Hello, I know this is a first world problem but I'm back to work tomorrow after the Christmas break and I look worse now than when we left for Christmas. I work in a very professional, suits type attire, full make up and well groomed hair type environment and now in my mid 40s I'm no longer able to just slap on a slick of tinted moisturiser, some gloss and Hey Presto!
So, to look as well as I can and diminish the dark circles...what product is a 'fan favourite' here for the 40+ group?
My self esteem seems low, I'm tackling it and giving myself a good talking to, but if I can improve my circles enough so people don't keep asking if I'm tired, that would be immensely helpful to kick start my year!

I love Revlon's Youth FX concealer

@MrHaroldFry I found Kevyn Aucion's Sensual Skin Enhancer Concealer excellent. Good range of tones for paler skin too.

Has some get reviews on Makeup Alley, which I find useful before I purchase any makeup.
It is highly pigmented, so you only need to use a tiny amount. I personally think it's best used with a moisturising foundation just to thin it out a bit.They used to sell it in Harvey Nics in Dublin and I think the price was around €50. You can order it online on Strawberrynet but the important tax is high, around €25. HTHsmile

If you would prefer not to use foundation over it then use Laura Mercier’s secret concealer (you can get it at Skn). It’s medium coverage and looks perfectly natural.

Space NK on Grafton Street sell Kevin Aucion.
Space NK has a concession in Harvey Nicks in Dundrum also.
