Don't you hate it when you spend a long time in the shower scrubbing your eye makeup, only to get out and see huge raccoon eyes in the mirror? (girl looks up, “uh-huh”) It can be quite frustrating. Well not anymore! Here's a quick tip to get rid of raccoon eyes after the shower, or in a pinch: like when you wake up from a nap and need to be somewhere in a hurry, or when you forget to wash your face at night, and need to head out fast in the morning.
Are you ready? You need 2 things: a q-tip and some lotion. I put a tiny drop of lotion on my finger, swipe my q-tip in it, rub it under my lower eyelid, and PRESTO! A brand new forest-creature-less face!
It works great for me. It’s something I do daily – in the morning and ½ way through the day when the Arizona heat has made my eye makeup less than appealing.
