If you’re a Snapchat fan, you’ve probably noticed a trend among a lot of the filters. Whether the effect adds cat ears or a flower crown, a majority of the “cute” or “beautifying” Snapchat filters do a couple of things: they make your eyes bigger, and they add a bit of digital eyeliner to enhance your eyes. For those of you who are diligent about your daily makeup and skincare routine, you may not notice that extra bit of a boost for your eyes, but the next time you’re in for the night and you’ve already washed your face, pay closer attention to those little changes the filters make for your features.


Why the Eyes?

You may have heard that aphorism about how “the eyes are the windows to the soul.” Whether this is true or not is immaterial; when it comes to facial features, one of the best ways to quickly and easily boost your features as a whole is to take a moment to enhance your eyes. Your eyes can be expressive, and convey so much without saying a word, but they’re also a central focal point on your face so, along with your lips, they’re a small feature that can have a big impact on your looks. Adding eyeliner, mascara, or false eyelashes can make your eyes look wider and become more of a focal point in your face—or, if applied inappropriately, can make your eyes look smaller, closed off, and dull. It doesn’t take much effort to swing from one end of the spectrum to the other, unfortunately.


Enhance Your Eyes Easily

Some days, it can feel like there just isn’t enough time to slap some makeup on before rushing out the door. If this happens to you regularly, it may be time for a few time-saving measures. Permanent makeup can be a great option to give your eyes the extra bit of boldness they need to really pop. However, if you’re not a fan of needles and the idea of a tattoo isn’t for you, one of the easiest ways to ensure your eyes pop without much effort is to invest in eyelash extensions. No, not the sort that come from the drugstore and have to be applied every day. Professional eyelash extensions, applied by a licensed aesthetician, can last a few weeks at a time, and longer with touch-up appointments.
