Eye Cream Or Eye Gel – Which is Best For You?

There are so many varieties of anti-wrinkle products and eye care products in the market, add that with the confusion of which kind of consistency to use, and you’ve got yourself a total question mark on your head.

To subtract one of the perplexities of skin care and youthful glow, there is one issue that is rarely addressed, but has always been at the back of the mind when thinking of purchasing an anti-wrinkle cream, or anti-wrinkle gel at that. So, should you wrinkle cream, or wrinkle gel?

Actually, you may use a cream, or a gel, it all depends on your skin type, age, and eye problems. So read on and choose which is best for you.

Gels are:

  1. Best for younger skin- It is not as rich as creams, and since younger skin tends to be more oily than more mature skin, it would be advised for the younger generation with eye problems.
  2. More soothing for tired eyes
  3. More cooling than creams
  4. Ideal for reducing puffiness- It is more soothing and cooling as already mentioned, and the key to reducing puffiness is to soothe and cool the area around the eye.
  5. Leaves less residue
  6. Best for morning applications- It is less oily, and has less chances of smudging or leaving residue than creams.
  7. Easier for make-up application- Eye gels tend to be absorbed faster than eye creams, so if you’re a woman on the go, the fast absorption makes it easier for you to do your morning face rituals.
  8. Leaves a temporary tightening effect- Aside from the long term benefits, another reason which makes eye gels ideal for morning applications is that it also leaves a temporary tightening effect which leaves you looking fresh and younger as you go out in the day.
  9. Less likely to cause milia- Ideally, gels are lighter and have less chances of clogging your pores, making black heads and milia less chances to occur.

The given may give all the votes to gels, but, eye creams also give out their own wondrous effects.

Creams are:

  1. More nourishing and moisturizing- Creams contain more ingredients that moisturize the skin more effectively than cream
  2. Best for fine lines reduction- The moisturizing effect in eye creams eventually leaves aging skin with fine lines better than before. It contains emollients that nourishes the skin and plumps up the area to eliminate the fine lines.
  3. Better for dry skin
  4. Best for mature skin- Dry and mature skin need more oil to improve its health. Wrinkle creams have the right formulation to treat eye problems that are brought about by dry or more mature skin.

How to Do Letter ‘V’ Technique For Perfect Eyes Every Time

Ever saw someone’s eye makeup and wondered just how did they do it? Eyes with an perfect ‘V’ using only two colors? It’s not as hard as you may think. What you need to create your own perfect eyes using the ‘V’ technique are:

Two coordinating colors ~ one light and one darker

The two coordinating colors are for the ‘V’ for the rest of your eyes to help make this look complete are:

A third color such as a matte white to apply under your brow line to truly open up your eyes.
One blending makeup brush
One basic makeup brush

Your mascara and don’t forget your magic lash! Together they will make your lashes really lush, long and prefect.

Now let’s starting creating your perfect eyes!

1~ Dampen your eye shadow brush slightly, now dip it into the lighter color eye shadow you have chosen, apply a light wash of this color all over the lids and all the way to the brow line.

2~ Now dip your eye shadow brush into the darker color you had chosen and draw a fuzzy line for the center of the lash line (where your pupil is when you are looking straight into the mirror) to the outer corner of your eyes. You are applying it up into the crease. (The shape should look like the letter ‘V’ turned on one end.)

3~ Take your blending brush and blend the entire eye lid to mainly erase any obvious lines but not so much that you take away the ‘V’. It the ‘V’ isn’t dark enough for you add more of the darker shade into the crease and blend it again.

4~ Take your matte white and apply it under your eye brows and blend it into the lighter color that is already there. Be careful when applying your color under your brow line, it can take away from your look if you over do it.

5~ Apply your black mascara, then your magic lash, then your black mascara. The two together will make your lashes long and lush totally finishing off this look, making your eyes totally amazing!

Note: If you must have your eyeliner, be careful because excessive eyeliner will ruin this look.
Also if you apply black eyeliner and it go all the way around your eyes, it will only make your eyes look smaller and that’s not a look you want. Again if you must have your eyeliner then only line the outer rim and don’t apply it to the inner corners. Liquid eyeliner would be the better one to use for this, being it can be applied with a light hand.

Enjoy your look and practice it till you have it down pat to the point it will only take you less than 10 minutes to get your eyes perfect every morning!
