Makeup Tips for Tired Eyes
Many people struggle with tired-looking eyes, whether it's due to a lack of sleep, stress, or other factors. Fortunately, there are a few makeup techniques you can use to help brighten up your eyes and make you look more alert and awake. In this blog post, we'll go over some tips and tricks for applying makeup for tired eyes.
Start with a Good Base
Before you begin applying makeup, it's important to start with a good base. Make sure to cleanse your face thoroughly and apply a moisturizer to hydrate your skin. Oxygenetix Hydro-Matrix is gentle to use next to your eye area and will help rejuvenate your skin and prime for your base makeup.
If you have dark circles under your eyes, use a high pigmented concealer to even your skin tone. Use a concealer shade that is one to two shades lighter than your foundation to brighten the area. Oxygenetix new Oxygenating Concealers are heavily pigmented and won't create creases or sink into fine lines, making them the ideal concealers for everyday use.
Brighten Your Eyes with Eyeshadow
Use a light-colored eyeshadow to brighten up your eyes. Shades like champagne, beige, or light pink can help make your eyes appear more awake. Apply the eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes and along your brow bone. This will help draw attention to the upper part of your face and make your eyes look more alert.
Define Your Lashes
When you have tired eyes, defining your lashes can help make your eyes appear more open and awake. Use a volumizing mascara to add thickness to your lashes, and consider using an eyelash curler to lift your lashes and make your eyes look more open.
Add Definition with Eyeliner
Using a white or nude eyeliner on your lower waterline can help make your eyes appear brighter and more awake. This technique can also help counteract redness that may be making your eyes look tired. Avoid using black eyeliner on your lower lash line, as this can make your eyes appear smaller and more tired.
Use Highlighter to Add Radiance
Finally, using a highlighter can help add radiance to your skin and make you look more awake. Apply a highlighter to the inner corners of your eyes, the bridge of your nose, and the tops of your cheekbones. This will help create a luminous, glowing effect that can help draw attention away from tired eyes.
In conclusion, applying makeup for tired eyes is all about creating a bright, awake, and radiant look. By starting with a good base, using light-colored eyeshadow, defining your lashes, adding definition with eyeliner, and using highlighter, you can create a fresh and youthful appearance even on days when you're feeling tired.
