i love erase paste, the creaminess, the consistency, everything, but it seems to wear off super quickly!! great coverage though.. while it lasts..

MAC Face and Body, layered on a bit thicker than the normal foundation routine. It gives a healthy-skin glow that helps diffuse the darkness without making it look like I’m WIDE awake cuz other concealers do that to me. I only wanna look natural and rested lol.

that’s the hardest thing for me to do because mine are very dark and a bit swollen but i’m pale…no concealer i ever had covered them entirely…plus i gotta do touch ups all the time cause for now i can’t afford a good full coverage one 🙁 i just put foundation, then stick concealer in 2 rows then powder

I also have very dark circles and occasional puffiness, which I hate, and I apply mac pro longwear foundation nc25 + bobbi brown corrector in light bisque, followed by bb pale yellow powder…and it works, for a few hours haha

more recently i have been layering thin layers of concealer (mac select cover up+ napoleon perdis one), smashbox undereye brighter underneath and loose powder on top!
my attempts for the kim kardashian bright under eye look. it helps if the top layer of concealer is a lighter shade. but you still need a normal/darker shade underneath to cover the darkness of dark circles.

i agree! the smashbox stuff is great on top! i used to use it underneath as a primer but it works way better over top! and i use the nc20 select to correct then the nc15 to conceal and brighten.. we are very similar =]

I use a concealer trio from Viva La Diva (Swedish brand). It has three colours: natural, yellow, orange-brown. I use the orange-brown one under my eyes at the moment.
It works just fine, but it creases quite easily, so I’m thinking of finding something else.

At the moment I’m using MAC Studio Sculpt or LORAC Double Feature. For the Studio Sculpt I use a taklon brush that came with a Laura Mercier kit and the LORAC Double Feature is a stick concealer with a rollerball to blend it in. I like that delivery system because the whole thing is in one convenient package. It also has a very nice warm highlighter, too!

I’ve tried MAC’s Select Moisturecover and Select Cover-up, but haven’t found anything perfect yet! I’ve also tried Laura Mercier’s famous undereye concealer but I wasn’t blown away.

I want to try Korres or Jose Maran next!

Skip Josie Maran’s – it does not cover anything at all – I got it with her Tinted spf moisturizer that I do like a lot but forget the concealer that came with it. Try Lara Geller’s Real Deal Concealer – it lasts forever. Also really good at the concealers by Tarte

Bobbi Brown’s creamy corrector and concealer. The texture of the corrector is very similar to eve pearl and works brilliantly.

MAC Pro Longwear in NW 15 or 20 (I have both), applied with a 224 brush and then set with loose powder (either TF Primed and Poreless, Benefit Powderflage or MAC P+P setting powder) I’d love to try some of the peach toned products you mentioned, Christine, but neither one is available near me.

I use my ring finger to pat on Amazing Cosmetics Amazing Concealer focusing on inner corner and blending outwards, then set it with Benefit Powderflage on a Paula Dorf Eye Blender blush.

Being darker skinned I first use Bobbi browns corrector in dark bisque, on top I’ll add mac pro long wear concealer! Inuse my fingers to put it on the warmth seems to help it , last I dust bare minerals all over my face..

I usually apply the YSL Top Secrets Flash Touch Wake-up Eyecare, which is a moisturizer/primer with a ball applicator, so that I can massage the area. Then I apply my concealer, which varies depending on how much I’ve studied the night before and then I set everything with powder or with a skintone-salmony eyeshadow. Now that I’ve started wearing glasses I feel like my undereye cirlces are getting worse and worse, but maybe it’s just an impression :/

I use Bobbi Brown’s concealer with setting powder. I bought the base but don’t use it as often. I do like the concealer.

I use a Bobbi Brown corrector first, then I layer MAC’s Prolong Wear concealer on top. I blend it out using a Sephora #57 Airbrush Concealer brush. Then I set it with a translucent powder.

I can’t wear heavy concealers because they aggravate my millia but I like to use the garnier roller ball, which I let sit under my eyes for a few minutes before rubbing it in, then giorgio armani master corrector over top in the areas with the most darkness then i set with bare minerals well rested! amazing lightweight coverage 🙂

I use MAC Pro Longwear in NW20. It’s the only one I’ve come across so far that doesn’t crease (well, not a lot). I’ve tried the Bobbi Brown, but it creases like crazy! Does anybody else have this problem? I have these fine lines under my eyes and they’re not from old age or anything, because I’m only 25 and have had them for as long as I can remember. Nearly every concealer creases under my eyes.

I pat the MAC Pro Longwear under my eyes (and next to my eyes and on my lids, because the whole area is darker than the rest of my face) using only my ring finger and set it with a tiny bit of powder.

I had that problem before. Now I use Smashbox’s Filter with Dermaxyl underneath my MAC Studiofinish Concealer, then set with Skinfood’s Salmon Under Eye Brightening Powder.

However, I think the Smashbox filter pen has been discontinued. You can still get it from their site under “Final Call” category for half the retail price, or try hitting eBay for even less. If you really can’t find it anymore, I believe Clarins makes a comparable product, only pricier.

Hope that helps! ^^

I have the same problem with the BB creamy concealer so I’ve switched to MUFE Full Cover. It doesn’t have the BEST coverage or texture but it doesn’t move and the colour matches better than my MAC Pro Longwear 🙂
