Dark circles be gone!


Dark circles are something which i don't suffer with terribly, but considering i'm tired about 80% of the time, i'm always on the search for products to make my face that little bit brighter and more polished. I have a few different products in rotation depending on what kind of makeup look i'm going for and how bad my eyes are looking, and i feel like i pretty much have it covered.

For minimal makeup days i like to keep it simple, as i find having too much product under my eyes can look a little too 'done' if i'm not really bothering with much else. For this i like to sweep a small amount of Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener under my eyes and into the inner corners to brighten everything up and make me look more awake. This product will by no means erase everything, but it's so lightweight i can use it even when i'm not wearing any other makeup.

For the average makeup day i use a mixture of products. Under the eyes i tend to take the Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener, and then go over it with either the Nars radiant creamy concealer or the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer. The latter is slightly thicker and heavier whereas the nars offering is great in coverage but more lightweight, so i decide which one to use depending on how hot it is and how much I've got to cover up. The Bobbi Brown creamy concealer is a great one to travel with as it's wonderful used on blemishes as well as under the eyes.

If i'm looking to highlight the under eye area then i always reach for the Rimmel wake me up concealer. Used in conjunction with the Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener (which i can never not use) it really brightens the under eye area giving a highlighted effect, whist covering bags and remaining lightweight.

Lastly is the category for i'm staying at my boyfriends and i need to try and not take a whole suitcase with me concealers. For this i like to bring along my Bobbi Brown tinted eye brightener as always in case i'm feeling lazy, and either the Bobbi Brown creamy concealer or the MAC studio finish concealer. Both of these concealers are great for travelling light as they can be doubled up as a product to cover blemishes as well as covering those pesky dark circles.

So there you have it, my current top concealers for hiding bags and covering blemishes. Blended out with a Real techniques deluxe crease brush and set with the Rimmel stay matte powder and i'm good to go.
