lots of moisturizer, no tugging.  eye creams take a few weeks to start seeing a change, take photos, because yous ee yourself daily you wont always see it, but photos will show it.  consider a pro makeup personal that can specialize in coverage.  dont cake on the makeup, they have tricks!

Commenting to follow, because I have a similar problem. The best cover-up I’ve found is Bye Bye Undereye by IT Cosmetics. If you have an Ulta nearby, I definitely recommend going to try it! Not sure how it’ll do with the wrinkles/sagginess, but for covering up dark colors it is amazing. If I feel like I need a little bit more coverage, I top it off with Benefit’s Erase Paste.

I have the same issue and usually wear glasses because I haven’t found anything that covers up the dark baggy skin very well. I chose to have my makeup done professionally for my wedding because I wanted to wear my contacts.

Also, commenting to follow to see if anyone has a good solution so I can ditch my glasses more often!

I have horrible dark circles under my eyes. I shop around to find the best concealer (which is always changing) and realize that even the “best” one won’t be able to cover them like I wish it would. A lot of it is just coming to terms with “this is how I look”.

Lisasaurusrex:  Do you get enough sleep and enough to drink ? Like 8 glasses a day? And exercise? I’m wondering if this could make a leeeetle difference over time, as well as the coverage other Bees are suggesting.

Sometimes it’s good to work from the Inside outwards if you’ve hit a low point to take additional action and by all means do what you can on the surface too of course. It sounds like you’ve found something cool.

My estitician swears by under eye injectables. Not sure if you are looking for something that invasive or not, but my experience with any kind of creams so far has been, they simply don’t work. I’m not a doctor, but if you have a medical spa or a cosmetic surgery center near you, you should reach out and see what they tell you. My friend swears by it. Apparently the darkness is the way the light is reflected on the skin based on the lack of volume in that area. ?

I follow the blog Maskara. She’s great with make-up and photography, etc. She gets injectables. Read here: http://www.maskcara.com/2014/01/09/under-eye-bag-confessions/

Like I said, this is something more intense than a cream, but if you are concerned with the bags, I suppose it’s something to look into. To be honest, I’ll probably do this myself when I can afford it!

Lisasaurusrex:  could it be a sluggish liver? I mean for the discoloration (not wrinkles) I’ve no idea but it wouldn’t harm to introduce things like artichokes (liver also doesnt like alcohol) although if you’re drinking enough in general the liver wouldn’t need to take on the kidneys’ role at least.

I’ve always had really dark underye circles, even when I was just a little kid. This sounds a little sensationalist and diet-bandwagony but when I stopped eating wheat, dairy, simple sugars, artificial sweeteners and alcohol my entire complexion improved, ESPECIALLY under my eyes.

I really wish I took a before and after photo because even looking at myself everyday, I can notice a substantial difference. Only two weeks into it, I started looking at my face and going “wooooow I look awesome” hahah

Unfortunately, it only took a wedding weekend of eating and drinking whatever I wanted to make me look pretty haggard again, so it’s a lifestyle change.

My mother has struggled with her eyes since she was my age and recently she told me about a product called Rox flawless eye cream she saw on TV, which made me a bit skeptical at first, but there’s a YouTube video showing how to apply it and you can see the women’s bags disappear as the skin gets tighter so it’s something to consider. I think it triggers a minor allergic reaction to tighten the skin and has ingredients to combat the redness and swelling, so maybe don’t try it if you have sensitive skin or allergies already. I’d also recommend Sheer Cover or any similar reflective mineral powder.
