The eyes are the window into the soul, but they also can reveal a lot about our age. Here are a few quick (and free!) hacks that turn back the clock using items you already have on hand.
You can thicken lashes with baby powder. The fine, light powder coats lashes, adding grip for mascara to adhere to while bulking up hairs so they look twice as thick.
To do: Swipe a coat of mascara onto lashes, then use a clean spoolie to apply a light layer of baby powder on top of it. Finish with a second coat of mascara to lock in the powder.
An orange-based lipstick (opposite blue on the color wheel) neutralizes the bluish/purple shadows.
To do: Swipe an orange-based peach (for light skin) or an orange-based red (for medium to dark skin) onto circles, blend well with a makeup sponge, then top with foundation or concealer.
Try some Vaseline. When applied to the highest point of the brow, light bounces off the reflective sheen of petroleum jelly, bringing the brow bone forward for an instant eye-lift effect.
To do: Use a makeup sponge to apply a tiny drop of the jelly along the brow bone on each side of the face (just below the eyebrow’s arch).
