If you know me well, you know that I hate the hollows under my eyes. They are always dark and make me look so tired! Creams don’t help much, and fillers are the only thing that can really get rid of them (which I haven’t tried).

Fortunately for me and my zombie friends, you CAN cover up the darkness with makeup which disguises the hollows a bit. I’ve worked in Beauty PR for over 8 years so I’ve tested A LOT of products, a chunk of which I’ve gotten for free. A lot of them just don’t work and don’t deliver on what they promise. After testing a bunch, I wanted to share a few products that actually deliver, and cover up the darkness well.

Lancôme Effacernes Waterproof Protective Undereye Natural-Looking Concealer

When I first started using this, I wasn’t sold. It always patchy towards the end of the day, and I didn’t think it had that much coverage. Then, I tried using it with a beauty blender and my opinion completely changed. It covers up darkness really nicely and you can’t really tell that it’s on. A little goes a long way so it’s worth the money.

Benefit Benefit Boi-ing  Concealer

I was going to put Erase Paste on this list, but I guess they don’t make it anymore and are selling it as this now! I actually love Boi-ing because you can just put it on with your fingers and it immediately brightens up the area. I do like to blend it in when I have time, but this is my go-to for when.

Sometimes when I’m going out I’ll use a beauty blender and mix it with some highlighter which gives my face a glow-y look.



Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer

I first tried this one in college when it was a part of their maracuja oil line, and I always go back to it. It has really full coverage and seems to last forever. The applicator is convenient and I prefer it to the tube. But…everyone on the internet says that Tarte’s Shape Tape is the best, so I’ll eventually have to try that and compare the two.



I’m no makeup expert but these concealers actually make somewhat of a difference. I typically just go with the 2nd to lightest shade that the brand offers and it’s usually fine. Your best bet is to just go to Sephora and test them out yourself, but I’m lazy/hate stores so I usually order online.
