Here are some can’t-miss products that will help you look as perky as Reese Witherspoon!

Feeling a bit tired this morning? Well. chances are you probably look that way and it’s not a good thing. While you sip that eighth cup of coffee, check out these beauty tricks that will help you look bright-eyed even when all you want to do is go back to bed:

Eye drops – The whites of your eyes are a huge key to your exhaustion level. Fake everyone out with Visine Maximum Redness Relief (I keep this at my desk for a reason.)

Brighten your eyes – My beloved Benefit Eye Bright pencil is a genius product when it comes to this dilemma. Line the inside of your lower lids with it, then be sure to use navy blue liner on the top lid (it makes your eyes look whiter,) neutral shadows and a good black mascara for a wide-open effect.

Undereye bags – Long-term, cut back on alcohol and sodium and drink more water. Short-term, use Bliss Baggage Handler Puff Reducing Undereye Gel to reduce the area STAT.

Dark circles – Ugh, these are the worst! Cover them up with Tarte Dark Circle Defense Natural Undereye Corrector, which blends in quickly and makes them disappear with natural light reflectors. I live for this product.

And there you go! You’ll look instantly brighter and more awake.  What makes you look the most tired on Monday mornings? Vote now!
