Tweezing a higher arch into your brows is one way to wake up sleepy looking eyes. Caution, just don’t tweeze too high or you’ll look permanently surprised! For a less permanent solution, applying even a few fake lashes can work, too.
Using white eyeliner is another quick trick for an eye-opening effect. Put it on along the "waterline" of the eye, just inside the lower lashes. New York celebrity makeup artist Lana G., whose clients include actress Sarah Jessica Parker, advises using a white kohl liner. The soft pencil glides on more easily than others.
