Bright Eye Beauty

Your eyes say it all. By keeping your peepers bright and alert you'll be able to add on any sexy, alluring look of your choosing.

No matter how you glam up your eyes-whether it be a smoky eye complete with tons of smudgey black liner or an au natural palette of earthy neutral shadows the real key to achieving a complete look is by sporting a pair of healthy looking eyes. No matter how much glittery goodness you sprinkle on your lids, nothing screams tired, hungover or harboring a cold more than a pair of red, puffy eyes. If you feel like you’re a tissue box away from a full on allergy attack, chances are you look like you are too. That’s not so hot…or conducive with maintaining a smoldering aloof stare while out at your fav. hot spot –checking out the man meat. It doesn’t seem to matter what the reason is for your watery aggravated eyes because you somehow always end up looking like the needy, high maintenance chick rather than the sophisticated, chic lady who just happens to look like she’s crying because of allergies. Fear not! No matter what the reason is- you, your eyes and as a result your whole face can be saved by a few simple solutions.

In order to get the whites of your eyes looking bright, alert and well…white, use eye drops to get rid of redness and alleviate the itchy sensation that makes rubbing your eyes feel so good and tempting.

Try Visine Totality Multi-Symptom Relief ($5.99, Use 1-2 drops up to 4 times a day and notice how much less dry, itchy and aggravated your eyes feel. These drops are also ideal to use before getting ready to go out for the evening. Your makeup will pop when painted against a white contrasting backdrop otherwise known as the sclera. This new solution (compared to the company’s older original formula) does an effective job of protecting your eyes against dust and irritants all day long.

To depuff the eyes and reduce dark circles try Garnier Nutritioniste Skin Renew Anti-Puff Eye Roller ($13, Drugstores). The slender green tube contains caffeine and Vitamin B5 to works its magic. Furthermore the rolling ball gently massages the skin and feels moisturizing and cooling on the skin. It’s great to use under your eye makeup and feels light and hydrating! It’ll feel like you’re using chilled caffeinated tea bags without the time and effort.

To remove makeup and sooth the eyes, try Visine Total Eye Soothing Wipes ($6.99, Walgreens). They feels soft and gentle and are a great alternative to rubbing your eyes. Experts say that rubbing your eyes can wrinkle the sensitive skin around and more importantly can actually scratch your retina. Using the wipes on your eyes when they get super itchy will alleviate the itchy sensation and calm down the redness. If the alternative is rubbing them, this tub is a must-have.
