How to brighten up your eyes

Your rating: None
In a few simple steps which takes just five minutes you can walk out of the door wide eyed and fresh faced.
What you'll need: 
Pink/White eyeliner
Translucent powder
Small fluffy brush
On freshly cleansed skin, apply a concealer that is two shades lighter than underneath your eyes. Apply in in a 'v' shape making sure to look down in the mirror and locate your dark circles.
Also apply a small amount of concealer onto your lids to give it an overall brightness.
Apply either the white or pink concealer in the inner corner of your eyes in a horizontal 'v' shape. This will brighten and make your eyes look wide awake. Choose the colour that suits you most.
Using the small fluffy brush apply a translucent powder underneath your eyes and on your eyelids to set the makeup.
Apply a brown/black mascara to your top eyelashes to set the look. If you want to go more dramatic apply it to both the top and bottom lashes.
This look can be altered and you can add eyeliner and eyeshadows as it is a base for all kinds of looks.
If you have a problem with creasing, do not apply translucent powder.
