There's nothing like a lack of sleep to make your eyes look tired and puffy, effectively ruining the look of your carefully applied liquid eyeliners and tube mascaras. If you ever wake up looking less-than-gorgeous, here are a few tips to get your eyes back to normal.
According to Allure Magazine, one quick fix is to use a tea bag as a compress. The caffeine in the tea helps to constrict blood vessels, while the tannins in the bag will help to reduce inflammation. In addition, the pressure on the area will help to reduce puffiness.
If you're not a tea drinker, any cold compress will also do the trick, whether it's a bag of peas from the freezer, two cucumber slices or even your regular eye cream that's been stored in the fridge. Cold can help to shrink capillaries and improve the area's drainage. Even giving yourself a gentle massage can work wonders.
Once your eyes are de-puffed, a bit of concealer on your undereye area will cover up any dark circles. Liquid eyeliner and tube mascara can help draw the right kind of attention to your eyes and help to define your features.
