Anyone found a way to resolve this issue? I have very fine creases and dark circles under my eyes (Thanks to DS not sleeping and a complete lack of sleep) my concealer seems to sink into these creases and makes me look all wrinkly! I know I cant completely fix this issue but are there any secrets to help? I currently use a primer and beauty blender.

i have a similar problem and use a primer, then concealer, followed by a tiny bit of loose powder. I've also started using a daily eye cream to keep the area hydrated.

Becca so far I've done all those things but nothing seems to be helping blush

NARS Radiant Creamy Concealer is amazing for not creasing. Fairly pricey but worth it.

Baking completely changed this for me. Sounds ridiculous but have a look on YouTube.

You basically use a sponge to press loads of loose powder under your eye, wait a while and they brush it away. It's amazing and makes it completely crease free and flawless 😊

Buzz I tried baking but it makes me entire eye area feel tight and dry. Do you use primer?

Gotta I purchased this before but ended up with the wrong colour! Maybe I will give it another go. What's the coverage like?

That's weird, I've just done my make up to test. My under eye is the opposite! Soft and smooth as anything.
So I just use a moisturiser before my foundation and put an eye cream on at night. I use the Rimmel wake up concelear which is only like £4 I think (I've also heard the opposite about the Nars concealer from a friend as I was about to buy it- she said it was clumpy and creasey)
I use a real techniques sponge to put my concealer on then use the same sponge and the Clinique invisible loose powder to bake. I do my eyebrows and lips while I wait and then dust off with a brush. I particularly like that you look like you've snorted cocaine when you bake around your nose 👌🏽

I sometimes use a colour corrector first if I'm looking particularly like I've been punched in the eye

I have this problem , not helped by the fact that 1. I am 54 , and 2. I use a magnifying mirror to check for creasing.

The only under eye concealer I have found that doesn't sit in the lines is
it's stupidly expensive though.

Clarins instant light one is also good , not as fab as the armani one though .

The coverage is excellent. I went to the NARS counter to get the colour matched.

Gotta I've ordered it grin will see how I get on with it!

yy to loads of moisturising. The only ones I've been really happy with are Maybelline Age Rewind and Bourjois healthy mix.

Let us know how you find it! If it's going to be a long day (like most!) I also set mine with Laura Mercier translucent powder to make it last. This doesn't cause creasing like a lot of powders seem to.

I have slightly crepey undereyes with hereditary dark circles. I color-correct with a very small amount of the lightest shade of Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum applied with an Elf concealer brush. It's amazing.

I also have Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer and Bobbi Brown Light Bisque but rarely reach for those. They tend to look too heavy on.

The more product I pile on, the more cakey and flakey the final result. I find loose powder quite drying and greasy products tend to melt and migrate.

Urban Decay's eye primers are amazing for stopping creasing, I use mine under my eye before Mac concealer and baking with Laura Mercier and it always lasts the day without creasing.

Polaar does a rollerball eye brightener that is fab for night time; I wake up without dark circles every time I remember to use it.

thestarryeyedsurprise Sun 26-Feb-17 12:26:15

Whoooo I will try that primer thank you - out of interest what foundation do you use aswell? I use estee Lauder as I love the coverage but think it's quite 'cakey' tried nars this morning but it's settling in the creases :/

thestarryeyedsurprise Sun 26-Feb-17 12:48:53

Whooo is it this one?

WhooooAmI24601 Sun 26-Feb-17 15:11:20

Yes, that's the fella. They make a few types though, so check out which one might suit your skin first; if you can get to an UD counter they'll give you lots of samples to try.

I use ELDW but need to have their Perfectionist serum underneath as it is too heavy otherwise. My absolute favourite at the moment is Armani's Luminous Silk foundation. It is immense. Chanel's Les Beiges is also lovely, but the GA one can't be beaten for that glowy-skin I have desperately searched for!
