Brighter Eyes Easy Way

Updated on December 22, 2010

Tips for Brighter Eyes

They say that the eyes are the windows to the soul. They are also one of the first things anyone notices about you when you look at them. Bright eyes are perceived as paying more attention to what is being said as well as being friendlier and more attractive. This is likely because that is how well-rested, fully alert eyes naturally look, and we all know that people who are tired tend to pay less attention and be more cranky than those who get the full amount of beauty sleep they need.

Cosmetics are one way to make a person's eyes seem brighter. Of course, it is important to avoid cheap looking makeup techniques that serve to make one look more like a clown than they do to make the eyes seem brighter. However, using some carefully chosen and well concealed makeup artist techniques and tricks, you can make your eyes look brighter and prettier in just a few easy steps.

And now for a self-serving plug about making money writing online.

Tinted eye liners and tinted eye shadows that compliment your natural eye color are the best choice. Putting this kind of makeup on your face around your eyes will provide the brighter eyes effect you seek without standing out too much because the colors seem to naturally "go" with the rest of the colors on

Bright Beautiful Eyes

Eye Makeup Tips

In addition to choosing eyeshadow, eyeliner, and mascara that compliment your natural eye color, choose makeup that is billed by the maker as "lightening" or "reflective" as these makeups are designed to make the naturally occurring light seem brighter by absorbing as little of the intensity as possible.

Darker eyeshadows and eyeliners absorb light and are better for creating that "smoldering" or "intense" look that comes from smokier looking eyes. These concepts in makeup tend to work better at night when people looking at your face expect to see darker shadows and eyes that aren't quite as "bright" having been through the rigors of a full day already.

One option for lighter eyes is the Exact Eyelights line of cosmetics from Covergirl. Not only are these eye makeup cleverly named - eyelights sounds like highlights - they contain "light-reflecting" metalics that help direct available light back to that guy who keeps staring at your beautiful face. OK, that might be a little big of marketing, but the concept behind the advertising is sound.
By reflecting light back to the viewer, the area around your eyes seems brighter. Since human perception is based a lot on how we expect things to look and behave together, viewers will perceive a brighter eye as well, because it doesn't really make sense that one area would be bright while the other is dark in such close proximity.
Try making your eyes brighter and lighter with these makeup tricks. You might be surprised at the results.

      Thanks for the tips! I think it's very important to make sure our eyes are bright everyday too. Thank goodness there's concealers to hide any dark circles from late nights.
