When the skin under your eyes is dark due to fatigue, you can trick people into thinking you got plenty of sleep last night. Smooth a tiny dab of a peachy pink concealer into the inner corners of the area under your eyes. This will help hide dark shadows and help you look wide awake and bright eyed.
3. Exfoliate when You Wake up
Experts say that a quick exfoliation in the morning can get rid of all the dry, dead skin that’s clogging up your pores.

Use an eye cream that contains the ingredient and it will plump sallow skin and wake up your eyes so that you look like you slept eight hours, even when you didn’t.
6. It’s as Simple as Curling Your Lashes
If you have never curled your lashes before, now is the time to start doing just that. This simple step helps open up your eyes and give you the wide awake look you crave. Pinch your lashes between the curler twice, once at the lash line and once closer to the ends. Then apply a couple of coats of mascara and you’re good to go.
7. Go with Bright, Bold Lips as a Distraction
Still looking a little sleepy? Try wearing a bright, bold color on your lips. This draws the attention away from your tired eyes and puts it on your lovely kisser. Use a color that enhances your complexion and top it with a bit of sheer gloss to give you the most perfect shine.
