i swear by my: eye brightener

Raise a hand if you always look tired.  Ahem…I said a hand, not both…

If you’re anything like me, you roll out of bed, look in the mirror and shudder.  Whose eyes are those?  Certainly not mine.  Even after your standard makeup application with cover-up, depuffer, the works; your eyes still look like they’d rather be curled up with your pillow than out conquering the world.  Sure we all spend considerable amounts of time covering up those lovely dark circles that seem to appear out of nowhere, but the real culprit of our tired façade lies in the redness on the bottom rim of your eyes.  My standard solution was to just cover it up with dark eyeliner, until I discovered Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener!


By applying this flesh-colored liner to the inner rims of your eyes, you instantly look awake and ready to tackle the day!  The brightener combats the redness associated with tired eyes to reveal a fresh, natural look.  I’ll admit I’m a morning person, but that doesn’t mean I always look like I’m ready for anything…this brightener helps match my appearance to my mood.  Especially during allergy seasson – this has been a lifesaver for me. 

Smashbox Eye Beam Double-Ended Brightener is available at Sephora for only $22.
