Rachel Zoe is certainly known as a woman on the go. She operates a business, runs shows at New York Fashion Week, and chases around after two toddlers to boot. So who better than her, I thought, to ask about disguising under-eye circles?

It’s a common problem; we all have them (minus the few who are genetically #blessed and/or get 10 hours of sleep per night). Needless to say that’s not me. I stay up nights, stare into a computer screen all day, and wake up feeling less than refreshed—and it shows. I sat down with Zoe at her hair and makeup test (it’s already looking good!) at NYFW and asked her all of her moisturising, tightening, and concealing secrets. Luckily, she didn’t hold back.

“I moisturise like no one has ever seen someone moisturise. I think I have five serums on, four eye creams. I use so many different products; I’m such a product junkie. I love La Mer's The Renewal Oil ($320). Fresh, I started using this nighttime mask that’s ah-ma-zing. (Fresh's Black Tea Firming Overnight Mask, $183.) You wake up and your skin is so tight. Skyn Iceland—I use the Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels ($44), the forehead gels, the smile gels. Can you tell I love gels? And I use primer to look awake. Primer’s a step not everyone uses, and I think from the beginning of time, MAC has had an unbelievable formula. (MAC’s Prep + Prime Fix+ Finishing Mist, $27.) They just know how to do it so it actually works. That’s something that really preps your face for makeup and really sets it.”
