It’s said that eye contact is one of the most important non-verbal communication tools that humans use. We look at each other’s eyes when we first meet, when we want to gauge the interest level of the person we are talking to, and when we’d like to find out what someone is really thinking or feeling. All this is to say that we spend a lot of time looking at other people’s eyes, and they spend a lot of time looking at ours. So, what are your eyes saying about you? If you’ve never really thought about it, maybe now is the time. When your eyes look their best, you will automatically look more attractive and likeable overall. Here are some tips for keeping your eyes looking great.
- Have well shaped eyebrows. Nothing can more quickly open up your face and brighten your eye area that having the right eyebrow shape. For a step-by-step instruction on tweezing your eyebrows, please read Create Perfect Eyebrows.
- Keep your eyebrows groomed and free of strays. Once you have a great eyebrow shape, it’s important to maintain that look. Aside from plucking stray hairs as they grow, you’ll also want to keep your eyebrows from getting too long or bushy. You can do this by combing your eyebrows up with an eyelash/eyebrow comb and trimming them with point tip scissors or safety scissors. You can also do quick touch-ups with an eyebrow razor.
- Make your eyes as big and beautiful as possible. The quickest, most effective way to make your eyes look bigger and brighter is to curl your eyelashes. A good metal eyelash curler is a girl’s best friend! A few seconds of curling (top lashes only) will do wonders for your eyes. Follow up with your favorite mascara to seal in the curl, but remember…always curl first on clean, dry lashes, THEN apply mascara.
