Bye Bye Under Eye
When the early mornings call it's always hard to look in the mirror and see those lovely dark under eyes. After starting uni again after Christmas, I have to say I haven't missed them one bit.
Before concealing those bad boys I will always reach for something that is going to de-puff, cool and hydrate. Lately that has been The Body Shop Vitamin C Eye Reviver Duo (13.00), this is the perfect way to help reduce your bags in the morning when time is short. As the name suggests there's two parts to this. The first is a cooling gel which is dispersed through a rollerball, which I love. And the second is a simple eye cream which is lightweight and a great base for concealer.
When it comes to covering, correctors with a salmony undertone are great for cancelling out the blues and purples that tend to lurk around in the mornings. As for concealers, I never like them to be drying, which normally means straying away from those that are heavy duty. However if you want something thats the best of both worlds the Bobbi Brown Concealer Kit (£24.00) is great. I got this in a couple shades lighter than my skin tone to really brighten the area. This is a heavy concealer, but I don't find it to be drying or cakey with an eye cream or serum underneath. It also comes with a handy powder which you can use to set your concealer in place, and I have to say these two really do work a treat at covering up my dark circles.
