Your eyes reveal secrets that you don’t wish to share, like excess wine from the previous evening, sleepless nights due to children, or corporate burnout. I’ve found exciting products and services that will help your eyes and the area around them look fresh and youthful regardless of how you spend your days and nights.
1-DAY ACUVUE DEFINE Brand Contact Lenses
This is a new category of eye enhancement lenses that have iris-inspired designs that create an outer darker limbal ring to give eyes greater definition by creating contrast between the iris and the white part of your eye. Additionally, an inner translucent light-effects pattern is layered over the iris to add depth and definition without changing your eye’s natural color. FYI: Independent research shows that people are more attracted to women and men with pronounced limbal rings, which are associated with a healthy and youthful appearance.
I switched out my old lenses for 1-DAY ACUVUE DEFINE Brand Contact Lenses, and I’m a squint short of looking like Angelina Jolie. OK, maybe not Angie, but I’m a better version of me. What can I say? Beauty is addictive!
Box of 30 lenses – $75. Find your local distributor at Acuvue.com/define.
Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Eye Serum
With two babies born in two years, I know firsthand what lack of sleep can do to the delicate skin under your eyes. My secret to looking alive and fabulous even during those hectic, first months was Vitamin K Brightening Eye Serum. I live for this product because the results are almost instantaneous. The Vitamin K helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness that resulted from the evening’s shenanigans. This is a beauty game changer!
WINK Brow Bar
The quickest, pain-free facelift can be achieved with perfect brows. That’s why a lovely Russian woman in Brooklyn has been waxing my brows since I was 16 years old. But now I’ve made the switch to threading after being bowled over by the artisans and the spa-like feel at WINK Brow Bar.
Using organic thread, my brows were gently sculpted in 10minutes. I walked out without redness, and feeling very glamorous and highbrow. Stop agitating, pulling, and aging your skin with wax or tweezers, and give your brows a beautiful break and shape. For added indulgence, try their Lash Bar and Makeup Bar, as well as the Face Bar, which uses luxurious Isabelle Lancray products.
