Dark circles and bags under the eyes have plagued women forever. With out hectic lives, it just comes with the territory. Follow these steps to conquer puffiness and dark circles:

1. Prevention. Believe it or not, bags can be prevented. Limit caffeine, salt, and alcohol. Drink water.

2. Use ice or chilled spoons. Aerobic exercise also helps drain fluids.

3. Apply shimmer-containing cream. Makeup can help hide dark circles. Start with a shimmer-containing cream. Apply below the eyes to reflect light.

4. Apply concealer.

5. Shift focus to eyelids. If the concealer isn't doing the trick, try drawing attention away from your eyes. Apply black eyeliner to your upper lash line only. Then apply mascara to the upper lashes.

6. Use shimmery eye shadow.
