Crow’s feet, bags and sags don’t stand a chance against this easy five step plan for youthful, gorgeous eyes!
Didn’t get enough sleep? Make you eyes look brighter with this makeup trick: First, glide a shimmery, nude-colored shadow with a creamy consistency (such as Cliniques Touch Base for Eyes in Canvas Light – 100% Pure fruit Pigmented Satin Eye Shadow in Belize over your lids, brow bones and inner corners. Slightly extend the color around the tear ducts: this neurtralizes dark shadows near your nose. Then, to counteract any redness and visually brighten the whites of your eyes, line the inner rims with a nude liner (such as Tarte emphasEYES inner Rim Brightener in nude).
Lift your Lids!
Eyes need a little lift? Luckily, you can combat subtle sagging in two steps: Firs, visually lift by sweeping a matte shadow just above your natural crease. Use a pointed eye-shadow brush and sweep on the shadow brush and sweep on the shadow back and forth in a half circle; it’s the same movement a windshield wiper makes. Then, use a soft charcoal gray, violet or brown liner to define your upper lash line. Follow the lash line starting at the outer corner, slightly tweak the liner upward to create a slight lift!
Enhance your lashes!
Youthful looking lashes have two hallmarks: fullness and extra density at the outer corners. Amp up your lashes by using a volumizing mascara infused with collagen or keratin (such as Rimmel London Scandal Eyes Mascara). The collagen and keratin adds bulk, making lashes appear significantly thicker. after you coat your lashes, hold the mascara wand vertically and give you outer corner lashes a few extra strokes. Those extended outer lashes open up your eyes, giving them an alluring doe-eye shape.
Erase Crow’s Feet!
Make those little lines around you eyes disappear by “filling them in with primer!” Smooth an eye shadow primer (such as Too faced Shadow Insurance over the lines, then gently tap your concealer over the primer. This primer fills in the wrinkles, leaving the skin around your eyes loooking smooth and youthful in a matter of seconds!
Which wonder ingredient tackles puffy eyes? Caffeine! It’s a nautral anti-inflammatory that reduces water retention, so the skin under your eyes is smoother. And applying a caffenine enriched eye cream (such as 100% Pure Organic Coffee Bean Caffeine Eye Cream) has a second benefit: it constricts blood vessels, reducing the primary casue of dark circles!
