Are you looking to hide or disguise those unwanted lines around your eyes? You’re in the right place.

Crow’s feet refer to the wrinkles that appear at the side of the eyes and stretch towards the temples. It is thought this natural occurrence in our face was perhaps given the unaffectionate “crow’s feet” title due to similarities in how the lines in our face splay out and the shape of a crow’s claw or foot.

This area of our faces is often the first place we sign of ageing and wrinkles. The skin around the eyes is 40% thinner than other areas of our face, resulting in it being thinner and more vulnerable to wrinkling and other signs of ageing.

Crow’s feet are completely natural and nothing to be worried about, though many of us still maintain our worries and insecurities about the way our face changes over time.

So, what causes crow’s feet?


To some extent, the development of crow’s feet is inevitable and just a natural part of ageing. However, there are several lifestyle and environmental factors that speed up or intensify various types of wrinkling and damage to the skin on our face, particularly around the eyes. These include:

·      Exposure to sunlight

·      Persistent smoking

·      Use of alcohol or other non-medical related drugs

·      Pollution

·      Lack of sleep

·      Stress and mental health conditions

It can be reasonably argued that all these lifestyle and environmental factors are, at least to some degree, intertwined. So, if you manage to reduce your alcohol or drug consumption, it is likely you’ll also see a reduction in stress, mental health, and sleep difficulties.


Nonetheless, many of our lives are complex, and it isn’t always easy to follow the advice that you know you probably should. You might be staring at yourself in the mirror, wondering if you’re too young to have the number of wrinkles around your eyes that you currently do. The answer is probably no, and crow’s feet are just a natural representation of your life, but there are several ways you can hide and conceal unwanted lines around your eyes by using medical procedures or clever make-up tricks.

§  Anti-Wrinkle Injections:

Say goodbye to fine lines and wrinkles with the advanced anti wrinkle injections London clinics provide. Many services help users to manage the lines around their eyes and feel confident about their new, healthy skin. Furthermore, it’s a procedure carried about by highly qualified doctors who guarantee the best results for your skin.

§  Hydrate and Prime:

Before applying any makeup, ensure that your skin is well-hydrated. Moisturising the delicate skin around your eyes can help plump up the area and reduce the appearance of fine lines. Look for eye creams or serums containing hyaluronic acid or peptides, which are known for their hydrating and firming properties. After moisturising, apply a silicone-based primer specifically designed for the under-eye area. This will create a smooth canvas for makeup application and help fill in any creases or lines.

§  Avoid Shimmer:

While shimmer and highlighter can add a beautiful glow to your makeup look, they can also draw attention to fine lines and wrinkles. To minimise the appearance of crow’s feet, it’s best to steer clear of shimmery eyeshadows and highlighters, especially in the outer corner of the eyes.
