How to help ageing eyes

By 22 March, 2017Bridal

Eyes! No matter how carefully you have looked after them the effects of aging can take its toll leaving you with bags, sags, wrinkles and dark circles. Andrea and I are in our early 30s now and have started to notice a difference. We have made it our personal mission to find out what’s really the best way to conceal and correct ageing eyes.

Concealer

Concealer is a must when combating dark circles but it’s essential to pick the right colour and texture for your skin. Concealer that is too light or too thick will exaggerate uneven skin texture and fine lines, below are a few of our kit favourites.

Amazing concealer – This concealer really lives up to its name, it gives excellent coverage and you only need the tiniest amount. It is easy to blend, doesn’t crease, lasts for hours and blots out all darkness.

Bobbi Brown Corrector – Fab colour selection to beat any red, purple and blue undertones. It has a nice consistency, not too sticky or cakey and can be used under or as a concealer on its own.

Clinique Airbrush concealer – This is a great highlighting concealer. It’s lightweight yet pigmented enough to conceal and highlight the dark circles around the eyes without looking too heavy. It has decent staying power and will last most of the and it’s also good for very sensitive eyes.

Eyelash curlers

Eyelash curlers are a game changer in the hunt for more youthful eyes. They instantly make you look more awake by widening the eye and giving the lashes a fuller and longer look. In our opinion the best two brands for this are Shu Uemura and Shiseido.

Eyelash growth serum

It works! It’s true , your lashes will become stronger, thicker and longer after 3 months of daily use. It takes a long time to work but it is well worth the wait for a natural fake lash effect! There are a lot on the market that have had great reviews but our favourite is Lilash.

Eyecreams

With hundreds to choose from it can be a little overwhelming picking the right one for you. Here are a couple multi task eye creams that we have tried out,liked and believe can show some good results.

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Ferulic + Retinol Triple Correction Eye Serum – This eye treatment fights wrinkles, dark circles and firms up skin texture. We found it plumped and hydrated our skin leaving us looking bright eyed.

SK-II Essential Power Eye Cream – Love the texture of this cream, its thick and soothing with no smell. Once applied it absorbs quickly without leaving any grease, you can see it tightening and brightening around the eyes instantly!

RoC Retinol Correxion Sensitive Eye Cream – Good all-rounder at a reasonable price.

Surgery

If you have exhausted all avenues surgery would be the last option.   Whether you have crow’s feet, drooping eyelids, wrinkles, puffiness or hollow and sunken eyes there are treatments out there for you. These treatments aren’t cheap and can be painful but the results are often amazing.
