enter image description here It’s difficult in this modern age to get our 8 hours of beauty sleep a day, sure the caffeine will keep you going, however our skin is a bit more transparent than that. If you want a bright-eyed look after those late nights at work, try these beauty and makeup tips to fool all those around you. The correct products should not be harsh; people often get carried away with concealer so only use a small out when you really need it. The under eye area is delicate; one of the best beauty tips is to use as little product as you can. Avoid those zombie moments and achieve bright-eyed perfection with the following step-to-step guide on how to get bright eyes.

1. Eyeshadow

To keep the eyes open and bright try a metallic bronzed hue. The look should be natural. Buy online: Clinque Wear Everywhere Neutrals Eye Shadow Palette £32. Has a combination of nudes and earth tones for extra depth. The shades are also designed to be crease-proof and long-wearing.

2. Eyeliner

A white eyeliner in the corners of your eye and lash line can help you look instantly awake. Buy online: Nudestik Eye Pencil £24, this is super blending and waterproof. If you feel white eyeliner is too harsh, one of the best beauty tips is to apply a natural pencil, to the inner rims of your eyes. Buy Online: The award-winning Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil £15.50, it is velvety-soft and available in vibrant neutral tones.

3. Curl your eyelashes and follow with Mascara

Eyelash curlers have been forever endorsed by Kate Moss, the supermodel says this is one of her best beauty tips. Kate Moss has three, one in each makeup bag. This tool will prep your eyelashes for extra volume, follow with a mascara that will give both volume and thickness. Online buy: Chantecallie Faux Cils Mascara, £35. A favourite of mine, this mascara is like applying false eyelashes without feeling weighed down. The seaweed extract adds elasticity and avoids the nasty cakey result from other clumpy mascaras.

4. Concealer

Decide what kind of coverage you would like. For full coverage try Hourglass Hidden Corrective Concealer £23. The vitamin E enriched formula is moisturising and protects against damaging environmental pollutants. The concealer is creamy yet weightless, it is ideal for those who want heavier coverage to camouflage visible dark circles. The multi-purpose concealer can also be used for blemishes, hyper-pigmentation, and acne scars. For a more illuminating concealer Nars Radiant Concealer £22, is a cult buy. The formula has light diffusing technology to obscure signs of fatigue. One of the best beauty tips is to set with a loose powder to avoid creasing. Online buy: Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage. This powder uses hyaluronic acid and light reflecting pigments, it will also add a touch of radiance.

5. Highlight

The last step for this "how to get bright eyes" guide is one of the best beauty and makeup tips, it is of course to illuminate. Buy Online: A complexion enhancer like Benefit High Beam Luminescent £19.50, will give you a radiant glow. Apply Benefit High Beam sparingly on your brow bone and just above the crease of your eyelid. Apply through the middle of your eyelid to give the illusion of larger more awake eyes, this will finish off your zombie-to-human transformation. Benefit High Beam can also be used on the jawline, bridge of the nose, and upper lip.
