I'm here today to talk about the problem I always face - dark circles. I'm sure they're hereditary because they never go away, even if I've had 10 hours sleep and they've always been there. I think I've found my favourite combination yet to combat these rings, so I'm going to share it with you! I hope you'll find this helpful if you suffer with under eye darkness as well!
The perfect couple pictured above include the Bobbi Brown Corrector and Mac Select Moisturecover concealer. Both of these are creasing masterminds, but with powder the last very well until I wish to remove them.
The shade I have in the Mac concealer is NW15, which is actually a little dark but it does the job perfectly and I'm starting to tan a bit now so I've grown to like it.
On the other hand, with the BB corrector I've got the shade Light Bisque, which the counter lady colour matched me to. She was chewing gum in my face whilst doing so but other than that, I was pleased that I plucked up the courage to ask haha!
Here are the swatches. As you can see, the Moisturecover is very dewy, and the corrector is very pink to counteract blue shades under the eyes, I think...? (oh yeah rhyming...!)
I'll show you some pictures of these two products under my eyes now. Before I do so...
WARNING! THE FOLLOWING PHOTOGRAPHS CONTAIN EYEBROWS WHICH ARE IN SERIOUS NEED OF A PLUCK.

I apply these using my ring finger as I find it warms the product and makes the texture a lot more workable. I use the Real Techniques Deluxe Crease Brush to powder, by pushing it into the skin gently, however the photos above are shown without as I didn't have it to hand.
I've always been a drugstore girl, and the only times I've splurged on higher end items are when it is my birthday. Other than that, I'm a Boots and Superdrug addict!
The corrector retails for £18.00, and the concealer is £15.00 however I got it for a total steal at £7.50 in a blog sale. (I've just been on the Mac website, they've put a lot of their prices up by 50p! Eyeshadows are now £12.50, skinfinishes £22... hmmm cheeky! Am I late to realise this?)
So, the combination is £33.00. Wow. I dread the day when I have to repurchase them...!
That's all for today, what do you think?
Let me know your opinions about the Mac prices below, I'd love to hear what you have to say!
Thank you so much for reading,
