Guys. Can we just talk about these dark circles? They look like bruises. For real. I’ve been at a loss until recently. I don’t know if it was turning thirty, the fact that I barely sleep these days, or genetics… (probably a combination of all three.)
I’ve done my research (and spent forever playing with a plethora of products…) here’s what’s works for me:
Before Bed: Estee Lauder Overnight Repair is incredible… when I’m good, I put it on before bed. The difference is noticeable (in a big way) the next day.
Splurge: MiracleSkin Treat & Conceal (Rachel introduced me to this and I’m infinitely grateful to her for it!) It glides on perfectly and covers even the darkest of circles. It’s truly the best concealer I’ve tried.Benefit Erase Paste is thick and creamy (and pats on easily with your ring finger.)
Save:Maybelline Age Rewindis another good one. They also have a neutralizer (put it on before the concealer on really bad days,) and a brightener (to brighten up inner corners, brown bone, etc.) The foam roller is also pretty great.And when all else fails, keeping a few chilled spoons in the fridge is a quick fix (for the puffiness, at least.)
