I’ve had dark circles under my eyes since 2005. I’m serious. Having children has certainly aged me physically and mentally. Wouldn’t change it for the world – but I wouldn’t mind getting rid of those puffy tired eyes.

Here’s a makeup trick from Prevention that is one to remember:

1. Choose the Right Hue: Pick a yellow-based formula that’s at least two shades lighter than your skin tone.

2. Apply It: Using a small-headed concealer brush, apply a dab along the lower lashes to the innermost corner of eyes and the hollows of the nose. You can also use your ring finger, which has a naturally light touch and added warmth to tap and gently blend.

3. Set: A dusting of a sheer, loose yellow-toned powder locks the concealer in place.
