1. Use Concealer To Hide Dark Circles
Dark circles are partially the result of your skin thinning and losing elasticity, which usually happens after age 40. These changes let the blood vessels under your skin show through, giving skin a darker color.
You can use a concealer to not only make dark circles appear lighter, but also to make your eyelids appear lifted and your whole face look brighter. Here’s how:
Step #1: Choose a concealer with a yellow-based color, two or more shades lighter than the shade of your skin.
Step #2: Apply a small dab of this concealer along your lower lash line, focusing on the inside corner of your eyes and the hollows of your nose, using a concealer brush with a small bristle head. Or, use your ring finger to apply. The touch of the ring finger is naturally light and warm. Gently blend the concealer into your skin.
Step #3: To keep your concealer in place, apply a loose, sheer, yellow-toned powder.

2. Reduce The Appearance Of Dark Circles With Vitamin K
You may prefer to get rid of dark circles by improving the health and condition of the skin, rather than just by hiding the dark circles under makeup.
The subjects in one study improved their dark circles by an average of 33% after a 12-week regimen of applying under-eye cream containing retinol and vitamin K every night. (Be aware that vitamin K should only be used at night, due to its sensitivity to ultraviolet light.)

3. Make Your Eyelashes Pop
While your eyelashes are clean and dry (just like the hair on your head, eyelashes won’t stay curled if they’re wet), curl your eyelashes by placing your eyelash curler near the roots of the lashes, then squeezing gently but firmly three times. Release, and then repeat for each eye before putting on mascara.
The curve in your eyelashes will hold even better if you use a blow-dryer to heat the eyelash curler for 15 seconds before curling your eyelashes.
4. Get Rid Of Puffy Eyes With Simple, At-Home Remedies
A great trick to make your eyes look less puffy and tired is to apply plain tea bags to your eyes. Let the tea bags soak in hot water for 1 minute, then place them in ice water for several seconds, and then place them over your eyes while you’re lying down. Leave them on for 15 minutes.
The reason this works is that the caffeine in the tea forces some liquid out of the tissues under your eyes, and shrinks the blood vessels that cause the dark coloration.
5. Lift Your Eyes With Eyeliner
Your eyes will look less droopy and brighter if you line them. This effect will last all day long if you line your eyes with a waterproof, gel-based eyeliner.
If you normally shy away from using eyeliner because you think it’s too hard to put on, never fear. Gel eyeliner is easier to apply than liquid liner because it’s thicker and easier to control. It has a creamier texture than liquid liner, so it goes on smoothly and doesn’t skip when you hit a fine line.
