PUFFY, TIRED EYES BEGONE!!!
My secret tricks for faking the bright-eyed bushy lashed look
- •Arnica Gel or Traumeel creamThis potent bruise and swelling healer works great for sleepy, puffy undereyes. I read about Traumeel (a blend of arnica and other herbs known for circulatory or swelling aid) in an instyle article about cate blanchett's beauty secrets. I immediately tracked it down (it has a different name stateside - T Relief) and have been using one or the other for my puffy, tired eyes ever since.
- •Eye drops with MentholAnother magazine trick, this one gleaned from a make-up artist I don't remember. The bite of the menthol takes a little getting used to but it's addictive and it def makes my eyes look brighter and more wide awake. Rhoto is the brand she recommends and what I use...
- •Pale cream eyelinerSounds delicious doesn't it? True white can be too harsh for most people, a swoop of pale cream along the lower lash line is just the trick.
- •14 coats of curling mascaraBenefit Roller Lash is my personal favorite. Be dramatic, let it smudge a little bit (helps cover the puffiness)
