    Take THAT Dark Under-Eye Circles!

    I myself have really dark bags under my eyes and no matter how much you sleep I get, there isn’t all that much I can do about nasty dark circles and bags. I’ve found the best products out there that suit all different sorts of needs. Read on to find out which one is best for you.

    Before looking for the quick makeup fix, you need to use the right skin care products if you have puffy, tired eyes. Lancôme is launching Rénergie Eye Multiple Action ($90) this May. This dynamic duo consists of a cream and concealer and it’s a total life-saver. I am absolutely in love with it. The cream works instantly and the thick, rich formula cools the skin immediately. Plus, I can actually see the difference as soon as I apply it. The concealer part is light and ideal for illuminating the eye area. It really does a fabulous job of erasing my dark circles.

    Now, of course, no one product is good for every single woman. There are lots of options out there and it’s about finding the one that is right for you. If puffiness isn’t an issue for you, you might be more interested in an illuminator. Lancôme’s Teint Miracle ($38), launching in April, conceals darkened areas and illuminates the skin so your eyes look instantly revived.

    It’s very similar to Touche Éclat from YSL ($50 at Holt Renfrew and select Murale stores). This is also a fab product and I would really recommend it for someone who feels like their eye area makes them look tired and drained rather than just being dark. That calls for some heavy duty action and this product will give your eyes an extra kick so you look bright-eyed and rested.

    If you don’t have a tremendous problem with the eye are but still want your face to look brighter and more vibrant, Avon’s wallet-friendly Magix Illuminator ($14.99 – launching next month) is right up your alley. It conceals light bags and gives a natural, refreshed look. It’s ideal for women who want to look rested and vibrant but don’t necessarily want to look like they have too much makeup on. And who could argue with that price?It’s also available in 3 shades and lasts up to 10 hours.

    What are your current dark circle fixes?
