Feeling sleepy? This easy tutorial will help you fake a full eight hours

One of the most common beauty concerns out there is the look of being too tired. When you don't get enough sleep, your skin can appear dull, your hair lank, and, most noticeably, your eyes red and puffy. While we can't always fix the cause of our sleep deprivation, we can do something to treat the superficial symptoms. That's where cleverly applied makeup comes into play.
By using certain subtle tricks, you can easily create the illusion of a well-rested eye. This look isn't about piling on tons of makeup to disguise your fatigue -- rather, it's about using the right products to easily enhance even the bleariest eyes. By following this tutorial, you can happily avoid the dreaded "you look tired" comments -- for good.

Instructions
1. A groomed brow will help add structure to your face, lifting your look and ensuring you appear polished and alert. Use a natural looking brow gel and an angled brush, and comb through with a spoolie to ensure a seamless finish.
2. Take a warm, soft brown eyeshadow - we used the shade Downright from the Colourpop Give It To Me Straight Palette - on a small fluffy brush. Work this color into the eyelid crease to add depth.
3. Take a pale, shimmery eyeshadow shade, like Upfront from the same same palette as step 2, using a flat brush. Apply this color across the inner portion of your mobile lid, focusing most intensely on your inner corner. This will bring light to the area.
4. Take a white kohl eyeliner pencil and line your lower waterline. This will cancel out any redness and make your eyes look bright and awake.
5. Curl your lashes to open up your eyes, then apply a coat of black mascara.
7. Finish the look with a slick of nude lip gloss, which will draw attention to your lips and make them appear fuller without looking too obvious.
