Beauty Snob Quick Fix: Dark Circles and Crow’s Feet

What’s more annoying? Dark circles under the eyes or crow’s feet wrinkles at the corners of the eyes? I say both but it’s a tricky balance to take care of at the same time. Women make the mistake of putting concealer on the entire under eye area, which is great for the circles but will only make the outer wrinkles/ lines more pronounced.

The solution? Use concealer only on the inner half under the eyes and use an illuminating product on the outer half under the eyes.

I swear by Bobbi Brown’s creamy concealer (it is the one product I need daily, even if I don’t use foundation!), it is moisturizing to boot so you can reapply often throughout the day. With 14 shades, you are sure find one that is perfect for you!

For the illuminating cream, I like Laura Mercier Tinted Moisturizer SPF 20 – Illuminating Natural Radiance.  Dab on the outer half of under eye and even on the temple, you’ll glow and no one will notice the crow’s feet :)

  1. What a great tip! I am going to try it right now, have both products. lol

  2. Hi Tina,

    How does the Bobbi Brown concealer compare to the Cle de peau concealer?

  3. great tip, I usually cover my entire undereye area with concealer, will try it your way.

    Hi Crystal,

    Bobbi’s concealer is creamier and provides a more uniform and heavier coverage which I like.

    Cle de peau is very light weight and is great for extreme hot weather or someone who does not require a lot of coverage!

    Both are really good (I have both!). Hope this helps.

  5. Thanks for the tip I will also have to try it. I have Bobbi’s concealer but I got Laura Mercier’s concealer recently in a kit and I really seem to like her’s better. Of course I will have both for ages since a little goes a long way and I don’t have dark circles.

  6. yeah, there are other ingredients that just don’t hide dark circles but remove them like certain peptides that scienceuticals makes.

  7. I like your article.

    There are lots of things I learned here.

    Not only from your article had I learned but also from the comments.

    Thank you guys for those helpful comments you post.
