So many holiday parties, so little time. Get those glitter gel pens and mistletoe stickers out. It鈥檚 time to fill up that holiday calendar. No gathering is too large or too small. If it comes with an invite, chances are we鈥檒l be there. But we wouldn鈥檛 dare to show up looking like a hot mess. The puffy eye has never been a good look for anyone, and we鈥檙e not looking to start that trend now. Here are 10 tried and true ways make it through this holiday season looking all bright eyed and bushy tailed.

1. DIY Ice Beauty Secrets: Stack up on those ice cubes, ladies and gents. Not only are they perfect for those cranberry cosmos you鈥檝e been perfecting, they鈥檙e also a key element in bringing down that puff. You鈥檒l be singing 鈥淚ce Ice Baby鈥 like nobody鈥檚 business. (via Beautylish)
