Other than applying and pulling doublesided tape to your temples, here are some other products to give yourself an instant eyelift at home:
1. Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels $30
Keep these babies in the fridge, and. apply for 10 minutes before you do your makeup. This is an easy way to prep for eye makeup and creates a smooth, bright surface.
2. Dynamic Innovation Lab Women’s Instant Eye Lift $40
In less than 10 minutes after application, this hemp based product will dissolve off 10 years of those stressful work days. This product seemingly does it all (depuffs, lightens, firms).
3. Peter Thomas Roth 24k Pure Gold Luxury Lift and Firm Hydra Gel Patches $75
A brand known for “instant fixes,” these gold eye masks will severely lift and tighten drooping eyes in a matter of minutes.
However, don’t be surprised when those lines creep back by the end of the day.
4. Mac Fast Response Eye Cream $33
Cruelty free, this caffeinated cream tightens lines and subtley reduces dark circles.
5. Derma E Eye Lift $20
Greatly improves skin texture with its collagen boosting, organic ingredients. Provides hydration without over oiling.
*I reccomend using this on the lids as well.
6. Clarins Extra-Firming Eye Lift Perfecting Serum $40
Not neccesarily instant, but after 2 days of use, this hydrating serum drastically reduces dark circles. It sits well under makeup and doesn’t become oily throughout the day.
(The results are impressive, so I figured I would share this).
7. PURE Biology Total Eye Cream $32
After 30 minutes, this nutrient packed cream improves the look of your complexion, knocks out those lines and sucks out the puffiness.
Contains vitamin E, caffeine, baobab oil (antioxidants & amino acids), and hyaluronic acid.
All in all, you can always rub a couple ice cubes under your eyes to get rid of puffiness and call it a day.
Or just put on extra concealer.
However, a smooth and clear canvas will give you better results.
