Recently, I’ve been thinking a lot about my eyes and how I can give them a bit of a boost. We spend a lot of time focusing on complexions and skin care routines, but very few of us make as much effort with our eyes.
Not only are your eyes important when it comes to making a good first impression, but they can also capture the attention of that cute guy that you like. So it’s safe to say that our eyes are incredibly important. A recent survey showed that 70 percent of men noticed a woman’s eyes before anything else.
If, like me, you aren’t 100 percent happy with your eyes at the moment, don’t stress. Simply by following these tips, you can give your eyes a major beauty boost.

1. Get Rid of Those Bags
If you are prone to getting bags under your eyes, the first thing you should do is learn how to cover them up. You may not be able to get rid of them for good – sigh, but you can hide them. Yes, concealing the dark appearance of bags can be tricky, but it is doable.
The best way to hide those pesky bags is with concealer. Invest in a good-quality concealer that is two shades lighter than your foundation and is yellow-toned.
2. Curl Your Lashes
You may not realize it, but simply by curling your lashes, you can make your eyes look bigger and more beautiful instantly. Before you apply your favorite mascara, curling your eyelashes is a must.
As well as curling your lashes, you could also consider using an eyelash growth serum. If you want to make your lashes longer, using a specialist growth serum is the best way to do this. Believe it or not, these serums actually, work amazingly well at making your lashes longer and more luscious.
3. Choose the Best Mascara
As well as curling and making your eyelashes longer, choosing a good-quality mascara is crucial. Cheaper mascaras tend to make your lashes stick together, so it’s worth investing in a good mascara. Otherwise, you will end up looking like you have spider’s legs, instead of lashes – not a nice look.
There are lots of fantastic mascaras to choose from, but one of the best is Benefit’s They’re Real mascara. So if you are on the lookout for a new mascara, this could be the perfect one for you. I haven’t tried it yet, but Benefit’s Roller Lash mascara is also a big hit. According to many, this mascara lengthens and curls.
4. Perfect Your Eyeshadow
Whether you are a fan of a dramatic smokey eye or a more subtle look, when it comes to giving your eyes a beauty boost, eyeshadow is essential.
If you tend only to wear one style of eyeshadow, go online, watch some eyeshadow tutorials and mix it up a bit. Just like you wouldn’t wear the same outfit day in day out, you shouldn’t wear the same eye makeup either.
Giving your eyes a beauty boost is much easier than you would think. All you need to do is hide those bags, and curl and lengthen your lashes, and everyone will be jealous of your eyes. Want another tip? Those bags under your eyes could just be from a lack of sleep. If you’ve been burning the midnight oil this past month, consider going to bed earlier. They call it beauty sleep for a reason!
