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.


The Best NARS Blushes

NARS Blush

As far as I’m concerned the Best NARS Blushes are typically their golden peach pink shades. Yeah, I mean Orgasm. NARS perfected the golden peach pink in Orgasm. As far as formula goes on NARS Blushes also has an excellent formula with incredible pigmentation, an easy to apply and blend formula, and a long wear.

Outside of Tarte’s range of blushes I’d say NARS tops in as a favorite of mine.

So which are the best shades?

These are my picks for Best NARS Blushes that you should own!


Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation Review & Swatches

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation 33

Tarte Amazonian Clay Full Coverage Powder Foundation is available exclusively at starting today.

This is Tarte’s first ever full coverage powder foundation enriched with Amazonian clay. It couldn’t be launched at a better time considering Spring is on the way and Summer soon after. With the warmer weather powders are definitely a nicer option in the warmer weather to mattify skin and keep it shine free and gorgeous!

I was given all the shades to swatch for you recently by Tarte and I’ve been wearing it all this week daily.

Here are my thoughts!

Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush Review

Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush 2

The newly Clarisonic Aria Sonic Skin Cleansing Brush is a slicker, more feature rich Skin Cleansing Brush and at the same price of $199.

Clarisonic combined everything you love about your Sonic Cleansing Brush and added some very exciting new features to the Aria but possibly the best news about this launch is the fact that it still remains the same price. Where as you’d expect a high jack in the price due to the slicker design, new battery charger, and features, it still, blessedly, remains the same price.

I purchased my original Clarisonic when they launched it several years ago and I admit I wasn’t terribly impressed. I used it two solid months and expected complete miracles. But the miracle actually happens when you’re not really looking…isn’t that always the way with miracles?
