Admittedly I am chronically knackered and waking up 35 times a night every time I turn over doesn't help at all. And the hideous hayfever which makes my eyes itch and run. And te sunblock which also makes my eyes itch and run.
How can I at least try to minimise the sunken eyes and black circles?
Crevix you need to put a decent concealer in the right place-don't paint in the half moon under your eye, take it right down over sunken edge onto cheek and blend really well. Also do nasty blue bit down bridge of nose near eye and shadows on outer corner of eye
i don't wear makeup more than once in a blue moon. also am a sensitive soul and loads of stuff make the itchy, runny eyes moreso. if i were to concele under the eyes would it look ridiculous with a nekkid rest of face?
wear sunglasses if any chance of having photo taken...I share your pain. Bobbi Brown concealer and make up lesson good. Also very taken with their eye cream. Have decided that hydration to minimise lines and then concealment is the way to go - have not found anything that gets rid of rather than covers the dark circles.
the best i've found is benefits boi-ing really lasts make sure you moisturise before or it can be drying. Benefits erase a paste quite nice more moisturising but doesn't last all day. I read somewhere about using benefits lemon aid under your eyes before concealer but i don't think it really makes a difference.
Next on my list to try is bobbi browns corrector and separate concealer, i have used bobbi brown in the past and was very impressed just don't live very close to one.
Don't bother with those highlighter type pens - no good for really bad circles.
