Yes, it is possible.

Bye-Bye Redness 3 of 9I am lucky enough to not have to wear a lot of foundation. Honestly, I hardly put it on except when I am preggers! Thank you baby. But, I apply a thin layer of my favorite from Cover Girl to conceal redness and I am good to go!

Hello Bright Eyes 4 of 9Mascara is a must, must, must! Did I say must? Not only does it take the focus off those dark circles but it helps those tired eyes pop. My tip: Give it a wiggle! When you move the brush back and fourth in a zig zag like motion, you will get extra volume in every last lash.
