Simple Ways To Get Glamorous Eyes

If your beauty goal is to have glamorous eyes wherever you go without being forced to keep up with too many steps, you are in luck. There are tons of simple tricks that'll make your eyes look more beautiful than they already are, so you can captivate the world around you.


Everyone knows that the eyes are the window to our souls. That being said, it's paramount to make sure that your eyes look charming and alluring as you spend time interacting with other people in your day-to-day life. 

It doesn't necessarily matter if your eyes are blue, green, hazel, gray, dark brown, or something in between. All that matters is that you know what to do to make your eyes look unforgettable. You can successfully communicate with others using eye contact as your main form of body language. Here's how to ensure the most glamorous-looking eyes next time you're in that exact situation.

Use white eyeliner on your waterline

It might seem counterintuitive to apply white eyeliner to your eyes instead of black eyeliner since we've all been taught that black eyeliner makes your eyes pop. It turns out that white eyeliner is amazing since it helps brighten up your eyes while giving your entire face a boost of youthfulness. For those who want their eyes to appear a little bigger and wider than usual, white eyeliner on the waterline can make a huge difference. 


It's easier to look like you're more awake than you are (even when you're super sleepy) if your waterline is lined with white eyeliner. There's a reason cosplay lovers and folks who love dressing up in animé costumes depend on white eyeliner to create a more animated appearance with big, innocent eyes.

Although black eyeliner provides an intense and dramatic result, white eyeliner will have you looking energetic and ready to take on the day.

Experiment with colored contacts

Depending on what color your natural eyes are, it might be tons of fun to experiment with colored contacts so you can see how you'd look with a different eye color. The options are endless, whether you prefer natural-looking lenses or bright-colored lenses. Natural-colored lenses give people with brown eyes the chance to see themselves with blue or green eyes for the first time ever. Natural lenses also give people with pale eye colors the opportunity to see how they'd look with darker eyes that potentially provide a little more mystery and intrigue.


Experimentation doesn't have to end there, though. You can get even more playful with bright-colored contact lenses that are far from natural. Contact lenses in colors like purple, red, pink, yellow, and green are available to use outside of costume-centered holidays like Halloween. When you experiment with colored contacts, you'll discover which colors compliment you best.

Use dark black eyeliner for a smudged look

Some makeup lovers absolutely adore clean-cut eyeliner that's been drawn out in pristine lines. Others prefer to go for a more smudged look in order to make an edgier statement.

You can achieve glamorous-looking eyes if you apply some dark black eyeliner and smudge the lines a bit. It'll look messy, yet equally fabulous. There's nothing unattainable about the perfectly imperfect look if you're willing to take the time and have a little patience. 


Smudged eyeliner is beyond stylish to wear, depending on where you're headed for the night. You'll start off with traditional winged eyeliner before blending and smudging the makeup to your desired level. You can use an eyeshadow brush or your finger, whatever is easier for you. There's an art to keeping your smudged eyeliner separate from whatever eyeshadow colors you add if you're doing a full face of makeup.

Choose a winged eyeliner style based on your eye shape

Since every face is different, everyone has different facial features to admire. No one has two eyes that are exactly the same, either. That being said, it's important to narrow down your winged eyeliner style based on the shape of your eyes. Just because one specific winged eyeliner style looks amazing on your sister, mother, or friend, doesn't mean it will look equally wonderful on you. 


Some people have downturned eyes while others have round eyes. Some folks have monolid eyes while others have hooded eyes. If you have smaller almond-shaped eyes, you're probably going to apply your winged eyeliner a lot differently than someone whose eyes appear to be more oval-shaped.

Once you've figured out where your eye shape falls on the spectrum, it's up to you to decipher which winged style gives your eyes the chance to stand out in the best possible way.

Apply lash thickening mascara

Mascara is an easy go-to item that belongs in everyone's makeup bag. Mascara is the one piece of makeup you can rely on to give your natural lashes maximum length and volume. When the rest of the makeup on your face is complete, including foundation, blush, and lipstick, you'll probably notice that something is missing if you haven't applied any mascara yet. 


If you're hoping to achieve the most glamorous eyes ever with the help of mascara, you'll want to start off with clean lashes. Next, you'll choose a mascara brand that suits you best and apply the product to the lashes on your upper lid and bottom lid. Some mascara brands are cheaply made with ingredients that won't do you any justice. Choosing a mascara brand that will actually give your lashes a thickened boost is a must. Some of the most popular mascara brands include L'Oréal, Essence, Glossier, and Maybelline.

Apply faux strip lashes

Mascara simply doesn't get the job done for everyone who wants to achieve a more glamorous, dramatic, and intense appearance. Sometimes, faux lashes are an absolute necessity. Applying faux strip lashes at home is the easier option, compared to the alternative. If you go to a lash studio to get individual lashes applied, you'll probably end up waiting two or three hours for the entire service to be complete. On top of that, you'll end up spending hundreds of dollars getting your lashes filled in as you try to maintain the allure. 


Strip lashes, on the contrary, only take a couple of minutes to be applied. They can be as cheap as $5 from drugstores, convenience stores, and beauty stores.

When you're getting ready to apply your photo strip lashes, you have to make sure that the lash glue has slightly started to dry to the point of becoming sticky. Once it reaches that point, the lashes won't slide around on your eye, and will easily stay in place when you press them down.

Use an eyelash curler on natural lashes

You can make sure that your natural lashes look beyond fabulous without applying a lick of mascara or a pair of faux lashes. The way you can pull this off is by using an eyelash curler on your natural lashes to bend them upward and show off their length. Some people have lashes that are naturally straight, sticking forward without any curl. Other people have lashes that are naturally way too curly, caving over onto themselves without much visibility. 


Either way, an eyelash curler will work wonders to bring your natural lashes to a glorious height, making them easier for others to see without having to add any additional products or makeup to the mix.

When using an eyelash curler, you'll have to clamp the device over your lashes from the base. You'll want to hold down for about 20 to 30 seconds without accidentally squeezing any sensitive eyelid skin around the area.

Use colorful eyeliner and mascara options

Eyeliner and mascara can be playful, especially when you're experimenting with different colors from the rainbow. Colorful mascara and eyeliner are available in whatever shade tickles your fancy, including pink, teal, blue, purple, and orange. For instance, if you decide to wear a lime green dress, you can make a bold statement by applying lime green mascara or eyeliner too.


Instead of feeling like you're stuck in a box when it comes to matching your accessories with the clothing you're wearing, you can start matching your eyeliner and mascara to your accessories and clothes. 

The best thing about wearing colorful mascara and eyeliner is that it's a fun and exciting trend that works well with every eye color out there. This trend isn't reserved for people who already have bright blue or green eyes. Those with darker eyes have the chance to show off a more glamorous look based on how bright they choose to go with their makeup color choices.

Apply lash-lengthening serum

The best way to get the ball rolling on the growth of your natural eyelashes is to start applying lash-lengthening serum on a daily basis. When your natural lashes are long enough all on their own, you certainly won't feel pressured to add faux lashes or mascara to your makeup routine. Having naturally long lashes is something to be proud of, and it's easier to achieve when you use lash-lengthening serums that are dedicated to helping you achieve your goals. 


Luxurious lashes are made possible when you use FDA-approved serums that are filled with active ingredients that prevent breakage and keep your lashes as strong as possible. Some incredible brands to consider include Hairburst Lash & Brow Enhancing Serum, e.l.f. Enhancing Lash & Brow Serum, and Elizabeth Arden Prevage Clinical Lash + Brow Enhancing Serum. 

The Lash Professional notes that if you're using a powerful lash serum consistently, you'll start to see results after about four to six weeks. You might even start seeing results after the first 14 days. This is a simpler option to consider compared to something as dramatic as lash transplant surgery.

Have fun with eyeshadow

Eyeliner and mascara can't be the only makeup items to get all of the attention when it comes to making your eyes look as glamorous as possible. Having fun with eyeshadow is also a necessity since eyeshadow can completely change the dynamic of your makeup routine. Eyeshadow is arguably one of the easier makeup items to skip on the list since you'll still look divine with just eyeliner and mascara. Still, eyeshadow deserves its clout. 


The History of Cosmetics explains that eyeshadow has been around since ancient Egypt when people were using ash, burned almond residue, and oxidized copper (among other things) to add a little bit of extra flair to their eyelids. Eyeshadow has been able to stand the test of time for a reason. It adds a burst of excitement and style to your makeup look, whether you're headed to an office meeting or a holiday party.

When you go all out with eyeshadow, you have the power to blend as many colors together as you see fit. You can also keep things simple by choosing one color that looks amazing on you.

Use revitalizing under-eye cream

Without the help of revitalizing eye cream, it might not be very easy to de-puff any dark circles you're experiencing under your eyes. Revitalizing eye cream can work wonders when you consistently apply the right product to the dark circles or puffy areas that sag underneath your eyes. The reason revitalizing under-eye cream is such a winning product is that it promotes smoother and brighter skin around your eyes by bringing refreshing hydration to the driest surfaces. 


Since moisture is being added to the contour of the under eye, it also helps to reduce the appearance of any bags and darkness you might have. Adding a couple of dabs of revitalizing under-eye cream beneath your eyes is a simple way to make sure that your eyes look glamorous, youthful, and energetic all the time. This is a hugely beneficial step that adds no more than an extra minute or two to your beauty regimen.

Opt for contacts instead of glasses

If you're someone who doesn't naturally have 20/20 vision, then you've probably had to make the decision between wearing glasses or contacts many times throughout your life. When you are trying to achieve the most glamorous eyes ever, it makes the most sense to opt for contact lenses instead of glasses.


The simple reason for this is that it's way more glamorous for your eyes to be perfectly visible instead of hidden away behind a pair of glasses. Park Slope Eye explains that there are several other benefits that come along with wearing contact lenses each day. 

They give you a more natural look, they don't obstruct your vision, they don't catch unwanted reflections, and they provide you with an entire field of focused views wherever you look. This is incredibly important for athletes, drivers, and people who use their eyes every day to make a living. On top of that, contact lenses don't fog up the way glasses do when you're wearing a mask or working out at the gym. Putting contacts in your eyes each morning is a simple task since it only takes a couple of minutes to do after thoroughly washing your hands.


If you do choose to wear glasses, make sure they suit your eye shape

Some people simply can't wear contacts. If contacts dry your eyes out or give you headaches, you shouldn't force yourself to suffer. If contacts just aren't for you, and you know that glasses are more your vibe, all you have to do is make sure that the glasses you choose suit your eye shape. Glasses are designed with several different frame styles, which means you don't have to settle for anything that doesn't pair well with your facial features or eye shape. 


Some of the popular frame styles you've probably seen include cat eye, totally clear, oversized with chains, thick-rimmed geometric frames, and translucent, nude frames. Vintage glasses, oversized square glasses, perfectly round circular glasses, and bedazzled frames are also available.

You'll want to narrow down the right glasses for you in the same way you'd pay attention to your eye shape when choosing which style of winged eyeliner to rock.

Apply a cold compress under your eyes

Having dark circles under your eyes is a surefire way to lose out on a glamorous appearance. Unfortunately, it's beyond easy to get stuck with dark circles under your eyes. If you go to sleep too late, wake up too early, or feel forced to face necessary obligations when you'd rather be relaxing, dark circles might creep up under your eyes. Applying a cold compress under your eyes to prevent those pesky dark circles is one of the most helpful things you can do. 


Applying a cold compress helps reduce any swelling you might be experiencing. The cold compress will also work to shrink all of the dilated blood vessels underneath your eyes, which cause the appearance of dark circles and puffiness.

Making the perfect cold compress is easy enough because all you'll need is a handful of ice cubes wrapped up in a fresh washcloth. To truly see the effects of a cold compress, Healthline suggests applying your wrapped ice cubes (or dampened washcloth) for 20 minutes.

Use DIY recipes to fight crow's feet wrinkles

Fighting back against wrinkles is different for everyone based on their age range. Teenagers and people in their early 20s might not be too concerned about wrinkles yet, but wrinkles are certainly capable of forming by the time you reach the age of 25. If you're concerned that the appearance of crow's feet on the sides of your face are taking away from the true glamor of your eyes, you can try out different DIY home remedies in order to fight back against those fine lines. 


Some of the most popular natural ingredients you can use against the wrinkles surrounding your eyes include egg whites, aloe vera, coconut oil, lemon exfoliators, cucumber slices, honey, and yogurt (per Rao Dermatology). These ingredients are easy to find at any grocery store and can be combined to create wrinkle-fighting recipes.

DIY recipes to fight crow's feet wrinkles are thought of as the simple beauty option, because the main alternative is quite drastic –– costly and time-consuming Botox appointments.

Press soaked tea bags against closed eyes

There are so many health benefits that come into play when you think about tea. Instead of considering tea as nothing more than a beverage to sip, it's time to think about using soaked tea bags to avoid dark circles under your eyes.


If you want to take things a step further beyond ice cubes wrapped in a washcloth for a simple cold compress, you can soak two black or green tea bags in hot water for about five minutes to use on your under-eye circles instead. 

Once the tea bags are finished soaking in hot water, let them cool down in your fridge for 15 to 20 minutes. As soon as they're cold, feel free to press them against your closed eyes for about 10 to 20 minutes. According to Healthline, tea bags make such a difference in reducing under-eye circles because tea is filled with antioxidants and caffeine. These are prime ingredients that you can depend on to stimulate blood circulation, reduce liquid buildup, and reduce the visibility of your blood vessels.


Protect your eyes from dry air and direct sunlight

Glamorous eyes aren't parched and dry. If your eyes are feeling so dried out that you feel the need to blink all the time or constantly squirt in eye drops, you might be spending too much time in direct sunlight.


The easiest way to keep your eyes looking glamorous and feeling healthy is by protecting them from dry air and direct sunlight. Two fashionable accessories to have whenever you know you're going to be spending time in the sun include sunglasses and sun hats. Sunglasses and sun hats are both considered protective gear since they keep your eyes shielded from harsh UV rays.

Soaking up the sun at the beach, at the pool, or during a hike should be an enjoyable and memorable experience. Unfortunately, the fun disappears quickly if your eyes are feeling way too dry. Keeping your eyes away from direct sunlight and spending time in places where there is a normal amount of moisture in the air is the smartest route to take.


Use beauty filters on social media

With popular social media apps like Instagram, TikTok, and Snapchat ready and available for everyone to use, tons of people are fully aware of how much fun they can have with different filters. Beauty filters are super popular among those who want to snap attractive selfies or videos without having to do a full face of makeup every single time. Some of the options are even specifically labeled "beauty filter" so you know exactly what you're getting. 


This is great news for anyone who wants to make sure that their eyes look glamorous anytime they share new content online. Some beauty filters go above and beyond making normal eyes look wider or more sparkly than they naturally are. There are even options to change your eye color entirely if you'd rather test out a different eye color without splurging on physical colored contacts. Go wild!

Take selfies in the right lighting

There's no denying that posing for pictures in different locations will yield different results based on the lighting around you. If you have natural sunlight pouring in from your bedroom window, your pictures will look a lot different than if you were taking your pictures in a poorly lit room. If you have LED lights, fluorescent lights, or incandescent lights shining down on you inside your home, your pictures will undoubtedly turn out differently than they would if you were posing on your front porch. 


Kylie Jenner is a prime example of a celebrity who knows how to use different light sources and angles to her advantage. In many of her typical red carpet shots taken by professional photographers, she appears to have deep brown eyes. But in some of her close-up selfies where she's posed in front of a window with sunlight on her face, her eyes look a lot lighter, brighter, and more hazel-colored. Try it and see how your selfies change!

Press your lashes with a spoon

Spoons don't need to be reserved for the next time you're about to enjoy a bowl of ice cream or soup. Now, consider using spoons during your makeup routine. Spoons can pump up the appearance of your mascara, making your lashes look even longer and more voluminous than before. Flip your spoon toward you and place the center over the roots of your lashes. Gently and carefully use the spoon to pull toward your forehead in an upward direction on your lid. 


When you do that, your lash roots become more exposed, making your lashes appear as if they have a little more length. The main thing you'll want to be careful with when trying this hack is not accidentally poking yourself in the eye with your spoon. You also don't want to drag your lashes up too hard and accidentally tear some of them out. Using a spoon to help lengthen the appearance of your lashes will save you money if you don't want to purchase an eyelash curler.
