It’s been a loooooong week. And it’s showing on your face. Here are some easy tricks to look more refreshed for when that clock hits 5!
Use brightening eye drops. It’s the easiest, quickest way to make eyes look more awake. Visine does the trick, but shouldn’t be used consistently.
A fantastic alternative to eye drops: White eyeliner on the inner, lower rim of your lash line. It is a classic makeup artist trick to brighten the eyes. If pure white feels too intense, go for a very pale pink, ivory, or even silver.

Avoid dark eye shadows. They cast the entire lid in darkness. Use a flesh-toned hue instead to even out skin tone, then top it with a sheer gold shadow, applied from lashline to crease.
