I often have dark cicles under my eyes, regardless of how much sleep I have been getting. Anybody have any recommendations for good cosmetics to hide them? Thanks!

There are so many brands out there. Different kinds for different types of skin. What you need is an eye cream to help reduce dark circles. Again, lots of brands. Depending on your skin type you have to find something that works for you.

Yves Saint Laurent Touche Eclat, it’s $40 but it is the backbone of my minimal makeup routine.

I’ve been using Boi-ing by benefit for about 2 years and love it. However, I do find that it works best right after I’ve applied a light moisturizer. And it matches my skin color PERFECTLY (I use 02)! Lasts all day, blends great.

There are two ways to attack this.

First, find yourself a really good eye cream to put on at night, to reduce the puffiness and circles. The entire Olay Regenerist Line gets rave reviews and won’t break the bank. There are multiple products in the line including pods and serums. Also consider any of the higher-end lines (Clarins, Prescriptives, Origins) that have Vitamin C in them to use as a base underneath your concealer. It will definitely brighten things up.

As for the actual concealer, try Benefit Lemon Aid. The yellow in it offsets the color of dark circles. Also try Bobbi Brown’s Creamy Concealer. It won’t settle into lines and make your eyes look worse.

Be careful. There are a lot of really expensive eye creams out there and many of them really don’t work. Try to hit Sephora and get samples before you jump into any purchase over 50.00.

IF YOU WANT TO SPEND MONEY THEN THE ONE THAT fakecat66 RECOMENDED WORKS WONDERS, BUT IF YOU WANT SOMETHING THATS A LITTLE CHEAPER THAN LANCOME CONCEALERS OR PHYSICIANS FORMULA CONCEALER TWINS WORKS SUPER GOOD.
