January 8, 2018
There's a time-honored creative cliché you probably learned in high school English class: write what you know. Well, friends, if I know anything, it's how to hide a hangover. As a 23-year-old woman who's had her share of late nights, I've become somewhat of an expert when it comes to rolling into the office on Friday morning without looking like I just stepped out of a dive bar.
Whether you had a little too much fun last night or you just spent all evening tossing and turning like an insomniac, there's one thing you can do to look bright-eyed and alert when you're feeling anything but that. The cure is slapping on an eye patch. No, not a pirate-esque black mask, but an adhesive gel that awakens and revives dull skin.
Ahead, find 15 editor-approved eye patches that will help you fake a full night's sleep. Party on, Wayne.
