Ciao bella,

As Mother Nature takes her toll on our eyes and faces there are just so many "cheats" you can practice to fool someone else's eyes!

Use the real thing by starting off with a very good eye and face cream. Certainly a natural system and not expensive brand is in order. As you all know I am a huge fan of my Skin Care Line - KOSMEA from Australia. Their products are natural, organic - the way nature intended. The New APPLE OF MY EYE CREAM has helped with my under eye problems amazingly! Starting off with a fabulous eye cream is key to keeping your eyes the best they can look. The EIGHTH NATURAL WONDER serum for your face is like a gym in a bottle - helping to tone and even pores and skin tone and minimize fine lines around eyes and face with hibiscus flower extract. Results can be seen immediately!

To create "Younger Looking Eyes" here are a few tips you can practice regularly.

1) Keep your brows in shape by filling in sparse bits and tweezing strays near arch. Use only eyebrow powder (a shade darker than your hair color). Lift up arch. It will be like a mini eye-lift and you'll look more awake.

2) To relieve puffiness pop a teaspoon in the freezer. With back of teaspoon massage swollen areas lightly. Applying moisturizer can plump skin back up.

3) Never use foundation or sparkly shadow on eyes! They tend to show up fine lines and may crease. Only apply primer, which blurs wrinkles.

Primer for your complexion is a must after moisturizer before foundation. You can skip foundation sometimes since Primer hides many imperfections!

4) Dark circles can be magically erased with concealer - a creamy formula to be applied with a brush or pad of your ring finger. Choosing a little lighter than your skin tone is best. A peach tone will neutralize blue circles. A pink tone will neutralize brown ones.

I apply lightly with a brush a very light yellow powder over concealer to brighten eyes - a youthful trick!

So go to your vanity and practice these techniques which work for you for "Younger Looking Eyes"!

Wishing you all a Happy Fall!

Buona giornata and God bless the United States of America!
