Some quick tips for your eyes only

1) Leave your eyebrow pencil in the refrigerator overnight and it will sharpen easily.

2) For scanty eyebrows add a few drops of glycerine to a little castor oil and apply I it on the eyebrows. Leave it overnight. It will take about 6 weeks for improvement.

3) Apply a little Vaseline on your eyelids to obtain a luminous look. The oil will also prevent eyelids from drying and will help lashes to grow.

4) Amla (gooseberries) lends brightness to the eyes. Soak amla overnight in water and use this water next morning to wash the eyes.

5) Revive tired eyes in hot weather by soaking 2 pieces of cotton pads in chilled ice-cold water. Place the pads on closed eyelids and relax in a dark room for 10 minutes.

6) Massaging a good whitening cream very gently around the eyes starting from the inner corner of your eyes and working outwards will help to improve the condition of any dark circles around the eyes.

7) Dark circles under the eyes may be caused by fatigue, improper digestion, worry, and sleeplessness or poor health condition. So finding out the right cause is very essential to eliminate dark circles.

8) For dark circles, eat a lot of green vegetables & fruits. Drink plenty of milk. At night massage a good whitening cream gently around the eyes, as explained above. Never stretch or pull the skin under the eyes, as it is very delicate.

9) Reduce puffed up skin under the eyes by covering the eyes for sometime, with pads, which are dipped in a mixture of one-pint hot water and one tablespoon of salt.

    Avoid going to sleep until you have removed your makeup. Tiny flecks of mascara can irritate your eyes while you sleep and once you wake up from your slumber. Prevent these problems by removing your makeup each night before you go to sleep.

    If you were told as a child that eating carrots would help you see in the dark, this isn't entirely an old wives' tale. Carrots are a good source of beta carotene, which our bodies turn into vitamin A, and vitamin A is important for seeing in dim light.

    No type of eye exercise can improve a refractive error or cure any ailment within the eyeball or in any remote part of the body.

  20. Foods that benefit your eyes are those that are deep yellow and dark green, fruit & vegetables: Carrots, yams squash, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, cantaloupes & other yellow melons, zuccinni squash, peaches & apricots.
    Also can try 1-drop of carrot seed oil
    1-drop of flax seed oil
    Put a drop of each in each eye just as you are going to lay down in bed. =)

    Sweep peach eyeshadow over your entire eyelid. It will blend with your natural skin tone, but give a clean wide-eyed look to your make up.

    I like “My Favorite Color”! The glitter could be a little smaller though lol.

  24. I use to wear contacts for many years but had the Lasix surgery on my eyes so not anymore. Have you tried to apply eye drops for contact Lens wearers before applying your contact lenses? You should put on contacts first and make up last and make sure your hands and fingers are clean , dry and lent free. I used Almay products when I wore contacts, even their mascara. Clinique should works also.
