A Solution for Dark Circles

As of late, I have not been sleeping too well.  I don't know if it's the change in weather or if it's my hubby's snoring, but sleep has just been eluding me!  As a result of this, I seem to have developed some dark circles under my eyes.  Covering my dark circles with foundation does not work because they still show through, and using my MAC Studio Finish concealer will not help much.  The problem is that the dark circles under my eyes are a bluish hue, and the yellow-based concealer and foundation will not counter this color.

A solution I have found is Lise Watier's Portfolio concealer.  As you can see below, it is comprised of five colors, but the one I use for under my eyes is the salmon color.  If you take a look at the color wheel (, you will find that the color opposite blue is orange.  This is why the salmon or orangish color will be the most effective at combating the blue color of your dark circles.

The other colors in Lise Watier's Portfolio are helpful in other ways: two different skin tones for regular concealing, a green tone for countering any redness on your skin, and a lavender tone for brightening up any areas you would like to highlight.  It is also soothing to your skin because it contains chamomile and vitamins E and C.  I would highly suggest that this concealer be included among your makeup staples because you might find it to be a handy multi-tasker. 

Lise Watier is a Canadian brand, but you can still order this item from for $29.00.  If you have dark circles, try Lise Watier's Portfolio.
