Errrrrbody knows you need a good under eye concealer to get by, amiright? That's what I thought. I know, weird post for the middle of the summer, right? But, you know, we can't all go makeup-less. I happen to be afflicted with hereditary dark circles, so no matter how much sleep I get (which is a lot, 'cause I got mad priorities in the sleep division), I still look a little bit like I got punched in the face all the time. This is not, I think we can agree, the ideal look. So while I strip down my makeup routine significantly once my summer tan makes its triumphant arrival, I still gotta be taking care of those black and blues (jk, I ain't no thug).
After years of strugs, last winter I finally found a method to the madness that worked for me. I had been using NARS concealer, but it wasn't quite getting the job done, especially in the winter months when I look like death warmed over from lack of sun exposure. My best friend, Stephanie, adores Bobbi Brown products, so I thought I would check out their options for under eye circle combating and boy, was I pleased.
I use the corrector in Light Bisque and the concealer in Warm Ivory since I am apparently far paler than I thought. I did have to pick up a concealer brush in order to apply the product, but since I dropped a cool fifty dollars on the makeup, I hit up my local CVS for the cheap version of the event. I prefer nice brushes, but the ones I have haven't failed me yet, and I won't want to murder someone if I accidentally lose them.
If you could pick a theme for my "Necessities" posts, it should probably be that it's about something I either want desperately or am suddenly lacking in my life. It is fitting, therefore, that I have just run out of these products and will need to sell a couple of pints of blood in order to replenish my supply (I realize that this would make my dark circles worse in the effort to make them better).
