My Two Favorite Eye Creams for Bridal Makeup Prep:

August 30, 2017

Just a dab of eye cream can make a big difference in the appearance of dark, puffy, tired looking under eyes.  But, there are two five-star eye creams I use on Brides that are designed for high impact results. They instantly brighten dark under eyes, making them look fresh and more rested, while plumping away fine lines and priming for makeup application. These top two eye creams are ideal for Brides to use during the months leading up to their big day, and to wear as long lasting primers under their Bridal makeup application.

1) Hydrating Eye Cream, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, $52.
This light-weight eye cream comforts, plumps and preps your eye area for concealer application and can be worn at night on the upper and lower lid to condition, brighten and soften the eye area both instantly and over time. Anyone who wants a flawless finish with their concealer can use this eye cream as a 24 hour primer that quickly absorbs and melts into the skin.

2) Extra Eye Repair Cream, Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, $74.
This rich, concentrated eye cream targets skin’s aging by boosting collagen production, smoothing fine lines, brightening dark circles and helping to repair the skin’s moisture barrier with peptides, natural plant oils and humectants.  Anyone looking to zero in on signs of aging and give their skin extra hydration for instant freshness, plumping and firming and preparation for concealer will love this eye cream!  It can be worn at night on the upper and lower lid to help improve the appearance of the eye area instantly and over time.  The more you use it the more it works!

In order to make the eye area look fresh, well-rested and less tired, it’s important to treat yourself to products that improve the appearance of your skin even without the use of makeup on top.  The best eye creams can sooth puffiness, brighten darkness and soften fine lines and wrinkles all while priming for makeup application.  Use them consistently twice a day and follow the instructions on the box for best results leading up to your Wedding Day!  Cheers to brighter, fresher looking under eyes!

Hydrating Eye Cream, A cult favorite for priming the under eye area.
Extra Eye Repair Cream, A best seller for targeting signs of aging.
