With the excitement of the IIFA Awards in and given what I have learnt from my celebrity clientele both in Hollywood and Bollywood, I thought let's digress from the serious medical stuff and review something that is timely.
Not only are our Eyes the window to our soul but they also are the first, most attractive and engaging elements of our appearance. Where else is appearance of more importance than in the world of movie stars and celebrities? And hence the emphasis on Eyes!
Even though majority of these concepts apply to women, men are increasingly tinkering with similar quests too
Maintaining my approach to innovative technology and medical information, I have tried to classify the following information in a user-friendly and lucid fashion.
So lets breakdown the enhancement of the appearance of our eyes and its impact on those who look at us into the following categories:
Mostly applicable to women, these are everyday routines like applying eye shadow, mascara, eyeliners and foundation.
Enhancing Everyday Routine
The above mentioned everyday routines can be enhanced with creative and learned improvements like extending the eye liner beyond the lateral canthus, emphasizing an almond shaped eye, deepening the contrast of liners Vs eye shadow. Using augmented, eye shadow colors and bling to further glamorize the look.
Long lashes can be gained by applying Lattisse (originally invented for Glaucoma), lashes also experience darkening which is a welcome side effect in light skinned people. Permanent eye liners can take away the everyday hassle of applications.
In olden times, women would actually put extracts of Bella Donna in their eyes to dilate their pupils as an attractive feature.
Juviderm, Collagen and Botox can be selectively used and also in creative combinations to decrease wrinkles (Crows feet), improve dark circles and make the eyes more prominent in appearance.
The eyelids can be surgically corrected in cases of Ptosis (Droopy lids), excessive skin (dermatochalasis) can be improved by skin tightening techniques and Thermage. The lids can actually be designed to closely simulate certain movie stars.
Amniotic (Human Placenta) surgery can be used to correct the yellow-red lesions (from Sun damage) to white of our eyes and return the sparkle to the eyes. The chronic red and tired look can be rejuvenated with dry eye treatments and combination “No-Stitch” Amniotic surgery.
The color of the eye can be changed temporarily with contact lenses and permanently with Iris Implants (Under FDA investigation) and a new Laser technique that directly changes Iris color (Khaasbaat article last month)
I have even surgical placed platinum and diamond jewelry on the outside white of the eye. This can be star shaped, heart shaped etc. and is a permanent jewel that is very visible.
So there you go; you now have the secrets of so many of our movie stars and their mesmerizing looks. Try them (Statutory Warning: Only after consulting with your eye doctor)
Of course, I am biased to perfect Vision so wearing glasses on top of all of these mentioned enhancers is pretty much like wearing a veil on your face after a full hour of a makeup session. So Vision surgery comes First. The rest is just Packaging!
Maybe you can have fun during IIFA trying to see which celebrity did what. You see, not everything is in the eyes of the Beholder!
