Say Buh-Bye to Dark, Tired Looking Eyes


One of the things I remember the most about becoming a new mom was looking in the mirror every morning and wincing at my sad, dark, puffy, tired looking eyes. When you’re horribly sleep deprived and you look like a zombie, it’s like a double whammy. You feel tired and you look tired. There’s just no faking it.

Like you, I’ve tried all types of concealers and nothing seemed to work. How do you reduce puffy eyes and ease nagging dark circles?

Some products were too thick, others magically disappeared from my face an hour later. A month ago, I had a little bit of extra time and popped by the Benefit Cosmetics counter.  I purchased Erase Paste because it came highly recommended by the cute, bright-eyed girl who was helping me.

It’s a unique, concentrated, blendable concealer that instantly brightens your eyes and camouflages signs of fatigue. I honestly think it’s amazing. Just a little dab goes a long way. If you’re feeling a bit more adventurous when it comes to concealers, you can try a few of them in Benefit’s Confessions of a Concealaholic brightening kit. It comes with small test sizes of all of their concealers and brightening products. Oh, and the packaging is just adorable.

Whether you’re up late with a fussy baby or gluing together a science project, the good news is you won’t look like a science project the next day.
