*This time of year, seasonal colds and harsh winter weather can lead to excess blood pooling under the eyes, which shows up as shadowy under-eye circles. To help you recover that bright-eyed look, we’ve found two ways to banish circles—in a blink! *
*The makeup solution: *Sprinkle a pinch of gold shimmer eye shadow into a pea-size dollop of your favorite eye cream or concealer, then dab it under the eye, concentrating on the darker areas. The eye shadow’s yellow undertones counteract the blue circles while the slight shimmer diffuses the light, helping the eye area appear instantly brighter.
The skin-care solution: Dab on an eye cream infused with vitamin K and green tea extract (like gloTherapeutics gloEye Restore). This skin-smoothing vitamin revs circulation to diminish blood pooling so the under-eye area looks lighter, while the tea’s potent antioxidants help plump the skin so blood vessels aren’t as visible.
