In my experience, using a great eyecream is the key to using a concealer successfully. I have used Yonka (not sold by Sephora), cold plasma for eyes (Perricone), and Clairins (has an SPF). I like a concealer by Sue Devitt in the shade of Bermuda, concealer by bare minerals, and I always use Ohh la lift by Benefit in the undereye area. I'm 56.
Tarte's is fabulous. Here is the description:
The Eraser Concealer
What it is:
A medium to full coverage concealer.
What it does:
Unlike other concealers that just cover the problem, Tarte The Eraser Smooth Concealer contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients that help treat and soothe irritated skin and blemishes.
What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Synthetic Fragrances
- Synthetic Dyes
What else you need to know:
This concealer contains Skinvigorating™ ingredients like safflower seed oil, a vegetable-derived oil that has moisturizing capabilities, and arnica flower extract, which is known to reduce the appearance of dark undereye circles. The concealer also contains cucumber extract, known for skin-soothing properties, vitamin C, an antioxidant that helps prevent premature signs of aging, and vitamin E, an antioxidant that acts as anti-inflammatory emollient. Dermatologist-tested.
A very lightweight, brightening concealer that doesn't settle into fine lines, but actually helps to disguise them is Make Up For Ever's Lift Concealer which you can read about at: http://www.sephora.com/browse/product.jhtml?id=P12
It contains tensine, an active ingredient with skin-firming properties for the eye area, and vitamins A and E, which regenerate your skin. This multi-purpose product also conceals specific, darker areas (brown spots, dark circles, blotches, etc.) and can be used as a highlighter on the more prominent parts of your face (cheekbones, forehead, and chin).
You can also use MUFE's "Shade-Finder" to help you choose the correct color for your skin tone which you can find at: http://sephora.com/browse/brand_hierarchy.jhtml?br
I hope this helps you.
