearance of bags and puffiness because its enriched with antioxidant botanical extracts and caffeine. It is also said to help with dark circles but honestly I don’t see it as a solution for dark circles which is why I use product number 2. I apply the no more baggage gel after my morning skincare routine and before I apply any of my makeup. Let it dry completely before you apply makeup.

2- Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector – This full coverage corrector hides dark circles by brightening and evening out skin tones. It’s infused with ultra, fine light and reflecting illuminators and is water resistant. I apply this after my no more baggage gel and before my It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye.

3- It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye – You are probably thinking, “geez, this is a lot of eye coverage” but talk to me when you look rested after 3 hours of sleep” LOL. The Bye Bye Under Eye is my ride or die. This product along with the Becca brightening corrector and Dr.Brandt no more baggage gel are amazing but if I had to give up all my makeup and choose one, it would seriously be this. It’s also perfect if you really don’t have time for all 3 steps or if you don’t really have a problem with under eye bags, you could definitely just do this product!

“Developed with plastic surgeons, Bye Bye Under Eye is infused with anti-aging ingredients including hydrolyzed collagen, peptides, vitamins, hyaluronic acid and antioxidants to cover absolutely everything while making your skin look younger at the same time.” It’s basically a no brainer. I wear the medium shade for reference.

4 – Becca Highlighter – This highlighting magic lasts forever because all you need is a little tap onto your brush and it will give you that perfect glow. I tap a little onto my cheekbones and nose. The subtle shimmer makes your skin look so fresh and sunkissed which in return makes you look rested and awake even though your body is like “gimme all the coffee.”

Gift with purchase is happening with most of these items at Ulta right now so if you are thinking about trying any of them, this would be a good time to grab them. One of the many reasons I love shopping at Ulta is that if you are not completely satisfied with a product for any reason you can return the product for a full refund or exchange. This makes it stress free for me to shop beauty products online because I know if the shade doesn’t work for me I can switch it out without a problem.

Also, I know I am going to get questions about these faux marble brushes because they are so cute! I actually snagged them from Amazon here and I was so surprised with the quality for the price. I definitely recommend them. It’s a 10 piece brush set and it’s available on Amazon Prime.

Have you guys tried any of these products? What are some of your favorite tricks to make you look more rested? I wanna hear!

My Top 5 Favorite Skincare Masks

best-skincare-masks

Tony Moly Intensive Hydrating Mask – You can guarantee that I have this mask in my suitcase when I travel. I always feel so dehydrated after a flight and this mask brings my skin life again! I also really like it after being in the sun for long periods of time. I typically wear this hyaluronic acid mask before bed for about 20-30 minutes. When I remove the mask I rub the excess moisture from the mask onto my hands and elbows. Ulta is currently having a BOGO sale so you can buy one for $4 and get a second one for $2. I’ll definitely be stocking up!

Patchology Illuminate Mask – Calling all my mama friends! When you have gotten basically no sleep and you need to look like you got all the sleep, this 5 minute mask is for you. It contains vitamin C, licorice and grapefruit seed extracts to even skin tone and show off a healthy glow! I like to use this in the morning before my makeup routine and then voila! It looks like this mama got 8 hours of sleep! Also, Ulta has this exclusive at home pampering kit. I have tried all of the products in the kit and love them.

Mary Kay Charcoal Mask– I am in love with this deep cleansing mask! “The mask is formulated with activated charcoal, an ingredient so powerful, it can bind up to double its weight in pore-clogging impurities.” Confession: sometimes I fall asleep with my makeup on (eewww, I know!) but when I do I always use this as soon as I wake up in the morning.  This deep cleansing charcoal mask works by withdrawing dirt and debris from deep within pores.

Aloe Vera Hand Mask – I am so sad that this hand mask is currently sold out online but if you suffer from dry skin like I do, then run don’t walk to your nearest Sephora store! Last year I shared a funny post about my search for the perfect hand cream. You can read that here. My skin is so crazy dry that I have to ensure that I moisturize consistently during the day. This mask helps so much! Now that I use the L’Occitane hand cream I only use this hand mask about once a month and now it’s a debate on who has softer hands, me or baby Weaver 🙂 The aloe vera hand mask is great for intense moisturizing but Sephora has other hand masks as well.

Pure Clay Mask – This mask is great for unclogging and tightening pores. The red algae extract helps refine pores. This clay mask works amazing at exfoliating the dry dead skin. My face feels so fresh, clean, and rejuvenated after just one use. I use this at least once a week. Put it on for about 10-15 minutes and wash off with a warm towel. Also, I love that you can just grab this on your grocery store trip.

I like trying new masks all the time but for the past year these have been my ride or die’s and I consistently keep going back to these!

Let me know which ones are your favorite! I love trying new ones.
