BeautyStyle: All Eyes on You

People may accuse me of being much younger than my actual age, but with the gray hairs, wrinkles, and dark circles beginning to appear, I just don’t see it. With my denial comes a myriad of products marketed to cover, smother, and otherwise hide my aging skin. Thankfully I have searched high and low for the best and brightest (no pun intended) to keep your eyes looking lighter and brighter.

1} Olay Total Effects Eye Treatment – This pretty little swirl of eye cream is nothing short of a lifesaver. This miracle working product both reduces wrinkles and lightens the under eye area. I have been using it for a few weeks now and have noticed a significant difference in those pesky black bags under my eyes. Imagine the difference if I would just add some sleep to that routine!

2} YSL Touche Eclat – Yes, I realize this stuff is pricey, but trust me when I say it’s worth it. I moved from using a traditional concealer under my eyes to this and haven’t looked back.

3} MAC Paint Pot in Painterly – The paint pot makes a great eyelid base and keeps your shadows from shifting throughout the day.

4} Garnier Ultra-Lift Eye Roller – Just read the reviews for this eye roller and you’ll be convinced that it should join your product regimen. This little massaging pen works to reduce fine lines around the eyes and is light enough to wear under your daily makeup.

5} Boom Boom Brow Highlighter – Thanks to LuckyFABB I came home with this lovely little brow stick. This double-sided chubby pencil can be used to highlight under the brows, but I also love to apply it to the inner corner of my eyes for little pop.

6} Smashbox Photo Finish Under Eye Primer – I have sung the praises of Smashbox primers for years and this version is no different. Apply a dab of this under eye primer before using concealer (or even better the Touch Eclat) and no one will be the wiser that you went to bed at 4 AM.

    Great recs! I have been looking for a new eye treatment, so I might have to give that Olay one a try.

  2. You are literally reading my mind in this post!! I keep hearing everyone rave about YSL concealer but I haven't wanted to spend the money so I got the Garnier Eye roller… I like it so far but I can't tell if it is just covering up or actually helping.

      I got lucky and had a sephora gift card, but honestly I would spend my own money on it again. I was getting really self conscious about the bags under my eyes, but it totally works! They will give samples at Sephora so you can try it out first!
