How To Wake Up Tired Eyes

I constantly battle with puffy, tired eyes no matter how much sleep I get. So, I am always trying new makeup products and tricks hoping for a magic cure. While their really isn't one,  I have found a few wonderful products to help depuff and perk up my tired eyes. 
The first thing I do is treat the under eye area with Benefit Cosmetics depuffing eye gel.  Once that is absorbed, I gently pat the "It's Potent" rich eye cream under the eye and around to the brow bone.


Benefit Cosmetics "Puff Off!" eye gel has an iron shape metal head for cooling relief.  It feels so good if you keep it cool in the fridge! It's by far the best little secret to help reduce the bags under my eyes and I have tried quite a few treatments. It may take a few minutes before you start to see any changes. Once that is dry, I gently pat on the "It's potent" brightening eye cream.  It has a rich creamy texture that gets absorbed into the skin pretty quickly. Finish with a touch of concealer. I use Benefit's Erase Paste.


You are going to love me for introducing you to this magical "High Brow" highlighter pencil by Benefit Cosmetics. Even if you do not have to battle puffy eyes, this pencil will brighten your eye area and make you look as if you have slept for a full 8 hours.  


Color in the inner corner of the eyes in a V and gently blend with the tip of your fingers, over the eye and a little bit under. Finish your eyes with a few coats of mascara and eyeliner along the lash line.


Thanks so much for stopping by!
