You probably have heard of the famous phrase ‘your eyes are the window to the soul,’ and as a matter of fact, it’s true. Eyes are the first thing you will notice when you meet someone. Know that every eye shape and colour is beautiful in its way. It’s time you embrace it and enhance what you naturally got. If you’re struggling with improving your eyes and are trying to get them to look more attractive, this article is just what you need—ever noticed how some celebrities, models, or even your friends have dazzling eyes? Well turns out you can too. With the right products and emphasis on your eyes, you can leave everyone mesmerized.
Pigmentation, scarring, and textured eyes are pretty standard and expected for everyone. What you see on TV and the internet is all due to Photoshop, hours of makeup, and good lighting. However, suppose you are suffering from serious hyperpigmentation, an injury that may have distorted the eye area, or intense bags out of the ordinary. In that case, you can opt for eye bag surgery to restore your natural features. However, if you don’t qualify for any of the above, there are also non-invasive ways for you to make your eyes look more pretty.
How to make your eyes more attractive?
Identify Your Natural Eye Shape
The first thing you want to do is make sure you know which eye shape you are dealing with. If you’re doing something to ‘enhance’ your eyes and it’s doing the exact opposite, chances are your eye shape may be different. This will allow you to use the right tips and tricks to enhance your natural eye shape.
While every eye shape may be unique, you still may be able to relate it to some common eye shapes out there for you to find the perfect match. For instance, do you have round or almond eyes, deep-set or close-set? Are they hooded or monolid? Regardless, of what eye shape or type you have, know that every one of them is beautiful. You get to play with different styles and enhance them according to naturally made.
Find your sense of style and try to rock what works best for you, especially when playing with makeup. The same rule applies to those of you with light-coloured or dark-coloured eyes. Both are equally enhancing and charming.
De-puff with Home remedies
Puffy eyes and dark circles can be a huge bummer for some of us. It can significantly impact your confidence and make you a lot more insecure. Though it is normal for most of us, we still look for ways to reduce its appearance. Fortunately, some home remedies can help you achieve that easily. For instance, using green tea bags on your eyes can be a great way to depuff the eyes.
Cucumbers have been an all-time favorite to not only de-puff the eyes but to make them look a lot more fresh and wide awake. Additionally, using a cold steel spoon and gently pressing it against your eye can also help de-puffing. Stay consistent in these remedies to get visible differences and long-lasting results. Keep in mind while these remedies may not eliminate puffiness for good, they can improve its appearance.
Your diet also plays a factor in how your eyes look. Stay hydrated to avoid bloating and water retention and ensure you don’t go overboard with your sodium intake, leading to puffiness on your face.
EyeCare is a Must
There are so many skincare creams and products available for you to choose from. Retinol is known for smoothing out the skin under your eyes and keeping it firm, preventing saggy eye bags as you age. Additionally, using the right skincare products will be able to give your eyes the hydration they need, so they look moisturized and smooth.
Fine lines and wrinkles are a struggle we all deal with. Use the right products to smooth your eyes, even out your complexion, and eliminate hyper-pigmentation.
Making Your Eyes Attractive with Makeup:
1. Use a Hydrating Eye Primer
Before you get on to doing your makeup, always be sure to invest in a good eye primer. Eye primers not only add vibrancy to your eye shadows and make your eye looks a lot more long-wearing, but they can also fill in any crevices, giving you a smooth base for your concealer to set on.
Concealer can be your best friend, and it omits any existence of you pulling out five all-nighters in a row by covering up your eye bags. Get a concealer shade that is one shade lighter than your skin tone, and make sure you use the right undertone, so its colour corrects too. Apply a decent amount under your eyes, blend, set, and get an instant wide-awake look!
3. Curl Your Lashes
Using an eyelash curler upwards can open up your eyes and make your eyelash appear longer. You can even slightly wrap your lash curler with a hairdryer (being careful, it is not too warm to the touch) and very carefully curl your lashes. Do this before applying your mascara for your lashes to stay curled all day.
4. Apply Mascara and a White Eyeliner
Lastly, apply a light-coloured eyeliner under your eyes, disconnecting it from your top-line so your eyes look bigger. Then apply a coat (or two) of mascara depending on your preference by wiggling the wand through your lashes to ensure you have enough product, and your lashes are well separated. Avoid clumping your lashes as it can make them look heavy and less awake. Follow these cool tips and tricks to make your eyes stand out from the rest of your face. Remember to stay consistent and switch up your look whenever you feel like it. We bet you won’t be disappointed.
