#1: Becca

makeup launches
Becca Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer, $48

The brand’s latest undereye products are sure to be huge hits. First up, the Anti-Fatigue Under Eye Primer, which instantly smooths and blurs fine lines, reduces the appearance of dark circles and preps skin for corrector and concealer application. It is also formulated with antioxidant-rich matcha green tea to keep the skin around your peepers looking fresh and healthy. Bonus: it can be applied over makeup for quick touch-ups to revitalise skin.

After that, try the Undereye Brightening Corrector to eliminate dark circles. The peachy undertones of this product help to eliminate darkness for fresher-looking eyes. Our tip: apply it on your brow bone and down the bridge of your nose for a natural highlighting effect.

Last but not least, the Undereye Brightening Setting Powder not only helps to prevent creasing but also adds a natural glow to the skin under your eyes for an overall healthier-looking complexion.
