How to Conceal Dark Circles & Brighten Eyes

How to Conceal Dark Circles

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.

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer & Brush Review & Swatches

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer Spring 2013

I recently realized that Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer and Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer are two different products. How in the world do I let things like this slip me by?

They look so similiar I hadn’t realize it was too different concealers. Duh! Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Concealer was recently released for Spring 2013 in five selections on QVC.

One of the best parts about this launch is the fact that QVC bundles the concealer with an excellent Double-Ended Airbrush Concealer Brush much like my beloved Sephora Pro Airbrush Concealer Brush for $23.14. Where can you get a full coverage concealer and a brush for application at that price?

Take a peek!

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer Review & Swatches

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer1

I’m hearing so many raves for the new NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer! I can’t believe how well received these are. Being a concealer junkie you know I had to get my hands on some and try them out for size.

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer ($28) launches next month in stores (I believe Sephora.com is already stocking them) and sound like a true dream concealer promising full coverage with a crease-proof, long wearing formula.

These are available in ten shade selections all of which, from what I’ve tested and seen, have a peach or yellow undertone. This type of undertone proves excellent for diffusing the look of dark circles.

Let’s take a look!

Benefit Fake Up Concealer Review & Swatches

Benefit Fake Up Concealer

The new Benefit Fake Up Crease-Control Hydrating Concealer ($24) will be available this March in three shades. I happen to be a huge fan of Benefit concealers particularly Boi-ing which has played a very important part of my early twenties concealing adventures. When I heard Benefit Fake Up Concealer was launching I immediately couldn’t wait to get my hands on it and play!

Hydrating concealer? Check I need some of that considering how dry my eyes are! Crease-control? I need that too please! Thanks every so much.
