I love my eyes. And it's ok to say that. I feel like my eyes really show my happiness and joy. So why not make the most out of them! Right? I use to lightly line my eyes both top and bottom until... I hit middle age and decided I needed a softer look. I went to one of my favorite makeup counters and asked for some advice. At Laura Mercier, they showed me how to "tightline" my eyes, which I have now been doing for years. You can read more about it here. And you can buy the special brush and cake eyeliner here and here. The brush is a bit expensive but it will last for years. It took a bit of practice to perfect both but feel the look is much softer than lining above my eyelashes which I felt was too heavy especially for daytime.
Still trying to brighten my eyes a bit I looked for another technique to accentuate and brighten my eyes. Many days, especially when I was traveling every week, I felt my peepers looked tired. I like this article that shares different ideas on brightening. Luckily, I found a white highlighter by Sonia Kashuk that works extremely well and you can buy it here from Amazon. There are many other brands that offer eye highlighters as well and I have linked them below in Instagram and LiketoKnow.it. My video below shows both tightlining as well as highlighting.
I love both methods as it looks natural for an everyday look. And if you have blue or green eyes, it really makes your eye color stand out. If I am applying or freshening up my makeup for a night out, I usually freshen both areas and may pop some white highlighter in the corners of my eyes to open up my eyes even more.
