When I think of the best days, my eyes are bright and shining. Some makeup is the finishing touch… as the shining brightness starts first from within! When my eyes are not bright and shining, there are a few holistic things that I do immediately…
- shower with some eucalyptus essential oil sprinkled on the floor tiles.
- drink a kale or other nutrient-dense green smoothie
- write out all that’s concerning me on a piece of paper
- smile in the mirror
- & sleep an extra hour or two if possible!
Of course, there are allergies, puff-inducing foods and stress that can be in the way of a sparkle… but that sparkle is waiting for you to emerge bright & shining.
When your eyes are sparkling bright, there’s a certain magnetic pull that can’t be beat. I notice that after a long time in prayer or on spiritual trips my eyes become almost crystal. There’s a lot to be said for happiness… it is beautifying!
Now… to brighten your eyes with makeup (a *must* finishing touch for me, super-enlivening!) the best way is always the natural and non-irritating way! Skincare guru and celebrity makeup artist Chantal Moore today shares special pots of sparkling mineral-based eye magic to light up your makeup routine.
From Chantal: “I’ve been using these pure pigment, multidimensional cream mineral eye shadows (and base primer in one) on set non stop and I’ve really been enjoying them. The shade collection is gorgeous.
Some favorites (pictured in a row) : Satin, Cashmere and Suede.
Whether I’m creating a light, soft wash of color over the eye lid or creating a rich deep smoky eye, Pur Eye Polish delivers buildable, blendable, rich color that stays in place.
