Under Eye Circles

Posted by on Feb. 8, 2012 at 10:07 AM

I recently went on a diet and lost 15 lbs. I have always had under eye circles, bc it ran in my family. (And under eye bags too.) But since I have lost weight, they stand out BIG TIME. I have 4 little ones running around, so an expensive eye cream isnt going to happen. But, I now look alot older. (I suddenly wish I had never lost the weight!) Does anyone have any inexpensive suggestions? Concealer just isnt cutting it any more...

In this pic, I had concealer, and regular makeup on. I looked so tired in this pic....

Yours are a lot better than mine. I haven't figured out a solution either. I hide mine with glasses. I heard yellow concealer works, but it didn't touch mine. My circles are my biggest problem :(

dr. oz says to NOT sleep flat, sleep with your head elevated and  potato slices are better than cucumber slices, to put on your eyes :)

I went to this make up seminar last night and I also have dark eye circles and the instructer told me that using peach powder under the eye hides dark skin colors better then did it on me last night  and I was amazed at how good it looked

I have no clue. I just use concealer and foundation. I have puffy bags under my eyes sometimes if I haven't slept enough but I have yet to find a solution to that. You are gorgeous btw and I didn't really notice thr under eye circles unless I looked really hard :)

 :) Thank you. I just finished trying the tea bags. The skin feels really tight, so the bags have gone down. And the dark circles are lighter. The circles are lighter than they were before the weight loss! Thanks sooo much for the tip.

 I will try that. I have been using the yellow-ish concealer. I am 27 yrs old, and my skin still breaks out, too. So, I have switched to mineral powder makeup, and my breakouts have almost stopped completely. (Except when its my time of the month. And even that isnt as bad with the new makeup.)Anyway, Maybe you can give me a suggestion: I am needing to find a moisturizer for sensitive skin. I will break out from almost ANYTHING. Did you happen to hear of a moisturizer that I can still use, without causing me to break out like a teenager? It is just ridiculous!
