Eva Mendes looked a little worse for the wear last evening at the Venice Film Festival.

The normally impeccable 35 year old actress hit the red carpet with some major under eye puffiness, exacerbated by the concealer and foundation she caked on to cover it up.

    Did you have a late night, or are you feeling (and looking) ragged after a busy day? No need to wear your exhaustion on your face. With Carmindy's five easy makeup tricks, you'll look like you got your full 8 hours of sleep -- even when you've been burning the midnight oil.

    Under Eye Concealer
    First, cover dark shadows with under eye concealer. Apply it directly to the dark spot, at the inside corner of the eyes.

    Shimmer Under Browbone
    To visually open up the eyes, slick a little highlighter on the brow bones just beneath the eye brows. This makeup artist trick draws light to the area, making your eyes look more awake.

    Shimmer At Inner Corners
    Sticking with the shimmer, now apply it to the inner corners of the eyes. Another light trick, this tactic draws light to the inside of the eye, erasing redness and making the eyes appear more open.

    Blue Eye Liner
    Now, apply a navy blue eye liner to the inner rims of the lower eye lids. Use a waterproof, pencil liner. The blue pigment makes the whites of the eyes appear clearer and whiter, and offsets any redness at the lower lids.

    Pink Blush
    Brighten the face with a dusting of pink blush high on the apples, just beneath the eyes. This will give you a fresh flushed look, like you just came in from a jog.
