There are tons of products that claim to diminish under eye circles. But if you’re like me and it’s genetic, no cream out there will get rid of them. But there’s always good old makeup. Now, if you have light circles or are just sleep deprived use a light, radiance highlighter and you’re good to go. My favorite is YSL Touche Éclat Radiant Touch. But what about the rest of us that have genetic raccoon eyes?
My true and tested method is applying Make Up For Ever Waterproof Concealer,12, set with M.A.C. Studio Fix Powder Foundation , NC 43. The combo provides flawless coverage and lasts all day without looking cakey. But I’m on the search for something a little lighter weight that provides the same coverage.
I’ve tried color correcting concealers in the orange/yellow families to counteract dark circles . But they creased, the coverage was too light or the color was off. Another artist suggested using Make Up For Ever, HD Invisible Cover Concealer in the random shade of 350 Apricot Beige, a peachy pink color. I totally thought it would be way too light. But this ‘salmon’ color dramatically reduced the dark circles. Genius! A peachy pink color to diffuse the bluish brown under the eyes. Although the product is great for medium coverage, it didn’t give me the coverage I was looking for.
That was until my fabulous bride-to-be, Hamida, came in for a bridal trial and introduced me to an amazing concealer that she couldn’t live without by Eve Pearl. And let me tell you, it was like butter. It was light, spread well, a little went a long way and it effortlessly covered her under eye circles. The ‘Salmon Concealer,‘ by Eve Pearl, was specifically designed for under eye circles, revolutionizing the use of the color salmon. It comes in 5 shades and a variety of combos.
Bonus – the concealer is packed with anti-oxidants, has SPF 20 and claims to reduce hyper pigmentation! I ordered the Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer in the Medium/Tan duo yesterday so I could try it out on a few skin tones. The downfall is that you can only buy it online, while coughing up a $15.00 shipping fee (its the only option.) I get it tomorrow and I’ll keep you posted. Maybe I’ll even be inspired to do my first vlog;)
