How to brighten the eyes
My eyes often have that tired look. Probably because I AM often tired. Ha! I have this ultra quick and subtle way to brighten my eyes and it only takes a few minutes to apply.
Nude eye liner
Silver eyeliner or eye shadow
Nude eye shadow
After applying foundation:
- Apply concealer under the eye.
- Brush nude/campaign colour eye shadow on the entire eye lid, right up to the eyebrow line.
- Draw skin coloured (nude) eyeliner on the bottom eye lid.
- Press silver eye shadow into the inner corner of the eye.
- Coat eyelashes with one layer of mascara.

I have never heard of nude eyeliner. I am excited by this, can you tell me what brand you use? I would like to get some and try it out. Your eyes do look brighter and more awake 🙂

There’s a great nude eyeliner by Rimmel – you can get it on the ASOS website, or in stores that sell Rimmel (though you can’t get this liner in NZ!). It’s a great inexpensive nude eyeliner. I got one for $60 (eek) and the Rimmel one is just as good! 🙂 You want to put this on the waterline (which is the inner eye rim). A waterproof eyeliner is essential: This part of the eye is ‘wet’ – and an eyeliner that isn’t waterproof won’t last!

that looks lovely, Kelly! Do you have foundations/loose powder over your entire face as well?

Yeah, have a bit of foundation on over my entire face. You do this after you put foundation on.

Thanks for the fantastic info, just wondering if you can tell which brands you used for concealer and eyeshadow?

I like MAC concealer (MAC Studio Sculpt Concealer NW25) and the eye shadow is from a Napoleon Nude Palette.
