5 Best Makeup Products For Nurses: How To Fake 8 Hours Of Sleep In Eight Minutes

  1. A Nude Pencil Works Wonders for Tired Eyes

On any normal “I got eight hours of sleep” day, a smoky smudge will do just fine. But, a nurse’s day is never normal, so you need to pay a little extra attention to how you highlight your eyes and eye area. You might think that a white liner is the best way to make your eyes look bigger and brighter, but that’s not necessarily the case. As it turns out, a nude pencil work wonders for tired eyes. Because a nude color is less visible than white, it can help open the eyes, making them look awake.

For those frequent nights (or days) when you don’t want to look haggard and exhausted, consider using Tarte’s Lights, Camera, Lashes Inner Rim Liner. This brightening eyeliner has an instant wide-awake effect, perfect after a long nursing shift. More than that, it’s free of parabens, mineral oil, sulfates, and synthetic fragrance.

  1. Just a Touch of Color on the Cheeks

On the days you wake up looking less than rested, a little touch of color on the cheeks can brighten instantly even the most tired face. Lancome’s Blush Subtil will help you win the battle with long, exhausting nursing shifts and unflattering hospital fluorescent lighting. Oil-free, this blush provides a subtle and smooth pop of color that looks natural and stays put most of the day. Not to mention that it will brighten your face, giving you a rosy, doll-like appearance. There are 22 shades you can choose from, so you’ll certainly find a color that is right for your skin tone.

  1. Use Eye-Opening Mascara

If the eyes are the window to the soul, yours are telling the world that you’re not getting enough sleep. A touch of mascara will not only make your eyes look big, but it will also enhance the white of your eyes. Smashbox’s Photo Op Eye Brightening Mascara comes with a cutting-edge brush that curls and lifts every lash, giving you a wide-eyed effect.

Nobody knows the importance of making time for oneself quite like a nurse. If you want to be able to take good care of your patients, you need to take care of yourself as well. Besides getting enough sleep, eating healthy, and exercising, pay close attention to your beauty routine.
