Add Sparkle
Lively, sparkling eyes are Taylor Swift’s signature look so copy this A lister and give tired eyes an instant lift by adding sparkle. According to make-up artist Lizzie Court, shimmering make up instantly refreshes your look. “Dab a touch of shimmer cream in the hollow of your eyes in the inner corners using a cotton bud to blend. Darker skin tones should go for a warm golden colour such as BECCA Shimmering Skin Perfector in Gold (£32.70 available from Beauty Expert). Paler skin tones should opt for silvery shades or a pearlescent hue, such as Maybelline’s Dream Mousse Shimmer in Porcelain (£5.99)”. To really give tired eyes a real wake-up try sparkle eye drops, Optrex Eyedew really does brighten blurry eyes (£4.49 available at Boots.com).

Hollywood Style
Try an old Hollywood trick for bright eyes; Lizzie Court says, “Use a nude coloured eye pencil to line the inside rim of your lower lid. This will mask any redness and brighten eyes instantly. Try Mac’s Eye Kohl Pencil (£12.50).”  Invest in a mascara that really separates and defines each lash, such as Clinique’s High Impact Mascara (£14.50) which will give eyes a more open appearance.

Fresh Flush
Make sure you dab your cheeks with a popping crème blush, and your whole face will look instantly awake! A light layer of cream blush will melt on to skin and appear to look natural rather than layering a pastel shade. Try Laura Mecier’s Crème Cheek Colour, to apply Lizzie suggests “using your fingers lightly rub the cream blush on the highest point of the apples of your cheek. This will create a transparent flush like when you pinch your cheeks.”
