Old Hollywood celebrities have been known to go the extra length for the sake of vanity. This latest secret no matter how scary and crazy sounding it is, is actually quite painless and would pay off in the long run…
Elizabeth Taylor has one of the most famous pair of eyes and one of the whitest if we might add. According to legendary makeup artist, chemist, and Gállány beauty founder Ida Gàl-Csiszar, Taylor swore by whiter-than-white sclera for her trademark stare. Her secret? A super deep indigo eyeshadow. “She wouldn’t leave home without pressing that shadow into her upper membrane,” says Gàl-Csiszar.…
Here are a few trips gleaned from her…
Try the cold spoon trick
A chilled spoon relaxes capillaries that may be expanded so, massage a teaspoon of olive oil into the undereyes, then take a large spoon (which you’ve cooled with ice or in the freezer) and place it underneath your eyes to get rid of puffiness.
When it comes to beauty sleep, sleeping with your head elevated reduces pressure on the eye, thus lessens the chance of inflamed puffy eyes and dark circles in the morning.
Use a blue-black mascara
When it comes to accentuating the whites of your eyes, Gàl-Csiszar says blue-black is the best eye whitener. “Blue is on the opposite side of the color wheel and balances a red eye,” she says.
Use a nude eyeliner
Smudging flesh-toned liner on your waterlines will whiten your eyes and neutralize redness, brightening them up in the process.
Try a deep indigo shadow
As mentioned earlier, a deep navy blue counteracts redness. If you want to make like Liz, opt for an indigo shadow.
Use eye drops
Eye Drops are the gold standard for beauty insiders, ensuring that your peepers are thoroughly moisturized while reducing I-only-got-three-hours-of-sleep-last-night redness.
