Allergies, long hours at the computer, in front of a television, sleepless nights – they can all leave us looking pretty tired. Besides Visine and concealer, there are some tricks to fake looking awake , one of which is using light blue eyeliner! Most people use white, nude, peach or even light pink liner. But I really like a light blue liner in the waterline – it really helps counteract redness and makes the whites of the eyes look brighter.

Another AMAZING product for this  purpose is these Collyre Eye drops. These are especially fantastic if you know you’re having your picture taken, or if you’re going to be in front of bright lights ( like on stage for a performance etc). I will post a before and after with these drops for you sometime soon. In the meantime here are my tips on using blue liner.

My other favourite liners for this purpose are  the Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof Kohl Eyeliner in  Nude and Annabelle Kohl Liner in Milky Way.
