On mornings when you feel like you're looking less refreshed than usual, try these impressive tricks to appear less puyat and haggard:

1. Spray on an energizing facial mist.

Wake up your skin with a toning mist charged with nourishing fruit and plant extracts.

2. Use a color-correcting base.

A primer that can cancel out redness (green), grayness, and dullness (lavender) can turn your complexion to a healthy-looking one.

9. Carefully set your whole face with powder.

When putting on face powder, concentrate on your T-zone, as a super matte face tends too look flat. Letting your real skin show can project a fresher face.
