If you've ever woken up with puffy, tired eyes or have gotten all red and splotchy from a crying session, you know how swollen, pink eyelids can ruin your look. Despite a careful application of tube mascara and liquid eyeliner, your lids can still give it away. Here's how to fix the problem.
According to Allure Magazine, one dermatologist recommends dabbing a bit of nasal spray on your lids to help calm the area down. "Nasal sprays contain something called oxymetazoline, which addresses both redness and swelling," she told the source. Just use a cotton ball to gently apply it.
An eyeshadow base, like blinc's Fountain of Youthful Color Eye Shadow Primer, can also help to solve the problem. Not only does it help your eyeshadow stay on all day, but it can conceal fine lines and wrinkles as well as offer your skin plenty of anti-aging benefits. Just smooth it on, then top with a peachy eyeshadow, which will help to combat blue, purple or gray tones that might be ruining your look. Afterward, apply tube mascara and liquid eyeliner as usual to finish your look.
