When it comes to make up, I tend to choose products created by makeup artists. I guess it's because I think they understand more about what it's needed to have a perfect product, the perfect color, consistency and different formulas for different skin types. The eye area is a very delicate one and prone to dark circles and puffiness. I haven't had any dark circles up until very recently, only after having my baby and being sleep deprive did I start to develop them, which made me go on a search for the right products for under the eye area. And I have to say, I have tried it all, from supermarket shelf products to high end ones. And nothing beat these three magic products. Well, some people find that the Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier is a a bit too dry, but the secret is combining the two colors and applying it with a wet sponge for a very last and flawless coverage. You have to apply on top of the foundation and dust a bit of power for that result. For those stubborn dark circles, the best solution I found was the high coverage concealer. It's got a very thick consistency so a ted bit goes a long way and the best tool is also a wet sponge and finish off by dabbing with your fingers for a perfect finish. The result is rested looking eyes. Another product that I cannot live without is the eye primer. Same function as the skin primer but for the eye lid area. I ran out of my favourite one, the Urban Decay eye primer and decided to give this one a go and completely fell in love with it. It is very smooth and silky, it is long lasting and it helps the eye shadow stay put all day and get more intense. My beauty tip? Always try before you buy and make sure the colour and consistency is right for your skin type and good purchase!
