Simple Ways To Make Your Eyes Stand Out

Hair BlowingWould you like to draw more attention to your eyes? There are a few simple things you can do to make your eyes stand out. Here’s what you can do:

Get Your Beauty Rest

You want people to notice your eyes because they are bright and beautiful, not because of those telltale dark circles. Beauty rest really does leave you looking better. Aim for 7-8 hours of sleep each night.

If for some reason, you can’t get the sleep you need one night, you can fake it by holding a cold compress over your eyes, using an eye cream that contains caffeine, or holding wet tea bags under your eyes. These remedies can reduce puffiness and make dark circles look less noticeable.

Tweak Your Makeup Routine

A few changes to your makeup routine can also make your eyes more noticeable. If you have dark circles under your eyes, use a creamy concealer to cover them up.  To make your eyes look even brighter and more awake, dab a little bit of white shadow in the inside and outside corners of your eyes and choose light colors of eye shadow.

If you’re going for a more dramatic, night time look, use eye shadow that matches your eye color, dark liner, and lots of mascara. Keep the rest of your makeup subtle so your eyes really pop.

Reduce Distracting Find Lines And Wrinkles

Wrinkles and fine lines near your eyes can make you look tired, older, or stressed. Botox gives many patients a quick and easy way to eliminate these wrinkles so that their eyes look younger and happier.

Get Longer Lashes

Would you like to have long, thick, dark lashes without applying gobs of mascara? Consider Latisse. Latisse helps patients to grow natural lashes that are longer, thicker and darker.

Eliminate Sagging Skin

As people age, the skin around the eyes may sag. This can leave people with sagging upper eye lids, or permanent puffiness underneath the eyes. If this is the case for you, ask about blepharoplasty—a cosmetic procedure that can eliminate sagging skin and make your eyes look younger and more open. In some cases that sagging skin interferes with vision, so blepharoplasty can make it easier to see.
