How we wake is oh so important. Depending on which stage of the REM cycle we're in when the alarm goes off, we can either wake up feeling sprightly and energized or bogged down and confused, still half-living out the dream we were having.
On mornings when we're not so lucky with the terms of our waking, we can always take recourse to some swift, corrective action with our makeup.
Cosmopolitan.com recommends using blue mascara to make the whites of your eyes appear brighter and ultimately help mask the appearance of a tired-looking gaze.
"When you paint your lashes a sapphire shade, they reflect off of your eyes and give them an almost-glow," the news source suggests. "The effect is subtle, but you'll be able to see the hint of blue when you're outside - it's very cool."
Fortunately, you don't have to stop there. Using blinc Mascara in blue will not only provide you with all the eye-opening benefits mentioned above, but its unique water-resistant formula will resist flaking, running and smudging throughout the day, which means you're that much more protected from being a tired-looking mess.
