Cover your dark circles with these best concealers

Our readers from ages 25-30 have asked us via our message boards for some tips on how to conceal dark under eye circles. For example, one frustrated women is at a loss because she gets eight hours of sleep, eats right and has tried nearly every eye cream known to man, yet is not seeing results. So we asked a plastic surgeon, dermatologist, as well as skincare and makeup gurus to weigh in. Here are some expert tips and the best concealers for under eye circles:

If you're having trouble getting rid of dark circles, learn to properly apply under eye circles concealer. Makeup artist, Patty Bunch, says instead of globbing on a ton of concealer for under eye circles, combine a light, moisturizing concealer like Neutrogena Skin Soothing Undereye Corrector, $9.55 with your lotion so that it doesn't look so dry and caked on.

If your under eye circles are really exaggerated, treat them with something like Olay Definity Illuminating Eye Treatment, $29.99, then on top of that mix your moisturizer with the best concealer for under eye circles that you can find such as the balm TimeBalm Concealer, $17. Makeup maven, Fiona Stiles also suggests trying a concealer with a bit of shimmer under the eye to hide dark circles -- try YSL Touche Eclat, $40.

I've mentioned this in reviews and I'll mention it again--skin under eyes is extremely delicate. Use your ring finger, as it is your weakest, to work in this area. Never pull or tug. It's also best to work from the outside-in to prevent wrinkles.

YSL's "Touch Eclat" has a gentle light-deflecting sparkle for a wide-awake look. Another EXCELLENT concealer is Dior's "Diorskin Nude Skin Perfect Hydrating Concealer." It adds a bit of gleam and is ultra lightweight.

Be sure that your dark under eye is not from allergies! Children have, of course, beautiful,pore less skin. You will occasionally see children that have what we call dark "shiners" caused by allergies. The same can be true for adults with allergies! Go see your doctor if you have a shine to your dark under eye area!
