- Wedding: October 2011 - Bed & Breakfast
I have regular-dry skin, and am in love with Benefit Fake-Up. I liked it so much that I stocked up on it when I had a 15% off cupon for Sephora. I made sure that I won’t be running out of it any time soon. 🙂

I swear by touche eclat by YSL. Its a miracle product, albeit quite pricey. I’ve heard that the Maybelline dream lumi is the same product for a fraction of the price but I’m too ride or die for YSL to try it out.
For concealer, I like Amazing Cosmetics cream concealer. Its full coverage, and works well for my needs.

I use the drugstore dupe of this product (made by the same parent company- L’Oreal)- the Maybellin Dream Lumi Touch- and LOVE it. I have bad under eye circles that haven’t gone away since college and was ecstatic to find this product- nothing else I’ve used works nearly as well. BUT it is not good at all for concealing blemishes fyi- I have a different concealer for that.
I second the PP that recommended the Urban Decay De-slick spray- that stuff is amazing! I got a tiny bottle for my wedding makeup & loved it so much I’ve been using it daily ever since.

My favorite at the moment is this inexpensive Maybelline concealer.
I’m not totally in love with the sponge applicator, but otherwise it works great for me and I have pretty dark circles. I used Erase Paste on my wedding day and I wasn’t that happy with it, I also found it to be rather cakey after a while.

Barbiestylez: IzzyBear: Westwood: Hmmmm, I may need to try this Maybelline one before I start trying the expensive ones. I tried the Revlon highlighter someone else mentioned and it did nada for me. No harm in popping into to Target again. (or maybe there is. it IS target after all)

I use MAC Pro Longwear Concealer also. I don’t have really dark circle but I know people who do and they love it as well. It’s all about your application techniques. Using the correct brush will go a long way. I sometime just use my ring finger when I’m in a hurry though and dab it into the skin and keep building for more coverage.

Bobbi brown creamy concealer in cool sand. I’m fair and needed a cool tone to neutralize and hide the purpley darkness and this is the only one that seems to work and stay put all day. The makeup person used the BB tinted eye brightener as well, which helped even more. It’s a bit pricey, so I don’t use that for everyday use.

I just bought the Maybelline Dream Lumi Touch highlighter thing the other day, and it seems so similar to their Dark Circle Eraser I’m not sure I’d spend the money on it again. It maybe does a tiiiiiiny bit better of a job (seriously hard to tell on myself, and I’m sure no one else notices), but you get so little product in the tube I’m not sure it’s worth it over the Eraser stuff.

I bought the Maybelline one last night and used it today. I’m impressed!! I use another product for blemishes too, this is solely undereye for me.. I don’t even know how to use it as a highlighter on other parts of my face!

You might want to try using a Vitamin K Eye Serum which I found helps constrict the blood vessels under your skin and minimizes the dark under eye circles. For concealer, I actually use benefit’s Stay Flawless foundation which is yellow based and brightens your skin. It isn’t thick and doesn’t make the skin under my eyes look dry or pasty.

I’m currently using Benefit Boi-ing and it’s the best I’ve found thus far. I tried ALL, yes, all, of the MAC concealers and they creased like crazy on me, as did the NARS concealer I tried. I’ve heard Bobbi Brown is nice too.
