Jewel posted a light-hearted video of her “morning” face.

Jewel jokes about her tired “morning” face.

The “Foolish Games” singer, 49, shared a makeup-free video of herself on Instagram on Sunday and lightheartedly expressed her frustration with her post-bed appearance.

“I’m in Las Vegas and I wake up. I didn’t drink a single drop of alcohol, nothing. And I look like five kilometers of bad road. Why?’ she said laughing.

“My face is always on strike in Las Vegas,” she continued. ‘Don’t know. I walk through the casinos and my eyes are burning.”

“It must all be a waste,” she joked.

Jewel went on to explain that the situation was only made worse by the fact that she forgot to take one of her essential skincare products with her on the trip.

‘Do you know what I do for a living? To travel. Do you think I’m good at packing? Well, I suck,” she admitted. “Somehow I don’t even have a facial cleanser in my entire toiletry bag. I’m 49 years old. How can I not pack a cleanser?”

The musician’s followers were quick to assure her that she looks beautiful, dry desert air or not. “You can never look bad, you are beautiful. I think sometimes we just wake up tired from everything we have to deal with as humans,” one person wrote.

Another commented with some advice: “That’s because there’s no moisture there🥰🥰. Drink some water.”

As her video continued, Jewel switched topics and revealed her big plans for the evening ahead: a U2 concert at Sphere. “I’m really excited,” she said of seeing the Irish rock band.

She also mentioned that the National Finals Rodeo (NFR) was happening in town at the same time – and seeing all the Western-clad attendees made her nostalgic.

“Y’all, I’m staying at this hotel, and there are so many cowboys. I love seeing it. It’s a sea of ​​cowboy hats. It’s like the ghost of Christmas in the past. I’ve spent decades of my life spent at the NFR,” she explained. “It’s a trip to be here. It brings back so many memories. Great memories. I love seeing all the country folk here.”
