  4. URBAN DECAY All Nighter Long-Lasting Makeup Setting Spray $32

Stop the panda eyes in their tracks with this killer setting spray that’ll freeze your makeup in place for 16 hours, no matter the weather, without making your skin feel sticky or tight.
  5. TARTE Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches $22

    Too much eggnog? Come home later than you meant to on a worknight? Forget to take your makeup off and now your under eyes are dryer than my hair after three bleach sessions? Use these babies and put those problems to bed (and get some coffee, stat).


The holidays can be rough, and while I haven’t found a product that gets rid of my resting bitchy face yet, these help me survive the family dinners and reunions with friends I probably never needed to see again. Use them wisely and remember what the season is all about (presents!)
