The Early Morning Wake Me Uppers

Raise your hand if you have ever been personally victimized by early mornings *raises hand in manner of Mean Girls scene*. My alarm clock is set at 6.30AM these days, which equals not a lot of time for makeup. However, certain products do help me look awake-ish at this unghastly hour.
Next to the basics of concealer, bronzer, brow pencil and mascara, I have two products that instantly awaken my entire complexion in the early mornings: a brightening pen and eyeshadow. These products can make my face go from 'no sleep' to 'fully rested' in a matter of seconds.

The first one is the L'OrĂ©al Lumi Magique (£8.49), which I dot under my eyes and under and above the arch of my eye brows for some extra brightness.

Next comes a layer of Chanel Illusion D'Ombre in Emerveille (£24.00) on my eyes and inner corners. This gives my lids a peachy, healthy glow to mask the fact that I am actually still asleep.

Both products are holy grails for days when sleep is not a prerogative. What are yours?
