All puffed up: super solutions for puffy eyes

Posted on December 13, 2010


This week’s top tip from the Powder Lounge is all about how to deal with puffy, overworked eyes. And this doesn’t involve seven different serums. It’s involves using your makeup cleverly, and the classic art of diversion!

  • Avoid using mascara or eyeliner on the lower lashes if your eyes are looking tired as this will create shadows and emphasise any puffiness.
  • If you have puffiness underneath the eyes, try not to use a highlighter or concealer lighter than the skin on the cheeks or chin as this will emphasise the puffiness even more.
  • To draw attention away from under-eye puffiness, wearing false eyelashes or having semi-permanent lash extensions on the upper lashes is
    a great way to bring people’s attention to the upper as opposed to the lower lashes.
