I used to get dark circles under my eyes pretty often and the best I could do to camouflage them was cover them with some loose powder. The eyes looked better, but the dark circles were still visible. Until the day my good friend Laura introduced me to a concealer that actually worked!
Since then I tried quite a few concealers myself and here are my 5 Top Picks that work best on covering those dark under eye circles:
1. YSL Touche Eclat Concealer ...
Price: $40 at ysl.com
Description: Instant highlighter. The best selling must-have take-anywhere pen-brush for adding a touch of light or banishing shadows and signs of fatigue from the eye area, the hollow of the chin, the contour of the lips and the sides of the nose.
My Opinion: I really liked this, although it is pretty expensive. It worked beautifully on my under eye circles. The product has particles that reflect the light, which makes it perfect for hiding such imperfections as the signs of fatigue under the eyes.
The pen does fit in your handbag neatly for touch ups, and the colour blends really well if you get the right shade, which should be slightly lighter than your skin tone (there are 3 shades, actually, #1 is extremely light, so it will work for very fair complexions, 2nd worked best for me - although I too have pretty pale skin and #3 will be perfect for those who are on the tan side. Unfortunately they don't have any shades for darker skin yet...)
This concealer works like a click top pen, so don't worry when you will be trying it for the first time. Just "click" on the top at least 5-7 times to get the product coming out. Afterwards, it will be easy. Every time you click, you'll be getting just enough product for your entire under eye area.
I often use it on my cheekbones as well, it gives lights up the complexion. The only downhill is that you should be really careful with how much you apply. If you get too much product, it will gather in the fine lines under your eyes (not a very good look, trust me). But you can avoid it by removing extra product from the creases with a swab before you leave the house.
