Who doesn’t want to have a bright, open face this summer? Fresh eyes are a big part of this look as they lighten it all up. Here’s how to refresh your eyes when sleepless nights, stressful days and puffy bags have got you down:
It’s a necessity for tackling those bags and dark circles. If you have those under control then you won’t have to use too much make-up on your eye area. Plus, eye cream does wonders in the long run for preventing wrinkles and sagging, as well as soothing sensitive skin. We recommend Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector (R415).
Remember, to apply your concealer after your foundation for better coverage. Also, opt for a dabbing motion when applying and blending your concealer with your ring finger or an appropriate brush. We recommend Smashbox High Definition Concealer (R225).
By applying this shade of eyeliner to your upper and lower waterlines, you open up the eyes. Nude is a lovelier option than white as it’s not as stark in contrast, which creates a more natural look. We recommend Smashbox Always Sharp Waterproof Kohl Liner in Bare (R235).
Just a few slicks of the right wand will open up your eyes that much more. A good tip is to apply your mascara combing towards the outside corner of your eye. We recommend Estée Lauder Sumptuous Waterproof Bold Volume Lifting Mascara (R325).
