How to Fake the Look of 8 Hours Sleep with Lottie London

We’ve all been there. Stayed up way too late, snoozed the alarm, and then panic hits – you’ve got to fake looking like you’ve had 8 hours sleep that you definitely didn’t have. As a student, we know being able to fake it ‘til you make it is always the name of the game.  

In this blog, Lottie London brings you skin awakening, face brightening, high impact products that’ll leave you looking fresh faced and ready to take on the day!

Spritz ‘n’ Go

When you’re tired, your skin will grass you up by looking dull and lifeless. Wake yourself and your skin up with a quick hydration boost to leave it looking plump and dewy. The Skin Proud Refresher – Hydrating Pineapple Mist instantly refreshes and hydrates tired skin. Blended with super hydrating Japanese rose water, refreshing aloe vera and refining witch hazel, the ultra-fine mist will give you the wake up boost you need. Top Tip – keep it in your fridge so that the super cooling mist will also tighten pores and leave skin looking more awake. Looking for more? Lock in hydration with an ultra-lightweight, sorbet-like gel like  Skin Proud Sorbet  that delivers skin-loving goodness on a major scale, quickly absorbs and makes for the perfect pre-makeup step. 

Glow Get It

Tired skin = dull skin. Fake that ‘I’ve slept for hours’ glowy skin look with an illuminating primer that smooths skin and blurs imperfections, redness and dark circles caused by lack of sleep. The Lottie London Coconut Primer is infused with coconut extract + vitamin B5 + micro-pearls that add a nourishing soft, natural shimmer to give you all the dewy skin vibes that can be worn alone or under makeup.  

Blush in a Rush

When you’re tired, skin becomes sallow and dull – a touch of blush is your answer here to give your face back some much needed life! Meet Lottie London’s Ombré Blushes – lightweight and smooth, these blushers leave a healthy flush and sheen in an instant which leave you looking like you’ve not only slept all night, but that you’ve even managed to fit in a morning gym session – winning! 

Freckle Fun

Nothing says ‘I woke up like this’ like a sprinkling of freckles. But with Summer being stolen from us, sometimes, you’ve just got to fake it. Freckle Tint is a temporary skin tint that adds instant freshness to any look. To use, simply dot onto the face and set with translucent powder for a natural look, or go bold and create a look with ALL the freckles you’ve always dreamt of babe! Plus, the more freckles, the more distraction from any other signs of tiredness 😉

Brow Wow

We all know good brows, with the right shape and definition can lift the eye area and give you that wide awake look. Cheat your way to the same flawless finish of Microbladed Brows for a fraction of the price with Lottie London’s  Arch Rival: Microblade – the ultra-fine precision 4-pronged tip allows you to create the smallest of strokes to mimic your natural brow hair for brows that look straight-from-the-salon fresh. 

Glossy Lips

Lack of sleep often comes hand in hand with parched lips. Hydrate your pout and finish your look with instantly juicy lips with absolutely no tackiness with Lottie London’s Oil Slick. Infused with almond oil for instant hydration, plus nourishing cherry or vanilla extracts for the sweetest lips around! 

All that’s left to do is Pout and go out… nobody will ever know you’ve not slept a wink!

Save 25% when you spend over £25 on the Lottie London website – Simply use code FRESHERS25 at checkout. Shop now!

Virtual Freshers Festival: A Free Online Student Event

Virtual Freshers Festival takes place on 29th September – 1st October. Get free tickets here.

 

Most students are returning to university this year facing a rather strange scenario. No ‘back to uni’ parties, no real freshers week, and no chance to experience ‘normal’ university life. Here at Freshers Festival we want to make sure nobody misses out on their university experience.

What is Virtual Freshers?

Introducing Virtual Freshers Festival: The free online event open to all students aged 16+ in the UK. The event takes place on our online platform, and has some awesome features:

 

  • Freebies & content from brands such as Domino’s, Disney, Google & Red Bull
  • Internship & employment opportunities with some large recruiters
  • Content from the biggest student influencers, including Megan Short & Caitlin
  • Dedicated music sessions with some top upcoming artists
  • A free CV clinic & workshop
  • Networking & social opportunities with thousands of students
  • Interactive events such as treasure hunts, fashion shows, and more
  • Competitions & giveaways worth £1000s 
  • Live content, Q&A’s, and virtual meet-ups
  • Virtual after parties

Virtual Freshers Festival is also working with some of the biggest universities & colleges in the UK to help deliver the VIrtual Freshers Festival for their students.

How do I get involved?

There are so many ways to get involved with Virtual Freshers Festival.

You can get tickets for the event here.

If you want to get involved with our ambassador program to win big prizes, please email [email protected]

To enter some of our giveaways, please follow us on Instagram and TikTok.

Best UK Student Discounts Right Now

With shops and restaurants slowly starting to re-open following lockdown, there are plenty of student deals to be found right now. Here are some of our favourite discounts right now.

 

Clothing:

There are some ridiculous discounts you can get right now.

Nasty Gal is doing 50% off everything, Pretty Little thing are offering between 10-80% on all items, and ASOS are doing up to 50% off Summer styles.

In terms of student specific discounts, Nike do 10% off (as always), I Saw It First do 15% off (with Student Beans), and New Look do 10% off (with UniDays).

 

Tech:

Get ready for the Summer with your Spotify playlist, and Spotify now offer 3 months of Premium Student for free. Amazon music also do a free trial for students.

Speaking of Amazon, you can still join Prime Student free for 6 months with a valid university or college email address.

Also, rather than paying £70 / year for Microsoft Office, you can probably get it for free using your academic email address. Free Microsoft Word is something every student needs.

For more tech deals, including 10% off Apple and 10% off Dell, check out the Unidays technology page.

 

Takeaway:

We’ve all been guilty of a little too many takeaways recently. Uber Eats runs one of our favourites, with each customer getting a £15 off a £20 order code to give to a friend/family member who doesn’t have an Uber Eats account.

Dominos do a 35% student discount, but it may be better to use one of their on-site codes, such as 50% off pizza orders over £30.

 

Restaurant:

Many restaurants currently operate with a ‘click & collect’ ordering system, and Pizza Express have a great discount you can use. Unidays offer a 30% off Pizza Express (at select locations).

What about when restaurants re-open next week? Ask do a 40% Student discount on Mondays and Tuesdays, Chiquitos do 25% off with a valid Student ID, and Byron do 30% off everything with a Unidays account.

 

We hope you enjoyed our short guide. Of course, the best way to save money on food is to cook yourself, so check out our student cooking guide for some top tips and tricks.
