Whether you’re a new mum like me and surviving on very little sleep, or you’re a single pringle and out all night, cut this guide out and keep it — it’s my quick fix to brighter peepers!
Optrex Eye Dazzling, €4.69, is a huge hit with make-up artists. The drops super-brighten the whites of the eyes and enhance the colour as they have a blue ingredient that really makes your eyes pop!
In Transit Camera CloseUp by This Works, €39.50, www.thisworks.com, is a mask, moisturiser and primer in one. Cleanse the skin, then massage it on, so it acts like a mask. Leave for a minute or two to be absorbed, as it’s quite thick.
For a fast fix, I dab it under my eyes and apply concealer over it.
Sisley Phyto Cernes Eclat Eye Concealer, above left, €70, with its own little brush, beats all other eye concealers.
Check Lancome’s new Hypnose Palette Collection, right, €48. It can be used dry, or wet for a more dramatic look. When used wet, the ‘wet’ technology disperses the pigments across the skin within a fluid that evaporates, leaving concentrated colour on the eyelid.
I’m McLovin the magnetic applicators — they zap into the palette so you can’t lose them and have a variety of edges to get the right look.
My top tip to really add radiance to the eye is to use the lightest shade in the inner corner.
With its precise tip, the foam applicator creates a concentrate of pure light at the heart of the eye.
Finish off with Hypnose Drama mascara, left, €25.50.
