Hiding the Holiday Raccoon Eye’s

During the Christmas & New Year season I find myself being out and about more and partying more and later into the night.  This takes a huge toll on my regular beauty routine – and on my face.  Particularly the dark circles under my eyes – which are dark on the best of days – stand out like I’ve been sucker punched in the face.

I was trolling through Sephora, browsing under the guise of looking for gift ideas (but honestly shopping for myself) and I found this: Well-Rested Face and Eye Brightener from bareMinerals.  

Naturally I picked one up and am so glad that I did.  The one end twists to bring out the goop into the built in brush and I just swipe under my eyes and across the top of my cheekbone.  I prefer to blend with my fingers, but a foundation or concealer brush would also to the trick.

Over the Holidays this is my must have item in my makeup bag.  Despite never being able to look well rested, this helps me look at least awake and alert – because let’s be honest, I have no intention of slowing down.
