Ugh, what’s worse than looking like you just woke up from a horrible night of no sleep? I have a 3 year old. Her sleep schedule.. HA, I say schedule like it’s an actual thing. It’s not. Almost every morning I wake up with the tell-tale dark circles signifying that I hardly got any sleep after a long day of no rest. You may know what I’m talking about because you also have a terror, I mean toddler (jk, my kid’s amazing), or you might have a demanding job or like to stay out a little too late partying. Whatever the reason is, no one wants to walk around looking like death. This is why I have recently (and thankfully) added an under-eye brightener to my beauty regime. I add this before my concealer and it totally gives me this glow and a ‘I just woke up’ look. I love it! Even if I decided to go bare, I will at least throw this and a little mascara on. Voila! Here are some of my favorites, the top being my utmost favorite AND most affordable!

Because concealer alone sometimes just doesn’t cut it, Smashbox developed this breakthrough to prep for application that immediately wakens and brightens skin. PHOTO OP can be used on any area of the face to highlight and add radiance, too.

Immediately brighten the eye area and diffuse dark shadows while reducing the appearance of fine lines and dark circles. The illuminating tint blends seamlessly to conceal imperfections for a refreshed, radiant, even-toned look.

Bright eyes are the secret to a rested, refreshed look, yet the delicate eye area is often the first place to show fatigue, such as puffiness and dark circles. Discover a do-it-all product that not only brightens and conceals with a patented blend of anti-oxidants including Vitamin E, wild chamomile and soy, but is also clinically shown to de-puff and treat the appearance of dark under eye circles. A flow-through brush perfectly applies the Brightening Eye Perfector for on-the-go flawless coverage anytime.

If you’ve been struggling with under eye circles, veins or any other sort of discoloration around the eyes, one of these is bound to work! Try one of these, I promise you will be glad you added it to your beauty routine!

XOXO, Glam Squad
