undereye circles

Recommended Posts

i have THE most horrible dark circles, that if i dont wear makeup, people ask me if i'm tired or sick. my mom used to call me uncle fester, they were that bad.

 

i tried using the benefit realness of concealness that julie suggested but i had some kind of allergic reaction to it. what i will say has done wonders for me though is the MAC maximum coverage concealer. I also use a MAC eye creme that comes in a tube its like $28 i think. and then walgreens sells a cheaper version of strivectin D that i use when my allergies are really bad, i think it costs about $24. i shelled out the $98 for a tube of strivectin D a few years ago, and i would tell anyone who is temped to use it that if your circles are really light it will probably work great, but if you have really dark ones like me, dont waste your money, youre better off investing in eye moisturizer and concealer.

rofl.gif hahaha emotionally attached to concealer.

i may try the keromask but since i switched to the MAC ive been a lot happier. I also like the prescriptives brand, but in the winter my circles are worse so i need something more opaque like the MAC.

I had a chemical peel done in December so for a while (and still) I am red. Not sure if this would help (different skin color problem) but there is a Physicians brand (sold in drug stores) that has Conceal RX to help cover it. It is better than regular concealer. It is green. Not sure if it will conceal dark circles but it helps with any redness.

 

BTW, Monika, I love your pic

awesome articles jean-marcus, im printing those out. and calling my dermatologist first thing monday to ask about the lightening cream. i know that my problem stems from allergies. my brother and sister both have deviated septums and my brothers was bad enough that he had it surgically corrected a few years ago. it definitely made his circles get much lighter!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
