Now that Winter draws closer and those crisp, dull mornings are creeping up on us I'm rather partial to spending an extra few minutes snuggled up, luckily for me though there are some wonder products which work in my favour to disguise tired peepers, leaving me looking bright eyed and bushy tailed for the day ahead.
After giving my face its morning cleanse, I dab on a small amount of Origins GinZing eye cream which is packed with coffee bean caffeine and panax ginseng to de-puff and refresh. It also contains 'natural optic brighteners', in other words, it has a slight sheen to it making your under eye area look wide awake so I make sure it's taken into the inner tear duct area too. On top of that goes YSL Touche Éclat, one click and few strategically placed strokes of this adds light and radiance, and also slightly tones down the eye cream shimmer. I'm fairly sure I discovered this luminizing magic wand at the young age of 16 (not that I had any dark circles to worry about back then!) and my makeup bag hasn't been without one of these since. Last but not least, I give my waterline a quick run over with the 3 Custom Color Light Clarifying Pencil, you may remember me sing its praises in this post. It's basically a flesh coloured liner which neutralises any redness on the inner rim of the eye, instantly making them appear bigger and brighter.
So there we have it, three simple steps which instantly make me look like I've had a whole 10 hours sleep. Of course, I have a whole other routine which I rely on to prevent puffiness and banish bags, this I quite simply call 'The Soothing Eye Facial' - I'll make sure to conjure up a post but in the meantime, what are your eye brightening secrets?
