Under Eye Goodness



The under eye area is not only incredibly delicate but it is also a good indicator of your over all health and well being. If it’s puffy and dark chances are your sleep pattern is a mess and your diet has been poor, if they’re flat and bright then things look good – you’re drinking enough, sleeping enough and eating well. However, as with most things in this day and age, there are cheats.

With makeup you can pretty much fake it til you make it and if a stressful job, newborn or other factors are hindering your eight hours or leaving you craving sugary snacks and you reach for a latte over a litre of water then listen up as these are for you.

I’m relatively lucky with my under eyes – I’ve been through periods where I have only had 3 hours maximum a night for over a week and yet my dark circles don’t become to prominent, I’ve also never had to deal with puffy under eyes; however, even though I’m lucky it doesn’t mean that I don’t still need a helping hand.


Every morning without fail I apply the This Works Light Time Open Eyes after I’ve cleansed my face. I dab this on using my ring finger under my eyes and then use the cool metal applicator to smooth it in – my under eyes look instantly fresher and hydrated.


For concealer you’ve heard me bang on about this enough times, but I’m going to mention it just one more time…nothing and I mean nothing compares to the Creme De La Mer Radiant Concealer. This bad boy can transform even the most exhausted of under eyes into new born baby levels of freshness (ok that may have been a touch of hyperbole). It brightens yet conceals at the same time with enough coverage to totally banish even the most persistent of dark circles (until the evening cleanse that is..).


The last step in amazing under eyes is powder. I’ve only recently started using a setting powder under my eyes but I’ve already fallen hook line and sinker for it! The Laura Mercier Secret Eye Brightening powder both sets concealer as well as adding a brightening effect and slightly highlighted as well as it has super finely milled sparkle in the mix. Apply with an eyeshadow or concealer brush under the eyes (I like to apply it right up until the cheekbones) for Kardashian levels of brightness without looking over done.

With these three steps done no one need know that it’s not your natural good health 😉

    Loved this blog post! Was really helpful and I’ve been dying to try that La Mer concealer for ages now! Would love to see a closet type tour video on your youtube channel as I am currently moving and need some inspiration and organization tips 🙂

    I’ve seen you apply that concealer so many times & have been tempted because it makes a huge difference but I’m wondering if it’s a thick consistency & if it would settle into or highlight fine lines? xx

    Love the This Works range; everything works so well and smells gorgeous. Would that concealer suit drier skin types?
