Realization about my dark circles!

It really pains me to type this, but concealer alone doesn't cut it when it comes to my under eye circles. I'm not sure when this happened but my bags have evolved to the point that I NEED a corrector under my concealer.

I do not wear a full face of makeup everyday but I will do a minimal look for school, work, etc. The other day I was camera whoring for a Minimal FOTD to post; as I looked at the pics on my camera it really hit circles are dark. Very dark. And stubborn.

I've come to the conclusion that corrector must become a part of my everyday makeup as opposed to concealer only. The below pics are of me wearing only Lancome Maquicomplet concealer with no corrector, Milani pressed powder, MAC Sweet as Cocoa blush, ELF Sun Kissed Powder to highlight. On my lips - Lancome liner in Raisenberry, Lancome Juicy Tube in Beach Plum.

And here I am with Eve Pearl's Dual Salmon Concealer and Treatment. I will post a FOTD for this look soon.


  1. OMG, this is how I feel about color correctors. I've actually strayed away from my concealer. How do you like the Eve Pearl corrector? I saw you use it in another look too. Between the two pics above I think the 1st one is more natural/everyday like. The 2nd picture looks more of everyday glam. I like both, but for everyday I think I would vote for #1. But you are your toughest critic. You'll have to give it the outdoor test too.

  2. I actually have not been using concealer since I purchased the Eve Pearl corrector and I LOVE it! A little definitely goes a long way - I think the first time I used it I applied too much and had the reverse raccoon eye going on...not cute.
    You are right, the 1st pic was very minimal makeup for school. The 2nd was more glam for a daytime event. I will post the products used for the 2nd look today.

  3. i truly understand! usu my cocnealer is good to go alone, but these last few sleepless nights.. ugh! gotta pull out the corrector!
