Kim Kardashian's big Parisian wedding is any day now and it looks like she's already experimenting with makeup looks. We still don't know what kind of look she's going to sport on the big day, but she did recently post a picture to Instagram of her rocking white eyeliner. Her eyes looked so bright and wide-awake you'd think she just came back from a relaxing, Caribbean vacation!

Not a lot of people know this, but white (or nude) eyeliner is such a quick and easy way to widen tired- looking eyes. I do this look all the time whenever I need a quick pick-me-up. The truth is, most of us have crazy-busy lives. Between work and kids, there's isn't always time for 8 hours of shut-eye. And let's face it, there's nothing more offensive than someone telling you, "You look tired" especially when you're NOT. Pisses me off every time!

Want to look bright-eyed and fresh-faced in a matter of seconds? Check out some of my wake-up tips below!

A few years ago I heard a makeup artist recommend Visine Maximum Redness Relief ($7) for brighter looking eyes. I remember she said that it instantly eliminates redness and brightens up the whiteness in your eyes. Just because you didn't get eight hours of sleep last night doesn't mean the world has to know!


Conceal 2

Who ever invented under-eye concealer is a freaking genius! It's amazing how quickly it can lighten any darkness you might have around your eyes. But you want to make sure you use the right formula. A lot of makeup artists recommend Clé de Peau Beauté Concealer ($70). It covers so well and doesn't crease either!


Curl lashes 3

To create that eye-opening effect, I like to use an eyelash curler to help give lashes a lift and to curl them out. I love Bobbi Brown Curl Eyelash Curler ($25) because it comes with extra cushiony lash pads that helps grab every single lash.

Use a light liner 4

Try applying a white or nude liner to the inside and even outside of your lower lash lines. This helps brighten up eyes and makes them appear instantly bigger. Try Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Kajal Eyeliner in Nude ($4).


Apply mascara 5

I then apply about three coats of mascara, just to my upper lashes using a wiggling motion so that the mascara grabs on to each and every lash. These days I'm really loving Too Faced Better Than Sex Mascara ($23). It separates lashes so easily, gives them length and thickness but also curls them too. What more could you ask for?
