How I get rid of those pesky under eye dark circles…


So you may know the feeling that when your alarm goes off in the morning, you think ‘oh my I’m tired.’ You solemnly declare you’re going to go to bed super early that night and curse yourself for staying up so late. I do a little scouts promise to myself that I’ll be in bed by ten. As soon as evening comes round, the promise falls flat on it’s arse and I wake up the next morning thinking the exact same thing. However you have to get through the day, looking like you’ve had twelve hours of sleep and not wanting anyone to know the fact you’ve been up late reading back through Union J’s tweets. Since I’ve started working full time, I’ve got very accustomed to hiding those pesky under eye bags. I used to boast ‘ I never get dark circles har har har.’ Yeah that was because I didn’t used to work 8 hours a day. Now I’ve realised I do get them and I need a lot of help to cover them up. Over the past few months, I’ve tried many things, but I now have a few products I rely on in the morning. They’re my eight hours sleep in a tube.

Beautysets - eye circles

Benefit Peek a Bright Eye Kit: First of all I apply this little pot of pink cream from the latest Benefit Peek a Bright eye kit (full review coming soon) it’s pale pink and super opaque so eradicates any dark circles.

YSL Touche Eclat: Next I apply both Touche Eclat and the Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer together as a little dream team combo! The Collection concealer is really full coverage so hides any bags left, then the highlighter from the Touche Eclat lightens up any darkness left.

It may seem a little extreme but these three products actually make me feel like an actual human, without them I look like like a zombie/been on hardcore drugs. Which is never a good look! So let me know what’s your favourite under eye circle hiders? Any gems I should add to my stash?

I hope you’re all well and have had a good weekend, I worked the whole of it.. brilliant. I’ve been super busy at work helping organising a fashion show so it’s been go, go go! Hope you’re all well! 🙂
