Always in my bag: Anti-dark-circle saviour

{Anti-dark circle roller: eye care and concealer}

I first tried this product a couple of years ago when I had the pleasure of interning at FASHION magazine here in Toronto. At first I wasn’t so sure about it but it soon became the product I carry in my bag, everywhere I go. This 2-in-1 product is a face saver after a rough night with not much sleep.

As a contact lens wearer, I’m constantly waking up with puffy eyes. The cooling roller ball and caffeine combo help bring the swelling down fairly quickly.

The other big component is that it covers mild, dark circles like a charm. The light concealer bring enough coverage to make your eyes look radiant and like you’ve had a good 8 hours of sleep. For more intense dark circles I would recommend using a concealer as well as the roller that isn’t tinted. A fantastic product for this is the award-winning Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Duo.

When applying the product I roll the ball in a ‘C’ shape on the bone of my eye and then gently blend the cream outwards to highlight the top of my cheekbone too.

In terms of the shade to buy, I have olive skin and found that ‘medium’ was too dark so I went for ‘light’. For under-eye circles it’s always best to go a shade or two lighter than your skin tone to give a bright impression.

The eye-roller is available at drug stores like Shoppers Drug Mart or Boots.

    You should try Neutrogena Mineral Sheers Loose Powder, It’s brhtaeable but at the same time it gives your skin a nice finish. Also You Should Try Clinique Acne Solutions Liqid Makeup; But That may not work if you don’t have acne, GOOD LUCK Anyway!

    My mum uses this, and I always use it when she doesn’t look. I must say this is really good. x
