Holiday party season means more cocktails, less sleep. And the last thing you want to hear at work the morning after a soirée is, “You look really tired.” (Seriously, is there anything worse?)

That’s why our Style Director Andrea Lavinthal is bringing you the best pro pointers to help combat those pesky under-eye circles. And of course we included some celebrity inspiration (courtesy of Jessica Alba and Lauren Conrad) in the above clip.

Find it funny that the hostess of this clip is sporting a smoky eye that makes her own eyes look itty bitty when speaking on tips to make your eyes bigger. Also, when she spoke about lining your eye only 3/4 of the way, you showed a picture of Lauren Conrad with her eyes lined all the way. What were we learning here again? Terrible video.

But who doesn’t want to look pretty and big-eyed? That’s a great tip anyway. Thanks for sharing with us, People!

The Hostess has a smokey eye going herself, bad hair & THEE most annoying voice I have heard in forever. The last girl was way better.

Quite helpful suggestions. Eye makeup tactics are different for each type of eyes. Good one.
