Dark, puffy peep­ers get­ting you down? These tips will sort you out

Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Beauty -

STEP ONE Mask it

Beat B the puff by pop­ping on a Skin Re­pub­lic 24K Gold Aquagel Un­der Eye

Patch $12.99. Much more pre­scrip­tive than cream-based masks, this one is in­fused with an in­ten­sive gold serum to im­prove elas­tic­ity and min­imise the ap­pear­ance of fine lines and wrin­kles. Place it in the fridge for 30 min­utes be­fore use, so the cool­ing ef­fect can soothe puffi­ness.

STEP TWO Ap­ply a cream

“When it comes to a good eye cream, it’s worth splash­ing out,” says To­tal Face Group’s Pa­nia Pale-eli. A for­mula that con­tains both ac­tive and skin­nour­ish­ing in­gre­di­ents will treat the del­i­cate eye area. Der­ma­log­ica To­tal Eye Care SPF 15 $72.50 is great for the day as it con­tains an SPF, while Kiehl’s Mid­night Re­cov­ery Eye $48 is per­fect for overnight.

STEP THREE Ban­ish bags

To com­bat the grey­ness that em­pha­sises eye bags, dab on a peach-based con­cealer then

add Stila Aqua Glow Serum Con­cealer $39. Ap­ply four dots un­der the eye, then blend in the hydrating for­mula us­ing a down­wards tap­ping brush mo­tion to dis­guise any dis­coloura­tion.

STEP FOUR Say no to FOUR red-eye

If you suf­fer from blood­shot eyes, try sweep­ing a nude eye­liner like Rim­mel Scan­daleyes Water­proof 005 Nude Eye­liner

$10.95 along your lower wa­ter­line. This not only rec­ti­fies any red­ness in the skin, it also makes the whites of your eyes look brighter.
