5 Minute Bright Eyes

We’ve all been there. Scrambling in the morning after a long night of…parties, studying, or even working. Here’s a five-minute makeup fix to give you back some time so you can grab your favorite coffee and perhaps, a chocolate croissant before work or class. With this trick, not only do you cut your makeup application time, but it’s a quick fix to give your tired eyes a boost.

We can skip the face primer, foundation, concealer and blush, because… who are we kidding?

Time is ticking! Here’s what I used:

  • The Socializer Pen in Bright Lights
  • e.l.f. Cosmetics Eye Widener in Pearl White
  • Maybelline Master Drama Eyeliner in Midnight Master
  • Youngblood Cosmetics Eyeshadow in Pink Diamond
  • Maybelline Color Sensational Lipstick in Very Cherry #635

Shimmer, my friends is key in this situation. First, use the Socializer pen under your eye to recover them. What I love about this pen is the fact it is designed for mornings to soothe, depuff and diminish dark circles. Now to brighten the eyes. Apply the Pink Diamond or any pink to white shimmer shadow, from your lids up to the eyebrow bone. Don’t forget the inner corners of your eyes! Use a white to light nude eyeliner and line your waterline to open up your eyes, then finish off with with your favorite eyeliner. I did my usual winged liner on top and went halfway on the bottom to keep the eyes open.

P.S. Just putting on a red lip perks up an exhausted face!

Sometimes, you want to get things done at lightening speed. Then, you will have more time to do things you love, like have breakfast in the morning. I hope you find this trick helpful!
