Try Trish McEvoy's eye brightener pencil. You can order it online from Nordstrom--runs about $12.00. It's a pink pencil--just put on your regular make-up, then use the pink pencil to "color" in the dark areas--pat with your finger---the pink reflects light and the dark circles disappear! It's a miracle! (I also use it in a very deep frown line I have--really makes it less evident!)

*Max Factor Erace & Pan Stik. Both products work well due to being highly pigmented.
*yellow concealer, any brand
*yellow powder: Bobbi Brown, Urban Decay, Revlon Even Out presses powder, etc. Bobbi Brown makes a yellow powder/concealer kit which I have never tried but which is kind of handy to have:

I've used Prescriptives Camoflage (sp?) Cream and I've liked it, but I feel like I need a change, I may try Trish's Pink Pencil above too!

I buy this concealer specifically for the eye area. I am very fair and circles are very noticeable on my skin. It's expensive ($22 for a pot) but works and I rebuy everytime I'm close to running out. Laura Mercier Secret Concealer.

Sephora: Laura Mercier Secret Concealer: Concealer/Shadow Base

The Prescriptives camouflage is what I used to use. That works as well, but I find the Laura Mercier to work better.

I've had no luck with yellow/pink correcting concealers or pencils.

I too, have that problem and its been a lifelong trademark. Though just about any concealer stick does the job, I also use a touch of pressed powder to 'set' it. Unfortunately, Ive tried every recommended 'theory' from cucumber packs, to cold packs, to Olay cremes, to that expensive Lo'real stuff, and most are just temporary, so I simply resorted back to the 3.00 coverstick.

There's a great article on More.com that gives step by step instructions for covering dark circles. It says the trick is to use a peach concealer instead of a beige/neutral color and then to cover that with a pink tone highlighter or concealer. It also gives recommendations on which makeup works best. I found it really helpful - Covering Bags and Undereye Circles (http://www.more.com/style/beauty/makeup/covering-bags-and-under-eye-circles/ - broken link)

Good info. I use Mary Kay's yellow concealer, but I think i'm going to try something different thanks to the post. The funny thing is, I never wore concealer before and now I can't go without it.
