We've all been there. That post-work happy hour turns into an all-night affair, and you're dragging your sweet tush home mere hours before your alarm goes off. No judgment here. But, you can't exactly show up to the office looking like an extra from Zombieland. Luckily, The Cut has a trick to looking more awake, courtesy of makeup artist Wayne Goss — and it only takes one step.
Goss is the unofficial king of YouTube makeup tutorials, and he's definitely someone you want to listen to when it comes to makeup secrets. His "Fake Yourself Awake" video is the first in a series of tutorials on which he's collaborating with The Cut. His secret? Don't rely solely on your concealer — make your highlighter work for you, too. Now that you know, you'll still want to double-down on the coffee; just because you look awake doesn't mean you actually are. Click through to see the full video. (The Cut)
