Default Fine lines, makeup, and me. A request for help.

I have fine lines under my eyes. Since I've had them since birth and I'm only 23, I have my suspicions that they are not age-related. I also have very thin skin under my eyes (and everywhere else - you can see veins in my legs, eyelids, arms, chest, etc - I'm apparently translucent) which means I have very obvious, dark circles.

I'm currently using benefit Lemon Aid and Vincent Longo concealer, which works great color-wise, but needs a powder to set it or I have Shiny Eyes. My problem is that the powder I've tried (drugstore brands) get packed into the fine lines. I've tried makeup primers - Smashbox Photofinish, Mary Kay eye primer, stuff from Sally's beauty supply - and nothing really seems to work to keep makeup out of the lines.

Maybe it's the makeup? So I was wondering if anyone had a similar problem, and if anyone had any recommendations, or at least a magic wand they could wave and rid me of this problem. (I wish) Thanks in advance!

makeup settles in lines - there's not much you can do about it.

my only suggestion would have been a primer and you've done that.

I just read in Instyle Weddings the suggestion to use Clean & Clear Oil Absorbing Sheets instead of powder under eyes when somebody asked this same question. They said, "After putting on concealer, lightly press a sheet underneath the eye, then peel it off. This absorbs excess oil in the product but leaves the pigment and prevents creasing or a wrinkled look under the eyes."

I haven't tried it yet, but I definitely plan to!

That sounds like an excellent tip, I'm trying that tomorrow!

Try a concealer from "amazing cosmetics" it provides full coverage without looking caked and sitting in the lines. You only need a tiny bit - which is just as well as its quite expensive but IMO it is the best concealer around even better than MAC.

I got mine from QVC but you may be able to source it elsewhere. You could also check out reviews for this any other products on
