You'll all know my hereditary dark circles are the thing that gets me down the most, and probably the thing I've spent the most money on trying to remedy, through creams or make up.
I have to say after being sent the Clarins Instant Concealer*to review I'm actually really impressed with the results you can achieve with this.
The concealer is a lovely creamy consistency, best applied from the back of your hand with a warm finger. For me the best results depend on the way it's applied, and in my case that means layering! Apply the concealer to the middle of the eye so you don't get too much directly under the eyes, for me this makes the blend out easier. Once I've applied the first layer I move onto the next eye, this allows the first layer to set and I leave it a good 2-3 minutes between layers, for me this avoids pulling off the first layer and allows it time to sink into the skin.
I apply my concealer after my foundation, and I finish my application by setting my concealer with my trusty Ben Nye Banana powder and a dry beauty blender. I'd always advise to skip powder if you have fine lines around your eyes as it can enhance the crepeyness of the delicate skin.
This is a must have in my opinion, staying power is all day and it gives a lovely cooling feeling on application, even popping it in the fridge can help reduce puffiness if this is something you suffer with.
This is in the shade 01 although there are 4 different colours to choose from so definitely head into your local Clarins counter to get perfectly matched.
