Party season making you feel exhausted? Here are five easy ways to look perky even if you’re feeling pooped.

Curl your eyelashes – your eyes will instantly appear wider and more open.

Liven up your cheeks – cream blush patted into the apples of your cheeks makes you look fresher and perkier in a minute.

Spritz on hydrator – facial misters, especially those containing moisturisers and antioxidants, not only protect your skin, they leave it looking dewy and more youthful.

Reach for concealer – liquid concealer applied around the eyes will prevent you from looking too tired. Just apply to any area that looks red or dull.

Add a little sparkle – a soft shade of shimmer cream applied in the inner corner of the eye makes you look refreshed, even if you aren’t.
