4 STEPS TO BRIGHT EYES!
Dark, puffy peepers getting you down? These tips will sort you out
STEP ONE Mask it
Beat B the puff by popping on a Skin Republic 24K Gold Aquagel Under Eye
Patch $12.99. Much more prescriptive than cream-based masks, this one is infused with an intensive gold serum to improve elasticity and minimise the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Place it in the fridge for 30 minutes before use, so the cooling effect can soothe puffiness.
STEP TWO Apply a cream
“When it comes to a good eye cream, it’s worth splashing out,” says Total Face Group’s Pania Pale-eli. A formula that contains both active and skinnourishing ingredients will treat the delicate eye area. Dermalogica Total Eye Care SPF 15 $72.50 is great for the day as it contains an SPF, while Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye $48 is perfect for overnight.
STEP THREE Banish bags
To combat the greyness that emphasises eye bags, dab on a peach-based concealer then
add Stila Aqua Glow Serum Concealer $39. Apply four dots under the eye, then blend in the hydrating formula using a downwards tapping brush motion to disguise any discolouration.
STEP FOUR Say no to FOUR red-eye
If you suffer from bloodshot eyes, try sweeping a nude eyeliner like Rimmel Scandaleyes Waterproof 005 Nude Eyeliner
$10.95 along your lower waterline. This not only rectifies any redness in the skin, it also makes the whites of your eyes look brighter.
