>>> they say the best beauty secret is getting eight full hours of sleep every night. we have makeup trips, with "shape" magazine's editor at large. bahar, welcome back.

>> if you can't get the eight hours, there are things you can do?

>> absolutely. first trick is to use a great scrub. the reason, it's going to exfoliate your skin, get rid of those dead skin cells, increase your circulation.

>> how often?

>> every single day. or every other day. a gentle scrub.

>> is this one new?

>> yes, it's from yes to grapefruit. it will invigorate your senses.

>> should you do this at night before you go to bed or in the morning?

>> this is in the morning that's going to boost your glow.

>> i want to lick it, too. that smells good.

>> foundation?

>> the next trick is to add a little bit of luminosity to your skin because you're tired. we love to mix just a touch of your foundation and then you're going to add a little bit of liquid highlighter to this as well. the foundation of course --

>> takes on a little luminosity.

>> the foundation gets rid of the discoloration, foundation adds the special youthful glow.

>> all over your face?

>> yes, all over your face. you can add a little bit between your eyes as well for the extra glow.

>> what about color?

>> color is very important. always use a little bit of blush when you're tired. i like a cream-based blush because this is going to go on and give you a dewy look.

>> this will make you look all orangey.

>> it's very, very sheer.

>> not on hoda's deeply tanned skin.

>> you can use this on your lips or on your cheeks, dab a little bit on.

>> and blend, ladies, blend.

>> that's the key when you're tired. you want some color.

>> uh-huh.

>> and the eyes, you should be using an eye cream every single day. but when you're tired, your skin is extra dry and the wrinkles may be more pronounced. i love this duo from olay. using an eye cream, this little brush is really cool, it moist moisturizes and protects your lashes. it gives you a nice little open sensation in your eye. you look beautiful and bright-eyed.

>> okay.

>>> another really cool trick, this is a concealer pencil from --

>> thank you.

>> a concealer pencil from makeup forever. basically you put this on your undereye. so the water line of your eye, it --

>> you mean along the lid.

>> the lower lid.

>> inside the lower lid.

>> it makes your eye pop.

>> really?

>> exactly.

>> you can get that from makeup forever. mascara is a must. this one from smashbox has blue and black pigments, that makes the whites of your eyes really, really pop.

>> for any color eye?

>> any color eye.

>>> and the lips?

>> we all love a nude lip. but that can make you look washed out. so try to use something with a little pink shade. this one from bare minerals.
