Bad Habits, Be Gone

Say No To Puffiness

We all get bags under our eyes but taking a few minutes to settle the swelling makes your peepers look more awake and bigger.

Hide Your Dark Side

Apply a concealer under the eye, in a shade slightly lighter than your foundation to illuminate and brighten the whole area.

Cue The Curl

Taking a few minutes to curl your lashes instantly opens the eyes and makes you look awake.

Walk The (Tight)Line

Lining the inner rim of your top lid with a dark brown or black pencil makes lashes look fuller.

Color In The Lines

Adding a subtle pop of color on the lids draws attention from the rest of your face directly to your peepers.

Go Nude, Always

Using a dark pencil to line the lower waterline can accentuate dark circles. Instead, use a nude pencil to instantly brighten the entire area.

Increase The Crease

Defining your crease with a darker eye shadow adds dimension and creates the look of large eyes.
