Starts with a fresh face...


YSL Touche Eclat, Anastasia Brow Duo, Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation, Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof, Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow

Monday mornings are notoriously hectic for me. So when I've hit the snooze button a few too many times, I rely on a few trusted products to help me look (and feel) more awake. As the saying goes, "fake it 'til you make it", right?

1. 
Yves Saint Laurent Touch Eclat (available here): A few dabs blended beneath the eyes, on the bridge of the nose, and cheekbones are all that are needed to add brightness to the face.

2.
Anastasia Beverly Hills Brow Duo (available here): The ultimate secret for those not gifted with naturally luscious brows. This fine powder is perfectly natural looking when applied with Anastasia's angled spooley brush.

3. 
Chanel Stylo Yeux Waterproof eyeliner (available here): Long-lasting and perfectly versatile, a thin line works best for day, while a thick one adds more drama for nights out.

4.
Stila Illuminating Powder Foundation (available here): I've been a devoted fan of this for almost decade. This sheer powder complete with SPF literally makes the skin glow and creates a smooth, even look.

5.
Dior 5-Colour Eyeshadow (available here): rich pigment and long-lasting colour make this palette another go-to product. My favourite is "Earth Reflections" which is a great combo of browns and champagnes. I also lightly dab and blend two spots of the champagne colour right at the inner corners of the eye to further to create a more "awake" eye.
