Let's be honest, mamas: It's no secret that we are all a little sleep deprived. It doesn't matter if it was a school project or laundry that kept us up late…we are all a little worn out. Unfortunately, our eyes seem to show our fatigue the fastest! Never fear, below are some tips and tricks for how to brighten tired eyes and make you look like you've just had ten blissful hours of sleep.

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