Make-up Monday | Bigger/Bright Eyes

Hey Beauties...
As all you fellow mummies may know, its tiring work looking after a little person and not to mention the sleepless nights, I hate to tell you it still happens at nearly 3 years old! So we obviously end up looking a little bit dull and tired around the eyes, and the gloomy Autumn/Winter weather doesn't help. My Cousin gave birth to twin boys a little over 3 months ago and asked me to do a make-up look on making your eyes look bigger and more awake, so this is a look I have recently been using and loving. Hope you enjoy.

So to start with I applied my moisturiser and bb cream like I usually do and for concealer I used Rimmel Wake Me Up Concealer in Classic Beige to hide my dark circles.

Now for the most important part. To start with I used Rimmel Scandaleyes Khole Pencil in Nude to line my lower water line and the outer corners of my upper waterline which instantly makes the eyes appear wider and more alert, then for the lids I used Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vintage Blush which is a nice subtle pink just giving the eye lids a touch of colour.  I also used Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencil in Vanilla Sky a gorgeous frosty white colour which really does brighten up the eyes when applied to the tear ducts of the eyes (inner corners)
To finish the eyes I applied Max Factors Eye Brightening Mascara for Brown Eyes to really open up the eyes and give a nice natural look.
For a finishing touch and to complete the look I used Garnier Caffeine Anti-dark Circles Roll On in Light just to really wake my eyes up and make me feel aswell as look more alive.

For my American readers I have found out that Max Factor is in fact the same as Cover Girl so if you are wanting the eye brighting mascara try Cover Girl Exact Eyelights Eye-Brightening Mascara and the Collection Work The Colour Eyeshadow Pencils would probably match best with NYX jumbo pencils, although I am not 100% on that.

If you would like to know any other dupes of English products for you girlies in America please let me know and I will hunt them down for you.
