Reduce redness 1
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!
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.
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?
