What feature or part of your body are you most confident about? When it comes to hips, hands, waist, bust, or other parts of your body, there are plenty of guides to help you draw more attention to your figure. But what if the part that you love most of all are your eyes? Well, you’re in luck, because there are eyes to bring out the beauty of your eyes, too. If you have eyes that can stop a room, then here are the tips that can help you enhance them and make sure they get the attention that they deserve.
Take good care of them
If you don’t give your eyes the care and nurturing that they deserve, then the thing you’re most likely to hear about them is how tired they look. No-one wants that. Invest in a skincare routine for your eyes. You should be targetting crow’s feet, under-eye puffiness, and dark circles. As such, you need products that are good at moisturizing that skin, but also consider ingredients like hyaluronic acid which can help the skin produce the oils that protect it and keep it looking younger for longer. Avoid smoking, drinking, and too much direct contact with the sun where possible, as well. A good pair of sunglasses for the summer can do a lot of work in keeping your eyes looking fresh and youthful, ensuring that it’s your beautiful blues, browns, greens or ambers that draw attention, not the skin around them.
Find a palette that fits them
One of the best fashion tips you will ever receive is to dress to your natural colors. Create a clothing palette that enhances you as you naturally are. This includes your eyes. Your eyes are only part of your natural palette, of course. Your skin, lips, and hair all play into it as well. However, when it comes to glasses or any jewelry or accessories that draw more attention towards the top of your body and to your face, then you want to choose colors that can enhance the hue of your eyes. At the very least, try to get an idea of whether you’re a cool or a warm palette so that you don’t make choices that jar with and draw attention away from the eyes.
Make your glasses do the work
It’s an all too common mistake that women try to choose glasses that disrupt their look as little as possible. Slim, innocuous glasses that don’t draw much attention and don’t make your face look “weird” is a very common styling choice, but it’s entirely the wrong approach. You should be choosing glasses that catch attention, that bring it to the eyes, and that brings a bit more personality to your face. A good pair of Gucci glasses can do a lot of work. Just make sure, as mentioned above, that you’re choosing frames that match your palette. Broader frames are likely to have a wider range of colors available, but even slim metal frames might have choices between different gold and silver colors, so know whether to go cool or warm.
Pick glasses that fit your face
When you’re picking glasses, you also need to consider how they fit the ensemble package that is your face. The proportions of your features will change which shape fits you best, so figure out whether you have a round, oval, square or heart-shaped face and which glasses fit your face shape. Your glasses and eyebrows have an important relationship, as well, so make sure that your brows are still visible and not overshadowed by your choice of eyewear. All of this will help to draw attention to the eyes, but make sure that you’re not distracting attention to the area around the eyes, instead.
Wear eye-catching accessories
One of the purposes of accessories is that they draw attention away from the rest of the outfit to those parts of your body that you want to highlight as best as possible. When it comes to your eyes, then it’s clear that your glasses are going to do most of the work, but some jewelry can be helpful, as well. For instance, a good pair of earrings will keep the attention up high on the face, which can lead them to better notice the eyes. If you’re a more adventurous sort, then you might even go in for eyebrow piercings or other pieces of glam that keep the focus on your eyes.
Hats and hair accessories work too
The aim is to keep the other person’s eyes on your eyes, or at least close enough to them so that their gaze can inevitably be drawn to yours. As well as using jewelry as mentioned above, you can also use hats and hair accessories to keep their eyes towards the top half of your head. You can do this by, for instance, creating an easy DIY flower crown that is just perfect for those who love the natural look or a more bohemian style. If you have bangs, then make good use of them with carefully positioned clips that hang by your eyes, too.
Make those lashes lush
You don’t have to wear makeup to enhance your eyes a little more, either. Whether you do or not use makeup, curling your lashes can add depth and liveliness to your eyes. They can make them look larger and more alert, which can give a much better impression of you. A good lash curler should give them a more natural curl when applied right instead of a harsh angle so it’s important to invest in good equipment if you curl your lashes often. Otherwise, you can lightly brush your lashes upwards by using a toothbrush (preferably one that isn’t used to brush teeth.)
With the right fashion, makeup, and grooming tips, you can ensure that your eyes get precisely the attention that they deserve. Hopefully, the tips ensure your eyes serve as your strength for years to come and help you get much more use out of them, too.
