The Eye Brightening Trick That Changed This Mom's Life Forever

Posted: Updated:

For the month of May, HuffPost Style is turning the camera's focus on fabulous moms and moms-to-be in our Beauty Street Style series. Beauty maven and mom, Laura Kenney, is sharing some solid advice with our readers.

If your mental picture of a mother is a run-down woman, then it's time that you clear your head. Sure, moms often work until they're exhausted to make sure that their loved ones are well taken care of. But, they're also in the know on how to look fabulous on very little sleep.

While most mothers rely solely on concealers to mask tired-looking eyes, YouBeauty Editor in Chief and Co-Founder Laura Kenney has another secret: eyelash extensions.

"I get very natural-looking ones from EyeLure in SoHo once a month and they've changed my life," she told HuffPost. "They instantly open up and frame my eyes (the darker lashes help the whites of my eyes look whiter), and I don't wear mascara anymore, which keeps my eyes looking awake all day because I no longer have black flakes and smudges under my eyes!"

Laura added, "All I need is a dab of RMS Beauty's Living Luminizer on my lids, which leaves a beautiful, glistening wet look, and hello, eight hours of sleep (when I've really had only four). And I go during lunch, so it doesn’t cut into my family time."

See, it is possible to take care of yourself and still rock as a mom!
