Anna Harty for Byrdie
There are a million reasons for our eyes to look puffy and tired: long nights at the office, early morning flights, one too many margaritas. But this doesn't mean you're stuck showing up to your 8 a.m. meeting with puffy and dark under-eyes. The secret ingredient to bright awake eyes is collagen eye masks. "It brightens, cools, de-puffs, and tightens the sensitive area around your eyes to make you feel and look refreshed in a matter of minutes," says Byrdie senior beauty editor, Hallie Gould.
