How do you edit eyes to make them look glossy and pop? I've been searching for a tuturial and I can't seem to get the effect that I want. I swear I used to know how to do this.... any help would be appreciated!!! Thanks!

What I do is this:
*use the dodge tool (lightens) over the whites and the iris. Not too much...just lighten them up enough that they pop a bit
*then if the iris color seems dull use the saturation tool to bring out the color...being careful not to overdo it.
*next use the sharpening brush (set to about 20) to sharpen the eye

That's about it.

If you use Photoshop, you can use the "Sponge" tool, and change the setting at the top to 'saturate' instead of desaturate.

And for the sharpinging, where the blur tool is, there you can "right click" and change it to the sharpen tool.

Btw thank you, Sharon, very much. I found this to be a great workflow alternative! Not sure if it's more or less usable for me just yet, but it's DEFINITELY usuable! Thank you! (My current workflow includes usinging the using the mask option on many things as well as adjustment layers and using a selection tool. This is a great way though to approach and and I can imagine much quicker! I enjoy layer masks I think...lol...because I can erase and fill back in as needed for better customization on my end...I love how there are SO many ways to approach things depending on what works best for each person.
