After 5 minutes of staring into space, calculating the amount of times you’ve called in sick to work you realise you probably shouldn’t have pulled the sixth sick card just to binge watch 2 seasons of game of thrones…. which up until now was the best decision you’ve made your adult life!
But here we are now and you’re fully aware you can’t always rely on free booze on nights out because mama taught us how to be independent strong-willed women so now you gotta get up.
BUT it’s not all bad luckily for you, your friends at Pink Krown have devised a few tips and tricks which will help you if you haven’t had enough sleep, or you just need that extra few minutes with the snooze button without compromising your overall professional appearance.
SUNGLASSES WONT SAVE YOU THIS TIME!
Remove your eye bags with a frozen spoon
You just woke up with your eyes all puffy but you’ve got to look decent for a meeting today. Take two metal spoons and put them in the freezer wait for a couple of minutes until they are cold and frosty. Place them on top of your eyelids, handle-side up. The chill from the metal spoon will shrink the vessels and voila your bags are gone.
DESPERATE TIMES CALL FOR DESPERATE MEASURES
Iron your clothes with bath steam
No time to iron, going to work with a wrinkly blouse is never a good option. Whilst you are having a shower, hang the blouse onto the shower rod (not too close to the water!) just close enough for the steam can work its magic. Trap in the steam by closing the windows and the door, the longer the shower the better the results.
EYE WOKE UP LIKE THIS
Wake your eyes with white eyeliner
looking tired is not a good look, you can avoid it by using a nude or white eyeliner to really make your eyes pop (or hide how hung over you are). Using it on your waterline immediately after waking up and it will instantly brighten the appearance of your eyes, and there you have it, no one will be able to tell you had less than 4 hours sleep.
AVOID THE MESSY MASCARA
Use your oyster as a mascara shield
We’ve all been there, last-minute efforts to apply mascara on the top and lower lashes on a bumpy bus or train ride, tricky business—which is why this trick works a treat. Hold your oyster or bank card behind your lashes, then just go berserk with the mascara. Your lashes will be coated properly, any extra mascara will end up on your card and not your face!

Use paper clips as a bobby Pin substitute
Your bobby pins are nowhere to be found—which if were honest, happens waaay more than we’d like—unravel a paper clip and form a V-like shape like an open hairpin. Create a bun and secure your style with the paper clips for a quick and glamorous style that holds perfectly.
