Bleached brows are striking and chic, but if you’re blessed with a full, bushy, Cara Delevingne-worthy pair, you might not be willing to lighten them.

Pretend like you’re rested.Five hours of sleep is totally not preferred or ideal, but your schedule might disagree with you. To brighten up your face, dab concealer at the inner corners of your eyes and above the cupid’s bow of your lips, and blend. You’ll instantly look awake.

It’ll be your perfect shade, no matter what.
