Julianne Hough’s big blue eyes always look flawless, and now her makeup artist is revealing his tricks for making her look awake and gorgeous, no matter how much sleep she got the night before.
Looking awake and bright eyed can be a challenge after a late night or an early morning, but Julianne Hough‘s makeup artist is sharing his 8 tips on looking hot without the glam squad!
“[Jules] tells me that some of you have inquired how to achieve that sunny “wide awake eyes” look. Here are some of my favorite tips and techniques:
Start with a primer or base to even out the skin tone on the lid and under-eye area, especially if red or discolored. This will give you the perfect base to grab ahold of powdered shadows and help them stay in place all day long. I really like the Eye Silks from Beauty by Piret.
My favorite brand of eye drops is Rohto. Use these to help brighten the whites of your eyes.”

“3. Define Brows
Focus on shape and appropriate intensity for your hair color. The impact of a well-structured brow cannot be underestimated. Not only do the brows frame your eyes, they are the single most expressive feature of the face. I love the Precision Brow Pencil by Kevyn Aucoin (Ash Blond is fairly universal).
Using a champagne gold shadow, highlight under brow arch, center of lid and inner corner “V” and blend. This will really pop the eyes out and widen them — especially if they are deeper set.
5. Line and Elongate
Apply a thin liner right into the depth of the lash line with a well-sharpened black or dark brown kohl pencil and give a slight feline flick at the ends to create an elongated, lifted, doe-eyed effect.”
“6. Maximize Openness
Apply a nude water resistant pencil to the lower waterline to brighten and further reduce redness. My favorite is Merle Norman’s Inner Eyeliner in Nude. It is water resistant and long wearing — perfect for the inner rim of the lids.
7. Curl and Coat
Curl lashes to get that elongated extended lash look, making the eyes appear wider and brighter. Apply 2-3 coats of a lash separating, defining and lengthening mascara to create separation and definition, pushing lashes upward and outward from root to tip. A brilliant mascara is Benefit’s They’re Real! in Jet Black.”
“8. Conceal and Brighten
Use concealer in the under eye area if you have darker or discolored under eyes to neutralize & brighten.”
