3 Tricks for Younger-Looking Eyes
Do you ever look in the mirror and wonder, “How can I look younger?”
Often we do this as we look into the reflection of our own eyes. After all, our eyes are the window to the soul and can reflect many years of wisdom, experience, joy and sorrow, while still giving off that youthful spark you feel within.
We all know that our chronological age rarely agrees with the age we feel within. We always feel younger and more vibrant than what is seen by the number of candles on our birthday cake. So before you blow out another set of candles, discover three trade secrets for looking as young as you feel.
How can I look younger – Eyebrow Tips
Full brows may begin to thin as you get older. The worst thing you can do is pick up an eyebrow liner and draw in your brows. This will look hard and unnatural and could scare small children. A better alternative is to add a more natural looking brow with the use of a short nylon brush and eye shadow.
First choose an eye shadow color that compliments your hair color. Only use a darker shade of brown if you have dark hair. Never use black. If your hair is light or grey, opt for a warm beige or taupe.
Using the short bristle brush, apply the color to your brows. Once you have done this, you need to apply some eyebrow gel. This is much like clear mascara which will set the color. Brush on using the wand provided. These simple little products and technique will improve the look of your eyes.
How can I look younger – Make your eyes pop
Getting the look of bigger eyes can be as easy as applying your eyeshadow to the right areas of your lids. The steps are very simple and can be achieved in minutes. Start with a lighter color and cover the entire lid. Then, using a darker color such as smoky grey or warm beige, cover just the crease of the eye to give your eyes a shadow effect. Follow this by curling your lashes as close to the roots as possible and applying mascara. Pow!
How can I look younger – Get rid of under eye bags
Dark circles and puffiness under your eyes can make you look and feel older than you really are. With a few preventative measures and some basic products you can send those bags packing. First be sure you are getting adequate sleep and drinking enough water. Avoiding salt will help reduce water retention.
To reduce puffiness you can try a natural remedy such as applying slices of cool cucumber or cooled tea bags for about 15 minutes. You can also use a hemorrhoid treatment but be sure to avoid getting this into your eyes. All of these products can reduce swelling and the dark color.
After the treatment of choice, wash your face with cool water and then apply an eye cream. The best creams to use are those which contain retinol or vitamin K. The cool water will help stop excess blood flow that results in swelling around the eyes.
With these few tips your eyes can be bright and remain a youthful focal point no matter what your age.
