Wish you could erase a few years (or a bad night’s sleep) from around your eyes? A little eye makeup is the only "work" you need to hide dark circles and fine lines. You can get younger-looking eyes without spending a fortune. All you need are the right products and a few techniques to properly apply them. "The smallest tweaks around the eye area—brightened skin, curled lashes, softly defined creases—can make you look younger and more awake," says celebrity makeup artist Jenna Menard.

Here's everything you need for a more youthful-looking eye area, including concealer, eyeliner, brow powder, highlighter, mascara, and eyeshadow, to help make your eyes look brighter, with no plastic surgery required. Add these items to your everyday routine and you'll be amazed at how much more youthful you'll look.
