Here are 5 Beauty TIPs to help achieve brighter looking eyes!
1. Mascara. Oh what a difference it makes! If you don’t have time for full makeup, I find that a couple of coats (even just one) will make your eyes pop. For greater impact, use an eyelash curler! It opens up your eyes and makes them look brighter!
*If your mascara begins to dry out before its time to replace it, simply add a couple of drops of optical saline solution into the tube and swirl to give it a stir. Try not to pump the wand into the tube. This forces air into the tube causing your mascara to dry out faster.
2. To prevent lower eyeliner from smudging downward, apply a line of pressed powder just below your liner. Then blend the bottom edge of powder. This should help your liner stay in place and look fresh! Smudged eyeliner midday can easily make eyes look worn and tired, like you’ve been rubbing them.
3. Coconut Oil is an excellent makeup remover! It will remove eyeliner, waterproof mascara and brow pencil! Gently rub in a tiny amount with clean fingers. Use a soft cloth to wipe away. Not only does it remove the makeup, but also works as a great overnight moisturizer! Dry skin around your eyes can make them look dull and tired.
4. – Wake up tired looking eyes with these two tricks – First, line your inner, lower lid with a white eye pencil. It immediately brightens up your eyes. Next, dab a shimmery white(or tinted pink) shadow on the inner corners of your eyes. Your eyes will look brighter and much more wide awake!
5. – Dark circles under the eyes? Choose a concealer color that will cancel them out.
Bluish-Purple Circles – Peachy or Yellow Based Concealer
Dark Blue Circles – Orange Based Concealer
Purple Circles – Yellow Based Concealer
Pinkish Circles and Blemishes – Green Concealer
If you just want to use a concealer and don’t need color correction, use a shade of concealer 1-2 shades lighter than your foundation/skin tone.
Use a concealer or foundation brush to apply and dab it on for best results. Be sure to include around the inner portion of your eye near the bridge of your nose. Blend lower “line” with ring finger. Then apply your foundation, as usual.
