5 beauty tips for a sparkling look

Having a hard time getting a good night's sleep these days? Before you even start your day, do you already look exhausted? To regain a healthy glow, take care of your eyes! Here are Veld's 5 tips for a fresh, sparkling and full of life look!

Decongest your eyes for a fresh look

When you jump out of bed, you can only see the damage:puffiness, dark circles, tired eyes. Do not panic, the first good thing is to decongest ! Start by cleansing your face with cool water. The cold gives a boost to the skin, tightens the pores and tightens the skin. Then, equip yourself with ice cubes, or spoons placed in the refrigerator. Apply them under your eyes to decongest the eye contour and reduce dark circles and puffiness.

Then, when applying your moisturizer or eye cream, gently sweep over the eye area. Massage in small circles fingertips, then gently pinch the skin to activate blood circulation around the eye . Finally, close your eyes then move them up and down, left and right, and draw a figure eight. These movements of the eyeball will help wake up and tighten the small muscle fibers around the eyes, and circulate the lymph.

Pamper your eyes with an eye contour treatment

Moisturizing the skin is an essential part of any daily beauty routine. Only, we sometimes forget the hydration of an area more fragile than the others:the contour of the eye. The skin is up to 10 times thinner than on the rest of the face . This is why it more easily translates our fatigue, or a poor state of health for example.

This fragile area requires specific care, which is why an eye contour treatment is essential in your beauty routine! Apply your eye contour morning and evening, just before your moisturizer to regain a fresh look. You can leave it in the refrigerator between applications, for best results.

At Veld's, we have designed the Eye Magic treatment:a targeted treatment to decongest, moisturize and tighten the skin around the eyes. To offer a sparkling look to all, it is available in three formulas:eye contour lifting, anti-puffiness and concealer, eye contour anti-wrinkle. The latter was also awarded at the victories of beauty 2019-2020! Finally, these treatments are equipped with a brush applicator, to activate the circulation of the eye contour, while respecting the fragility of this area.

Special eye makeup for tired eyes

Once your eyes are decongested and cared for with care, all that remains is to move on to beauty. For great ills, great remedies:opt for special eye makeup for tired eyes . Start by applying concealer in small strokes, then tap to place the material without stretching it too much.

If your dark circles are dark, use an orange concealer to "break up" the purple of the dark circles, then apply a highlighter or foundation of your skin tone over it. If you have bags under your eyes, use little material and prefer foundation to highlighter:the latter could draw attention to the bags, by accentuating the relief with its "luminous" action.

To make up your eyelid, avoid colors that are too dark which would mark wrinkles, dark circles and signs of fatigue. Use an eyeshadow or a pearly eyeliner, see iridescent, to bring light to the look, gently. Then apply a line of brown pencil along the upper lashes, then your mascara. Above all, we avoid eye shadow, kohl pencil, or mascara on the lower lashes and under the eye, because these draw attention to dark circles:we keep the attention up! To finalize your make-up, you can apply a colored lipstick and a little blush:bringing color to the make-up will give an immediate healthy-glow effect, and will divert attention from the eyes.

Sooth your eyes after your day

Since our eyes are fragile, they should be given a break at the end of the day. Remove your make-up carefully, to make room clean, and prevent impurities from attacking the area around the eyes. Clean your face with your usual cleanser. Then, place two cotton balls soaked in cornflower water in the refrigerator. Once cool, apply them to your eyes for 10 minutes.

Cornflower water will calm irritations, eliminate the last residues of make-up, decongest and hydrate the area. This is the perfect opportunity to lie down for 10 minutes and give yourself a break, to decompress from the day. Then apply your moisturizer and then your eye contour care :voila!

Do an anti-fatigue mask once a week

Once a week, a reviving mask can help you regain a fresh look instantly! There are reusable gel masks, which are placed in the fridge, before leaving for 15 to 30 minutes. It can be found in stores dedicated to skincare and make-up, as well as in pharmacies.

Otherwise, grandmother's tricks are always effective:two slices of cucumbers or two bags of green tea placed in the fridge , and hop, we let it sit for 20 minutes. This small revitalizing and moisturizing mask, made every week, is ideal for protecting your eyes from fatigue, but also from the appearance of wrinkles!
