sleeping mattress

Not getting enough sleep can make your eyes feel tired, dry and itchy. Staying up a few hours past your normal bedtime can have many bad effects on your skin.

It will basically make the blood vessels under your eyes more visible. This can cause under eye dark circles which no one wants!

Sleeping will give your eyes the rest needed and it will improve your eyes health.


cucumber eye mask

To make your eyes look brighter, you can try several natural home remedies. My favorites are tea bags and cucumber eye masks.

These are two affordable options that you can easily try at home without spending too much money.
Squeeze out the excess liquid from two used tea bags and chill them in the refrigerator for up to 10 minutes. Apply the tea bags to your closed eyes for 20 minutes and that’s it!

Cucumbers also have an anti-inflammatory effect and they help to treat dark circles. Just leave chilled cucumber on eyes for up to 15 minutes to help reduce the puffiness.

Cucumbers masks also help in hydrating the eye area which works great for people with dry skin!


eye massager

Regular eye massage increase blood circulation and helps reducing dark circles. Since the eye area is thin and delicate, you should be careful not to drag the skin.

The best way to do it is by tapping gently around the eye area.
Another way is to use an eye massager. These devices can be a little bit expensive and I don’t think they are a must have.

It’s just a fancy way to massage your eyes without so much effort. The one I like is the PLEEZBODY Eye Massager . It helps reducing eye puffiness and wrinkles.


eye creams

Applying a good eye cream is a very important step in your skincare routine. Search for a hydrating eye cream that contains hyaluronic acid, caffeine and antioxidants such as niacinamide. These ingredients can help aging eyes look bigger too.

There are so many luxurious brands that make eye creams with strong fragrances. This is something you should avoid especially if you have sensitive skin.  Fragrance can be irritating and it doesn’t have any benefits for the skin.

This eye cream is one of the best that I’ve used and I loved. It helps brightening the dark circles and it hydrates the under eye area without letting it feel greasy.

This eye cream also has a good ingredient list and a light texture that blends easily into the skin.


Avoid excess salt as too much salt can lead to fluid retention. This can cause puffiness in your eyes as the thin skin under the eyes can get puffy so easily! A balanced and healthy diet will make you feel better and it can absolutely minimize the signs of aging.


revlon eyelash curler

Curling your eye lashes makes your eyes stand out without any makeup. To get the best results, close the curler on all the lashes, turn the curler upwards and squeeze lightly for 20 seconds.

This way you will get a nice and natural curl that helps opening up your eyes. Some of the best eyelash curlers that I’ve tried are the Shu uemura eyelash curler and Shiseido Eyelash curler.


false lashes

If you’ve got some extra time, you can try to wear false eyelashes! They can make your eyes look bigger and rounder immediately. Choosing the best eyelashes for your eye type is a very important step.

If you have hooded eyes, go for short eyelashes that are longer on the middle.If you have round eyes, choose long lashes  with more length towards the outer corner of the eyes.

This will create a beautiful cat eye effect!Ardell makes nice and affordable eyelashes, Huda beauty and velour have more expensive but high quality ones.

Magnetic false eyelashes are also on trend but they require a little bit of practice to know how to put them correctly.   Ardell also make nice and affordable ones.



Avoid over-plucking your eyebrows and go for a natural look instead.  Eyebrows frame the face and they can make your eyes stand out too.

Thick eyebrows are in style and this trick will make your eyebrows appear fuller. You don’t need to draw thick lines and use many eyebrow products to make your eyes look bigger.

Brush your eyebrows upwards using a spoolie or a dry tooth brush.
This trick can add an instant lift to the eyes and it helps framing the face.

Unfortunately, if you have very thin eyebrows, this method might not work for you. You might need to draw your eyebrows with an eyebrow pencil and use a volumizing eyebrow gel to make them look fuller.

If your hairs are a little too long, you can trim the excess hair. Using a tweezer, remove only the tiny hairs underneath your eyebrows and never pluck into the middle of the brow.

Final Thoughts

Making Your Eyes Stand Out even Behind a Face Mask has never been so easy!

These tips and tricks can help your eyes look bigger naturally without makeup.
Sleep better at night, follow a healthy diet and apply some home remedies under your eye area.
Curl your eyelashes and brush your eyebrows up to make your eyes stand out even more.
