This is an obvious one. But if ya need help falling asleep, unplug earlier, listen a soothing playlist or sport an eye mask to keep out the light. Better yet, snooze in one with the sleepyhead’s official morning motto.
Editor’s Tip: Cut back on caffeine past noon. Yup, even soda!

Hydration is key for health and beauty. Ya know how your
skin gets really dry and thin after taking in too much salt and not enough
water? That also takes a toll under your eyes, too. Sip on 8 cups a day for
Editor’s Tip: Take daily vitamins (ideally chockfull of A, E, K and iron) to reduce the darkness.
Stock up before you get stuffed up. Anti-histamines and
saline spray are your best friends when allergy season hits.
Editor’s Tip: If you have indoor allergies (think: dust, mold), wash your sheets in hot water to kill the dust mites.

And if that stuff isn’t working…
We’ve got some bad news: it’s likely genetic. Your skin is naturally thinner under the eyes, making the violet-tinted capillaries that much more noticeable. But don’t worry! We’ve got these makeup tricks to light up your eyes.
Find the perfect concealer.
Meet your best friend in makeup form: concealer. To find the
right one, first, make sure it’s thick and creamy. None of that sheer
nonsense—it won’t work. Second, no matter your skintone, always pick a
yellow-based concealer. Why yellow? It cancels out the purple veins since
they’re sitting across from each other on the color wheel. Yup, it pays to pay
attention in art class.
Editor’s Tip: Save this step for last—that way no eye shadow or eyeliner falls or smears on the concealer.

Get full coverage.
Now that you’ve got the concealer, all you gotta do is swipe
it on your circles and you’re done, right? Guess again! The real deal is
applying it in a triangle shape under the eye, just like the model in that photo.
It makes it easier to blend to the rest of your skin while hightlighting your
cheekbones for better definition. Win-win.
Editor’s Tip: No eye shadow primer? No problem. Apply concealer to your lids. It covers any purpleness up top and sets the eye shadow.
Ease up on the bottom lash eyeliner.
Heavy liner on the bottom makes your lids look droopy. Does that mean you can’t rock a cat-eye look? Of course not! Just keep your lower lashes light and you’ll still look fab.

Be picky with your purples.
Clearly, we’re trying to get rid of the purple. But it is
possible to have this lovely shade on your lids. Simply opt for warmer hues
(think: grape, lavender, merlot etc.). Pass on bluish hues that amplify your
under eye veins. So no what we’re going for!
