How To Hide Tired Eyes After Staying Up All Night To Watch Election Coverage

If you stayed up waiting for the presidential election results, we don’t have to tell you how long and stressful the night was. To help hide those dark circles, puffiness and other signs of tired eyes, we’ve rounded up some of our go-tos.

If you’re still trying to perk up after a sleepless night watching the polling results come in, we’ve got you covered — well, we at least have your dark circles and under eye bags covered. Whether you’re in need of a quick fix for signs of tired eyes or you’re looking for a new long-term routine, there are plenty of options.

From eye masks that are super-charged with ingredients like caffeine and cucumber to calm and brighten in just minutes, to nightly creams that will nourish the delicate under-eye skin while they fight signs of aging, here are our top picks.

As refreshing as they sound, these individual gel patches come in a set of 60 and can help tired eyes in just 15 minutes.

Dark circles and puffiness don't stand a chance thanks to this balm that's formulated with pink peony, cucumber and apple extracts to reduce dark cirlces and micro-powdered real pearls to brighten.
