A sheer layer of concealer, set with any powder, and voila. That's how you cover dark circles. I don't think you have dark circles if you can cover it with powder...lucky you!

yeah theyre not too dark at all but since im pretty pale even a little bit of darkness under eyes bothers me. i think i got the idea from my sister, she isnt as melanin challenged as i am and doesnt really have undereye circles at all but she usually just uses a light swipe powder. it not a big difference but its just looks so much nicer!

so far the only way powder works for me is if i apply with my fingers, this gives me the best coverage and smooth blending(as long as my skin isnt dry and is properly moisturized if it is dry that day).

*OOH LA LA* ive been eyeing YSL. i might not even want to use cuz its so pretty! i heard the sponge doesnt fit in there which is fine because i wouldnt use it anyways!

^I think that YSL powder is just what you need... I've tried it on, and it has this pearly sheen to it and it covers a bit too! I wish I could make do with some powder

Ooh .. Benefit has finally arrived where I am and this is one of the products I've had my eye on. Do you still use powder on top of it?

I'm currently using DiorSkin X4 Control Pore-Refining Compact. It does make my pores less visible and my skin has a much smoother appearance. It also keeps my face more matte than other compacts I've used before so I'm pretty pleased with it.

I like Loreal true match powder. Basic but effective

No. If I get shiny, I just dab a bit on and it goes away fro the rest of the day. I think it's best not to use it with any powder since it is a balm and the result might tend to get waxy when it's mixed with powder
