It’s Day 3 of the transition into Daylight Savings, and if you’re still wishing you could crawl back into bed this morning, the good news is you can feel that way, but you don’t have to look that way. While we can’t make up for that lost hour of beauty sleep, with an endless supply of fatigue-fighting products on the market, it’s possible to fake a full night’s rest in just a few minutes. From energy-boosting moisturizers to instant eye-brighteners, we narrowed down our top 10 favorites for faking a full-night’s sleep.
Need an alternative to a red-lip? For spring, designers like DKNY, Prabal Gurung, and Rag & Bone debuted a fresh orange lip on the runway where it certainly made a statement — and a few new fans, including InStyle‘s Beauty Director Kahlana Barfield. “There is definitely an orange lipstick for every skin tone,” she says in the video above. “Typically, the darker your skin, the brighter you can go, but it’s really all about trial and error.”
For tips on how you can wear an orange hue, watch the full video where Barfield breaks down the look and gives step-by-step instructions on how to apply the bright shade. “I think an orange lip is much less intimating than a red lip, it’s not as harsh and it’s bright so it’s really cheerful and it puts anyone in a good mood.” You can also shop a few of Barfield’s suggested items — like Bite Beauty’s Matte créme lip crayon ($24) and Maybelline’s lipcolor ($8)—just by clicking over to 20th.instyle.com.

Happy 30th birthday, Olivia Wilde! The stunning actress has every reason to celebrate: Not only has she found happiness with her funnyman fiancé, Jason Sudeikis (who gave her a beyond-jaw-dropping vintage emerald-and-diamond engagement ring), but she also has a baby on the way! She’s treating her pregnancy with her own brand of humor, thanking her 1.25 million Twitter followers for their congratulations with this tweet: “WOW. You guys are awesome. So kind. Thank you thank you thank you! PS. Babies eat mostly salsa right?”
InStyle’s August 2013 cover girl—who appeared in the Oscar-nominated Her and is due to appear in upcoming films like the dramedy Better Living Through Chemistry, co-starring Sam Rockwell, as well as the comedy The Longest Week alongside Jason Bateman and Billy Crudup—is also intent on using her voice to make a difference. Wilde started a Crowdrise campaign to benefit Artists for Peace and Justice, which serves the poorest communities in Haiti with programs in education and healthcare.
Wilde is not only funny and philanthropic, she’s also a red-carpet stunner: InStyle named her one of the 10 best-dressed stars at the 2014 Golden Globes for her bump-hugging dark-green Gucci gown. And before she became a mama-to-be, InStyle.com readers voted her A.L.C crop top ensemble at the 2013 ESPY Awards as one of the top 5 looks of 2013. A Revlon spokesperson, she’s also the celebrity face of Avon’s Today. Tomorrow. Always. scent collection.

How do models pop up looking perfectly dewy and fresh-faced on the runways – coming off of no sleep and back-to-back shows? They get a little help from bargain drugstore products, like good old Vaseline. That’s right, that slippery salve can give you a glow so youthful and radiant even J.Lo would be jelly. We see pros often reach for it for really fresh, almost wet-looking sheen. For tips on how you can pull of the look, take a peek at the video to see exactly where you should slather it on.
Makeup artists are called many names: pros, painters, geniuses, saviors – but mixologists? Yep, go ahead and add that moniker to the list. To create the sexy, supple pouts you see on runway models, artists often dip their brushes into two, three, or even four shades of lipstick to whip up custom hues on the spot. It’s a cinch to do, if you have the right tool.
One of our favorite makeup artist tricks is using a pill case to hold dozens of lipsticks and create a customizable lipstick palette. Check out this video to see how palette pros pack on set—then score one for yourself at a store like Muji (or visit muji.us for locations). Now pucker up!
