Wake Up Call: 4 Beauty Products That Are Giving My Eyes LIFE Right Now!

I'm so blessed that both of my kids are pretty great sleepers. There are nights when we struggle to get them to actually go to bed, but once they're out, they're down for a good 12 hours straight! Of course, we go through phases once in a while where the kids have rough and restless nights, so on top of me being a natural night owl (and staying up late working on the blog!), I've had to figure out an eye routine that makes my eyes look bright and bushy-tailed--even if I'm not.

The best part is that all of these products are totally affordable! Here are the items I've been swearing by lately:

Neutrogena Hydro Boost Eye Gel // This is a great under-eye moisturizer for daily use! I thankfully don't have a lot of issues with puffiness or dark circles, but I do notice that my under eye area tends to look sallow when it's not well hydrated. This little tube has been a great foundation for fresh looking eyes on early mornings--having great skin always makes the makeup process easier!

Maybelline Lash Stiletto Mascara // The funny thing about this mascara is that I used it for yeeears, fell out of routine with it when trying new and different brands, randomly came back to it and realized it is THE best mascara I have ever used! I'm on at least my 7th tube over the course of a few years and just can't live without it. My lashes are stick straight and will NOT stay curled without this mascara in the waterproof formula. This is my number one way to wake up my eyes when I'm looking tired. It's amazing what a long lash can do for a gal! I like to layer this one with a volumizing mascara like L'Oreal Lash Paradise for maximum effect.

Pixi Eye Bright Liner // I think we tend to forget about the effect of a nude liner! It creates a clean slate between your bottom lashes and the whites of your eyes, opening the eye and creating a more "wide-eyed" effect! Don't overdue it here; just a quick swipe or two is plenty (and make sure it's nude, not white! White is too harsh and can look costumey)!

Too Faced Natural Eyes Palette // While this palette is my ride-or-die for travel and all my daily makeup looks, I'm actually including it in this list for one shade only: Silk Teddy. It's the prettiest shimmery shade for an inner corner or brow bone highlight and it lasts ALL. Day. Long. Sometimes I even use it as a cheekbone highlight because it's just SO good! If you don't want to splurge on a whole palette just for a single shade, use your regular highlight product to add a splash of shine to the inner corner of your eyes and your brow bone. It will instantly light up your eye area and really wake up your whole face!


Nothing wakes up your face quite like bright, beautiful eyes! Do you have any eye products that you swear by on those rough start mornings? How do you overcome tired eyes? Share your tips with me in the comments!
