Since eyes are the window to our soul, they outwardly reveal much about what’s going on inwardly. Whether it’s using the latest and greatest eye cream with retinol, knowing how to use eye makeup to minimize eyes that are deep set, needing to drink more water and getting more sleep, there are tricks anyone can use to enhance their pretty peepers. When engaging in conversation, a person’s passion becomes very obvious with expression from their eyes. Your eyes often articulate what your words can’t.
Read on to find out secrets the stars use to brighten their pooped out peepers.
For starters, take note of your eye shape. Are they close set, deep set, or wide set? Do you have a hooded lid? Are the whites of the eye more yellow or even red from obvious veins? Do you have noticeable crows feet at the corner, bags underneath or prominent dark circles? Any of these issues are ones that can be improved by monitoring amounts of product intake, utilizing proper application, and overall product use.
Let’s talk about the items/products you’re ingesting. Truly, drinking more water can help detoxify and enhance the liver which is often the cause of yellow, dark, dull or red eyes. Drinking too much alcohol, or not enough fruits and veggies is another reason they are not bright! Avoid sugar to further help the liver do its job. Using eye drops can help lubricate and soothe tired, stressed eyes. Also avoid areas of smoke as this can irritate and dry out the eye area and make them pale. To make the white’s of eyes look brighter through product application, use a blue liner on the top and bottom lid and add silver or a white shimmer to the lid. Lastly, a home remedy of using pure, fresh, lemon juice on a cotton ball for an antioxidant 1-2 times a week will help brighten the skin.
One of my most asked questions as an image consultant is how to make eyes “pop”. These steps will ensure that happens for you.
If the chamomile tea bag or cucumber slices don’t work, make sure to get nine hours of sleep and see if that helps! Open those eyes to more meaningful conversation and appear more bright eyed and bushy tailed this year. Here’s to peepers that are worth keeping.
