Bright Eyes5:43 PM
This FOTD is focused on making you look brighter and more awake, which is really great for those of us who work 40 hour weeks and don't get enough sleep at night! There are a few key elements to the "bright eyes" look:
1. White shimmer shadow.
You'll use this to highlight your brow bone as well as the inner-eye tearducts and the inner half of your lower lid. It is very key in opening up your eyes.
2. Black (or navy) mascara
Black serves as a contrast to the white shadow and will give an extra pop to your eyes, while navy mascara actually counteracts the redness in the sclera making your eyes look clearer and whiter.
3. Undereye highlighter or concealer
I really love using Everyday Minerals "sunlight" concealer under my eyes. I don't have bad dark circles, but an old makeup artist's trick is to use an undereye brighter anyhow because it makes you look more awake and youthful.
For the rest of my face, I kept the look really simple with neutral copper shadows and pink blush. You want to look healthy and natural as if it took no effort at all to look so bright and glowing from within! That's my trick for rolling into work looking like I got more than 5 or 6 hours of sleep the night before. ;)
