I'm 28 and have inflammatory arthritis . The tiredness has taken its toll on my face and I'm sick of looking ill.

I'd love to get some new decent makeup. Does anyone have any concealer and foundation recommendations ? I have dark circles under my eyes so I'd really like something with full coverage.

I also have a voucher for bobbi brown so if any one has anything to recommend there that'd be great. I'm lacking in confidence at the moment so a bit reluctant to go to the makeup counter .

the bobbi brown tinted moisturiser is lovely. really good coverage and very dewy. I'm not a foundation person but I'm sure others can advise.

have you thought about a coloured concealer then normal concealer on top? like one of these: www.muastore.co.uk/prime-conceal-correcting-cream

what colour are your dark circles? mine are purplish so the shade I need the yellow one on my circles, then I use a concealing highlighting pen. I use the clinique one. it works really well and you dont end up looking like a clown I promise!

I find blusher gives me an instant lift too. something pink on your cheeks can make you look much more alive.

look after yourself.
