I’ve been having one of those Mondays where everything’s been going…great!
Don’t you just love those?
They’re few and far between, let me tell ya, but I’ll take it. Some Mondays I don’t feel ready for the weekend to end or for the workweek to start, but I’ve been in in a pretty good groove so far today.
I don’t know, maybe it’s the heat… It’s almost 90 degrees Fahrenheit in Novato right now!
Seriously, I think it’s making me loopy because I’m smiling from ear to ear…
I was watching a mama bird feed one of her little ones in the oak tree by my window this morning as I applied under-eye concealer and randomly started singing, “The hills are aliiiiive, with the sound of musiiiiiic!”
The concealer was Bobbi Brown’s bad@ss Peach Corrector. My dark under-eye situation has been triple-rainbow intense lately. I’m officially in my (gulp) late thirties now, and the purplish, bluish dark circles under my eyes have become something of a mainstay of my looks, haha.
Shoot, last night I even got 10 hours of sleep — 10 GLORIOUS HOURS! — and I still woke up with dark circles.
Thank goodness for Bobbi’s $23 miracle working Peach Corrector…
A creamy, opaque color-correcting concealer designed to be layered beneath your go-to under-eye concealer, it’s great if you get those real deal, Uncle Fester-caliber dark circles like moi. I use Peach, one of 16 shades in the line.
SHAZAM! It’s like waving a magic wand over my face. When I add it to my mix, I think I definitely look refreshed and considerably less tired, and that whole under-eye sitch looks brighter.
Most of the time I just wear it on its own with powder dusted on top (versus underneath another concealer), and it neutralizes the purple action. Heck, when I use it I think I even look a little younger (says the girl turning 38 in a few weeks, le sigh!).
I use a flat eye shadow brush or my fingers to apply it, and then run a tapered blending brush lightly across the top and along the edges. Then I set that with plenty o’ powder.
That’s it. Keeps my circles hidden for 10-12 hours.
The long-running Unsung Heroes series features some of my favorite permanent collection products from a variety of bodacious beauty brands.
If you’re lighter or darker than I am, you might want something other than Peach. If so, here’s a handy color guide…
