    Under eye puffiness/blackness

    Advertisements
    What do you use to combat the puffiness (besides more sleep)? I have absolutely AWFUL puffy, dark circles and never paid them much mind until I got a job that requires me to be on camera and interact with high-level people. Now, they are making me very self-conscious.

    I have used Clinique's All About Eyes for several years now, and it had generally worked. But since I've started having sleep issues, it hasn't. I also wear MAC Select Cover-up NC20 and foundation, and while it tones down the black, you can still clearly see the puff.

    HELP!

    There is a regiment out there that I learned when I was a teenager. If you put warm teabags under your eyes, it will awaken the skin with it's natural caffines and cause the puffiness/eye circles to go away! I do this before interviews and such. Still works.
    If you cannot get past my size and my exterior, there is no way I'm letting you know how great I am on the inside as bestsellers are not judged by their covers"

    Yeah, I definitely don't have time to do that every morning.

    Hmm...I'm not sure then...I do that route or I use my max factor concealer and it does the trick. But I'm usually not puffy, I just get the dark rims around my eyes.

    I tend to use olay age defying revitalizing eye gel before sleep to reduce puffiness. If I forget (which I tend to), I'd apply it in the morning, and wait 3 hours before I apply eye makeup.

    old skool but preparation H works for puffiness and much cheaper . For dark circles I just use concealer. Well technically I use my foundation and just use it as concealer with my special concealer brush


    I will miss you SOS...
    Please be wary of what you post remember OPSEC is not just another acronym.

    Unfortunately, I can't use it - it irritates my skin (I have extremely sensitive/allergic skin). I can't even use PrepH for its "intended" use.

    Drinking more water should help some too.

    Up your water intake, use "anti-aging" eye creams and when you do have the time, soak paper napkins in warm milk & leave them on your eyes for a little while. All that has helped me.
