How To Brighten Your Eyes With Highlighter

After a sleepless night, a cup of coffee can certainly do wonders in making you feel awake  at least ​​on the inside — but when it comes to your appearance, that’s a whole different story. Cold therapy and concealer can reduce puffiness and diffuse darkness, but to truly make your eyes look bright and rested, there’s a product already in your makeup bag that’s up for the challenge: highlighter.

Below, Lena Herrmann, Rose Inc's own Senior Creative Designer and Editor, follows a step-by-step tutorial from makeup artist Rachel Duncan to brighten her eyes with just highlighter. Pro tip: Be sure select an eye-safe formula. Lena selected Rose Inc’s Solar Radiance Hydrating Cream Highlighter in Brilliant and Number 1 Brush.

“The shimmer in the highlighter will reflect light and make the eyes pop.”

Step 3: Highlight the Brow Bone

Adding highlight to the brow bone makes a significant impact on the overall makeup look.

“It lifts the brows while also giving them a cleaner, more defined look,” Duncan says. To achieve this look, “draw a thin line underneath the brow,” she says. “Trace from the first brow hair to the tail, then use your finger to gently smudge it out.” While a highlighter with sparkle works great for a glossy lid look, Duncan recommends using a highlighter with a creamy finish that doesn’t have any sparkle for this highlighter placement. Now gently buff away any hard lines.
