We’ve all had those days when we’re exhausted but don’t want to look like we’ve been up all night. Whether you’ve had a late night studying or were out partying with friends, you can fool everyone with these tips:
- One thing you can do is make sure you use a highlighting concealer under your eyes to brighten up the under eyes and conceal any dark circles you may have.
- Another way to appear more awake is to curl your eyelashes and apply some mascara to your upper and lower lashes. Curling your lashes opens up the eye. You can even take it a step further and apply some false lashes which will make your eyes appear larger and more awake.
- Also, you can line your waterline with a cream colored pencil or a shimmery champagne colored one. You’d probably want to avoid black liner on the waterline just because it can tend to close up the eyes and make them appear smaller.
- Another tip is to add a shimmery eyeshadow to the inner corners of your eyes. This highlights the area and brings light into your eyes.
- You can also line your upper lash line. This will make your eyes appear larger.
In the picture below I’ve utilized the tips I’ve mentioned. As you can see I appear wide awake and bright eyed.

At first glance De Prettilicious Lashes reminded me of the bulk false lashes that come in packs of 10 on Ebay. I’ve tried those and found them to be extremely hard to work with and cheaply made. To my surprise, however, these turned out to be great. They are made of high quality synthetic hair, are handmade, and really natural looking. Even though these lashes are synthetic they look and feel like human hair lashes. I love the fact that they have very thin bands because it makes them reallly easy to apply and blend with your natural lashes. I also like how the pack of lashes comes with 10 different styles. Included are a good mix of dramatic, as well as more natural looking lashes.
The only downfall is that there are no printed style names on the package. To figure the names out you have to visit @deprettilicious on Instagram. Having printed names would be convenient so people could tell others what style they’re wearing.
De Prettilicious Lashes come in a pack of 10 and retail for around $13 on Amazon.com. In my opinion, that price is a steal since each pair equates to about $1.30 each and basic good quality lashes go for around $4 to $6. The direct link to purchase them is http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00J1MYWES.
I’m excited to let you all know that one of my favorite lash companies is releasing two new collections!
