What is the best eye cream for dark circles?
Dark circles under the eyes are a common problem and can be caused by many reasons like fatigue from over or under sleeping, fatigue can cause bad circulation and puffiness around the eyes that casts an under eye shadow . Sluggish circulation around the eye area caused by both fatigue, illness and allergies can cause the blood capillaries to gather under the eye causing a shadow, also cark circles can be genetic, but a good eye cream healthy lifestyle and concealer can work wonder on dark circles.
My favorite eye cream is MAC fast Response Eye Cream. This was revolutionary to me as it contains ingredients that actively target and improve skin circulation thus successfully de-puffing and reducing dark circles in an instant.
Fast response eye cream is a super charged caffeinated cream that produces instant effects, the Skin around the eye instantly feels and appears tighter. And what’s even more fabulous about this product is that it contains special optical diffusers that changes the texture of the skin to look smoother. Almost like a blurring or smoothing tool on social media.
PRO TIP: The best way to apply this is directly from the fridge to give a lovely cooling sensation. Apply a pearl size amount to clean skin by gently tapping and blending the product around the eye area. Finish with an under eye concealer such as MAC studio fix 24 hour smooth wear concealer with a MAC #217 brush. This brush has soft blending fibres that give a flawless, smooth finish when used with a liquid concealer and is the perfect shape to get in around all the contours of the eye.
