Dark circles are my friends but they aren’t my friends.
We are so familiar with each other and comfortable in each other’s company and yet the acquaintance is not doing me any favours. Some days I look tired even when I am not feeling tired.
The last few months my sleep is disturbed, for obvious reasons and I need the eye mask and the concealer even more frequently.
(don’t forget to put your eye masks in the fridge; feels so refreshing and seems to be more effective)
I really want to cut ties with these dark circles but we seem to wake up together every morning.
I had a breakthrough recently and I think I have been highlighting my dark circles rather than concealing them. Not the right idea; they don’t need any more attention.
There is a simple trick, which works brilliantly.
Cover the under-eye area with a peach shade colour corrector, rather than a lighter more illuminating concealer and the dark circles are way less obvious. I have always thought to apply a brighter shade was the way to cover the dark circles.
Apply only to the dark areas under the eye socket. Follow the darker line from the inner corner down and across.
Use the concealer brush to dab and press the colour corrector onto the skin. Follow with day time foundation as normal.
The Two Best Correctors
Cle de Peau Beauté is outstanding and has excellent colours to choose from.The Radiant Corrector for eyes is easy to use and has an instant result. I am fair so use the “beige” which is a peach tone and slightly deeper than my natural pallor.
The Cle de Peau Concealer Broad Spectrum is a different formula and consistency. I use it for areas that may need more of a cover than my everyday tinted moisturizer provides. Particularly around the nose and lip area or the more than occasional red blemish that magically appears with age. Any bruising after facials or more radical treatments and this little miracle is your answer.
Shade wise, I stay with “beige”. The application is easy and the blend seamless.
With these two in my routine, the eyes got a whole lot brighter. xv
