As we age, our body cannot produce the collagen as readily and we succumb to wrinkles and fine lines. Insert sigh here. Our eyes tend to appear smaller and droopier because of this unfortunate happening. Here are some ways on how to make your eyes look bigger and pop!
Under eye pads are a great little boost of vitamins and moisture to wear while drinking coffee or getting dressed before makeup time. They help plump up skin so fine lines, puffiness, and under-eye darkness is reduced.
Burt’s Bees Rejuvenating Eye Masks single use are great all natural little bursts of goodness for your under eyes.
Make sure to lighten up under your eyes and in the inner corners too. Whenever there are shadows or darker skin tone under your eyes, it will give them the appearance of being sunken in and smaller. When you get a good concealer, make sure you get those inside corners brightened up to reduce shadows and lighten underneath your eyes.
LimeLife By Alcone’s Complete Concealer is amazing! It is so pigmented that people use it to cover tattoos. It also mimics skin beautifully as well so a little goes a long way.
Use a light beige or white pencil on your lower waterline. It really makes your eyes pop and opens them up.
Stila Smudge Stick Waterproof Eye Liner in color “Alpine” will stay even longer in the waterline because it is waterproof.
Curl those lashes! When curling, don’t use too much pressure as it can pull out your lashes and damage your roots. Start at the roots and apply a small amount of pressure, and count to 5. Then move to the middle and repeat and then the end. That way your lashes are curled through and have a beautiful arc before applying mascara.
Snagging a good lengthening mascara will do wonders for upper and lower lashes. But be warned…and only do one coat or maybe two. When the mascara is layered too much it can look chunky and bulky, closing off the eye. When you can see those clean, beautiful individual lashes it helps so much!
Too Faced “Better Than Sex” Mascara is my go-to fiber mascara. It lengthens while still keeping lashes looking natural and non-clumpy!
Pluck those crazy strays and draw those brows in. Do a light fill in of your brows and draw them out longer if you need to. When they are more prominent and cleaned up, they frame your face better and open up the upper lid so you can focus on more important things like what eyeshadow you want in your crease and living your best life!
Tweezerman Slant Tweezers are the royalty of plucking and brow-tweezing!
