Whether you spent a late night out with friends or suffer from seasonal allergies, it's nearly impossible to avoid waking up with puffy eyes every now and then. Luckily, there are a multitude of remedies that can help reduce the appearance of swollen peepers.
According to Allure magazine, before heading out of the house, place something cool on your eyes, such as cucumber slices, gel eye pads or chilled, damp tea bags, as the temperature constricts blood vessels. Additionally, apply an eye cream with caffeine or vitamin K to strengthen vessels.
Makeup can also be used to hide the signs of puffy eyes. The news source recommends brushing tawny eyeshadow along the lower lash lines, curling your top lashes and applying a coat of mascara, as this will help eyes to appear wider and more awake.
If you suffer from allergies, you may want to be particularly careful when selecting eye makeup, as your eyes may be more prone to irritation throughout the day. A water-resistant tubing mascara will define your lashes, and you won't have to worry about the makeup smudging or flaking when your eyes tear up.
