finally looking my age

OK, I really shouldn't complain, but I'm so used to people guessing my age a lot lower than my actual age because I "look younger". The other day two people guessed my age AT MY AGE Yes, that's a good thing since I'm only 25 almost 26 but then they said, Oh, you look that old...I know it's ever since I had my son...those long nights of getting up...not sleeping like I used my question is any good ideas on how to get rid of those horrible dark circles under my eyes? Even concealer isn't really doing it anymore...I just want to look like I'm well rested and have those bright eyes again...I don't want anything too expensive but something that works and if there's nothing that works and what actually works is expensive, I may consider it then...

  • SLEEP seriously when your baby is napping you nap, then you will catch up on your sleep, but other then that take some cucumber slices and place them on your eyes, maybe a half an hour each day until gone.

  • Dab white eyeshadow in the inner corner of your eyelids (right where it meets your nose). It will bring out the whites of your eyes and pull your face up a bit.
