Fake a Full Night’s Sleep: Makeup Tips for Tired Eyes

Why can't things be how they are in the movies -- you roll out of bed after a restless night of sleep with not a dark circle in sight? Alas, we don't walk around with makeup artists trailing us. But just because we don't have a makeup crew on call, doesn't mean we can't steal their trade secrets for looking wide awake when we're not! Here are four ways to perk up your peepers in an instant.

Step 1: Pump Up the Moisture
The best remedy for tired eyes is hydration, says celebrity makeup artist Amy Rittiner, who has worked with Julia Roberts and Gwyneth Paltrow. An eye cream that contains caffeine will soften crow's feet and reduce puffiness. Once absorbed, you're ready to apply concealer and other makeup products around the eyes.

Step 2: Cut the Crimson
Red-rimmed eyes are a dead giveaway that you haven't been getting enough sleep. To look bright eyed and fresh again, Australian makeup artist Napoleon Perdis suggests using a white or nude eyeliner on the waterline of the eyes to disguise any unwanted redness.

Step 3: See the Light
To eliminate dark circles from the undereye area, use a concealer with an orange or peach undertone to counteract blue and purple tones. Use a small amount on a brush or your ring finger. Tap and press it onto the undereye area, right to the outer corner, and onto the eyelid. This takes away all traces of darkness and gives the appearance of fresher, more lifted eyes.

Step 4: Open Your Eyes
Don't underestimate the power of mascara. "I always say mascara first because it is the wake-up call for your face," Perdis says. Adding this instant definition gives direction to the rest of your look and makes the eyes look bigger, brighter, and more awake.
