Shalini’s tips for an effortless morning look include:

  1. Use a Korean facial tapping exercise: to boost circulation and wake up your skin begin tapping your face with your fingers, which Shalini says will give you “an amazing glow.”
  2. Condense your makeup products: Try using a product like Sleep in Beauty BB Cream, which is a skin-calming tinted makeup you can sleep in, which has anti-wrinkle and anti-blemish properties.
  3. Use blue for your eyes: According to Shalini, the color is best for creating the illusion of a restful night and the quickest way to brighten the whites of the eyes. Blue eye shadow and mascara is good for all skin tones and all hair colors.
  4. Use a lip color that can also go on your cheeks: Blend the color into your cheeks for an instant a gorgeous flush look.
