Emmy Awards 2013: The Celebs’ Instant Eye-Brightening Trick!

The Emmy Awards were the talk of LA (and let’s face it, the rest of the world) last night, so it’s no wonder we spent all morning checking out the hottest looks from the red carpet.

We spied January Jones and Julianne Hough working one of our favourite beauty tricks, the metallic eye. Hold off before you go slapping on the silver shadow – the secret to pulling off this look is to keep the iridescent tones towards the inner corners to instantly brighten up and enhance your peepers.

When choosing your silver eye accent, go for a loose pigment rather than cream shadow – it’s easier to pat on exactly where you want it, and you can blend it out afterwards for a subtle finish. MAC Pigment in Frozen White, £17, is a favourite on the Look beauty desk because once on, it stays put all night.

Well, now you know our secret for faking bright eyes – you’re welcome!
