I’m always looking for an easy and inexpensive fix for my sagging, crepey, hooded eyelids. . . I’ve tried eyelid tapes, eyelid glue, eyeshadow techniques, and now I’m actually going to put egg whites on there! I’ve heard that a thin coat of egg white will tighten up the lid as it dries and create an eyelid lift so I want to know… does it work?
Of the things I’ve tried, egg white definitely seems like the least harmful. . . it’s all natural, inexpensive and most of us already have it at home. So, let’s give it a try, shall we?
Here are my eyelids before:
Using a Q-Tip dipped in the egg white, I applied a thin coating of egg to each eyelid on the crease.
I waited about 40 seconds with my eyes closed for it to dry, then opened my eyes and. . .
Since there was a brief moment of success, I tried another coating applying the egg white over more of the lids. . . waited for it to dry . . . opened my eyes and. . . Nothing.
I tried a total of 4 layers, and the effect seemed to get worse with each layer:
The dried egg forms a film that makes the skin less elastic causing some new and different wrinkles to appear. It can best be seen on video as can the moment after the blink that ruined the effect. Watch the full video to see all the details of why this is another failed experiment.
