Your eyes reveal secrets that you don’t wish to share, like excess wine from the previous evening, sleepless nights due to children, or corporate burn out. I’ve found exciting products and services that will help your eyes, and the area around them, look fresh and youthful regardless of how you spend your days and nights.
Pick up the latest issue of BELLA NYC Magazine and BELLA Long Island Magazine for Pam’s Picks on beauty tips for youthful eyes.
I already raved about 1-DAY ACUVUE DEFINE Brand Contact Lenses back in December. This is a new category of eye enhancement lenses that have iris-inspired designs that create an outer darker limbal ring, to give eyes greater definition by creating contrast between the iris and white part of your eye. Additionally, an inner translucent light-effects pattern is layered over the iris to add depth and definition without changing the eye’s natural color. FYI Independent research shows that people are more attracted to women and men with pronounced limbal rings, which are associated with a healthy and youthful appearance. I switched out my old lenses for 1-DAY ACUVUE DEFINE Brand Contact Lenses, and I’m a squint short of looking like Angelina Jolie. Ok, maybe, not Angie, but I’m a better version of me. What can I say, beauty is addictive.

With two babies born in two years, I know firsthand what lack-of-sleep can do to the delicate skin under your eyes. My secret to looking alive and fabulous even during those hectic, first months was Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Eye Serum. I live for this product because the results are almost instantaneous. The Vitamin K helps reduce the appearance of dark circles and puffiness that resulted from the evening’s shenanigans. This is a beauty game changer and something I share regular on Instagram because you ALL need it!!! $72
The quickest, pain-free facelift can be achieved with perfect brows. That’s why a lovely, Russian woman in Brooklyn has been waxing my brows since I was 16-years-old. But, now, I’ve made the switch to threading after being bowled over by the artisans, and the spa-like feel, at WINK Brow Bar. Using organic thread, my brows were gently sculpted in 10-minutes. I walked out without redness, and feeling very glamourous, and high-brow. Stop agitating, pulling and aging your skin with wax or tweezers, and give your brows a beautiful break and shape. For added indulgence, don’t forget to try their Lash Bar and Makeup Bar, as well as the Face Bar which uses luxurious Isabelle Lancray products.
