How to Get Rid of Under-Eye Circles Before Breakfast

Don't rely on your morning espresso to make you look more awake. To get rid of dark under-eye circles and puffiness around the eye, you need to take action. To start, make sure you get plenty of beauty rest. Then, simply rely on active skin care ingredients to do the rest. Beauty editor Anna Jimenez puts together the perfect combination of products in this tutorial. Here is what she uses:

To start the skin care routine, opt for a hydrating cleanser. We love BARE ESCENTUALS BAREMINERALS FACIAL CLEANSING OIL as it doesn't strip the skin and leaves you with a glorious glow.

Then, to really fight dark under eye circles, you need to use antioxidants and stem cells. Apply IMAGE SKINCARE THE MAX STEM CELL SERUM all over your face in the morning and night. The multi-layered technology of nutripeptides work synergistically to create the appearance of plump, firm skin all over your face.

Next, to perk up tired-looking dark under-eye circles, we love LUMENE BRIGHT NOW VISIBLE REPAIR 2IN1 EYE CREAM & CONCEALER. Rich in antioxidants, the cream helps to brighten and protect the skin against the signs of aging.

On days when you need extra concealer coverage, try TARTE CONCEALER AND FINISHING POWDER. It glides on smoothly, doesn't crease and the finishing powder helps the product stay in place all day.

Next, sunscreen is your best weapon for protecting the delicate eye area from harmful UV rays and free radicals. GOLDFADDEN MD SUN VISOR SPF 30 is great as it can be sprayed over makeup for the gal on the go.

Finally, a bold brow draws attention away from any darkness under the eye. JOUER BROW DEFINER PENCIL is perfect for visually adding volume and color to sparse eyebrows.
