Yellow Concealer for Eye Circles

(14 Posts)

I have massive bluey-black circles underneath my eyes which I am so self conscious about. They get worse over the course of the week as I get more tired so come Friday I look like I've got two black eyes and, TBH, I dread going out sad

I have read about yellow concealer to help disguise them but I'm struggling to find which is best.

I don't particularly like 'stick' concealers as I find they dry out over the day and clog in the wrinkles lines under my eyes. So I think I'm after a creme-type one but I'm finding it hard to find a consensus online about the best one to buy.

Do MNers have any suggestions or experiences of good ones?

Thanks- any help is very much appreciated

Lemon Aid by benefit but you will need to set any concealer with a powder to make sure it doesn't clog up.

Try Bobbi Brown's under eye corrector. It's not yellow toned, it's peach (as peach is at the opposite side of the colour wheel and therefore will cancel out a bluish undertone) but works very well.

Lemon Aid is great (used sparingly).

I use the clinique one that comes in a squeezy tube its excellent. Nars also do a great one in a tube with an applicator but the buggers discontinued my shade. Suitable for other areas of the face too.

lemonaid is amazing but MUA do a good copy of it and a lot cheaper and just as good imo

You're all awesome, thank you. I'm going to try the Lemon Aid first and see how I get on with that.

Can anyone link to the MUA copy of the Lemon Aid please?

MAC do a very good, dual ended colour corrector with lemon on one end and peach on the other. As pp say, use this under your regular concealer.

Not yellow,you need a peach coloured liquid concealer.

I have horrendous purple bags (sound lovely)I use Max Factor yellow corrector crayon with my Collection concealer ontop and it is very good.It doesn't crease for me.

I do exactly the same as sonata so I won't repeat!

Soap & Glory do a good one, kick ass concealer I think it's called, it comes with a pink toned concealer too.
