As I’ve previously mentioned, I’ve been genetically blessed with some awesome dark undereye circles. I’ve literally had them since I was young, but only recently had I noticed that my heavy duty concealer alone wasn’t cutting it anymore. Ever since, I’ve been on a mission to eliminate my circles if it’s the last thing I do. Thankfully, with the help of a few new products, I no longer have to fret.
Any skincare routine is not complete without a good eye cream, and my favorite night cream is Algenist Complete Eye Renewal Balm. I got a generous sample in my Birchbox about six months ago and have never looked back. While I love the formula, I prefer a lighter cream in the mornings since I’m layering a few products, and have turned to Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream followed by Clinique Even Better Eyes Dark Circle Corrector to prep for my makeup. The new product by Clinique actually lightens circles, though it isn’t moisturizing enough to use on its own, so I definitely recommend layering it on top of a good moisturizing base.
The newest addition to my eye makeup routine is Bobbi Brown Corrector, otherwise known as the miracle worker. This creamy, pink-based concealer offsets dark circles perfectly. However, due to its pink tone, you need to follow up with a more yellow-based concealer to neutralize the tone. I love MAKE UP FOR EVER’s Full Cover Concealer; in fact, I can’t live without it. It’s the one makeup item I’ve repurchased consistently throughout the last six+ years. It’s matte, oil-free, waterproof and provides enough coverage that you don’t need to reapply throughout the day. It also helps to set in the creamy corrector. To top it off and set all makeup, I apply Bobbi Brown Sheer Pressed Powder, my personal favorite of the pressed powders.
