Best for Dark Circles

What is a good concelar for under the eye. I have used Lancome for several years now. It seems like it isn't working. It is getting into those little fine lines and making them look awful. My dark circles are bad but, have been worse before and this makeup covered them up great. I went to a wedding the other night and my makeup looked awful. My dark circles looked bad and my lines looked bad. I looked like I was much older than I am!!
a yellow-toned concealer is best for dark circles. the ones in pen format are great because they aren't thick and you can add more where needed - YSL Touche Eclat is one, Clairins, Laura Gellar, Clinique and Physician's Formula have them too.

i've heard good things about Bo-ing from Benefit and i have several different MAC concealers myself!

I was hoping you would reply Rou!!! I knew that you would know a good one. Something from MAC! Anyway, the yellow based ones make my dark circles look green. It looks scarey. I use Clinque foundation maybe I will try the concelar also. I also, want to try the Benfit stuff.
Thanks for the suggestions! You are awsome at Makeup!!!
you're very welcome, my dear!

if you don't mind spending more than a few $$$$, i highly recommend Becca concealer. you get two colours in one compact and they have an amazing range of colours to suit just about every skin tone going. the shades range from neutral to fair to pink to medium to olive to golden brown to chocolately to deep bronze.

it's $35 US at Sephora.

I was shown how to put it on with a brush. I guess you could just use your finger though. The sales girl loaded the brush with some concealor and then sort of smoothed it on right up to the lash line. It's hard to explain because I wasn't watching in the mirror!

I have had blood work done before. Nothing is wrong internally (sp). Just have them really bad. They look awful somedays. I am going to try some new things that you guys suggested. Thanks.
I find the older I get, the more I should avoid concealer under my eyes. No matter what you do, it settles in the lines, and emphasises them, rather than conceals.

These days, a lot of companies make reflective powders. I know it seems counter intuitive, but I get the best results by just VERY lightly brushing on a bit of reflective powder in the dark areas on my inner eyes and the dark circles under my eyes.

There are lots of them, but I use something called You Glow Girl and also April's Mix by http://www.pureluxecosmetics.com/wst_page4.html
So Redcatwaves to you mix the 2 together?? I have been wanting to try something like that. I am too chicken. This has samples I can try! So, how do you use it??
No, I don't mix them together. They are both separate illuminating products. You Glow Girl is lighter, so I mostly use that for under/inner eye. I like the April's Mix as an all-over finishing powder, but it works nicely for undereye/inner-eye highlighting too.
I find the older I get, the more I should avoid concealer under my eyes. No matter what you do, it settles in the lines, and emphasises them, rather than conceals.

Your hair, it's everywhere. Screaming infidelities, taking its wear.
