Elevate you head while sleeping, take antihistamines, no salty foods at night, and use eye cream that builds collagen. Under the eye is so see-through that the collagen will help to tighten and thicken skin so it’s not so paper thin. Also, if you are fair skinned, use a salmon colored concealer under or over (lightly) your foundation. The salmon hue is perfect for covering the bluish purple area.

P.s. I have problems with these too! I rely on allegra and my sample of hylexin (spelling) eye cream. Oh, and drink loads of water too!

Ok so I recently saw a YouTube video where a girl showed that if you put orange lipstick before you put on your foundation you can fade out the black/purple color under your eyes, I try it and it was like magic!!

Get lots of sleep, drink plenty of water, and no alcohol or junk food.  I had the same problem with undereye circles.  Thank goodness for good concealer!!!

I started using a great dual eye cream / gel from Avon (Anew Clinical) which my makeup pro recommended about six months before our wedding.  I definitely noticed a difference in the dark circles and puffiness that usually linger around my eyes, and my makeup pro told me my skin looked much better!  (I’ve also started using a face scrub twice and week and LOVE it.)

I have battled dark circles too.  I finally went to Sephora and tried on about 87 different concealors before finding one I loved!  I had tried Benefit Erase Paste, but it was kinda gloopy and sticky even I’ve heard that several people swear by it!  I ended up buying Laura Mercier Undercover Pot.  It has a concealor, brightener, and translucent powder to set everything.  It is not too sticky and is the first concealor that has actually worked for me!!!

Hope that helps!
