How to: Bright Wide Awake Eyes

Everyone has those days of extreme exhaustion where all you want to do is go back to sleep. For some of us ladies that may be every day! It definitely takes its toll and shows on your face especially in the eye area. Here is a makeup look that will help you achieve that wide awake look like you got that 10 hours of sleep!

 The main key to making your eyes look brighter is a white eyeliner pencil and lighter more natural eye shadow colors. 

How to achieve this look!..

First put any eye shadow primer all over your lid!

Step 1
Line entire inner eye with a white eye liner pencil including upper and lower water line. Blend the white liner into your lower lash line to soften it a bit.

Step 2 
Take the same white eye liner pencil and line your inner tear duct area
Over that white base you created add a light pink or white shimmery eye shadow (I used Urban Decay's Sin)

Step 3
Apply  a shadow that is a shade or two lighter than your skin tone to your entire lid. A shadow with a bit of shimmer will add an extra sparkle to your eye. :) (I used Urban Decay's Sidecar)

Step 4
Add a brown color that is a couple shades darker than your skin tone to your crease area to define your crease and add dimension to your eyes. (I used Mac's Embark)

Step 5
Put a matte white eye shadow under your brow

Curl your lashes and apply two coats of mascara to your top and bottom lashes. Apply a salmon colored concealer to your under eye circles to conceal any blue areas and bags. One of my current favorite concealers for under the eyes is Amazing Cosmetic's Amazing Concealer! 

Hope this helps. :)
