Whatever eye cream you slather on under your peepers, not getting enough sleep will always make them balloon in size. So instead of desperately trying to tone down the swelling, why not flaunt it for once? We know it sounds crazy, but it's a popular trick in K-beauty that will take ages off your face.
Okay, first things first: concealer. This trick only works if your undereyes aren't discolored, so use your favorite color-correcting concealer to hide some of that fatigue from view. Once your bags are even-toned, apply a shimmery eyeshadow under your lower lashline—right where the puffiness starts. Don't let it reach too far down or you'll look puffier than you are!
