Look into my eyes!
Look into
my eyes!

Our eyes hold all our emotions. Joy, sadness, fear, surprise, love—eyes are like an open book telling the story of our lives. With the first glance, looking at someone speaks volumes about our mood and personality.

No matter what colour your eyes are, accentuating them is the first step to becoming a woman. Putting on eye makeup is the first beauty enhancement we make during our teen years. Intensifying our eyes with a single stroke of eyeliner, darkening the lids, adding some brightly coloured shadow, or dressing them up with stylish makeup—your eyes hold immense seductive powers.

Look into my eyes!
Anything can happen in the blink of an eye!

Stretch your lashes to the extreme, plump them up with gravity-defying volume, intensify, play up, beautify, etc. Caring for your eyes takes all the beauty tricks in the book. Nothing should outshine your look, and imperfections are not allowed.

So, say goodbye to puffy eyes and dark circles!

Our Clarins experts share all their pro tips for getting gorgeous eyes (without plastic surgery) with lots of smart hacks and no holding back. Take a look at the Clarins special eye area product line and its latest can’t-miss additions ;)

01 What causes dark circles and puffiness under the eyes?

What causes dark circles and puffiness under the eyes?

The skin around the eyes is much thinner than on the rest of the face, and therefore highly sensitive. Signs of aging or fatigue show up through dark circles and undereye bags.

Unsightly dark circles appear on your face when you're stressed, extremely tired, went to bed late or didn't sleep well. They are noticeable on the lower lids and make you look sluggish.

Bags under the eyes are caused by an accumulation of water and fat. It looks like a swollen pouch under your eyes. Alcohol, tobacco, and lack of sleep can lead to water retention.

Some lifestyle changes and targeted skincare can wipe those bags and circles right off your face! Improve your health and get rid of these beauty robbers once and for all!

02 Why should I use Clarins special eye area skincare?
