@erinbacher:  Revlon PhotoReady Eye Primer and Highlighter!!!! $7-$10 from a drug store! Seriously the BEST thing for dark circles under the eyes. I even wear this when I’m not wearing makeup. You don’t need much, so this product lasts me several months. Well worth the price!

Also, not sure if this works, but I take a warm rag, hold it over my eyes for about 2 minutes and then tap underneath my eye. I was told this stimulates blood flow and makes dark circles less noticable. However, I know the product I suggested works like a freakin charm!

It’s a bit expensive but Kate Somerville has a dark circle prodicut from the CytoCell line that has really helped my dark circles go away.  I also swear by Nars concealer. It’s thick but doesn’t cake up in fine lines (urg fine lines…I’m getting old).

Healthy diet, LOTS of water, multivitamin and lots of good sleep.

sometimes dark circles can be hereditary, see if your mum/grandmother has them, it can be tiny blood vessles under the skin. if this is the case your best friend will be a concealer go with peach or apricot undertones as this will camouflage the darkness. I love Youngblood Mineral Cosmetics. hope this helps.

last time I had a facial the woman recommended a serum with peptides.  I just ordered some and it should come tomorrow, so I will let you know how it goes.  I have also been making sure to put my moisturizer with suncreen close to my eye so I don’t get more sun damage.

The Garnier roller is really nice – cheap and gets good press from various Youtube Gurus – Garnier Anti-Dark-Circle Eye Roller (I use the yellow-tinted one).  It’s nice because it’s lightweight and made for eyes, unlike a lot of heavier, thicker concealers.  It’s buildable, too.  I use it under another product.  You can get it at any drugstore or Target/Walmart type place.

I have crazy dark circles that are definitely hereditary (my 8 month old nephew even has them and there’s no way that he’s sleep deprived!) so I have learned the art of covering them up. This blog post may help, she also recommends the garnier roller, I haven’t tried it yet tho.

Hope it helps!

Ohhh dark circles…..the bain of my exsistence!
Mine are hereditary for sure.
I use the Garnier Anti-Dark circle roll on as well, and then I use Maybelline Dark Circle eraser concealer on top. This works wonders and looks great.
