Defeating Dark Circles!

If you're anything like me and has been greatly blessed with the fortune of dark circles under your eyes then this post might be for you! 


I'm very pale and having dark circles under the eyes really doesn't help my satiation, I do my best to create a lightened effect under the eyes and a warm look to my face. When it comes to hiding dark circles I don't like to look like I have a ton of concealer under my eyes because to me it just looks worse and extremely unnatural. 

I like to start off by using my Bobbi Brown Corrector under my eyes as it has a nice peachy undertone which is great for counter acting the blue tone on those tedious dark circles! I apply this using my Zoeva 227v and buff it in. After this I apply my MAC Prolong wear concealer over the top in a V-shape  under my eyes. I find doing this really brightens the area and helps diminish the tired look. To finish it off I use my Bobbi Brown Eye Blender brush and set my under eyes with a translucent powder. I find this combination of products works really well as you don't need too much of the MAC concealer to get the coverage required. I've struggled with my dark circles for quite some time now as everything I used seemed to crease or cake up. At long last however, I have found my perfect solution!

I hope this has been helpful to some of you, whether you're a fan of staying up late and regretting it the next day or if you just suffer from dark circles like me!

  1. I had struggled with my dark circles too until I start using the Mac studio finish concealer in a nw shade. It really helps to correct them :)
    I use it with a fluffy brush like yours so that I don't apply to much product and I love the result!
    Now I feel very tempted to try the pro longwear concealer too! xx
