Remove your makeup and wash your face before you go to bed to decrease the chance that you'll wake up with tired eyes. Puffy eyes in the morning, according to makeup artists, can result from an unwashed face from the night before.
Place cucumbers or cold tea bags on your eyes to reduce the signs of a sleepless night. Anything cold on your eyes brings down the inflammation which plays a big role in making them look tired. The caffeine from your tea bags, along with a natural astringent from the cucumber, work to tighten up the areas around your eyes for the purpose of looking like you had a decent night's rest.
Put on your on eye cream first thing every morning to look like you slept for eight hours the night before. Eye cream, when used over time, works to rid your eyes of puffiness before it even starts. The right type of eye cream will also help fight wrinkles which makes you look younger and more awake.
Work white or light eyeshadow into your a.m. makeup routine. Dab the light-colored shadow onto the inner corner of your eyes to brighten up your entire face.
Adding these steps to your morning routine will erase the signs of tired, swollen or baggy eyes.
