'The Undereye Thread' concealers, and tips that you must know !
Any suggestions for good products to conceal dark circles under your eyes.

I'm one of those poeple who always get those dark circles/puffyness under my eyes when I'm tired. I hate it. I've tried to cover them up and used "Prescriptives Vibrant Instant Eye Brightener" to lessen the puffyness and appearance of the dark circles, but don't really like the results. The Prescriptives product definitely reduces the puffyness, but makes the circles look yellowish...great so you don't like tired, you look sick. lol.

Any suggestions? What do you guys use?

I get them as well. I've read that drinking lots of water helps. More sleep too....

I too suffer from bags and dark circles because i spend way too much time on the Internet! TFS to be precise. Since i discovered this site i cant keep away

I watched a make-up artist on GMTV London say that its good to use a cream that is specially for piles - you say, i thought about it and decided to try it out. I did use a bit for 3 nights (different days), but because i think what is used on the backside isnt meant to be used on the face, i declined. I cant say i saw a difference. I would recommend using a really good eye cream such as Olay eye cream, this i have used and would say its a good cream, i would also suggest a night cream and possible one for the day.

Origins No Puffery totally works.
I have very dark undereye circles, so I use a yellow corrector and YSL touche eclat on top.

Try Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier , it's kinda difficult to apply it to get it done perfectly, but the salesperson in any store will help you out, and you will get the catch of it.



Each compact comes with two shades to mix together or separately, to achieve a perfect colour, and a pro look everytime As usual, set it well with loose powder, pressing it, not rubbing it.

I have heard that Secret Camouflage is great for covering blemishes, and Secret Concealer is the one that is good for under eyes.

yeah that's what I heard as well and I wanna try the secret concealer for undereye circles.
but I'm afraid it would be too dry for me or look cakey or something. (I have dry skin, especially my eye area, so I've always used liquid concealers)

i tried laura mercier for my under eyes...the MA couldnt even do a good job with it. it was just too dry on me. i find the most effective concealer for me is shiseido the makeup concealer. YSL touche eclat is good too, but they only have 2 colors available last time i checked...light and very light.

i also use a ROC rectinol eye cream for dark circles...cant say that is a miracle product...but its not bad.
