Beauty: Saturday night out – your eyes are just as excited as you to be on point

Here is the thing about working in fashion, you dream of attending glamorous events when you begin your career but about a year into it all, the thought of putting your best foot forward begins to give you more heartburn than reflux. You would rather swap your Gucci’s and trendy overpriced jeans for sweats and a date with your laptop any day. That overflowing inbox and face which says – have not slept since Taylor Swift’s 1989, birth not tour, makes it all too hard. I mean, is dedicating an hour of your life covering your bags ever worth it? That was the general thought at LOVE TWAIN HQ. But with being a hermit not an option, we sought more reasonable options.

A few months back we went on the hunt for some seriously hard working eye creams and were introduced to O Cosmedics. Now before you think, sponsored post, let us reassure you – we are purely doing our bit for humanity by helping rid Instagram of one set of dark circles at a time. Making it a regular in our beauty repertoire, we thought the next step was to talk to the name behind our favourite eye cream and get all the latest on now to prep your eyes for a night out.

To all the hardworking, sleep deprived trendsetters, you are welcome…


Hydrate your eyes throughout the week, they need water too. Opt for…
From day to day an effective eye cream is essential. O Cosmedics Eye Fusion offers the benefit of a volumizing eye serum and a hydrating and lifting eye cream. For dark circles and puffiness use O Eye Correct.

The correct way to apply your eye cream is…
Using your ring fingers, pat your eye products over the brow bone and under the eye socket from the inner corner to the outer corner; be careful not to over massage or rub eye products.

For crow’s feet sake never…
Forget your daily SPF 30+ or sunglasses. A 30+ protects the skin from sun damage whilst good UV protection sunglasses prevents you from squinting.

On the day, prep your eyes with…
A hydrating mask or sleep in your hydrating mask the night before.

When applying makeup, be careful not to…
Use chemical based concealers and foundations, they draw out hydration and make the eyes look old and wrinkly.

Once the party feet come off, so does the liner because…
It’s easy after a good night out to fall into bed without removing your eye makeup however be prepared for eyelash breakage, eye irritation and eye infections!

The correct way to remove eye makeup is…
Using a suitable and gentle cleanser that contains no acids or active ingredients or a micellar treatment used with gentle on cotton pads.

The best remover on the market is…
O Cosmedics of course! Our Gentle Antioxidant Cleanser and O Cosmedics Micellar Treatment Gel.

Follow up with…
An eye serum and eye cream to put back all the goodness.

The best way to conceal the evidence of a late night…
Is a good night’s sleep and if that fails an illuminating eye cream like O Cosmedics Eye Correct. Be sure to drink lots of water during the day and add some lemon slices for a quick detox!

You may not know this but…
Blinking helps remove any debris on your eye’s surface by spreading tears over them. The tears help moisten and lubricate the eyes and also have important anti-bacterial properties. If you suffer from dry eyes the use of eye drops helps to keep this essential eye function strong.
