The holiday season is full of awesome parties, which means you might find yourself spending more nights than one indulging in cocktails and staying up past your bedtime. But the next morning, chances are you won’t look your best – unless you take it easy on your makeup routine.

While you might feel inclined to cover up dark circles with heavy concealer and apply tons of makeup to distract people from the redness of your eyes, you’d be making the problem worse.

Alcohol and not getting enough sleep can both suck the moisture right out of your skin, which can make it dry and dull. Putting lots of product on top can enhance any flakes and make you look more tired.

Instead, opt for a tinted moisturizer rather than your regular foundation, which will moisturize while giving you light coverage. If you need more, use a dab of concealer just on the spots that you need covered.

Then, skip the brown or black eyeliner in favor of a nude eyeliner, and use it on your inner rims to make your eyes look brighter. Add a shimmery champagne eyeshadow and a bit of mascara, then add a tinted lip gloss. No one will ever know what you were up to last night!

Shayna reports on the latest makeup, skincare and fashion trends and will try to convince you on a regular basis that yes, you really should wear sunscreen daily. My favorite beauty product is... - Anything containing sea salt. It's probably the most amazing exfoliant I've ever used and it leaves my skin feeling fresh and smoother than ever. Can't leave the house without my... - Lip gloss. The rest of the day can be a total bust, but if I have a great gloss on I feel like at least I've done one thing right! I would describe my style as... - Definitely au naturale. While I love exploring new shades of eyeshadow and liner on special occasions, for me the most important part of any beauty regimen is keeping my skin clear and blemish-free.
