Beginner: Brighten eyesWhen you look like you only slept 20 minutes last night, the oldest trick in the book to appear awake and bright-eyed is to apply a beige-colored eyeliner to your lower inner rim (aka your waterline). "It helps counteract tired, red eyes," says Chang-Babaian, "and makes your eyes look larger." With your index finger, gently pull down your lower lid to expose your inner rim. Then with your pencil, gently go over your waterline, taking care to not poke yourself in the eye. Try Tarte EmphasEYES Inner Rim Brightener, $18.
