If eyes are the windows to the soul, you might as well dress them up as nicely as possible. But when you’re looking a bit dull and tired, how can you pep up your peepers?
Here are some very nifty tips from Stylecaster to help us brighten up
The easiest way to brighten eyes is with a great white eyeliner and a dab of metallic powder on the tear duct. The white eyeliner makes your eyes look bright.
Try experimenting with blue liner instead of black or brown. Blue tones will make the whites of your eyes look brighter.
Counteract redness and dark circles
Use a concealer with pink or yellow undertones and finish with an illuminating veil to set the concealer. Don’t use a heavy powder; use a very light mineral veil with illumination.
Always line the waterline of your lower lashes
This area is often red or pink and by lining with a light colour, you will make your eye brighter. You can use a light pink, lavender, green, gold, or bronze. This will lighten and brighten your eye area without making your eyes look smaller the way a dark liner would.
Play to your eye colour
To make eyes appear brighter, you can play with eyeshadows that will brighten your eye colour. For instance, blue eyes love rust and terracotta brown shades, while bronze eyeshadows with flecks of gold can pop brown and hazel eyes.
Get your brows shaped
A well-shaped brow will also frame the eyes and make them appear brighter and give you a finished look.
If you have small eyes, avoid applying eyeliner from corner to corner – it will make your eyes appear even smaller (especially if using black or brown eyeliner). To make small eyes appear bigger, apply eyeliner from the centre to the outside of your eye and blend.
Add some shimmer
Take a tiny little brush or Q-tip and dip gently in a sparkly, loose eyeshadow. Choose a shade that’s close to your natural skin tone and just outline the inner eye corners with the makeup. Just highlighting that area always accents the eyes and makes them appear bigger and brighter.
