Bright Eyes for Early Mornings

     We've all had those days when you have to wake up early (for school, work, ect.) and you look like you haven't slept in a week. I think it's really important for us girls to know how to look more awake, so we can feel more confident and ready to tackle the day. So, let's just jump right in!

My lighting was kind of bad, you can't see the shimmer or white eyeliner... But  I still look awake!:)

Makeup Used:
-Neutrogena Healthy Skin Brightening Eye perfecter
-Urban Decay's  Eyeshadow Primer Potion 
-Virgin by Urban Decay
-Naked by Urban Decay
-Any eyelash curler
-Maybelline's One by One Volum' Express mascara
-Wet n' Wild eyeliner in White

  1. First off, apply the eye-brightener onto your dark circles, and dab the concealer until it is blended out. I really like this concealer, because it actually works for covering up my dark circles, unlike most.
  2. Apply your eyeshadow base, and use a light shimmery color from lids to brow bone. This color will make your eyes look brighter.
  3. Use any white eyeliner to highlight the inner corner of your eyes and the browbone.
  4. Taking a Q-tip, go over your water line, removing excess liquid before you apply your eyeliner.
  5. Rim your water line with the white eyeliner. This will create the illusion of more whites to your eye, making your eyes appear a lot bigger and brighter. This one step makes you look so much more awake.
  6. Take a gel eyeliner brush, or any eyeshadow brush, and go over the eyeliner with a white eyeshadow so keep it from fading.
  7. Use a skin colored eyeshadow right under your white eyeliner so it doesn't smudge. That would ruin the effect it had on your eyes. 
  8. Curl your lashes. This step can really make your eyes look a lot more open!!
  9. Use only one coat of mascara, to keep the curl. Too much will make your eyes look heavy, making you seem more tired.
     And that's it! This is a really, really easy look that I wear usually every Monday haha. But if you even don't have time for a lot of eye products, just make sure to curl your lashes and apply the white eyeliner. Works like a charm!
