Over the summer you may have been squinting a bit more in the sun, so fall is the time to start treating the damaged area around your eyes. Eye skin is very delicate and has different needs than the rest of your face, so you need a product designed especially for eyes. New Divine EYESfrom L’Occitane is formulated with organic essential oils and extracts to fight all the signs of aging on the fine skin around the eyes. It’s silky, highly potent and made from two of nature’s most powerful, everlasting flowers, Myrtle and Immortelle and its part of a whole line of new products. $70 for 0.5 oz. (15ml) at L’Occitane boutiques nationwide or at usa.loccitane.com.
Trendy eye shadows for this season include icy metallics and bold jewel tones to gorgeous shimmers and smoky blacks and grays.
But if you need vision correction, applying eye makeup is a lot easier if you wear contacts, like 1 Day ACUVUE TruEye. It’s the first and only daily disposable contact lens made out of silicone hydrogel, a material that provides the ultimate in eye health and comfort and helps keep eyes looking naturally white and healthy, because its unique material allows eyes to breath freely throughout the day.
