Mom Sunday Spa Night: Best Under Eye Mask & other Tips for Brighter Eyes

Hey Mamas,

In honor of tonight’s 90th Annual Academy Awards, I’m glamming up with the best under eye mask and watching the awards show in style.

(Yes, I have a babysitter and my hubby, in order to make this magical evening happen!

And, yes, my daughter is having a nasty temper tantrum and crying from her room while I wrap up this blog post. #MomLife )

But I digress. Here we are Mom Sunday Spa Night!

Grab your glass of Rose, and head to the bathroom vanity, with me, as I share my pick for the best under eye mask, plus my favorite beauty routine for creating red carpet worthy eyes.

Achieving Bolder Brighter Brighter Eyes

Naturopathica Vitamin K Brightening Serum is quite possibly the best thing that happened to me while I was pregnant. It served me well during my months of nursing, and it continues to be a favorite and new #HustleLikeAMom duties prevent the required beauty sleep.

IT Cosmetics Brow Power Pomade helps to lift, sculpt and fortify brows, prepping them into tip top shape. Then, IT’s buddy, IT Cosmetics Brow Power Powder in universal taupe gives a completely natural filling of warm color to the brows. The combo frames the eyes,  and gives you a faux face lift. Yup, IT’s that fabulous.Younger Looking Brighter Eyes Pamela Pekerman

IT Cosmetics Perfect Lighting Radiant Touch Magic Wand is there when you haven’t made time the under eye mask or the brightening serum. Just like magic, the wand corrects all that needs to be corrected (and some days, that’s a heck-of-lot!!), evens out under eye tones and gives that much needed brightness to make eyes look youthful

Beauty by PopSugar is launching March 11st and you will love this thoughtfully crated collection of products, especially Thick+Thin Mascara which gives volume and helps you hit every hair with the right amount of mascara. Then there is that Online Liquid Eye Liner which totally does away with smudging thanks to wickedly smart gliding wheel delivery system. You have to check this one out, mamas! Lastly, the Beauty by PopSugar Eye Shimmer in Out of This World is the perfect glow for day or night functions.

Youthful Eyes in Minutes, Even If You’re a Sleepless Mom, Pamela Pekerman on PIX11 Morning News

I’ve always looked younger than my age. A huge chunk of that is do to amazing genetics – thanks mom. Another part is to good skincare habits – thanks mom. And, a final bit is due to minimal drinking – thanks mom. Wow, mom is awesome.

And, then, I become the mom! SHIT!

Erratic sleeping, constant worrying, breast feeding/pumping. It was starting to take a tole on my face, namely the area around my eyes.

But after 30-years of fabulousness, I wasn’t going to let a gorgeous 6lb baby be the cause of my skincare downfall.

I went into action, hunting down the best ways to not only take care of the delicate skin around my eyes, but also find ways to fake the “bright eyes, bushy tail” look that one has when sleep is so easy to come by.

This morning, I was happy to share some of my favorite finds for Youthful Eyes in Minutes on PIX11 Morning News. Below is a recap, in case you missed it.

Enhance Eye Beauty, 1-Day Acuvue Define Contact Lenses

I’ve never cared to change the color of my eyes, but out of curiosity, I recently attended Johnson & Johnson’s launch of 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Brand Contact Lenses. The promise was that they will “enhance the natural appearance and brightness of the eyes”. The results were eye opening, pun intended!

When I tried 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Brand Contact Lenses I found that they accentuated my eyes and awakened the overall look of my face. Unlike old-school color lenses, these lenses play with the beauty of your existing and unique iris by using iris-inspired designs that have light-effect patterns that add depth and dimension without changing the eye’s natural coloring.

The really awesome part is the clearly defined outline that is created around the iris (aka the limbal ring). Fancy research* shows that people are more attracted to women and men with limbal rings, as limbal rings are associated with a healthy and youthful appearance. I definitely had sparkle in my eyes and extra bounce in my step, following the press event. I’ve since switched my contacts to 1-DAY ACUVUE® DEFINE™ Brand Contact Lenses. What can I say, beauty is addictive.

The lenses are available in three styles: Natural Sparkle, Natural Shimmer and Natural Shine. I’m wearing Natural Shine, which is the most effective option for chocolate, brown eyes. If you have lighter eyes, the effects will be much more dramatic. A box of 30 lenses costs $75. Find out where you can get these lenses at Acuvue.com/define/
