Sleepy Hollow Be Gone!

Dark circles around the eyes are not necessarily an age thing. However, hollowness under the eyes, accompanied with dark circles, often comes with age. I don’t think the combination is a good look. My Sleepy Hollow look arrived on my 45th birthday. Sadly, it was a non refundable gift from Father Time. I couldn’t even re-gift it. Not that I would really wish this on anyone.


Appy a small amount under each eye, then tap tap tap and then gently smooth

For years, I simply used a variety of under eye highlighters. Yes, they brighten the area, but after an hour or so the caking and creasing started to appear. Appling more was definitely not the answer. In fact it just made matters worse.

One day, after seeing a commercial for Garnier Skin Active Clearly Brighter Anti-Dark Circle Eye Roller, I thought, no way, I am not going get hooked in with another promise. But then again, nothing else worked out perfectly, why not try it.

And, try it, I did. It was easy to apply. Has a smooth texture. I can put it on before or after my foundation. It does not cake or crease, even after putting on powder. Most importantly, it has a illuminous brightening effect. Which in these days of Selfies is great. It’s also small enough to carry in your purse or pocket.
