Brighten The Darkest Corners Of Your Face With…Drum Roll, Please… HIGHLIGHTER!
It seems like a no-brainer, right? Don’t worry, we also had a “why didn’t I think of that?” moment when we learned this one. At the inner corners of your eyes, along the bridge of your nose, apply a tiny dot of liquid highlighter. This simple trick helps to make your eyes like wide awake and blatantly bright in two ways: first, the highlighter counteracts the shadow being overcast buy your nose, eyebrow bones, and lashes. Second, the brightening cosmetic will absorb and reflect any light source around you. Seems like a win-win to us!
Apply Your Under Eye Concealer With A Modern and Geometric Flare.
When you apply concealer in the curved shape bellow your lower eyelid, you may be brightening your under eye circles, but you are then contrasting your cheek bones, which are really only an inch or less below your eyes. Kick the curved concealer method to the curb and apply your concealer in a V or upside-down triangle shape, then blend it outward. This will make your eyes look fuller, brighter, and like you’ve just woken up from a full night’s sleep.
Curl Your Lashes Ladies!
Even if you have only seconds to get ready, curling your lashes makes a major difference. When your lashes are left straight and flat they look thin, create a shadow, and just make your eyes look small. After curling your lashes for only a few seconds, your eyes will look wide and bright.
Sticking With The Neutral Theme.
You can make your eyes look nothing short of amazing by wearing a neutral lip color. Yes, lip color! This works by muting the lips, thus redirecting the attention upward, making your eyes look big and bright.
White Colored Liner On Your Waterline
Maybe you’ve heard it before, but our celeb stylist can’t stress this one enough: use a nude or white colored liner on your waterline. Not only does this banish redness and bloodshot eyes, but it makes your eyes look brighter and wider than ever before.
Keep Up With Grooming Your Brows.
Even though it can be a pain, and it might even seem overrated today, it is highly recommended that you keep up with grooming your brows. Where you tweeze, wax, or thread, having a defined brow shape will frame your eyes. If you go the extra step and fill in your brows you will be pleasantly surprised with how bright your eyes look.
