undereye circles

Recommended Posts

I just bought some MAC concealer and it's great!

 

My face is the last thing to tan too, I'm really fair. The winter is the worst!

Same goes for me! I actually use a stick concealer from Neutragena for years and I think it works pretty well. You can buy at at any drug store - just make sure it matches your skin color!

UG, I just went to get my passport pictures done. I thought I had my circles conceled pretty well, and the pictures turned out HORRIBLE! Now I know why I wear glasses (well in addition to the fact I'm practically BLIND!) cause they conceal them pretty good!! LOL

I get dark eye circles when I don't get enough sleep. Also if I drink a lot of water after 11pm, my eye bags will be even puffier. Not sure if others have similar issue.

Hi, I have gradeschool pictures of me with my dark cirles and bags! Got them from my daddy. Anyway, Lauder has a make-up called Double Wear. It is a stay in place foudation that won't rub off and stays at least 15 hours/or when you wash it off. This foundation also has a concealor that works really well. Unfortunately there isn't an eyecreme that will tackle both puffiness and circles. I have used Christian Dior creme for circles and Benefits Puffy something for puffiness. The Dior is pricey, but works really well along with a concealor after about 2 weeks daily use. The puffy one I like too, but I have only had samples, not purchased it (an advantage of being a beauty advisor). Another thing about circles, I just read an article that says to use an illuminating light color concealor only in the dark area of the circle and a shade darker on the puffy are of you also have that. One of the makeup artists did that on me and I must say, I was pleasantly surprised! Remember, when messing around with any undereye area, ALWAYS use the ring finger only! Do not smooth the cream or concealor in, pat it in.

I hope this will be of some help to you.

I too suffer from chronic undereye circles. I use Bobbie Brown Hydrating undereye cream and Bobbie Brown Concealer. It's a little expensive, but definitely worth it.It's a life saver!!!

 

People have also told me that drinking more water helps. Good Luck!!

i tried strivectin sr at a dept store...the color of my bags seemed to lighten immediately, but that stuff's $$$$$! i may go to sephora and ask for a sample, b/c a little bit goes a looooooong way.

I love Benefit's Realness of Concealness Kit. There is a cream to shrink any bags and then an awesome and I mean awesome concealor to put on after. Its a great kit for your whole face, I love it. I bought it to use for my wedding and it was great. I then put MAC concealor on top of it, just to make double sure you could not see my bad dark circles.

I too have very pale skin, and dark circles under my eyes (combination of genetics and allergies) - people have often told me I look tired, even after a good night sleep. I have been using Maybelline instant age rewind as an undereye concealer, which has helped. I also use a bronzer powder so I don't look so pale, and that seems to detract from the dark circles as well.

 

I will check out the MAC concealer though - thanks for the tip ladies!

I'm going to give this a try. I have never used undereye concealer. I don't wear much makeup. I recently started wearing bare minerals & it has made it more obvious to me how I have this one dark spot under one eye. It's been there since high school, I just don't really notice it until I put on makeup. I guess because I am looking at myself closer to make sure the makeup is on nice. I'm pretty lucky that with my fair skin, I've never had a big problem with undereye circles. But, I think it's time to use a little concealer. Atleast for the wedding.

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
