 OK, everyone here has been so helpful to me on all my questions so far now I need some suggestions on how to hide the dark circles under my eyes. So tired of trying to hide how I really feel with makeup.  Help

My dark circles ring my eyes completely. I use Bare Minerals and it hides 98% of it but takes careful application and a couple of their products. I have tried many other methods with no luck as mine are very dark. I have heard Vitamin K cream can help fade them over time.

Hi Linda,
    The dark circles are awful for me too. Everytime I look in the mirror or see a picture of myself I think about trying something, then change my mind. I was talking to my DIL about this yesterday. It bothers me but not enough to do anything about it, I guess.
    Some people use a concealer but, I just let mine shine. I have never used anything but Covergirl Make-up and only the foundation with a little mascara and sometimes a little blush. I don't have the energy and money to spend on expensive make-up and then going through all the steps to put it on right.... :-) .
   I hope you find something that works well for you. Please keep us updated and take care. You will be in my thoughts and prayers.

Bare Minerals Rock!!!
 
This makeup is totally worth the price.  I use well rested under my eyes and Bisque to cover any redness I have. I love how simple it is to use and how 'healthy' it is for my skin too. :)

Ulta sells Bare Minerals as does some JC Penny stores and QVC. I believe you can buy it at BareMinerals.com as well.

Thanks Kandi,

I'll check at Penny's because I don't like to order makeup without seeing it first.

sephora will show you how to use it. Depending on where you live you may have a bare escentuals store nearby.

Greetings, Linda! I do not know if you have one nearby, but I was in Target recently and they now carry the Bare Escentuals brand. I am not sure they sell the items separately, but they had nice "kits" available. I really like the brand but I had trouble with break outs from frequent use. (My skin has always been sensitive to new cleansers or make-up.) I wish you much luck, though, let us know how it works for you!

Audrey
Prayers,

Thank you Audrey Ann. we do have one near me and I will check it out. I wonder if this makeup is for women in their 60's because I have to have more coverage than a 30 or 40 year old.

Hi Linda,

I got a "generic" brand of mineral makeup from Sally's. I'm not sure if you have one by you . . . it is a beauty salon store. I think the knock-off's are good too. I use it on occasion to hide my red cheeks. So I haven't tried it on dark circles.

I hope you find something that helps.

Blessings!

Lately I have been using Arbonne cover up, and it seems to hid the dark circles and the rash better than anything so far.
Lots of Love!

Long term every day use Vit K rocks. Also Clinique under eye stuff has a caffeine base that perks up bags and purple. Green tea bags work, A&D ointment, and then concealer. I use Vit K almost daily and it has been wonderful. Then concealer when desperate followed by mineral powder.

Vit K is used for bruising and trauma and help to break up the bruises. Its also used for skin discoloration so it works well for the eye purple we get.

Hope this helps.

Hey,

I recently bought this concealer from Sephora called 'Amazing Concealer' by Amazing Cosmetics. It really is amazing, it hides the dark circles and all the rashes and discoid patches I get on my face. It's a little pricey at $45 a pop, but a tiny bit goes a long way, and worth EVERY penny. I'm one of those weird people that had a bad reaction to Bare Minerals, and luckily I found this product. I'm a real girlie girl and looooooooove make-up, so it was a relief to find something to cover all the rashes and circles.
