The subject of using eye cream is a fickle thing. It’s been constantly debated about – whether or not it’s really needed – since it first came out in the market. But over here at Clozette, we advocate its use as we can see remarkable differences every time we dab a little bit on our eye area.

If you’re thinking that you don’t have to worry about using eye cream until you’re at least 30, well, we have news for you. You don’t use eye cream once the tiny crow’s feet are already there; you use it to prevent them. Because in the world of anti-aging, it’s best to “start young to stay young.”

Still hesitant to spend a little moolah on eye cream? Then keep reading below for the 5 reasons why you should already start using it; plus, our favourite eye products that you ought to try out!

--------------------------


It will keep early signs of wrinkles at bay

We don’t want to sound like a broken record, but when it comes to anti-aging, prevention really is key. Which is why you’re in luck because you don’t have to spend a ton of cash to get amazing results! The L’Oreal Revitalift Laser X3 Eye Cream is a 3-in-1 product that diminishes lines, reduces eye puffiness, and tightens up the eye area.

--------------------------


Give yourself a mini facial

Eye creams contain potent ingredients, allowing it to penetrate deeper into your skin to give you that hydrated, glowing, and youthful look. So if you’re looking to give your eye area a luxurious treatment every day, look no further than the Benefit Firm It Up! Eye Serum. A tiny dab of this lightweight cream will instantly brighten and smooth out your undereye area!


--------------------------


Concealer will apply easily & smoothly

One of the best ways to avoid concealer from creasing is to apply eye cream underneath it. Why? It hydrates the area to avoid that dry and cakey look, and it smoothes over any lines you might have; making it the perfect canvas. 

One of the best products that'll do all that for you is the Tony Moly Panda’s Dream So Cool Eye Stick. Housed in a cute and travel-friendly container, this multi-tasking eye stick will cool your delicate eye area to reduce puffiness, as well as hydrate and minimise the appearance of fine lines! You won't have to worry about your base products creasing once you put this underneath it!


--------------------------


Look more refreshed and awake

Since eye creams revitalise your eye area, you will instantly look refreshed and awake! So even if you’ve only had a few hours of sleep, dabbing a little bit of it can make the world of a difference. Our product of choice? None other than the Pixi 24k Eye Elixir! This easy-to-use eye serum is infused with collagen to massage away dullness and tone the skin.


--------------------------


Wave ‘bye-bye’ to eye bags

Sadly, dark circles have a tendency to be genetic. But the silver lining is that eye bags, on the other hand, aren’t. Which is why eye cream, specifically the Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream, is the ultimate must-have if you find yourself constantly suffering from puffy eyes as this coffee and ginseng-infused product rapidly refreshes tired eyes and restores its radiance to give you that 'awake' look.

There's something about 2016 that spurred a lot of outrageously fantastic trends that continuously please our aesthetics. From everything galaxy to rainbows galore, who would've thought that our childhood fantasies of playing princess and unicorns would unfold right before our eyes?

But as much as we want to embrace every single one of these trends that our 6-year-old self would probably try out with no hesitation, some of these trends are easier to look at than to try out.

So if you're one of us who's contented with letting the brave ones take on the beauty industry's amazingly bold trends, sit back and relax as we recap the beauty looks we love to feast our eyes on but may never try.

--------------------------

Unicorn hair

We absolutely love the creativity that comes with the idea of unicorn hair. But we have to admit that it can be a little high maintenance and some of us just don't have that kind of luxury. Bleaching and dyeing your hair with this amount of colour takes a lot bravery and effort that not all of us can keep up with. Still, we have to admit that every time we see someone who has the confidence and the patience to pull off this trend, our inner-unicorn princess loving self can't help but turn green with envy. 
--------------------------

Glitter roots

If we decide to opt out of the unicorn hair trend because it's high maintenance, this trend is supposed to be the "low maintenance" version of it. We all know how expensive hair dye touch ups can be and this glimmering alternative that aims to cover up your roots is undeniably pretty. But still, it can be a whole lot messy and a little too hard to wash off. So we're loving the glam, but we'll leave it to the glitterbugs. 


--------------------------

Gold lips

Ever since Kylie Jenner made metal mattes a major beauty trend, it was everywhere! From brands coming up with their own metal matte line to DIY hacks that aims to achieve this specific lippie finish, we can't help but be in awe of the glamorous vibe it gives off. But gold is not exactly the most wearable colour. 

Plus, high-end or not, liquid lipsticks need constant looking after to avoid flaking after hours of wear. So a gold lip may be great for taking photos but we can't afford gold flecks all over our teeth as we party all night. We'll probably brush up on our liquid lippie skills first and maybe someday we'll try this out-- emphasis on the MAYBE.


--------------------------

Galaxy face
A Snapchat-filter that came to life, it's no wonder why this beauty trend became such a huge thing! With pastels and stars in mind, we can't help but scroll endlessly on the IG tag dedicated to this hipster-inspired trend. But as pretty as this look might be, not everyone has the time and effort to achieve this painting-like finish. So again, thanks, but we'll just keep on looking!


--------------------------

Rainbow brows
Some of us still can't get shaping and filling in right and now you're telling us that we have to blend in various colours in the mix too? It's one thing to get your brows on fleek, but it's a whole new business to have it in rainbow colours. Just like the other trends that made this list, this beauty look may be #goals, but it's not for everyone. So we'll keep on practicing with our brow pomades for now and we'll let the experts live on the rainbow dream.

We've all had moments when mornings make it hard to put on makeup. And cramming everything into our purses just to get our MOTD essentials fit our on-the-go lifestyle is too much of a hassle. But what if there's an easier, fuss-free way to change the way you do makeup?

This month, Etude House has introduced their new Play 101 Blending Pencils that will make you say goodbye to overstocked and bulky makeup pouches forever. This highly pigmented, multi-purpose blending pencil can be used on both small and wide areas of the face as a base, eyeshadow, blusher, and lip colour! With 25 shades to choose from, get ready to mix, match, and blend different colours to play up your makeup look. 




Formulated with multi-porous powder that has excellent oil absorption power, the Play 101 Blending Pencil also keeps skin matte by absorbing sebum and softly melts onto the skin for a natural finish. It also comes in four types of textures -- creamy, velvet, jelly, and jewel -- all of which give a powder-shadow finish that's completely smudge-proof, long-lasting, and lightweight. Both creamy and jewel textures are also waterproof. 

So what are you waiting for? Change the way you do your makeup with Etude House's Play 101 Blending Pencils.
