How To Look Rested When The Party Went On Way Past Your Bedtime

August 22, 2008 by SheFindsShana

We’ve all been there, especially in the summer. It’s a beautiful night, the party (okay, parties) are phenomenal, the music’s pounding, and suddenly, it’s 5 a.m.

And of course, there’s a performance review at work/a big wedding/a date with Bachelor No. 3 coming up that same day. So, how’s a girl to have her fun and look rested? It’s in the eyes, or rather, in this step-by-step guide to looking rested, no matter what.

It’s imperative to work from the inside out. So no matter how tempting it is just to crash, make sure you take your contact lenses out immediately after getting home. All the Visine in the world won’t help you if you sleep in them. (Trust me. I got sent home from work once because I slept in my contacts and looked like I had pink eye.)   

Put something cool on your eye area to stave off as much puffiness as possible. I’m a huge fan of Eye Slices ($20). These disposable pads are amazing – put them in the fridge after you buy them, and then pop them out, press gently into your eye sockets, sit or recline (but don’t lie down), and leave them on for 10 minutes. The aloe and other active ingredients will seep out, moisturize your eye area, and calm any signs of puffiness. Best of all, they’re reusable – five times in a two-week period.

Visine ($7.29), that tried-and-true drugstore staple, will get the residual redness out of your eyes.

Banish undereye circles by mixing some foundation with your moisturizer and applying to the eye area with a flat foundation brush, such as the MAC 191 ($32).

Blend luminizer — I’m crazy about the ones from Stila ($22) — along the tops of your cheekbones to reflect light up towards your eyes.

However, the best trick is to use a light pink pencil at the corners of your eyes (inside and outer V) to banish sideways shadows. Try Benefit’s Eye Bright pencil ($20) and watch your face take on that bright, doe-eyed look.

How do you look refreshed after a long summer’s night? Let us know in the comments section below.
