I use clinique's moisture rich undereye cream before applying concealer. It's not cheap and frankly it does nothing to help the dryness I have under my eyes. When I put concealer on it all wrinkles and looks cakey and the area feels tight and dry.

I've been using the benefit under eye cream and it has made a huge difference.

The dryness has gone and my dark circles have almost disappeared.

I had mine as a free sample but will definitely be getting it again.

Whoops posted too soon.

Once the skin is better anything you put over the top should sit better.

Try an illuminating concealer for under the eyes and preferably something without powder in it.
