Brighten your eyes to enhance your natural beauty by eating the right foods, giving them massages, wearing the right kind of makeup, protecting them, and brightening your under-eye area with a mask. Bright, sparkling eyes communicate that you’re feeling well-rested, healthy, and happy without saying a word.
Here are six ways to brighten your eyes:
1. Eat More Omega Fatty Acids
Dry eyes are dull eyes. According to current research, omega fatty acids can help to keep them hydrated and bright– try increasing your intake of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids with the following:
- Chia seeds
- Flax seeds
If you aren’t able to eat these foods regularly, you can also take an omega supplement.
2. Brighten Your Under-Eye Area
It’s not just your eyes themselves that matter when it comes to brightness. The area around and under your eyes is also important. Dark circles, swelling, and puffiness will all make them look smaller and duller. Unfortunately, no matter your skin type, the skin around your eyes is incredibly delicate and prone to dryness, puffiness, and darkening.
Luckily, it’s easy to treat these symptoms and brighten up your eyes with a brightening eye mask. Look for masks made with hydrating, protecting, and brightening ingredients like marine collagen, hyaluronic acid, and vitamin B3 to fight back against dark circles, dryness, and swelling.
3. Try an Eye Massage
Another way to soothe dark circles and puffiness around the eyes is an eye massage. A simple, gentle massage can help increase circulation and lymphatic drainage to reduce the appearance of inflammation and darkening.
After using an eye mask, gently tap your fingertips in a circle around your eyes, then make a circle from your eyebrows down along your cheekbones to the bridge of your nose. Repeat this three times, taking care not to drag or pull on your skin.
4. Protect Your Eyes
Just like skin, your eyes need regular protection from environmental irritants. Avoid smoking or being around smoke as it dries them out. Limit the amount of alcohol you drink as it dilates blood vessels and makes your eyes look bloodshot. Also, always wear sunglasses when outside in the sun to keep them safe from irritating UV rays.
5. Experiment with Makeup
Makeup will do the trick if you need a quick fix for brighter eyes. Use an illuminating concealer that’s yellow-based and slightly lighter than your skin tone. Keep your eyeshadow and eyeliner light, as dark colors make the eyes look smaller and more tired. A shimmery eyeshadow in the inner corners can also do wonders. Finally, use an eyelash curler to make your eyes look bigger, brighter, and more open.
