Dark, dark circles


Q. I have dark under-eye circles. Is there any way to get rid of them?

A: Option 1. Use a proper concealer. Test out the best colors at a department store counter or at Sephora. Choose concealer that's a shade lighter than your foundation. And if your circles are very dark, go 2 shades lighter. You might be choosing a concealer that's too light if you are getting a 'raccoon look.'

Great concealers include:

Revlon Makeup Compact Concealer with SPF 20 ($10.99)
, I use "nude beige". What I love about this sleek compact is that it's creamy and glides on easily, I use a sponge wedge and dab it all over my under eye and you will see a big difference!

Laura Mercier's "Secret Camoflauge"
, allows you to create you to custom blend your own shade, one color to match the skin's undertone, and the other to match the skin's color depth. ($28)

Estee Lauder's Smoothing Skin Concealer ($19.50)
, contains Vitamin E, helps smooth away fine lines, wrinkles, and can get rid of puffiness.

Cover Girl Smoothers Concealer ($5-$6)
, the only thing I DON'T like about "lipstick style" concealers is that after awhile they break off from it's base and makes it hard to use after that.

I find it works best to apply stick concealers with your finger dabbing a few dots under your eyes for that sole reason, but use your fingers AND a sponge to apply cream concealers.

Option 2: Invest in a vitamin K-based eye product Eye creams such as Vita-K Solution gel.
