Looked up.(btw I would prefer ´finally ´ to ´eventually ´ because eventually would be better with past simple). ´Perked up ´ also.

I agree with Lynne that "looked up" is the correct choice, and that "finally" would be better, but I definitely don ´t like the sentence, using the present perfect followed by the simple past. It is also unusual to use "looked up" with the present perfect. The present perfect continuous is much more common with it. This is not a well-written sentence.
