and here are some tips to how to get rid of them Combating dark eye circles BUT if its improper blood flow or excessive iron then you should consult a physician. i have dark circles myself i believe caused from my deviated septum which is always making my nose congested.
Thanks for the info!! Really interesting and helpful. Unfortunately, I've gotten all my hormone, blood tests, etc done throughout the years and it Hereditary. Poo. No solution for me. I've had it since I was young.

It is green. Not sure if it will conceal dark circles but it helps with any redness.

BTW, Monika, I love your pic
Thank you very much!!

I've also had chemical peels done but my Surgeon said he couldn't do it under the eyes... hmmm.. did you get it under your eyes??

Go for it! I have/had a port wine stain.. its like a perminant red spot on the side of my forehead (also hereditary.. thanks dad!) and got it zapped.. it takes a couple of times depending upon the color. It is sooooo noticably better, no more extra coverup in that area for me!

now if they could zapp my undereye circles I would be in heaven!

I started using Ren Dark Circle something (the point is that it's suppose to help reduce puffiness and dark circles. I just can't remember the name right now!)

 

I think it has helped but not entirely wiped them out. Like most of you this is something I have had forever! I use it morning and night and it is actually really refreshing. I'd recommend it but again, it hasn't been a miracle worker. I still have to use concealer.

 

I HATE the dark circles though. I just feel like I can never go without some type of makeup because they just really make me look bad! I'm glad others feel my pain.

FYI: For all of you brides that have a problem with the circles -- you should mention this to your photographer so they can pay special attention to it in post-production and correct it if it shows up on your wedding day! -

 

Although I find it hard to believe, there are still some photogs shooting weddings on film out there (even though canon and nikon stopped making pro film cameras) - but in their case, there is much less they can do about corrections in post production.

Does anyone have any tricks for puffiness? I have had puffiness under my eyes for years and can't seem to get rid of them. I don't have any known allergies, maybe its not enough water? who knows? i also try not to eat salty food and drink water late at night. It looks like i've had a good cry the night before, every morning. I hate it!

It seems like MAC is popular and Benefit was mentioned. Any other concealer or eye cream that is a miracle worker?? I've tried tonnes of different eye creams but none tend to make much difference. Any other suggestions would be great!

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
