Have you ever woken up in the morning, looked in the mirror and thought "Damn, I look tired"?Don't worry, we're right there with you. The last thing we want to do in the a.m. is layer on tons of brightening, illuminating, stimulating products in an effort to wake up our tired faces. But then again, we're not particularly fond of looking haggard and exhausted. Conundrum.
Well, as it turns out, Taylor has some nifty tricks up her sleeve to help you fake a fresh-faced appearance without going through a ton of hassle. Here, she shows us how with a lot less makeup, you can actually fake the effect of a full eight hours of shut-eye. Watch as she leads you from the land of dull and tired to bright-eyed and bushy-tailed in just a few easy steps. Consider it a shot of espresso for your makeup routine.
