Banish Dark Under-Eye Circles + Fight Fine-Lines For Good!

By Courtney Leiva

Your eyes aren’t merely the windows to your soul. Apparently they’re the windows to your age too.

Turns out, your eyes are the first place to lose collagen, making fine lines and wrinkles especially noticeable as you age. However, thanks to the right products, you can shield and protect your eyes from a tired and rundown-looking appearance.

Whether you’re in need of some skincare or some concealing products, we have eight eye-perfecting essentials to send those under eye bags, circles, lines, and wrinkles back to the future…where they belong!

When your eyes look sleepy…

Refresh tired looking peepers with Soap & Glory Make Yourself Youthful Rejuvenating Eye Remedy ($20), an eye-cream designed to tackle all the tell-tale signs of sleepless night for bright and refreshed looking eyes in a flash. Or, for a lighter-weight solution perfect for under makeup, fight under-eye circles and puffiness with Phytomer Pionniere XMF Reset Eye Fluid ($153). It employs caffeine to de-puff and fade undereye circles.

If you’re starting to show the early signs of aging…

Now’s the time to throw some punches (so you don’t need the big guns later!). Some of our favorite products for fighting the first signs of aging around our eyes include the La Prairie White Caviar Illuminating Eye Serum ($290) to help illuminate and make skin more firm, the Murad Hydro Dynamic Ultimate Moisture For Eyes ($68) to help improve moisture and ward away pesky fine lines, and, for a weekly skin treatment, the Osmotics Anti-Wrinkle Vitamin C Patches ($48) for a boost of brightening Vitamin C.

When you need to conceal…  

In a bind and need a quick fix or just genetically suffer from dark circles no matter what you do? Check out the Eve Lom Light Illusion Concealer ($40). It conceals all your under-eye flaws with an illuminating formula designed to perks up tired looking eyes fast. Really dealing with some dark-as-night circles? Apply Khuraira Dark Circle Complex Primer With Peptides ($30). It has a not-to-be-feared orange hue to neutralize the blues under your eyes first so that your concealer works far more effectively.  Then, give lashes some added oomph, and make eyes looker larger and more awake, by using the Japonesque Heated Mini Eyelash Curler ($15.99) before applying your favorite mascara.
