It seems like I’m always complaining about the dark circles under my eyes, but they’re truly my very own personal Enemy No. 1. They’re genetic (thanks, Grandpa), they’re purplish-blue, and they’re here to stay.
Even if I am perfectly rested and hydrated, if I don’t pile on the concealer, I constantly hear the same refrain from my co-workers, people I run into during the workday or weekend, etc.: “You look so tired!” “Are you getting enough sleep?” “You must be working so hard!”
Truth: I might be tired. I might not be getting enough sleep. I definitely do work very hard.
But when I’m feeling happy and refreshed, not tired, and not overworked, the absolute last thing I want to hear is someone commenting on the fact that I absolutely do not look as if I am feeling any of those things.
So. Before I discovered natural beauty, I spent years on the hunt for the perfect concealer. It was like searching for the holy grail—except I think in this case, the holy grail is actually an eye cream that makes them disappear entirely! (That search is ongoing as well.)
I never found the one, but I did settle on a combination of concealers, which I varied depending on whether I paired one with liquid foundation, tinted moisturizer, or mineral makeup. Now that I’m firmly in the natural and organic beauty camp, the hunt is on all over again. I blogged about my last discovery a while ago, and now I’m ready to share my latest find in this epic battle to defeat my dark undereye circles. Read on for my review!Pin It
