How To Tackle Dark Circles

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I was so taken by these pink roses while grocery shopping at the weekend… I mean, such a pink in this winter cold clime is truly heart warming. Equally I couldn’t resist the new vintage style Vaseline tin

But what I really want to talk about today is circles, of the dark under-your-eye variety. On the whole I don’t wear much make-up, just a very sheer translucent foundation and some concealer but there are some days when my eyes just look too dark, or bruised, as A Model Recommends describes in her dark circles video, which got me by the neck and racing to get hold of the products she talked about.

First up is the Benefit Erase Paste; its peachiness the key to taking away that bruised look and what to apply first before concealer. She then actually uses the Amazing Concealer as a stand-alone without anything because it is so effective, but I like to take no chances and decided these two together would be the answer to my woes. And yes, they bloody well work. Way better than Touche Eclat, which I learnt, as a highlighter is not the key to concealing bags (I am such a beauty ignoramus!). The Amazing Concealer is so amazing you only need the tiniest little spot – I still haven’t managed to squeeze out the right amount and end up smearing excess on my nose where I always have a little redness from a childhood scar.

Also in the pics are a sweet necklace from Anna Dim Jewels, a small French e-shop, perfect for layering over Christmassy fun jumpers (yep, those pics coming soon!) and the cosiest ever alpaca bed socks from Perilla because it’s cold out there hey, and nothing beats slipping on some bed socks to get cosy for a good night’s sleep.

Anyway, I’m off to take some photos in this lovely lady’s jewellery workshop in preparation for a fun Christmas giveaway, so stay tuuuuned!
