Products to reduce crepiness under eyes and make skin look more elastic and bouncy - luminescent primer?

Asking the impossible?
Hit me with it - serums, eye creams, magic luminescent powders/primers? I see women on the school run who some days wear nothing under eyes and look like I do, then the next day, made up and radiant and all smooth under the eyes.
I already use a serum, eye gel, concealer but I just look really dry and crinkly.
I don't have discolouration issues, just bags and crinkled.
Most of the primers I have are mattifying and dry out the eye more - are there any that fill in lines but are moisturising and luminescent?

For under eye hydartion is key.. If its dry products will crease n sit in the lines.

Try the bobbi brown eye cream which is around £32.. Also always use undereye creams/primer before applying any product in that area. You can also try the becca undereye corrector.

The Becca under eye corrector is amazing when you want to take the edge off the tiredness without doing a full face, you just kind of smear it on straight from the pot.

I think you're supposed to layer a proper concealer over it for proper coverage but I just use it on it's own to look fresh.

So is the becca under eye corrector also a primer?
Are there specific primers for under eyes - all the primers I have just make my skin flat and waxy looking.

The becca corrector is usually worn under concealers. So first under eye moisturiser, all over face foundation, corrector, concealer and powder to set. Thats how I do mine and have always been taught to do it. My corrector i sometimes use on its own and dont use a concealer on top for a more highlighted 'awake, rested' look

Anything with Hyaluronic Acid can help. I hear IS Clinical is very good but only about to test it. I actually find concealers making the problem worse as they really get into the wrinkles. I use Porefessional by Benefit instead. If you're interested you can read my reviews on

I'm also a fan of the becca under eye corrector. Easy to apply and doesn't sit in creases. I often just use that and the becca primer all over, which is really good for given a smooth surface with a nice glow.

Sounds good!

I find Bare Minerals tinted moisturiser gel great to look fresh and not "made up".
