Y u the most amazing reader evers on Musings of a Muse?
I love you right now.
Today I got an odd tweet from Maureen saying she got some of the new Lush Easter Bombs and proceeding to tweet me that she pops BBW Candles in the freezer and stores Lush Bombs in ‘em.
I had no idea what this crazy girl was babbling about. Eh? What? freezer? bath bombs? Who?
But this women is a genius.
Behold what she found on the Internetz!
The mostly commonly asked question I get is “How do I conceal my dark circles?” “How can I brighten my eyes?” Concealing and brightening eyes will differ for everyone in my opinion. Like snowflakes, dark circles differ especially since we all have different undertones so perhaps you don’t necessarily have dark circles but maybe blue ones or even yellow. Darkness will vary from skin tone to skin tone.
I don’t think I necessarily have a major problem with dark circles mostly my eyes suffer from puffiness if I’m working on a few hours of sleep or over computer use and gaming, straining my eyes will make my eyes look tired, puffy, and old. I already have some fine lining combined with dryness so indeed my eyes do tend to look tired.
Below you’ll find some of my favorite products and tips to brighten up my eyes, conceal dark circles, and give me a the illusion of looking like I had eight hours of sleep when in fact it was only five.
Ugh the bane of my existence. Dry under eyes! As I’ve grown older, gulp, I’ve noticed my eyes have started to become drier and drier and drier!
The skin around the eye area is a very thin, delicate area and it’s one of the first places you might notice the signs of aging. Of course, to erase those signs of aging as well as dark circles, puffiness, and just general aging, we reach for our trusty concealer. But what happens when your concealer starts aging you instead of de-aging you. I know I depend on concealer with my life to make me look fresher, more awake plus I need it to conceal pesky problems such as puffiness, fine lines, and dark circles. But when your eyes are dry this isn’t always the case.
Sometimes applying concealer under your eyes leads to creasing, caking, and just general woe all due to dry eyes. I know I have a hell of a hard time getting my concealer to look flawless when my eyes are busy being terribly dry. Most folks will recommend good eye cream which of course is the first step in getting the dryness under control but honestly, sometimes, you need to even go steps further.
