Any drug store suggestions for under eye? i feel like i have horrible dark circles
i used to use bare minerals but it doesn’t seem like it works anymore. also used smashbox or something like that from ulta but just not cutting it!

I use Glamoflage by Hard Candy. It’s $6 at walmart. You use a tiny bit and it covers very well. Then I cover it with a mineral foundation. I have VERY dark circles and it works great.

You don’t have to use conclear, get even better eyes by clinque. it’s the most amazing eye cream ever. It will make your eyes look and feel better.

@Dancensations: Here are some drugstore concealers I’ve used for that area and that I have loved:
-Revlon Colorstay concealer (the one with the doe foot applicator)
-Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Under Eye concealer
-Maybelline Fit Me concealer

Maybelline Fit Me is a great drugstore brand

I’ve heard good things about the Maybelline Fit Me, but I haven’t tried it.
I like the Maybelline Instant Agre Rewind. It covers everything and lasts very well on me. I’m on my second “tube” of this stuff and I still use it everyday. And I’m normally a makeup product junkie, jumping between different things all the time.
And I should menton that I only use this under my eyes, I think it’s probably a little thin to be a concealer to cover dark spots or blemishes on the face. It is slightly light reflective, which creates a nice brightening effect. But if you’re looking for it for your wedding, I’d just make sure to test it out with flash photography. Sometimes mine will look a little too bright, but that could just be my shade and skin tone!

I have pretty bad circles myself and I found Maybelline Instant Age Rewind on a youtube video. I’ve been using it for the last 10 months and it works great. It’s more of a liquid and you just glide it on your face(I also use it as a highlighter). One of these have lasted me 10 months btw

@Dancensations: not drug store but the BEST concealer on the planet: Amazing Concealer by Amazing. You can find it at Ulta..not sure if Sephora carries it or not. People also really like Laura Mercier but I’ve never used it. Amazing is worth the $20 and it will last you for a year. I have been using it for 6 years now..I’ve never bought another brand. I know you asked for drugstore brand but I can never resisit promoting this concealer because I’m so obsessed with it…I’ve had a few converts too haha

The best thing I have ever used is by Benefit. It is called “Stay, dont stray” and it is AMAZING. I have issues with dark circles and every concealer I have tried likes to cake up in my fine lines. This is the only product I have ever tried that doesnt do that, and covers flawlessly. It is actually meant to be a base for concealer so that it wont move but I use it alone and it does the job. You can try a sample of it if you go into
Sephora and ask, just to see if it works for you. It is kind of pricey, about $26, but you can find the trial packs sometimes for $10 with other trial things included. That, and mascara are my makeup splurges.

@ThunderStruck: hahaha I thought I double posted, and then realized it was yours! I like to include the picture because all of the different names of things can get caught up and confusing..but it’s easy to remember the concealer that looks like a bingo dobber!

i have extremely dark circles under my eyes- to the point where i look like i got punched in the face if i didn’t get at least 7 hours of sleep! i have a specific regimen that works for me.
clinique even better eyes dark circle corrector twice daily. i have been using it for about 5 months and i have already noticed a HUGE improvement in my dark circles. http://www.sephora.com/even-better-eyes-dark-circle-corrector-P374841
every morning, i make my tea, and after i have seeped the tea bag i put it in the fridge while i do my hair and get dressed. then, before doing my makeup, i press the cooled tea bag into my eyes for a few minutes. i have been doing this since i was younger (my mom, who also has dark circles, taught me) and i swear by it. it makes the circles lighter and reduces puffiness.
time balm concealer by the balm. this is one of the few concealers that i have used that is thick enough to cover my dark cicrles, but doesn’t cake up or fall into my wrinkles throughout the day. a very little goes a long way. it’s amazing. http://www.soap.com/p/thebalm-timebalm-anti-wrinkle-concealer-277870
try to get enough sleep, eat healthy (berries contain antioxident pigments and do wonders for the skin around your eyes), don’t smoke, lay off the salt, drink tons of water, and be happy!

oh- and i know you were looking for drugstore products.. clinique is obviously a little pricier than drugstore stuff, but the time balm is only $18 at soap.com and the always have discount codes for new customers. right now, you can get 15% off your first order with the code soapsplash. good luck!
