It’s a ‘blah’ kind of day

I woke up this morning feeling a little ‘blah’. Well, a lot blah really – and unfortunately, my face decided that instead of working its hardest to fight against it, it was just going to pack it in and let all traces of tiredness shine right on through.

I was up against the following: dark ringed, puffy and blood-shot eyes; blotchy, dull and flaky skin; chapped lips, and to top it all off, majorly sore neck and shoulder muscles. It’s a wonder I made it out of the house and in to work at all in that state!

So now that I’m at work, I’ve decided that the only way to through the morning (the entire day is a whole other challenge) is to arm myself with some fast-working, quick-fixing beauty solutions. Here’s what I’ve come up with:

To combat my poor puffy peepers: A’Kin White Tea & Cornflower, Soothing & Relaxing Eye Day Gel, followed by Estée Lauder Ideal Light Brush-On Illuminator.

To combat my lackluster complexion: Juice Organics Brightening Moisturiser, followed by Clinique Up-Lighting Liquid Illuminator.

To combat my dry lips: Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup Sugar and Butter Lip Duo.

To combat my aching muscles: GOANNA Heat Cream.

Do you ever have days where you just feel really ‘blah’? What are your quick pick-me-ups?
