Morning Wakeup Call

Have you ever been jealous of that person who “woke up like dis”? Effortless, and under eye-bagless.  Yeah, same here.  BUT fear no more; I have found our cure.  It’s called: Hyrdogel Eye Masks!  They are like energy drinks, but for your eyes.

As a makeup artist, I usually have early call-times, and that means I have to wake up and rush to get ready while the models/talent get to roll out of bed and come straight to set.
The issue with that though, is most of the time they don’t wake up looking like the goddess we see in all the Instagram posts.  Knotted hair, crusty lips, and large brown paper bags under their eyes.  The rest is easy to handle, but the bags have been the number 1 issue.  Because coffee and conversation doesn’t help with this, I use these eye masks to come to the rescue-for all of our sakes.

There are plenty of different brands out there, but my favorite thus far is the ToGoSpa Natural Collagen Gel Pads.  The collagen gel pads are micro-infused with Aloe, Vitamins C & E, Amino Acids, Red Seaweed Plant and Allantoin (a natural chemical compound that is produced by many organisms, including animals, bacteria and plants).  So yes, they are all natural!!   No Parabons, no dyes, and no harm done to animals.   They are activated by the body’s natural temperature, so the nutrients and aminos stored, help to deminish the appearance of tired, aging, and stressed eyes.  They come in a few different really great varieties to target all beauty needs and are only $12.50 for a pack of three:

Green Tea EYES

Super Anti-oxidant Green Tea contains a potent batch of antioxidants  (catechins) that help to combat the damage caused by free radicals, which are believed to inhibit glycation, one of the main causes of cellular aging.


Coconut EYES

Coconut Extract and Allantoin for an extremely moisturizing experience.  It also smells like vacation.togospa-eyes-6-pair-coconut-ba11hjm1uovoz-420x420

Ice Water EYES 
Amino Acids, Vitamins and nutrients work synergistically to moisturize, plump and add nutrients to the delicate under eye zone, always creating a more relaxed and refreshed appearance.a3ca2b594e834433f12e412632330a8d
Pomegranate EYES with Resveratrol. 
Pomegranate EYES work to protect against premature aging by helping reduce the visible signs of aging caused by sun damage and exposure of the elements, and promotes smooth, firm skin by promoting collagen and elasticity production in the delicate under eye zone.
You don’t have to be in front of a camera to use them.  They are perfect for hangovers too! Oh, and a must have in my bag when traveling.
For best results: All you have to do is use them!  Let them sit on your skin for 15-20 minutes.  Another fun thing to do, if you’re feeling crazy, put them in the refrigerator for an ultra cooling effect.  I usually put them on first thing when I wake up, that way I can do my makeup on the way to work… guilty.  Hope this has helped save your under-eye bag life!
