Although I love playing around with make up, the main thing I use it for in my day to day life is to appear more awake than I really am. One of the best tips I ever got was to line my lower waterline with a light eyeliner shade. This not only makes the eyes look bigger, but it also makes them appear brighter. This post is all about the four different liners I use to wake myself up!
This was the first nude liner I ever bought, and it’s still one of my favorites. This is a super cheap option, and the pencil is very long so it lasts forever. My only issue with this product is it tugs a little because it is a wooden pencil. The color matches my skin tone really nicely, especially when I’m tanner.
This is my all time favorite eye brightener! The Colourpop liners are so creamy and they last forever on the waterline. The color is a perfectly balanced nude that makes my eyes look wide and awake.
White is a pretty stark color to wear on the lash line, but nothing makes my eyes look bigger or brighter. I prefer to wear this when I know I’m going to be photographed because it looks really nice in pictures. This is very pigmented though, so use a light hand otherwise it looks kind of odd.
I mostly use this shade on my inner corners to brighten that area up. I don’t like using it on my lower lash line because it is shimmering and that can look a little weird. This also looks really nice blended out under the brow bone.
