    Stick concealer. Liquid sucks, IMO.

    I got mine off the internet, it was WAY cheaper even with postage & import taxes!!!! If you can't find it in the shops try googling for it.... Good Luck!

    Someone brought up to me that part of the dark circles around the eye could be a pigmentation issue - a skin issue, rather than a circulation issue. I did notice in using Retin-A regularly, it evened out skin tone all over, including around my eyes. It helped, but wow they're still there and getting worse with age.

    I stopped using liner under my eyes on days where my circles were godawful. Instead I lined more heavily on the top lid and used a bit more mascara on my lower lashes to get some definition. I'm careful with lip shades that have a strong blue undertone because it can wind up highlighting/complementing the blue under my eyes LOL.

    ETA: I already blabbed my make-up info earlier in this thread - you can tell this topic is near and dear to my heart.

    I have v dark circles too - even when I get enough sleep and drink tonnes of water.

    I also have mega pale skin so I'm thinking that's part of it too. The dark circles just show through the skin more?

    I use the concealer lighting touch stuff from the Body Shop. It works pretty decently on the not so bad days but when I am tired and dehydrated it's not quite enough. Good luck!

    I'm actually using a pure white stick - literally what mimes would wear, lol, but I'm pale enough to have that work with my skin, especially with how dark my circles are.

    I found the paler you are, the more the blue tones won't work well, since that's usually the color of what you're hiding. I guess it wouldn't matter as much if you're willing to put it on thick, but ew.

    I saw a make-up artist yesterday work with a pure white eyeliner pencil, one of the fat ones with a thick tip. The client was young, very young, but had two kids and two matching dark bags under her eyes. He used a very light, but not white, concealer stick applied with a brush on the circles. Great application! I think that's going to be my next trick. Then he used the white liner under her lower lash line (immediately brightening) and on her upper lash line as a base. He swiped it over her brow bone and a little in the crease (this is all blended), and then put it along the highest point of her cheekbone. He did use some color, like blush and shadow, but using the white to reflect light in those spots was really a great trick.

    Bah, I have dark circles as well...yeah, they suck!

    Mine are pretty severe because I've suffered sleep troubles pretty much my whole life...

    I just use concealer and am going to go on the hunt for some cream...I should try this Hylexin? stuff that everyone keeps mentioning.

    The brain doesn't need blood. It just needs to be kept wet.
