Regardless of lack of sleep, allergies, sickness, and stress, there are times when your eyes could use some extra help that exceeds what your concealing attempts can do alone. If so, then let me share a useful tip for whenever your eyes could use some added brightening power. This simple makeup trick works wonders to make you look like you had a few hours more sleep with the way it distracts the eye from that problem area.
You won’t believe how much better you’ll look by wearing highlighter along with that concealer for brightening eyes. Apply under eyes, near the top of your cheekbones and work your way over to the sides of your face. This one extra step will divert attention away from any remaining under eye darkness.
You could stop there, but I like drawing the eyes further to focus more on the upper-lip area. Try applying some of the highlighter in the two creases of your cheeks near your mouth and above your lip beneath your nose. Blend into your foundation carefully. This takes a bit more time, but the results are worth it, especially for those days when your eyes could benefit from some perking up.
I hope you try this makeup trick for brightening eyes because it is a keeper as far as yours truly is concerned.
