The eyes, to me, are the most engaging part of the body. One look into someone’s eyes can convey more emotion than words can ever express. Bright eyes have the ability to capture someone’s attention in a fraction of a second – and today I’m sharing a quick, everyday trick for brightening yours up a touch.]
All you need is a light-hued shimmery or luminescent powder.
Free People makeup artist Deanna Hagan recommends choosing a dry powder over one that’s moist – it will have less of a chance of getting stuck in your creases. Deanna recommends Kevyn Aucoin “The Loose Shimmer” Eyeshadow in Citrine or Kevin Aucoin “The Celestial” Powder in Candlelight.
Just dip your middle finger into the powder, dab into the inner corers of your eyes, and voila! Instant bright eyes.
If you have dark circles under your eyes, Deanna says it’s best to use a warmer color like gold instead of white or rose.
A final word of advice: Shimmery is good, but stay away from sparkly. “It’s too obvious,” Deanna says — with a wink. ;)
