Depending on the shape and or size of your eyes, it can be tough to get them to look bright, open, and awake (especially at the end of a long workweek). Brightening concealers can help, as can a more defined brow — but for serious eye-lifting powers, says Amy Nadine of The Beauty Department, turn to this sneaky eye-boosting trick: criss-crossed faux lashes.
Although you can rely on a pre-made strip (Nadine loves these by MAC), the makeup artist says that you can earn extra credit by working with individual V-shaped flare lashes. Simply start at the outer corners and glue the lashes close together — you'll end up with a fat set of feathery, voluminous lashes that will give any eye shape a major boost. (The Beauty Department)
