Earthly Remedy’s for Swollen Eye’s.

Use items you already have in the kitchen to fix puffy eyes in just ten minutes.


  1. Place a cooling agent on your eyes. Wrap a bag of frozen vegetables in a thin towel (you want to be able to feel the cold through it). Place it over closed eyes for 10 minutes. (Keep your head upright so gravity has a chance to help remove the fluid you’re retaining.)

    Tip: Another way to reduce puffiness: Soak a washcloth in cold chamomile tea and place it on your eyes for 10 minutes. The anti-inflammatory properties in chamomile will help reduce the puff.

    Tip: The old tried-and-true cucumber trick works, too. Place cold cucumber slices (put them in the freezer for a few minutes) over your eyes for 10 minutes.

Follow these tips and you will feel a lot better. Eyes can become swollen or have dark circles due to allergies, lack of sleep, aging, and exposure to daily pollutants. Using a hot compress on your eyes can reduce swelling, increase the blood flow to this sensitive area, and even provide relief from sinus pain. You can make your own hot compress to get the benefits of a spa treatment in the comfort of your own home. Fill a clean basin with hot water. You can add essential oils like lavender or eucalyptus for aromatherapy and skin rejuvenating benefits. Choose a soft washcloth or small terry cloth towel. Soak it in the basin of water and wring out excess water. Fold the cloth to the appropriate size and to keep the heat within the folds.

Apply the washcloth compress to eyes for ten minutes. Remove for ten minutes and soak the towel again, applying on and off for ten-minute intervals.

I Prefer Concealers Than Primers For The Eyeshadows



I was doing makeup on a client just the other day. And she brought in her palette of Urban Decay.  She had asked me if I would use the product for her photo-shoot and to give her a few pointers on the usage of the product and what brushes to use. I have never used Urban Decay products before but I have heard that they all flake a lot. And true to assumption it is true.

Orlando makeup

The Urban Decay product came with a primer and I never use primers on the eyes I always use concealers for the eyes.  I don’t like to layer too much product on the eyes, so I feel its best to use the concealer. I applied the concealer to the eye lid and also the under neath of the eye and I started applying the Urban Decay Shadow to the eyes and it immediately started to flake.  Horrible product to use.


Using a concealer on the lids and bottom eye-lid lets me cancel out any blue, red tones, dark spots on the lid or under the eyes. Plus I can also evenly take away any flaking from the shadows easily with makeup remover and then reapply the concealer to the lower lid.  I recommend MAC Pro Long Wear Concealer. Works every time for me.
