I have extreme dark circles under my eyes. I have tried all the different coverups except for movie makeup. Does anyone have any ideas? I have tried the different colored coverups to no avail. This has been a problem since I was a teen and no one seems to have anything that works.

Hi, I have seen the same question posted alot and not really answered, which leads me to believe that with all these knowledgable ladies around there isnt an easy answer. I too have dark circles, the best I have found is bare minerals powder, I apply it first with my fingers and then with a brush, but they are not completely invisible. The only thing I have not tried, that I heard my help is vitamin K cream, if you do an online search you can find it pretty cheap. I have also heard vitamin c serums or creams help, the thought being that the dark circles are caused by the skin around the eyes being so thin that they are transparent, the C serum is supposed to plump the skin in that area, I have not found this to be true, but that's just me. Keep in mind that you are the only one examining your face closely so when you just take a look in the mirror you are sensitive to the fact that those circles are there, they may not be as bad as you think. Good luck, and let us know what you come up with!
