How I conceal my under eye dark circles - Routine & Favorite Products

Hello Everyone

Hope you all are happy and healthy 

If you are following me for last two years, you would know that I was hooked to Eve Pearl Salmon Concealer. Recently, my Eve Pearl got over and I was dying to get another concealer. I had heard great reviews of MAC Pro Longwear concealer ever since it was launched. So, I went ahead and got myself a sample first and ended up buying a full bottle. I love how nicely it covers and stays put throughout the day even during these hot and humid summers of Mumbai. I love it's sleek glass bottle with the pump. But, the pump always oozes out more product than required. So, I usually keep about a pump in a sampler jar. This one pump lasts me about 3-4 times on both eyes. So, you can imagine how little you need to cover up those nasty dark circles around your eyes. 

I had also heard a lot about Benefit Powderflage and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. I always wanted to try a brightening powder for my under eyes. I went ahead and bought Laura Mercier Secret Brightening powder #2. This product doesn't give any life changing results, but, I quite liked the end result with this product on top of my concealer. This powder us a bit yellowish with very very fine shimmer hither tither. 

So, MAC Pro Longwear Concealer in NC42 and Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder #2 are very much my staples. 

Here are some before and after pictures to show you the difference that these products together make!

Currently I am hooked to the same routine and liking is so much and I don't feel the need to really alter the routine. What are your favorite products for concealing under eye dark circles? Do let me know, I would love to know and try some new products.

Have a lovely week ahead.

Lots of Love
