When you don’t get a good night of sleep, it’s time to pull out the makeup for tired eyes. The quickest way to look old is to have tired eyes.
You may have noticed already that people do treat you differently when you have tired eyes compared to when you look more alive and radiant.

Makeup For Tired Eyes
Thus you need make up tricks to eliminate these symptoms. Below is a list of some things you can do to eliminate the tiredness.
1. Use the Yellow Makeup Trick
Yellow makeup takes out the darkness and shadows around the eyes when you have tiredness. Simply put a little dab right on the darkened area.
Spread it around the area. Then layer another color – the color of your usual base color on top to cover the yellow. The darkness will be gone.
2. Layer Your Makeup
Some makeup artists are using two colors of base makeup to help cover darkness underneath and around the eyes. The two colors are the same colors that can be found on your own face.
For example, look at your nose. Is it a different color than the skin on your cheeks? In most people there is a difference of a few shades of color.
Put the darker colored base on the darkened area around your eyes. Circle the eyes with this color from the inner corner of the eye down and around to the outer corner of your eye.
Then put the lighter colored base on the same area and follow this with the rest of your makeup.
Now, these two makeup tricks will help you a lot but there are other things to do to relieve the tiredness in your eyes. Use the following natural healing techniques whenever you can.

The second eye exercise involves your eye muscles. Sitting quietly in a chair, keep your head fixed in one direction – forward. Then look as far as you can to the left and then to the right.
Make your eyes move back and forth to the left and right about 10 times. You can pick up speed as you do this. Then next allow your eyes to move downwards and then upwards.
Repeat this back and forth down and up about ten times.

An old trick for removing tiredness and dark shadows is to get two tea bags, soak them in warm water and then when it’s not too hot, place it on top of your eyelids.
Of course, your eyes are closed when you do this. Leave them on your eyelids for five minutes, then remove. Your eyes will feel restored.
5. Witch Hazel Firming
Witch hazel is an astringent type of herb, which means that it tightens the tissues.
Soak two cotton balls in witch hazel and lay them on your closed eyelids.
Let them lie there on your eyelids for five minutes. Then remove them, rinse your eyelids and apply your makeup as usual.
