While I’m in Maine, my friend Corine agreed to step in for me and take on #BeautyBuzz this week. Corine is the beauty and the brains behind the lifestyle blog, Complicated Mama. She’s also a mom of three littles and a confessed shopaholic, so you can see why we can relate! She’s going to share her best tips on how to perk up tired eyes so I’ll hand it over to her!
5 Tips to Perk Up Tired Eyes
Battling tired eyes is something all women can all relate to on some level. We’ve all been there. Staring in the mirror at our exhausted reflection, fumbling through our make-up, trying desperately to cover up those designer bags under our eyes.
As a Mom of 3 (one being an 8 month old who has yet to sleep through the night), trying out a variety of different ways to mask those sleepless nights has become a personal mission of mine. So when Jo-Lynne invited me to contribute to this week’s #BeautyBuzz, I thought I would share some of my tried and true tips, tricks and product faves to help give your eyes a rejuvenated look.

But since finding this gem, it has officially become mine because I use it all.the.time. It is cool to the skin, instantly makes your eyes feel awake, and is small enough to keep in your bag for wakening those eyes up mid-day (long cross-country flights anyone?)
