These dark circles under my eyes are simply genetic. You can check my baby pics if you don’t believe me. It’s one of the many reasons I’ve chosen to continue to wear glasses instead of opting for contacts. My whole life has been one long comeback to the phrases, “you look sick” and “you look tired”. I can’t help it. But what I have learned is how to wake those eyes up with a few simple steps.
I’m not ashamed of my raccoon eyes. At this point in my life, I have made peace with my face. From my hooded lids to my beady eyes, to my bulbous nose and full lips. I love it all. All of it makes me my own kind of beautiful. I do, however, appreciate being able to look alert, alive, and polished with the use of a few of my favorite products.
I, like most of you, work in an office so I need to look nice but I don’t have a full 40 minutes to dedicate to “everyday makeup” like some of my favorite Youtubers. So I’m giving you my staples and the secret sauce I use to glow up in just 10 minutes.
