5 Beauty Tricks for the Morning after an All-Nighter

This article is written by a student writer from the Her Campus at Emerson chapter.

College is a busy time and at some point, you’ll probably have to resort to pulling an all-nighter – whether you are studying for a huge climate change exam or partying the night away. Either way, sleepless nights wreak havoc on your body and it shows. To prevent looking sleep-deprived the next morning, use these quick fixes!

Your skin is probably suffering from hydration and could use a little color. Use highlighter to brighten up your face, contouring under your cheekbones, eyes, mouth and nose. You’ll be glowing in minutes!

Dark circles and under-eye bags are a girls worst nightmare after a sleepless night. Use concealer right under your eyes to make those circles disappear. Skip the black eyeliner and heavy mascara, which might just attract to your bloodshot eyes.

If those stubborn under-eye bags still won’t go away, freeze tea bags or a spoon and put on your eyelids five minutes before leaving your dorm room. It will reduce the swelling and make you look fresh. 

Shimmery eye-shadow or a white eyeliner in the corner of your eyes will keep your eyes looking open and awake. Fill in your brows too to further open up the eye area.

Look alive! Start the day off with a put-together outfit. Plan ahead and pick out what you’re going to wear the night before. Use some plumping lip-balm to make your lips fuller and give your face some color. Don’t forget your shades!
