Concealer for dark under eyes. Nothing works for me :(

Recommended Posts

Hi. I've got brownish dark circles which look horrific on my pale NW15 skin. There's not one concealer I've tried that works. It either makes it look green/blue/grey or doesn't cover it at all. Would layering different products help? Can anyone recommend some products for me? Thanks x

These were the results with what I tried;
YSL touche eclat - made it look ashy/grey
Benefit it stick made it look green

Laura Mercier Secret camouflage 2 - was ok but dried my skin & made me look old :(
Lancome Teint Miracle - made it look blue
Mac Select Moisturecover - looked grey
No7 Radiance Concealer - made it look olive green

Elizabeth Arden - Ceramide Concealer not much difference/way too thin

Max Factor Mastertouch Concealer fair - awful

When I started using primers, it seemed that my circles were lightened permanently. I like Ooh La Lift, That Gal, Too Faced Shadow Insurance, and Primed & Poreless. I have allergies, so I always had a heroin chic look, the primers worked wonders (I guess they work as skin care, not just as makeup). I don't layer them, that just seems to cause creases. I think my favorite is Ooh La Lift, I'm still using one of the tiny samples, I haven't bought the full-size yet. Concealers are supposed to be applied over foundations, so that might help, if you haven't tried it that way. Good luck. flowers.gif

Hey there, I have really dark circles as well and I found that using a corrector and then a concealer works. 

What colour your under eye circles are actually determines what colour corrector will work the best for you.

I heard really great things about the Bobbi Brown correctors & concealers so maybe hit up Sephora and play around with it or ask one of the people who work there to assist you.


Hope this helps :)
