Wake Up Tired Eyes

Red eyes can be caused by a lot of different reasons such as staying up too late studying, staying late at party, allergies, or traveling. Whatever the reason, the problem is still there—tired, red eyes. After you have tried the different cures of get-the-red-out eye drops, cold compresses held over the eyes, and soothing eye gel, then it's time for the camouflage. You can camouflage your eyes with makeup giving the illusion of wide-awake eyes in just minutes.

The goal is to neutralize the red, bloodshot eyes. If you are a warm skin tone the best way is by using golden eye shadows and liners. Cool skin tones would use eye shadows and liners that have blue undertones. By using the right color of eye shadow and liner you reduce the appearance of the redness in your eyes against the skin. This can be accomplished by using a gold-tint cover-up. When applying makeup around the eyes, start out lightly with the makeup (you can always add more later). You want your eyes to look their best, but not to stand out. When your eyes are tired and red you want to stay away from any eye color that has a pink, violet, or red base.

A great color that looks good on warm skin tones would be a champagne shadow, applied to the eyelids and to the brow bone. This will help to create the illusion of opening up your eyes. On the outside corner of your eyelid apple a golden shade of shadow or liner. On the crease of your eyelid apply a mocha-colored shadow, giving the illusion of having wide-open eyes.

On cool skin tones you will want to begin by applying a shimmering white shadow over the brow bone. Apply a very soft gray shadow to the eyelids. Using a smoky gray, line the center of your eyelids, making the eyes appear more open. You want to add black mascara next to bring out the whites of your eyes.

Now that you have taken care of your eyes, it's time to highlight another part of your face. You don't want your eyes to be the main focus for the day. Why not make your lips be your standout feature for the day?

For warm skin tones use a chocolate liner on your lips and use a tawny sunset-orange or red lipstick and then apply a light pink gloss over the top. If you are of a cool skin tone, apply a plum lip liner with a berry colored lipstick with a clear gloss to finish the look.
