You may think it’s cheesy when people say things like your eyes are the windows to your soul, or when we describe the skin around the eyes as delicate. But what it is is calling a spade a spade, which is why if you’ve had a lousy night’s sleep, you’ll need to layer on more concealer or mascara just to look more awake. But these are just stopgap measures – concealers may cause the skin around the eyes to look drier by midday, which emphasises the appearance of fine lines, and piling on the mascara just means that you may need to spend more effort and energy removing it at the end of the day. So the best solution (other than getting really good sleep) is to use eye masks to give your skin around the eyes an intensive treat so you look more bright-eyed. Here are nine to try.
