    I honestly didn’t know MAC made eye cream. I’ll have to grab one. Thank you!

    This is a great tutorial but thankfully I don’t have dark circles!

    I really wanna try MAC concealer but I don’t have a counter near me so I can’t try on the colors or ask a mua for help. Is the lightest one almost white? The shade I wear right now is the lightest shade that Chanel does but the swatches on the MAC website suck (apparently) so I’m really confused. :(

    interesting I have hideous circles too always
    I use chanels concealer (the one in the clicky pen – sorry all the type wore off on it)
    It works wonders ESP cause skin under my eyes is very dehydrated :(
    I used to use chanels concealer the one with the doe foot wand great coverage but very drying even with a ton of eyecream underneath LOL that also settled into my fine lines fresh has a scary good concealer duo I got once when I got a black eye in capoeira it was hard to put on but no one at work ever noticed I had a black eye!!

    How would you say the MAC concealer compares to Bo-ing? I’ve been using the latter for a while now but my circles have gotten bad lately, too, and I find it fades by the afternoon (though, I’m not good with remembering to apply finishing powder…)

    I once won a little MAC package and it had the eye cream. Made my skin so soft!

    Karen this is a seriously awesome post! Lately I have tried many different concealers and none seem to do the trick. Right now I am using Benefit’s BOING concealer but it settles into my fie lines within minutes, wah! I am definitely going to try these products!

    Awesome tips and tut! My dark circles also start to show, thanks to my night-owl sleep time. If MAC concealer does not do, I’m thinking of getting myself some theater makeup to cover them. Also, salmon concealer tends to cover dark circles quite well, you should give it a try.

    Great tips! I really like the eye cream and use the MSF Natural in Medium to as a finishing powder.

    Inner corner of the eye is my bad spot. the dark circles dont seem so dark under my eyes but on the inner corners, they tend to look bad….I do the same thing you said. After setting my cncealer if it still looks bad, I add some on the inner corner and it tends to look better then…

    I like the tutorial, Karen! I’m looking for a new foundation so I’m going to MAC soon to try the MSF powder =) I like sheer to medium coverage and I usually use mineral make up–any suggestions?

    Hope you’re having a beautiful day!

    MAC Studio Finish concealer is an HG product for me – for my eyes I mix it with DiorSkin Sculpt concealer to sheer it out, but for zits it’s a must have! Nothing covers red angry zits like this product.

    One more thing – to help with creasing I take the edge of a latex sponge (I use the disc sponges) and buff the concealer out of the lines right after I’ve powdered the area.

    No ones dark circles are worst than mine. People tell me I’m beautiful all day long. But when I come home and wash my makeup off I don’t even want to look in the mirror. I constantly rub my eye area at night. I can’t help it. I have been rubbing since I was a kid. I was bullied in school and called names. I’m about to get married in June and I want the pictures to be flawless. Sometimes flash photography makes me appear ashy around the eyes and ruins my pictures. I have been so stressed about this happening when people snap photos of me at the wedding and post on facebook. I almost want to just go to the courthouse instead of my dream wedding. Please help. Trust me you look beautiful without makeup.

    This is great! Thanks! I’ve started using Studio Fix under my eyes because MoisturCover wasn’t doing it, but it’s been caking—especially by the end of the day. I may need to pick up a tube of this. Have you tried mixing Studio Fix with any other kinds of eye cream?

    Also, do you find that Studio Fix mixed with Fast Response is still fuller coverage than Select Cover Up?

    Thanks!
