Erase Dark Circles Like the Model Set

Models are undoubtedly genetic anomalies who hit the jackpot in the beauty and body departments, but not even Victoria’s Secret supers can evade under-eye circles. Whether your dark shadows are due to jet lag, an all-nighter at the office, or one cocktail too many, take a cue from the catwalkers and slap on a fast fix: the eye mask. Unlike the full-face versions, these crescent-shaped patches nestle perfectly along your lower lash line and are steeped with de-puffing, brightening, and tightening ingredients that offer instant, targeted results—likely the reason Ji Hye Park, Ondria Hardin, Behati Prinsloo, and Lily Aldridge reach for them right before a photo shoot. We like Klorane’s Smoothing and Relaxing Patches laced with anti-inflammatory cornflower water as an in-flight or midday pick-me-up; Skyn Iceland’s nonslip, nongreasy Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels prior to putting on makeup; Shiseido’s Benefiance WrinkleResist24 Pure Retinol Express Smoothing Eye Mask to fight fine lines; and Dr. Jart’s Cheek & Eye Lift to tighten and plump. Pair with a quick dab of concealer and consider last night’s sins effectively erased.
