Bigger eyes in 3 mins.

Lets face it. Most of us wake up in the morning looking like we had wayy too much fun last night all the time. :)

And i personally, while i pride myself in putting in some effort to look good for work, curse as i realize my eyes still look asleep.

So this post is for the practical fashionista, such as myself. Who cannot bare to wake up earlier, to put on make up. This is a quick fix to make eyes look bigger and brighter in under 3 mins.

Fool Proof. (morning coffee not needed for execution)

Step 1.

Lightly fill in your eyebrows to make them look groomed. Remember i said lightly. If not, please see below for effect.

No. You are not on the runway. You are walking amongst normal people who will stare at your if your eyebrows look like this on a normal occasion.

yes. Simple and well grommed. Just the right amount of coloring.

Step 2.

Use your finger and dust on skin coloured eyeshadow lightly on your entire eyelid. The shadow should not extend beyond your eye lid.

Step 3.

Use a lighter, neutral shade eye pencil and draw a thin line along your upper eyelid and lower. This pencil shade should be a few shades lighter than your skin tone. Some people recommend white eye liners, but I tend to prefer skin coloured as it gives the most natural effect.

This really opens up your eyes.

Step 4.

Use very dark coloured mascara, which gives volume and length. This is the final trick that pulls everything together.

And all that should take you less than 3 mins, once you get the hang of everything. I take 2 mins 28 seconds. ;)

So i get to hit the snooze button one extra time and still manage to look awake in the morning!
