Woken up late? Slept past your alarm? If you’ve had a bad night sleep or woken up on the wrong side of bed chances are you’re not in the mood to use a bunch of complicated makeup techniques to brighten eyes. As bigger eyes and brighter eyes often help to brighten the overall face and give you a well-rested, more “awake” look. If you’re looking to learn how to make eyes look bigger or how to brighten under eyes there’s a few products you can incorporate into your routine for brighter eyes in seconds -- without any complicated eyeshadow or time-consuming highlighting techniques.
Start with an Eye Cream
As dry and dehydrated skin can often dull the under-eye area and thus your overall complexion it’s a good idea to use a product in your skincare routine which targets the unique skin around your eyes. An eye cream is the perfect prep to help smooth the under eye area and give it a boost of hydration before you move onto your makeup and concealer – it can help to create the look of brighter eyes and some specific eye creams can even help to reduce the appearance of dark circles like our Advanced Génifique Eye Cream for example. Advanced Génifique Eye is specially formulated to target the unique skin around your eyes and is clinically tested to visibly reduce dark circles & wrinkles under eyes over time for visibly brighter eyes. **. Advanced Génifique Eye also helps improve the appearance of fine lines caused by dehydration or due to thinning skin, which can eventually deepen into wrinkles. You may also like to try Advanced Génifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye – our illuminating eye concentrate. It’s a brightening eye serum that works to improve the appearance of dark circles, and visibly reduce eye bags (thus eyes look more awake!) Note: Hydration and radiance doesn’t just stop at the eyes – for even more anti-aging benefits and radiance try the Advanced Génifique skincare collection and our award-winning Advanced Génifique Face Serum.
