The delicate skin under your eyes is so different from the rest of the skin on your face- which is why many use a separate moisturizer for their eye area (it is the first part of the face to age). I also believe it’s important to use a separate concealer, not only to correct the different discolouration (relative to blemishes, scars, rosacea, broken capillaries, etc) but also because of the different texture. I’ve been using the MAC Pro Longwear Concealer since it was first launched by MAC… and I’ve never found anything that tops it!
This concealer lasts all day, doesn’t crease (in fact, it’s so crease-resistant, I sometimes use it as an eye primer as well) and it looks natural. I use an NW shade (pink undertone) to counteract the blue undertone in dark circles for a more natural appearance. The application takes a little while to perfect- it sets fast, so I prefer to use thin layers (about 2-3) to build coverage under my eyes. It’s the only concealer that doesn’t crease on me. The ONLY one. The coverage isn’t the best, it’s about medium, but the staying power makes it worth it. If I’m having an extra bad dark circle day, I’ll pop a little Bobbi Brown Corrector on top of the darkest areas too.
