Eyebrows are the frames of our eyes. The higher the eyebrows, the more lifted our eyes look. This 24-Hour Brow Setter from Benefit Cosmetics gives the eyes a lamented look. The clear gel easily shapes the brows. Use the silicone comb to brush the brows up and lay them down on the flat side of the product.

Concealer isn’t just used for hiding discoloration on the skin, it can also give an instant lift. This long-lasting concealer from Rimmel London has high pigment with an ultra-blendable formula. The large soft touch wand makes it easy to use and map out the face. Using one shade lighter than your regular concealer, apply the product on the inner corners of the eye, the outer corners towards the brow, the bridge of the nose, under the eyebrows, by the cheek contour, forehead and chin. Blend it out with a sponge to brighten the face.

We love liquid eyeliner because you can really manipulate the way your eye looks. The cat eye makeup look can elongate and lift your eyes. This eyeliner from Kylie Cosmetics has an ultra-fine brush tip that gives you incredible precision and control. Use small strokes to apply close to the lash line in the inner corners of the eyes and stop before you reach your pupil. Apply to the outer corners towards the top of your eyebrows.

Using blush will not only add some colour and brightness to the skin, but it can give the face a little lift as well. Focus on applying the product to the high points of the cheek and the side of your temples. This multi-stick blush has a soft, natural finish that helps to hydrate the skin. Apply it right on the face using your fingers, blush or sponge.
