Wake up Eyes Makeup Look

This was the look I posted in my Wake up Makeup Series as it is such an amazing way to open up tired eyes. Nothing much done here but I did use a bit of products that awakens the eyes and in the inner corners I have used an orangey-peachy shimmery eyeshadow to contrast the bluish purple under eye color in inner corners.

Rest is all "brightening" soft shimmers and nothing chunky.


I used Benefit Lemonaid Eye lid correcting primer as a concealer. The second dupe to it could be MAC's Soft Ochre.
I used Stila "Wheat" which is shimmery soft beige all over the lid.; the dupe could be MAC eyeshadow in Ricepaper or Goldmine if you like. On the lower lid I have used MAC's All that Glitters as I wanted a bit of smoky appearance and some color for definition. On the outer corners and the crease goes MAC's Brown down with an angular liner/brow brush which is then smudged with a small flat eyeshadow brush and hazed outwards. On the brow bone as a highlighter I used Shiseido's Accentuating Stick in S3 Glistening Flush. I skipped the liner to create a wide eyed look and applied 2-3 layers of Clinique High Impact Curling Mascara in black to the top and bottom lashes. Since it curls lashes on its own I didn't have to use lash curler.


To prep the under eye skin I used MAC's Moisture Cover concealer in Yellow tones from the limited Mickey Contractor collection with little tapping motions and then layered Clinique's All About Eyes concealer in 05 shade over it and then the rest of the under eye area with  a concealer brush. I love Clinique's Concealer brush for its precise application and it feels like nothing during concealer application.

For blush opt for a bit warmer color like apricot or a bright peach which is flattering on cheeks.

For lips, opt for lipgloss to get that brighter smile. Shimmers are good as well as shines, opt for something that is suitable according to the occasion.

Hope you find this article amusing.

Till then,
