@Lyndzo:  Great. I have rosacea and a green corrector under makeup will help with the redness? MMMM how come nobody knows of these”correctors?  I will give it a try. Thanks!

Have you tried BeneFit’s Erase Paste?  That’s a great concealer.

Benefit has great concelers but also brightening products. I have struggled with finding a good under eye product for a long time. I use a combination of products from benefit but they have an undereye brightening product and it has a pink tone instead of yellow, it works great, it’s called ooh la lift. It covers and brightens at the same time, I use powders over it to blend and get good results. You should just go to some different makeup counters and tell them your issue, see what they apply and see if you like the results. There are products that work for you, don’t give up! Good luck!

@Lyndzo:  YES! This…YELLOW toned concealer. Almay makes a great one and it’s available at Walgreens that won’t break the bank.

two words: BOBBI BROWN!

Her concealer is amazing for dark circles. My best friend is Indian and has dark circles as well and I swear it is amazing. I was converted. It is a lil expensive ($50) but SO worth it!

@garden_bride: I’m italian with the same hereditary circles you have. Just know not to get suckered into expensive creams claiming to help circles, b/c they will not have affect on hereditary ones. I have never tried bobbi browns, but what you need to do is find the right concealer that you can use for, well, ever. You should go on ebay or sephora, or whichever has sample sizes so not to waste too much$ personally I using amazing concealer by amazing cosmetics.

I have worked in cosmetics for 5 years, and this is the best for concealing. Vichy Dermablend– go for the cover up stick- around $30 🙂 They covered up a guy who had tons of tattoos and he looked amazing after! This stuff is the standard. Professionals use it on tattoos before weddings and they use it in some cosmetology schools.

This link shows (above) what it does.

Here is the stick (above).

There is a powder that goes with it (below). Together these products will last and cover all day!

Good luck!

@ciaradal:  ok I have the same problem–I blame my american indian and italian heritage. 

#1 you need a good eye cream, preferably with vitamin K

#2 go to a dermatoligist and see if he thinks hydroquinone cream is a good idea. I got this and it faded most of the brown pigmented area away, leaving just a bit of shadow. From the looks of your eyes your primary problem is darker pigment not blood vessels–hydroquinone cream works wonders on this

#3 You need a good BB cream all over–it’s good if you don’t like heavy foundation and it covers a lot. I suggest Skin79 Pink or Gold–Missha Perfect Cover–or The Face Shop Power perfection Bb cream

#4 You need a yellow corrector to cancel out the purplish tones–physicians formular makes a good yellow stick corrector and it’s cheap

#5 a nice light concealer that won’t cake up–if you’re still seeing a lot of darkness try dermablend–otherwise skin79 makes a great bb concealer–or try benefit boing

@ciaradal:  you need to go to a dermatologist to determine what the reason for the dark circles is. It could be hyperpigmentation OR it could be a lack of fat padding under the eyes. The treatment for these two different things is different

You need something with green to cancel out the red pigments in your skin.  This is definitely something that can be covered up with makeup.  For your actual wedding day, I strongly suggest hiring a professional makeup artist.  Do a trial and you’ll be amazed at the results.  Plus, they can teach you what they did and then you can do it yourself.
