Beauty Buzz: “Ask Amy” tackles dark circles

What can I do to hide my dark under-eye circles?

If a good night’s sleep and a little “me” time is not on your calendar, a great concealer is your best friend. The perfect concealer is one to two shades lighter than your foundation, will not crease under the eyes, and blends to a semi-matte finish. My two favorites are from Lancome: Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Concealer and Maquicomplet Complete Coverage Concealer. Both are great under the eyes and hold up well when set with a dab of sheer loose powder.

Seriously dark circles (like mine) require an extra step. I love Bobbi Brown’s Corrector in “Light Bisque”. It’s a pink gel-like cream that neutralizes blue undereye darkness and serves as a primer for your regular concealer. Yes it’s one more step in your makeup routine, but I promise, it’s worth it!
