  • If you’ve been crying or sleepless, meet your new best friend: flesh-toned eyeliner. Waterlining with a shade that’s just slightly darker than your natural skin tone will nicely cover up the red that’s currently rimming your eyes. Matte shades are more subtle, but shimmery ones have the most brightening power.

  • If your eyes are bloodshot from exhaustion and/or stress, there’s always Visine, but a touch of blue mascara is also great. It makes the whites of your eyes appear brighter, counterbalancing unwanted red tones.

  • Cream blush is another wonderful fix if you’re stressed or tired, as it lends a softer, glowier appearance on the skin. For cool undertones try a baby pink shade, and for warm complexions, opt for a peach.

  • If your under-eyes are purple-red, try a peach- or yellow-toned concealer or corrector. Peach looks more natural, but yellow is more brightening.
