Step 1: Brush up your brows to create fullness and create the illusion of a lifted eye.


Step 2: Apply a brightening concealer in stripes to create a triangle. The peak of the triangle should be closest to your inner eye.


Step 3: Blend concealer with finger in a dabbing motion down toward nose and up toward outer eye.


Step 4: Dab on a small amount of powder or cream highlighter. This can be a shimmery vanilla or champagne eyeshadow, or in my case a cheek highlighter.


Step 5: Apply powder or cream to brow bone right below brows.


Step 6: Also apply highlighter in inner corners of eyes.


Your friends will wonder what your trick is to all your "bright, rested" eyes.
