3 Beauty Essentials That Help Me Look and Feel Awake


aimee_song_of_style_nars_orgasm_estee_lauder_little_black_primer_self_portrait_lace_topI feel like I’m always lacking on sleep (I can’t remember the last time I had my 8 hours of beauty sleep) so I’m going to share with you three beauty products that help me feel and look wide awake. aimee_song_of_style_self_portrait_crochet_lace_top_vince_leather_skirtLet’s say you have your base makeup done. For me that’s just filling in my eyebrows, applying sunscreen and maybe putting on eyeliner which takes about 10 minutes every morning (8 minutes goes to trying to make my brows even.) Since I’m always lacking sleep, to look awake, I curl my lashes and apply mascara which helps open up my eyes. Right now, I’m loving the Estee Lauder Little Black Primer (available at Lord & Taylor) which is a primer you put on before applying another thick layer or mascara but unlike other mascara primers, this one is black so I use this just by itself. It’s not heavy and it’s subtle but definitely makes a difference. If I were to go out at night, I’ll apply another coat of actual mascara and because the primer works so well I look like I have fake lashes on. aimee_song_of_style_beauty_must_havesI know I’m not the only one who is obsessed with the NARS the Multiple stick in Orgasm. It gives me an instant glow on my cheeks and is super easy to apply so I just apply it with my fingers without using a brush. The cool thing about Nars Orgasm is that it’s really flattering on so many different skin tones. My girlfriends and I all love this shade.

Thanks to some mascara and blush, I look awake but do I feel awake? Not really… so I fake it with some perfume. Throughout the years, I went from zero perfume to collecting so many (from Marc Jacobs to Michael Kors) and naturally, since I like everything Chloe, I really like the scent of this Chloe Pen Spray Fragrance. It’s so small and easy to carry and the fresh scent helps me feel awake!

  9. I love that Nars Orgasm multiple! I used to use that Chloe perfume, but now im really into Philosophy scents, I like perfumes that smell clean, hehe. I don’t know how to explain it, but to me those scents are really refreshing! Right now, I am really obsessed with It Cosmetics ill just wear their CC+ all day long and it gives my face such a perfect look, as if I tried really hard on my makeup. I would recommend it to anyone, as well as their Powder brow stick! Let me know if you try them, they are truly awesome.

  10. You look so chic and beautiful in this outfit! Loving the tips, easy to follow and easy to get! I too, don’t remember the last time I slept 8 hours, oh well! But I do love applying a great mascara for an instant feeling awake boost, and also drinking coconut water helps! ;)


  11. I love Chloe perfumes :) Actually being a traveller myself, seeing influencers like you and Chriselle travelling non-stop and pushing through everything, whilst looking fab inspires me to do more and look good all the time.

  13. I’ve been following you since 2008 when you had on the Steve Madden tassle heels. You’ve come a long way from Steve Madden to Chanel and I’m loving it. I love your transformation. So proud. Keep up the good work.

    I love Nars and I love how you hang out with your dad. I also am huge self portrait fan. I’ve bought quite a few sweaters and skirts from there.

    Thanks for your blog.

  18. This is a lovely post and I would love to own the NARS Multiple in Orgasm as it is such a lovely shade! To help me look more awake in the morning, I apply white eyeliner to my waterline and a highlighter to the tops of my cheeks (my current favourite is theBalm’s Mary Lou Manizer) as my eyes look more open and it adds a bit of glow to my complexion. Love this outfit too :) x
