If you're looking for something that will brighten your eyes instantly, we have just the product to recommend: Ellis Faas Eye Lights ($42). Use the color all over your lids for a brilliant, metallic sheen, or simply dab on the inner V for an eye-awakening effect. Watch the video to see it in action.
Cosmetic brand Ellis Faas is known for putting its products in easy-to-carry pens, and now there's a smart and kind way to recycle them. The brand is asking that customers return empty pens, which will be given to a group of artists for creating sculptures and mixed media pieces.
The pieces will then be auctioned off, and the proceeds will go to War Child International, a nonprofit that supports psychological and social stability programs for children exposed to the vagaries of life in a war zone. It's a creative way to reuse makeup packaging, and hopefully it will provide a significant sum to a good cause, too.
