How to Treat Eye Problems at Home
If you’re anything like me, the pandemic has brought a slew of issues like sleepless nights, stress, and dark undereye circles. How to Fix Dark Circles: I notice that even when I manage to get in a full 8 hours of sleep, I still have these pesky dark shadows underneath my eyes. They drive me crazy! Dark circles can be caused by lack of sleep, genetics, or in my case, an iron deficiency (anemia). While I take vitamins to help with my iron deficiency, I also use skincare and makeup products to conceal my dark circles. My Must-Have Eye Products: 1. patchology - FlashPatch Illuminating Eye Gels These eye patches are made with caffeine, licorice root extract, and green, which help soothe, hydrate, and brighten the undereye area. I love using these eye gels at least once per week. All you have to do is stick them under the eyes and leave them on for five minutes. The only downside to these is that you can only use them once, then you have to throw them away. 2. CLINIQUE - Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer Camouflage + 24-Hour Wear After I use my Patchology gels, I go in with a touch of this high-coverage concealer by Clinique. This is a hydrating concealer, so it keeps the eye-area skin feeling comfortable and looking natural. The shades include an apricot-colored corrector to help tackle dark circles and discolorations. When they say it’s a 24-hour wear, they weren’t kidding. This stuff won’t budge. I usually use one of my waterproof makeup removers at the end of the day to take it off before bed. How to Avoid Dark Circles: First, it’s always best to try and understand the root cause. Try getting at least 8 hours of sleep per night and see if that helps. If not, you may want to check in with your doctor to see if you lack any vitamins.

It’s the battle against the concealers!
It’s the battle against the concealers. I have four contenders to share with you today. I rounded up my top concealers to share with you what I love and don’t love about them. Below are the top four concealers that I keep in my makeup arsenal. Next to each concealer, I’ll add in which color I personally use. My Skin Type: I have combination skin (dry cheeks & oily T-zone). My skin tone is light with yellow/neutral undertones. 1. Clinique Beyond Perfecting Super Concealer (Very Fair 06) This is a 24-hour concealer that I love to hide my undereye bags with. I love that it’s 100% fragrance-free, and it has more of a liquid consistency compared to other traditional doe-foot applicator concealers. 2. Maybelle Fit Me Concealer (20 Sand) Not only is this the cheapest option on the list - it’s my personal FAVORITE. I can’t say enough good things about this bad boy! It’s full-coverage, non-drying, a perfect shade match, and it’s under $6. I can use it under my eyes, around my nose, and to cover up any pesky pimples that may come up. 3. Too Faced Born This Way Concealer (Light Nude) This is a super full coverage concealer, but I feel like it’s a bit drying on my skin. I think this may be best for someone with more oily skin than I have. I notice I get a little dry under my eyes if I don’t use a heavy-duty moisturizer underneath when I apply this concealer. While it’s a nice formula, and I know this one is loved by SO many, I don’t really see the hype. 4. Tarte Shape Tape Concealer (Light Sand) This is another one of those concealers that people rave about - and this one I totally get! This stuff is wonderful. It glides over my skin and gives excellent coverage. I do wish I had maybe gone one shade darker, though. My current shade works well in winter, but it’s a bit too light for my tanned skin in the summer.
This concealer does cover every single blemish you might have, but it helps brighten up your face, give a slight cover, and make you look naturally beautiful!! Shade: Very fair 05 (This is not the correct shade for me, a bit too yellow) Claims: 24 hour lasting, blends well, perfects My thoughts: This concealer is great if you are not going for a full glam look. It does last very long, not quite 24 hours but very close! It does blend pretty well. As for perfecting, to get total perfecting you have to layer it on multiple times, but then it will leave you looking either cakey, oily, or not your skin tone. This isn’t a prefect concealer, but a great starter!
patchology is the star of today. 🌟 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I swear by eye gels/masks and have recently added both the Rejuvenating & Illuminating Eye Gels to my skincare collection. 😍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I love the texture of these eye gels and how amazing they feel after I pop them in the fridge for a bit. 🥶 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ I use the Illuminating gels when I need a little extra glow in the eye area. Vitamin C & green tea make a bomb combo in these gels. 💣 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Whenever my eyes are puffy or I haven’t slept well, I use the Rejuvenating gels. Packed with caffeine & hydrolyzed collagen, they leave me looking refreshed. 👍🏾 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Honestly, a pair of eye gels & my jade roller have saved me from looking raggedy more times than I count. 😂
Patchology Illuminating Eye Gels 💛Key Ingredients: Green tea (for dark circles), mulberry extract (antioxidant that brightens uneven skin tone), vitamin C (for treating UV damage). In addition to the long term benefits, this also has pearlescent minerals as an illuminating shortcut. .💛 Experience: These have the perfect amount of essence (it won’t leak all over your face) and a subtle, almost imperceptible fragrance. I use these in the morning after I’ve washed my face and while I’m brushing my teeth and getting dressed; By the time I’m ready to do my makeup routine, these gems have already done the work of prepping my face to “glow” about my day. 💛 VERDICT: You can get this box with 5 pairs for $10.50 at ulta which is not cheap enough to be a daily indulgence, but still delivers good value for those days you want to treat yourself. I would recommend these and would love to try more undereye masks in the future.
This Covers Everything
TCE = This covers EVERYTHING! It's an illuminating, color-correcting, skin-nourishing concealer that works to immediately reduce puffiness while providing completely flawless coverage. Powered by cucumber extract to de-puff, Dermal Defens to protect and repair, collagen pigments, and vitamin C to visibly brighten your skin. . . 💭 I've never been big on concealer because they all tend to crease or set into my fine lines. I decided to give this one a try because it has awesome reviews. The texture is light yet full coverage. It blends perfectly into the skin. A little goes a long way. It doesn't crack but does sit into my fine lines just a little. It gives your skin a airbrush look without looking cakey. Blend this with a beauty sponges and it looks amazing. The only issue are the shade ranges. I picked the color medium it's still is a little too light for my complexion. I'm hoping in the near future they expand on the shades. Overall, a very good concealer.
