1)SKIP THE EYELINER UNDER THE EYE:

Instead, opt for lining the top of the lash line.  This focuses the eye to the top of the eyes instead of the lower lash line where the dreaded dark circles live.

2)APPLY A CHAMPAGNE OR FLESH COLORED EYELINER ON THE INNER RIM OF THE EYE

This is one of my favorites! It'm amazing what an instant difference it makes. These colors will camouflage the red/purplish colors that appear on the waterline when we are tired, sick or suffering from allergies making the eyes appear brighter.  They are also more natural looking than a white pencil.  Opt for a NON-WATERPROOF for a safer choice on the waterline.

3) HIGHLIGHT THE TOP OF YOUR BROWS

Apply a concealer, highlighter or matte eyeshadow a shade lighter than skin tone to the top of the brow. Second, softly blend the top edge into the skin.  Applying the same color just under the brow and at the bone by the arch gives a finished look.  

4)FILL IN YOUR BROWS

If they eyes are windows to the soul, the brows are the frame.  A defined brow draws the eye upward.  There are so many options, but I prefer a tinted brow wax or a clear wax with a tinted powder.  They sculpt and fill in.  Start at the center of the brow and move outward.  Then with small strokes move inward toward the center.  Gently brush in the direction of the hair to soften (usually up and outward) Don't go too dark in the front of the brow~you don't want to look angry! 

 

5)ADD A POP OF COLOR TO YOUR LIPS

Applying a brighter color lip will draw attention to your mouth takes the focus off your eyes. A brighter color also makes the lips look fuller and more youthful.
