Moisturizer, face oils, and eye cream will ruin your makeup, so don't use them if you plan on sleeping in your makeup.

Indeed, your usual skincare potions and lotions can be a no-go zone when you're breaking the cardinal rule of beauty sleep. It may seem counterintuitive, but less is more in this context. Applying these products can cause your makeup to smear or slide off, creating a less-than-ideal canvas to wake up with. If going bare-faced under your makeup feels daunting, opt for a primer instead. A good primer can give your skin a bit of a barrier and help keep your makeup in place while you catch those Z's.

Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase

Sleep on a Silk Pillowcase This way, you won't get as many breakouts.

***

Silk pillowcases are not only luxurious; they're also kinder to your skin. Unlike cotton, silk doesn't absorb moisture, which means your makeup is less likely to smudge and your skin retains its natural hydration throughout the night. Additionally, silk's smooth surface can reduce friction, helping to prevent wrinkles and minimize damage to your skin and hair. So, if you must sleep with makeup on, let the silky touch pamper your skin, keeping it as clear and smooth as it can be under the circumstances. After all, beauty sleep should be as gentle as possible.

Lay Mummy-style

Lay Mummy-style Try to sleep on your back, so that your makeup doesn't rub off on your pillow and sheets.

***

Keeping your face clear of the pillow can help prevent smudging and give your skin a little more room to breathe. If you're someone who tends to toss and turn, consider using a satin or silk pillowcase to reduce friction against your skin. This will not only help to keep your look intact but can be gentler on both your skin and hair. Try placing a soft bolster under your knees to encourage back sleeping; it can make the mummy-style position more comfortable and less likely to shift in the night.

Refresh Your Makeup in the AM

Spray some skin mist on your face and touchup the mascara that has faded away overnight.

After a night with your makeup still on, it's essential to wake your skin up gently. Dab a light moisturizer around areas that tend to dry out, such as under your eyes and around your mouth, to rehydrate the skin. Take a clean, fluffy brush and lightly dust on some translucent powder to eliminate any unwanted shine and to set your makeup for the day ahead. Carefully reapply a bit of concealer if you notice any blemishes or discoloration peeking through. A quick swipe of lip gloss can revive your look and add a fresh touch, ensuring you step out looking effortlessly put-together.

Never sleep in your makeup!

Sometimes when I'm just too tired I fall asleep in my makeup but I realized that clogs my pores more. Every time I wash it off, my skin is smoother and healthier in the am

This article made me want to wash my face lol

Just don't do it! Your face will look really gross!

Blech. I love removing my makeup and prepping my face for sleep. That's the time when your skin rejuvenates.

Don't do it !

Stupid and pointless article. Don't follow Kim ks advice. Do the right thing and remove your make up before going to bed.

Calm down everyone, it's not recommending sleeping with make up on, it's advice for those who choose to occasionally for whatever reason. I personally remove mine at night too but each to their own. Ugly comments are worse than sleeping one night in make up!!

The worst feeling in the world is to sleep with makeup on, unless it's an afternoon nap. If you want to see how bad it is to sleep on your makeup do so and when you remove it the next morning you'll probably saggy skin and acne all over your face

No night zits for me! I'm not doing this unless I have no choice.
