Hemroid cream! I know it sounds gross, but when my eyes are puffy it’s the only thing that helps them go down – and I have chronic dark circles and bags under my eyes. No matter how much sleep I get, they’re alwayyyysssss there, always have been. So that and a generous use of concealer and a highlight pencil.

 

Just a tip – get the white cream, not the gel. When the gel dries, it tends to flake and gunk and come off, taking your makeup with it.

@stargazer102706:  I think it just depends on genetics. I get really puffy eye bags, and nothing works for me. not expensive eye cream (even if it’s developed specifically for bags), not cucumbers or cold tea bags, not preperation H. 

the only thing I can do is try to prevent them: don’t eat too much salt the day before and get a good nights sleep.

EDIT: I read that eye creams with caffeine might work, so that’s worth a try. I have not tried that yet myself.
