I tend to have dark circles around my eyes..in fact I had a friend think I had eyeshadow on once but I didnt..I was wondering what would I use to make my circles less dark? Something from the drugstore would be great. Thank you for your help!

To start off you could try some of Maybelline concealers that come in tube form. They're nice for the price.

Green cancels out red, so it's usually used for acne, rosacea, just a ruddy complexion. Yellow is supposed to brighten. What most people recommend for under the eyes is "salmon" or basically peach. That cancels out purple. So you look for a concealer that has a more orangey tone than beige. Some women say when they use a beige concealer on their purple under eye area it turns it grey. Yuck!

The best known salmon concealer is Eve Pearl, but it's very expensive. NYX makes one it's orange, you can see it here at Cherry Culture, but could probably avoid the shipping fees if you have an Ulta or other place to buy NYX near you.

And on another thread internetchick said she picked up the Pixi concealer at Target and thought it was better than Bobbi Brown, I think it must be this one:

(Hopefully she will correct me if I got it wrong!)

What you want is a corrector. Something peach or pink. :) /emoticons/smile@2x.png 2x" width="20" height="20" />
