For almost a year, we have been wearing a mask that covers a large part of our face. Our eyes have become our only seductive asset, which is why it is so important to have pretty eyes. Here are the most tried and tested techniques to enhance it.
This technique aims to accentuate the intensity of the eyes by placing silk microfibre extensions on the natural lashes. It allows the lashes to be lengthened, curled and thickened. Specialised sites such as www.the-lab-institut.fr offer a wide range of services dedicated to the beauty of the eyes, including eyelash extensions. The professionals master the “lash to lash” method in particular. Eyelash extensions make everyday life easier for women who have lashes that are too straight or too short. They no longer need to apply mascara as the lashes are naturally voluminous. Note that the products used to fix eyelash extensions do not come into direct contact with the skin.
Did you know that longer, fuller lashes make the eyes look younger?
Gone are the days of sparse and over-plucked eyebrows, the trend is for full eyebrows à la Lily Collins. An eyebrow extension not only gives structure to the eyes, but also enhances them. If you opt for this service, you will no longer need to draw your eyebrows with a pencil every morning. As an indication, a session lasts 30 to 60 minutes, depending on the number of eyebrows to be applied. The false eyebrows are generally glued to the natural lashes (if not, the practitioner glues them directly to the skin). Don’t worry, this is a painless technique. However, remember that the extensions remain in place of a fortnight. After that, they must be renewed.
Semi-permanent eyelash make-up
Semi-permanent eyelash make-up is very practical and consists of applying semi-permanent mascara. Thanks to this technique, women no longer need to apply or remove make-up from their eyelashes. This saves time in the morning and evening! Even better, permanent mascara does not run and you don’t have to worry about unsightly clumps. A semi-permanent lash make-up session lasts from 30 minutes to 1 hour. The “intense look” effect is immediate and lasts about 3 to 4 weeks. This practice does not present any health risk since the product does not come into direct contact with the skin.
This revolutionary technique consists of restructuring the eyebrows hair by hair, thus creating a shading of the most beautiful effect. Using a metallic pen, the practitioner tattoos the eyebrows by diffusing pigments into the superficial layers of the epidermis. The result gives the impression of totally natural eyebrows. However, it is necessary to plan a first touch-up within a month after the microshading session. The pigments last for about a year and a half. This procedure can be slightly painful but is risk-free. This technique is particularly suitable for people with sensitive skin.
Decongesting tired eyes
Stress, or tiredness, and dark circles or bags form under your eyes. You can then say goodbye to your fiery eyes. What can you do about it? All you have to do is adopt good habits on a daily basis. Start by gently massaging the area around your eyes. Use circular motions from the inside to the outside. Light tapping also helps to reduce fatigue. Rinse your face with warm water and then cold water. You should also regularly apply a “special eye contour” moisturiser to revitalise your eyes. Remember to use a care product according to the fragility and sensitivity of your eyes. Age and skin type should also be taken into account when choosing a cream. Among the alternatives available on the beauty care market, don’t hesitate to try vegetable oils, these nuggets offered to us by nature will be an excellent ally in keeping your skin healthy and resolutely young.
Eyebrow maintenance : the guarantee of a sparkling look
Just because the mask hides half of the face, it doesn’t mean you can skip the make-up. Concentrate on eyebrow makeup. The key is to find the style that suits you. One way to do this is to apply a transparent gel to discipline the eyebrows and give character to the face. Eye pencil, kohl or eyeliner will also be useful to achieve a “doe eye” effect. If necessary, pluck your overly tousled eyebrows. Be careful not to make them too thin or too short. Above all, avoid full hair removal, which is not very effective. You will also need to have a light hand on the mascara and eyeliner. Tip: the mascara is applied in a zigzag pattern to allow the brush to pass between the lashes.
