How to Cover Dark Circles Under your Eyes

Step 1 – Use a great base eyelid moisturizer like the  Lumiere Riche by NeoCutis.

Step 2  – For a great base concealer try the MAC Mineralize Concealer (but don’t buy this on the web – they need to color match you the first time) AND apply it with MAC brush 188 (not the usual one they recommend for eyes  – but better.)

Spot it on with the concealer brush over the whole eye area, blend a little with fingers and then blend with the brush over the whole area.

Step 3 – Correct the dark circle with the  Colorescience Mineral Corrector –  comes with a good brush – it also can cover red or brown acne spots, bruises, etc.

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
