When you happen to pull an all-nighter to watch your favorite series on Netflix, the evidence is bound to show up on your undereye area the next day. And while there's always makeup to help you out, you unfortunately can't color-correct the puffiness away. This isn't good news if you're constantly on Zoom calls or love taking photos for the 'gram. Luckily, there's a trick you can steal straight out of Heart Evangelista's playbook for these emergencies.
If eye cream and massage aren't cutting it, take Heart's approach and treat your tired-looking peepers with a pair of eye masks instead. Because not only do the eye patches have more skincare benefits than, say, a cold spoon, they're also convenient enough to help you effectively depuff in as fast as 10 minutes—especially if you store them in the fridge beforehand!
To solve her "undereye emergencies," Heart uses these chic retinol patches from 111Skin. It's the pair she's wearing in the photo above, too!

For a locally available alternative, check out Patchology's Flash Patches. Like the 111Skin ones, these contain retinol and peptides that can smooth out fine lines with continued use. It also has caffeine that helps with depuffing!

That said, puffiness can hit even without an all-nighter. Eye masks are a literally cool addition to your self-care routine, too, so having some on hand all the time never hurts. Peter Thomas Roth's, for one, are a cult-fave for having a whopping 30 pairs of patches in one jar, which are all soaked with ingredients like cucumber and hyaluronic acid for a quick peeper refresh.
