They say that eyes are the window to the soul – so it shouldn’t come as a shock that they are the first feature to signal to the world that we are exhausted. But, according to Allure magazine, the right products, and a few cosmetic tricks, can help downplay puffy eyes and keep you looking completely refreshed.
After a long day, try stopping puffy eyes before they start. The publication suggests donning a cold gel eye mask before lying down to rest. Lucky Chick Soothing Eye Gel Mask can be used hot or cold, and is a great way to revitalize tired peepers.
Next, a bit of eye gel can help reduce swelling associated with exhaustion. But don’t apply too much. According to the news provider, too much product can irritate eyes and make them look worse. However, a small amount of Cellex-C Under-Eye Toning Gel, which reduces dark circles and puffiness caused by late nights, stress and outdoor irritants, can help keep you fresh-faced.
If your eyes still seem a bit tired come Monday morning, a bit of makeup may be your best weapon. Allure recommends swiping a matte eyeshadow, like Jane Iredale PurePressed Eye Shadow, that is one shade darker than your skin across your lids and along your lower lash line. The product will detract from the puffiness.
