Of course, whatever look you achieve does not change your essential personality but it can be exciting and fun to slip into a different you for an evening out or special occasion.
The eyes are not called the ´windows into the soul´ without good reason; they do give a first impression of the type of person you are especially on making new acquaintances.

Others may recognize that you have created an outstanding effect by the clever application of makeup on and around your eyes.
The effect you can cause may not be suitable for the day job, lunch with the in laws, or Sunday church, but the men in your life are going to appreciate that deep, mysterious look in the appropriate situations.
That we can leave to your imagination.
Achieving those Mesmerizing Eyes
The first step is to make sure that the whites of your eyes are as clear as they can be.
Smoky atmospheres are about the biggest cause of bloodshot red-rimmed eyes followed by reading and close work in poor light causing eyestrain.
Readily obtainable are ophthalmic eye drops that assist in keeping eyes clear and sparkling white so you can use them as part of your regular beauty program
The effect we are aiming for is to make the eyes as compelling as possible and to do that we need to contrast those bright whites against dark lids and black lashes.
- Smudge kohl on the upper and lower lids and use jet black mascara on lashes.
- To further highlight the eyes, false or lash extensions will enhance the effect and don’t forget to curl those lashes.
For the first few times you will probably want to experiment a little to get the best effect so allow yourself plenty of make up time until you get familiar with exactly the right look you want to captivate your friends and admirers.
Always keep in mind that it is the contrasting effect of intense black shadow surrounding the whites of the eyes that creates the mesmerizing look and as a bonus highlights the blue, brown or green color of the iris.
