Okay, since you both like Bare Minerals so much, does it cover up dark circles well? That’s what I really need help with!

There’s this great one by Mirenesse. I have the ivory pink. It’s got great coverage (I have bad acne and it covers it with no problems) and it has a bit of a shimmer to it which I think actually makes it more effective. It would be great for under the eyes because it can be used as a mild highlighter so if you blend it to your hairline it accentuates the cheekbones subtly.

Smashbox HD Concealer is my favourite.

i use physician’s formula. good coverage and stays smooth all day. i got my mom hooked on it too. i used to use mary kay, but it would get cakey on me.

Smashbox for sure!
I used to use Bare Minerals, but when it came time for wedding make-up I wanted something with better converage & that lasted longer (Texas heat is NOT kind to make-up lol)

I have the WORST dark circles under my eyes. Actually they go all the way around my eyes, and if I don’t wear makeup, I look like I’m auditioning for dawn of the dead. I also have fairly sensitive skin, so anything that will either dry my skin out or grease it up is a disaster.
BUT if you’re in my boat, I have a solution! It’s a bit of a process, but it lasts me all day at work. I start with the makeup forever full cover concealer (http://www.sephora.com/full-cover-concealer-P151107?skuId=1247204) and then with THIS eyeshadow brush (stay there eyeshadow brush by buxom, http://www.sephora.com/buxom-stay-there-eye-shadow-brush-P267313?skuId=1280239) I pat on a matte urban decay eyeshadow (shade: foxy). I have tried different combinations (different brands of concealer, different brushes, pressed powder foundation instead of the shadow) but nothing stays nearly as long. It honestly doesn’t even crease, and for some reason, it also keeps the eyeliner in my waterline from smudging!
Dusting a highlighting shimmer under the eyes also diminishes dark circles, at least in pictures. I always add that, as well as a light shimmery shadow in the inside corner when I know my picture will be taken.
Hope this helps!

I just bought THE BEST concealer of all time. I’ve tried tons, but this one from By Terry blows everything else out of the water!
