dark circles

Can you please help me with trying to cover up very dark under eye circles.  I've tried Clinique and Bobbi Brown lines.

Please help!

Re: dark circles

@ubus   This is such a tough problem.  I like using Bobbi Brown's Corrector as a concealer (I use the light bisque color, which is supposed to help conceal blue dark circles.)

Sometimes I will layer on something light and reflective on top, like YSL's Touche Eclat High Cover Radiant Under-Eye Concealer or Lancome's Advanced Genifique Yeux Light-Pearl Eye Serum on top (the Lancome really does improve the appearance of dark circles by reflecting light away from them.) 

 

Re: dark circles

I have dark circles as well, and no concealer seems to cover them (I am very pale, and the dark circles stand out especially with my skin). I was at Sephora a couple of months ago, and one of the artists recommended First Aid Beauty eye duty triple remedy. I love it! You apply it before your concealer and it has a metal applicator. You squeeze itFAB_PDP_Video-Thumbnails_EyeDutyTripleRemedy_1.png and rub it on with the metal. It is slightly tinted, and it also helps smooth pores if you have any under your eye. I really love it! I would definitely recommend it! (This isn't me, but you get the idea).

Re: dark circles

@brieUSA  Thank you for the pictures!  I think I need this.

Re: dark circles

I recently started using The Ordinary Caffeine Solution 5% + EGCG.  It's the only eye cream/serum I've ever used that has made a noticeable difference in my dark circles, and it happened quickly.  If you haven't tried it yet, I definitely recommend giving it a chance, especially because it's so reasonably priced.  Now, my concealer (a mix of Bye Bye Undereye from IT COSMETICS and Lock-It Concealer from KvD) has a lot less work to do.

Re: dark circles

I have used that serum for my dark circles but it did not work for me.

Re: dark circles

is there a pic you can post of yourself or someone with similar skin tone and dark circles?

One of the best concealers out there is Amazing Cosmetics concealer.  You only need to use pin drops and it covers up circles completely.  However, if you have genetically dark circles (I do, that's for sure), something that might help is to use a Bobbi Brown corrector in the little half moon spot in the corners of your eyes, then use concealer to cover that and all the way underneath your eyes.  I do that when I look really tired and it brightens the area up and makes it look like I got a full night's worth of sleep.  Lining your inner rims with a flesh toned pencil like Tarte's will also help with brightening the area up.

I just bought the Amazing cosmetics concealer the other day and it's really great. I apply it with a little brush and my dark circles are hidden

Re: One of the best concealers out there is Amazing Cosmetics...

Thanks Scene Queen for asking this question! HALL of FAMER: I have a very fair complexion with jewel tones being my best colors. Eyes are blue/grey/green.. Can you recommend specific colors to use for your Bobbi Brown, Amazing Cosmetics,and Tarte recommendations?

I would not use any makeup since you tried other cosmetics. I would try out a skin care. I know it may seem out of topic , but it works. Makeup is my top fav. When it comes down to dark circles it would COVER which is what you want but I would like to get rid of. Easy steps. Look for a under eye cream. Buy it apply nightly and see if results is good. If not I will recommend going to a cosmetics specialist. You will find one. Hope it helped Chow.

Hi ubus!

 

Have you considered trying Benefit Erase Paste? It's a great under eye concealer and it has brightening properties to it as well. Sometimes when I'm extra tired (I work 7pm-7am and try to have a somewhat normal social life) I will even mix a little bit of Givenchy Mister Bright in Moonlight with it to give me extra radiance and light. Really brightens up the eyes!

 

Another product to consider is the YSL touche eclat. Great for covering up dark circles and brightening the eye area 🙂

 

Hope this helps!

Try Smashbox Photo Op Under Eye Brightner.  I tried this for the first time a few years ago and have been using it ever since.  I am in grad school so have many late nights, and this has always helped me.  It is a peachy color with a slight shimmer to it so it is great at reflecting the light.  I feel like it kind of needs to have a little time to set before you can see the results, so test it out, dust a little powder or a mineral veil over it, and come back to the mirror in a few minutes and hopefully you'll see some results!

I have geneticallly dark under eye circles. It's been a long journey finding a concealer that conceals right without being so obviously fake/too white and weird looking. The best one I have found is by the brand Fusion Beauty, it's called Fusion "line smoothing illumination concealer". I think it's the illumination light reflective particles that does the trick, you should look for something like that when you look for concealers because I believe this brand is going out of business, if you can find it elsewhere, I recommend you go for it. Find out if you can return if you don't like, but like I said any other brand that says something like that should do. Oh and you CANNOT forget to "set" whatever kind of concealer you do end up getting. When your all done with your make up, set it by dusting a finishing kind of powder over your concealer/cheeck area. This helps everything look nice and even (helps erase the line when your concealer stops and begins). Hope this helps!
