Why Don’t Celebs Ever Have Dark Under Eye Circles?

So I was reading this article on Glamour today, and it raised a fantastic question:  why don’t celebrities ever have dark circles under their eyes?

Valid question!  So today I’m going to help convey what they wrote in their article and put my own thoughts on pad and paper – errr – on website. 🙂

So Hillary Duff uses a concealer.  This means she actually has dark circles, yet basically paints over them. Check.

I went over the US News to see what they had on this topic, and I found this amazing video.  Over four million views at the time I wrote this, so I figured it was worth posting.

Definitely give that a watch if this topic is of interest to you.  I’ve watched it a few times and no wonder it gets so many views!

Always looking for fresh takes, I went over to Cosmo and read this article.  If you don’t care to read it, here are my main takeaways.

  1.  Apply SPF under your eyes on a daily basis.  (Pretty much everyone knows this, but nobody actually follows through with it.)
  2. Use an eye cream.  (Duh.  Already using this skin product.)
  3.  Apply a concealer over a corrector.  Sounds like a ton of work.
  4. Use a pink cream blush.  No thanks, I’m already wearing enough makeup!

Those were my main takeaways from the article.  Personally I like to use the best eye serum for dark circles.  If you click that link you’ll see which one I’m talking about.  There is also a great entry about how to get rid of dark under eye circles for real.  Worth a read.

If there is any topic of discussion out there, we all know that Oprah will have an opinion, and probably a series of shows, dedicated to the material.  So I wasn’t shocked when I ran into her site looking for the best tips on getting rid of darkness under the eyes.  Here’s here article, and below are my notes.

  1.  Use an illuminating concealer pen.  ($8.)  Do this beneath any eye bags, and not directly on top of them.  This is KEY.
  2.   For pigmentation, use sunblock.  Okay, we already learned that and it’s a pretty basic fact, but that’s really what we get with Oprah and other talk shows like the Today Show.  It’s always the same information and never anything earth shattering, in my humble opinion.
  3. Use a night cream.  Something with retinoid.  I do this, so I can say that it does work.  Very good tactic, and the night cream doesn’t get enough respect in life overall.

I use a night cream because my skin is uninterrupted at night.  No sun, no environmental issues running interference, nothing of that nature.  My skin gets to rest, recover, and rejuvenate.  That’s why a heavy night cream is always best use at – NIGHT.  You won’t sweat it off.

Sorry to go off on a tangent there, but skin care is a very passionate topic for me and I know a lot about it.  In another life I think I’ll be performing plastic surgery.  Heck, it beats being a professional model!
