Many people consider their eyes to best their best facial feature. But sometimes our everyday lives can make them look dull and tired.
Tired eyes can make you look unhealthy and over time, this can cause premature ageing making you look older than you actually are. So if your eyes are not looking as vibrant as they should be, here are some quick and easy remedies you can try to make them stand out.
Intensify your eyeshadow
Whether you’re using a shimmering nude or a bright, bold colour, your eyeshadow can transform your look in an instant. To make your chosen colour as vibrant as possible, there are two things you can do. An eye primer is a product that smooths the surface of your eyelid and intensifies the colour of your eyeshadow. It will also keep your eyeshadow in place throughout your day so there’s no need to reapply. The other trick you can try is using a damp, warm makeup brush to apply your shadow. This will amp up the colour and give it a dewy effect. Just don’t use too much water on your brush and always choose an eyeshadow that suits your eye colour.
Look after your eyes
We all take our eyes for granted but it’s important that we give them some regular TLC. To do this, you can try this skin smoothing eye mask or apply a moisturising eye cream each night. It’s also wise to let them rest so make sure you get at least eight hours sleep every night. If you often wake up with puffy eyes, you could try a firming eye gel that will soothe and help reduce the puffiness. Or for a real homemade remedy you can use cold tea bags or ice cubes. They can assist you in getting rid of puffiness and reduce dark circles under your eyes. These techniques will help your eyes look healthy and youthful and should be done often for the best results.
Don’t forget to brush
Your eyelashes and eyebrows should be delicately brushed each day, even when you aren’t wearing makeup. Use a clean mascara wand and use an upward brushing motion from root to tip. This will untangle your lashes and give your brows a stronger shape. You’ll instantly create a wider eyed look as you have elongated your eye area and make your eyelashes look longer. Brushing your eyebrows in particular could change the entire shape of your face, so don’t forget to do it.
Use two shades of mascara
Mascara is a girl's best tool for creating long and fuller looking lashes. But often we only stick to one shade. Using two different colours can create a dramatic effect and make your eyes look bigger. Apply a brown mascara on your lower lashes and black mascara on your top lashes for an instant eye-opening trick.
As you can see, there are plenty of quick and simple ways to re-energise your eyes and make them look better than ever. So use these tricks and get eyes that POP every single day.
