It’s Time to Splurge on Your Eyes | East Texas Moms


Now is not the time for a fabulous new lip gloss.

It will do you little good in the world at this stage of the game, and it will also just make your mask dirty faster.

Living in a pandemic means that lots of us are “masked up” and most of our face is hidden. But now is the time for our eyes to shine!

Your eyes are the main way to communicate with someone non-verbally while wearing a mask. DO you know how to SMIZE? It’s the phrased coined by Tyra Banks that refers to smiling with your eyes. You can read more here about the details of how to smile with your eyes.

To make your eyes pop and enhance your “eye smile”, why not consider splurging on a little something extra for your eyes during this season? I’ve asked my friends on social media to share some of their favorite eye makeup products at all price points, and I’ve compiled that list to share with you. Get yourself something a little extra to spoil those lashes, lids and brows!

When Katy was 20, she married an Aggie that grew up in the Amazon jungle. She and her husband are full-time missionaries and lived for two years on a small island with their then-toddlers. Now she is a SAHM of three living in Lindale. Her husband travels internationally a good bit and she spends most her time being taxi to their 15, 13 and 10 year olds to their bazillion activities. She started a blog, Pieces of the Story, to tell about some of their adventures. Her favorites: Jesus. Cooking food her family loves. Mother-daughter shopping in either role. Organizing and logistics. Mexican food on rainy days. Not great with: Crowds and motion in tight spaces. Board games. Pretending of any sort. Ironing or sewing. Living things other than people.
