If it’s discoloration you then need to try a concealer with a colour in it to counteract the colour you’re trying to disguise but to be honest concealer won’t conceal puffiness. The ordinary have a caffeinated serum that helps lighten discoloration and reduce puffiness. Tbh I’d be going that route instead of using a really heavy duty concealer around the delicate skin surrounding the eye.

If you’re looking for an insane coverage ( the smallest dot would cover so much) then I would recommend the Kevyn Aucoin sensual skin enhancer. You can mix it with a moisturizer for a medium coverage foundation. But that’s like if you want absolutely no imperfections showing.

I’m in work, thinking I buy way too much makeup
What about one for a bit of a glow Shoes? I sometimes look dark and shadowy under my eyes.


Still in work!

Have you tried the Laura mercier brightening powder for under eyes? I’d really recommend that! More so than a concealer tbh

Any craft interests? Learn a new skill? I spend a lot of time off my feet and knit, etc

About to detach the furry, purry black limpet that is firmly attached to my wrist so I can make a drink...

About to go and get passport photos done (again!) Hoping this time they’ll be decent enough and I’ll be able to apply for it without any hassle

Fireside with no plans for the weekend, bliss. None of the usual Friday evening gang that we meet in the local are around this evening, so it'll be a night by the fire watching a bit of horse racing and the rugby match later

Car, on the way to Dublin with the daddy to spoil him rotten.

To add to the concealer debate I just use an old natural collection one I've had a few years, I have a green one for my red cheeks I get from booze, a peach one for under my eyes and a purple one that came in the pack and I never figured out what it did! But layer them on under foundation and they do the trick for me!

I got my sister the touche eclat one for Christmas and was thinking of getting myself the same. I've very dark circles under my eyes, even with concealer and foundation you can see them and I've been asked if I had a black eye before

On the couch playing Recettear, not sure if I like it yet.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY. The next forty will be the best years as you're now old enough not to give tuppence for other people's opinions.
After that you can behave disgracefully for another twenty!!
