Good day, darling ones.
PeaceBang has been testing products for you, and she has found a couple she is ready to recommend for undereye puffiness and dark circles.
Let’s take a look.
First of all, if you have puffiness, you can help yourself by reducing salt intake and getting rest. Dark circles are genetic and there’s not a product on the market that will really help you reduce the circles, which is why God gave us cosmetics.
First, I have found that this product, GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream by Origins ($30) has done a noticeable job reducing puffiness for me. Put a little dab on your ring finger and dab it from the outside in, don’t rub. Let it set before you apply any make-up.
In fact, letting skin products dry and set is VERY important in your morning and night skincare and make-up routine! Let serums absorb before applying moisturizer. Let moisturizer absorb before applying sunscreen. Let sunscreen sink in for a bit before starting make-up. Let foundation set for a minute before applying blush. Let night creams and eye creams absorb before putting your head on the pillow.
Get the picture? This all takes way less time than you think, and you can do other things while waiting for your foundation to set, like brush your hair.
Now, onto undereye concealer! LIGHTLY dab a few dots of product along your undereye, let it warm to your skin for a few moments, then gently press and blend with your ring finger or a moist sponge, blending into the inner corner of your eyelid and bridge of your nose. Pro tip: blend some of the concealer into the ruddy spots many of us have on the sides of our noses.
I am very happy with this product, a drugstore brand: Ready Set Gorgeous concealer by Cover Girl for about $7.00. Choose one shade lighter than your skin tone.
