Benefit Boi-ing

I second the Boi-ing suggestion. I stopped using it for a while and relied only upon YSL Touche d'Eclat but have staretd again as it gives good coverage and is a very natural colour. I am into the YSL Airbrush foundation (the one with the brush) at the moment and don't need much concealor with it. I have 2 spots on my chin which it has disguised nicely.

I am using the Aldi 'touche eclat' is very good value

According to the fab Benefit girl in my local Debenhams Boi-ing is not great for dark circles. I have Benefit Erase Paste and it is amazing!!

Erase paste and bobbi brown eye brightner are very similar products and are both v good for under eye shadows.

I am using no. 7 version of YSL and I rate it. And I am your archetypal (sp?) panda.

tesco make up is good for spots, just put a tiny bit on a brush though and pat in. it's a little too heavy for under eyes though, found the same with boing grin

Bobbi Brown concealer. Laura Mercier does one which is two seperate ones: a creamy undereye one and a more powdery one for spots.
Don't use touche eclat on spots. It't a highlighter, not really a'll only draw attention to them!

the Laura Mercier duo for spots ( too heavy for under eyes) and YSL touche eclat for undereyes.
I have used everything. Those are the best and last the longest

I use Benefit Erase paste atm and also Powderflage.

Tesco Barbara Daly cosmetics seem v good. I have an eyelid 'primer' by her and it is fab. Could probably use that on under eye circles too.

I also use the No.7 version of the YSL pen. Makes me look human again!

Third vote for Boi-ing. Love it. Even covers a scar I have on my cheek, but weirdly is not too heavy under eyes.

i did a course in makeup and they taught me a fantastic tip for under eye concealer.

that is, use darker concealer than you use elsewhere on your face, as if you use the same colour, it draws attention to the darker areas.

so you use a browny colour, put your foundation over, then you can pat in a light yellowy colour around the eye area to make the area look brighter.
