Get some sleep or some ice

We all need our beauty sleep. I know I need about 7/8 hours sleep to feel human, but some nights I just can’t get the sleep I need, and my eyes start to sting in the morning. On those frustrating mornings, I get a bag of ice wrapped in a flannel for some relieve. This can also help with puffy swollen eyes; the ice helps to take the swelling down.


Eyelash extensions

Using eyelash extensions is an easy way to make your eyes pop instantly. They are quick and easy to use, and there are loads of options now in the market. You can go for a natural-looking eyelash enhancement for a natural look. If you are after full-on hollywood glamour, you will find full-on false eyelashes to go with the look.


Make your eyes pop with a concealer

Concealers are great for making our eyes appear brighter, getting rid of dark circles, and hiding blemishes. To make your eyes pop using a concealer,  go for a shade lighter than your skin tone.


Use a Mascara

Mascaras are great for opening up the eyes and making them pop. I have quite a few mascaras in my makeup bag, and they all come in handy in different ways.


Get the eyebrows done

I like to have my eyebrows threaded or waxed every month. I prefer threading as it is easier on the skin and better. Threaded eyebrows also last longer than waxed brows, which is good value for money. Well shaped eyebrows is a good place to start when it comes to eye make up.

  1. I love a white or nude crayon in the waterline to make my eyes pop. Also a shimmering inner corner highlight. To get rid of dark circles, I use a peachy concealer to cancel out the purple. Orange lipsticks can work too!

  2. You’ve just reminded me that I really need to get my eyebrows done – it makes all the difference. I swear by concealer under my eyes so that’s a must for me. Never tried using ice though for some relief – will give it a go.

  3. I thought then you were going to give me the magical answer to getting 8 hours sleep. I will have to use the ice! I used to wear eye lash extensions a lot, but its one of those things that has gone by the way side since having kids. I must start doing it again!

  4. Really great tips and ones I generally try to follow myself. You are so right sleep is definitely number one not enough sleep can make you look really tired. I especially experience this being pregnant at the moment. Drinking lots of water helps too. And like you say a good mascara and getting your eyebrows done too! Great tips xx

  5. All good tips Stella. i have my eyebrows and whole of face threaded once a month when I go to the spa. When you get to a certain age hair appears in other places to you defo don’t want. I love having it done. It feels so clean and fresh.

  6. I have quite small eyes so getting my eyebrows done really helps make them stand out. They so need doing at the moment though……..need the kids to go back to school so I can get them done

  7. Great tips. I really appreciate these points. I will start using ice cos I never get enough sleep. Does eye liner help too?
