8 Simple and effective tips on how to brighten up your eyes
Many people say that your eyes important feature of your face and that you can tell a lot about a person by just looking at their eyes. That being the case, you want your eyes to look bright and clear, when you go out and not to look like you just got out of bed. Whatever their shape, colour or size, all eyes can be made to look gorgeous, just read these eight ways of brightening up your eyes to find out how it’s done:
1. White eye pencil
The simplest tip on how to brighten up your eyes is to use a touch of white or nude eye pencil. You have to be quite precise though, to get the desired effect, so carefully outline only the inner corners of your eyes and your waterline with a white or flesh coloured liner, and it will bring back the brightness to your eyes easily.
2. Curl your lashes
Another simple way to wake up your eyes is to curl your lashes. Using an eyelash curler will lift your lashes up and out, helping to open up your eyes and make them look much brighter. Curl first and then apply a good coat of mascara to finish the job, then step back and admire!
3. Keep your brows shaped
Some girls look great with heavy eyebrows, but they can detract from the brightness of your eyes. To help lift your eyes avoid making your brows look heavy and dark, shape and thin your brows a bit, and see how it helps to brighten up your eyes.
4. Get a good night’s sleep
Lack of sleep can be your eyes’ worst enemy. It can redden the whites of your eyes, create puffiness and black circles under and around the eyes, and generally, the lack of good rest can leave your eyes looking dull. Sleep is important for everybody, so make sure that you are getting your eight hours’ worth, every day.
5. Hide dark circles
Dark circles make you look tired and make your eyes look dull. You can treat black circles under your eyes by placing a slice of cucumber or a slice of chilled raw potato over your eyes for a few minutes, which will cool and soothe your eyes, and you can mask the circles by using a good under eye concealer to help make your eyes look brighter.
6. Pink blush
Oddly, a dusting of pink blush on the apples of your cheeks can make your eyes sparkle. We have no idea why this works, but try it, we assure you that it does!
7. Raw egg whites
A good and quick home remedy for puffy eyes is to apply some raw egg whites directly onto the skin under your eyes and leave it on for 3-5 minutes. The egg whites will tighten your skin and the vitamin B that they contain will help promote the blood circulation around the eyes, and if the egg white is slightly cool, it will also help reduce the puffiness, increasing the bright look of your eyes.
8. Use a touch of shimmer
Subtle use of shimmer can really open up your eyes and make them look brighter. Find an eyeshadow in your favorite light color, such as champagne, white or any type of nude that has just a touch of shimmer to it and apply this to the area nearest to your tear ducts and just under your eyebrows for the best effect, it will help open up your eyes and brighten up your eye area.
