    Puffy Bags:

    How to fix it: “Cold compresses and caffeine ease swelling quickly,” says David Bank, M.D., a dermatologist in Mount Kisco, New York. Place chilled tea bags or cucumber slices over lids for two minutes, or pop your eye cream in the fridge between applications.

    How to hide it: Using a medium foundation brush (flat bristles make for easy blending), apply a thin layer of matte liquid concealer on bags, in a shade that matches the skin on your cheeks, says Nick Barose, a makeup artist in New York City. Then sweep on sheer loose powder to dull shine.

    Dark circles

    How to fix it: If circles move when you pull skin taut, excess melanin may be to blame. Fade them with hydroquinone. Shadows don’t budge when pulled? Plump skin with moisturizer to mask darkness temporarily.

    How to hide it: Choose a concealer with built-in brighteners in a shade that’s one tone lighter than your natural coloring (such as Bobbi Brown Tinted Eye Brightener, $38). Apply over dark areas­ only, blending tint toward the inner corner of each eye, to lighten up lingering shadows.
