Your eye area is like an InstaStories update—it reveals a whole lot about what’s been going on in your life, whether you’ve been staying up all night partying, going through a heartbreak and bawling your eyes out, or working long hours in front of a computer screen. There is scientific proof that people with fresh and youthful-looking eyes are deemed more attractive by anyone looking at them. If your peepers have too much baggage, or are looking tired and lifeless, here are some tips and tricks to bring back those bright eyes:
Conceal tired-looking eyes and prevent fine lines from forming at the same time with this multi-purpose, cult-status concealer from Maybelline.

Infused with cucumber extract, Pink Sugar’s Our Lil’ Secret Concealer helps de-puff your eyes while hiding those unwanted discolorations!
Every spa poster we know has an image of a smiling girl in a towel looking very relaxed and pampered, with two cucumber slices on each of her eyes. She’s smiling for a reason because aside from the fact that this is highly relaxing, the astringent properties of cucumber actually de-puff and tighten skin.
Calyxta Recommends: Pixi Colour Correcting Powder Foundation (P995)
Formulated with coffee extract, this powder foundation is perfect forsetting the concealer under your eyes and waking them up at the same time.
Egg whites contain anti-inflammatory compounds like riboflavin that reduce swelling and fight free radicals, helping to prevent wrinkles from forming. Pat them on your eye area (or why not put it on your whole face?), and leave on for 30 minutes. Wash it off with water to reveal younger and de-puffed eyes.
