A quick way to add life to your face? Pink cheeks! Apply cheery Urban Decay Afterglow Powder Blush in Quickie ($17) to your apples—it blends right in, giving you a natural-looking flush.
Per-fékt Eye Perfection Gel in Refreshed ($45) conceals dark circles and eases puffiness (thanks to cucumber extract). And the light-reflecting tint gives your eye area an extra burst of brightness.
Premoisturizer, apply SleekSkin Skin Treat Calm ($79), a serum that hydrates with green tea.
Clinique Vitamin C Lip Smoothie Antioxidant Lip Colour in Pink Me Up ($17.50; Clinique counters) protects lips with açaí berry, and the sheer candy-pink color lights up your face on dreary days.
Swipe Vapour Trick Stick in Luster ($18) along brow bones and cheekbones, then blend. The sheer, pearly-pink highlighting cream perks up your whole face.
Smooth a few drops of Biolage Delicate Care Organic Certified Oil Treatment ($24) onto dry hair to tame flyaways and add shine. The organic olive and argan oils make dry, coarse hair softer over time.
To look rested, add black currants to your next trail mix. Women who eat the tiny fruit have less-noticeable dark circles, according to a Japanese study. Black currants may increase blood flow to veins under the eyes, reducing the shadows they create beneath your skin. Who knew?
