    Dark Circles and Under Eye Puff Reduction

    Take two metal spoons and put them in the freezer overnight. In the morning, apply the back of these cold spoons under your eyes and try to put them as close to the inner corners as possible. With a little pressure, slowly move the spoons towards the outer corners. When you move the spoon outwards, it drains out the fluid that is stored underneath the eye and the coldness will help you reduce puffiness.

    Applying Perfectly Winged Liner

    Holding handle of a spoon against the outer corner of the eye, draw a straight line. Now, flip the spoon in a way that it is hugging your eyelid and make use of the outer edge to create a perfectly curved winged tip. Once the outline is made, fill it in and make a line across the lashline to give the final touch up.

    While holding the curve out, place a spoon below your eye and then apply mascara like you normally do while lowering your lashes. By doing this, you will have the excess mascara on the spoon and not on your skin. This will also work when you are applying mascara on the upper lashes. Hold the spoon on the top of your upper eyelid to have that perfect mascara.
