Mascara on uncurled lashes? Droopy. Come on, somewhere in the world is Lisa Eldridge, and she KNOWS when you don't curl your lashes. So curl 'em, and thank me later.

In a great shade range and able to cover a multitude of sins, this uber-thick concealer will become late night out's best buddy.

If all else fails, if you wear a bold lip colour, no one will look at your eyes. We love the intense pigment and satiny finish of Urban Decay's limited edition 'Pulp Fiction' lipstick for some wow factor.

Is your secret beauty shame your red eyelids? Have you often wondered if you're the only one plagurd by veiny lids? Fear not; turns out it's pretty common. (Collective sigh of relief rushes round the nation). Clarins new eye base is great to diffuse redness.

It's worth noting that this doesn't actually go ON blue. Instead, it's super brightening and great for scribbling over your eyes to perk them up.

Try a dab of this pearlescent reflective shade in the corner of the eyes and on the centre of the lid to perk you up and banish greyness.

First of all, this feels AMAZING as it's so soothing, but the caffeine helps to recharge tired eyes and de-puff your orbital area.

The gingko biloba leaf extract and hydrolyzed elastin (no, us neither) help to firm sleepy eyes and increase blood flow for less puff. Keep in the fridge for ultimate 'aah' factor.
