3 Tips for Achieving Wide Awake Eyes: Your Guide to Bright Eyes

Achieving fresh, wide-awake eyes requires the right techniques and products. The transformative power of makeup is no secret to us, and with a little help from our brightening, blurring concealer and setting powder, you can easily achieve a fresh and radiant appearance whether you’ve had a good night's sleep or not. From concealing shadows to illuminating the high points of the orbital socket, effectively diminishing dark circles and the appearance of fatigue couldn’t be easier with our guide to building a bright, wide-eyed look. Here are our three tips for mastering wide-awake eyes day or night.

Conceal and Brighten with the Bright Eyes Set

Whether you’ve had one too many nights of bad sleep or a genetic predisposition towards dark circles, the first step to building wide-awake eyes is to brighten and conceal them. Our Bright Eyes Skin Mimetic Concealer + Diffusion Set boasts two must-haves for a bright, smooth and radiant under eye: our hydrating, medium coverage concealer and translucent, finely-milled pressed powder. Formulated with skin-loving ingredients like red algae, adenosine, and Green Coffee Extract, our Skin Mimetic Concealer not only conceals and corrects dark circles, but also hydrates the skin while visibly reducing the appearance of dark circles. This concealer seamlessly blends into the skin for a hydrated, radiant finish, while Diffusion Set locks concealer in place for a crease-free under-eye that lasts throughout the day. Together, this concealer and pressed powder are guaranteed to brighten, blur and tend to the delicate under eye skin.

All Over Lid Brightening with Eye Shaping Stylo

Concealing imperfections isn’t the only way to awaken tired eyes. Attain that fresh, wide-awake appearance by sweeping your eyelids with our Eye Shaping Stylo — a versatile, cream-matte eye stick designed for shading, shaping, and defining eyes. For an all-over wash of color, opt for lighter shades like Shore, Terrain and Horizon, which are perfect for creating highlights or brightening lids.

Add a Touch of Shimmer with Continuum Eyeliner

The finishing touch? Amp up the brightness with a hint of shimmer using our Continuum Gel Eyeliner in shades Celestial, Halo or Interstellar. Whether you prefer a fully lined lid, a touch of shimmer on your lower lash line, or a subtle sparkle on the inner corners, this gel eyeliner adds a highlight guaranteed to make eyes pop.
