Hollow Eyes

My Journey with Hollow Eyes

A few years ago my mom started telling me I looked tired and needed to get more sleep.  To this day it does not matter how much sleep I get I still look tired. I am now at a point where I have to accept that this is due to aging.

There are no Miracle Products for Hollow Eyes

It saddens me to say there are no miracle products or quick fixes.  Everyone has different skin and genetics plays a huge part.

Bobbi Brown Counter

While on vacation recently I was shopping.  I was walking by a Bobbi Brown counter.  There was the nicest lady who asked if she could help me.  I hesitated for a minute but then I thought who better to ask than an expert.  I explained that as I aged I felt like my eyes were really looking tired and old and I mentioned I had never used Bobbi Brown products.

Great Customer Service

The Bobbi Brown expert, Shannon, and I began chatting and we had a lot in common.  We both loved makeup at a very early age mostly due to our moms, we were not interested in doing anything drastic, and we both wanted a more natural look.  She was so down to earth and approachable.  She had me sit in her chair and she shared all her secrets and products with me. I was so glad I decided to stop and ask for her advice.

My Bobbi Brown Stash

As I mentioned earlier I have hollow eyes but they also have dark circles.   She decided to start off with a full coverage undereye corrector in a peach tone.  You apply this with a concealer brush all over the dark area.

The next step is to use the concealer kit.  The one she used came in the color sand and the pressed powder is in a pale yellow. Apply the sand concealer in a V shape starting at the middle of your nose and up to the bottom eyelashes. The powder is the next step.

Eyebrows

My eyebrows are now sparse and have a few white hairs.  For this issue, she applied a natural brow shaper in Mahogany.

It is a brow shaper and hair touch up for grays.

 

Review of  the products

After the Bobbi Brown expert completed the makeover on my eyes I was very pleased. The eyebrows frame the face and with the brow shaper, I could see the difference immediately. The corrector, concealer, and powder made the under eye hollows and dark circles less noticeable.  When I looked in the mirror I felt more confident and was very excited to see the products actually worked. This resulted in me purchasing these products as well as a bronzer.
