Any suggestions would eb gratefully recieved!

Touch eclat by YSL really light and hides dark circles well, don't use if you are having an evening wedding and loads of flash photography as its light reflective and can look weird in those types of photos.

this may sound odd- but potassium is supposed to help with undereye circles---im not sure if its true but im going to be eating bananas in the run-up to the wedding just in case!

just to let you know, i bought elizabeth arden eye cream... was told it helped with dark circles. it doesn't so save your money girls!

You need Laura Mercier Secret Concealer set with Secret Brightening Powder. In my opnion this is the best undereye concealer there is!

I find Estee Lauder's Idealist cream very good - perhaps just get a sample from a counter see what you think before you buy it but I love it!

In college we were taught to use lilac concealer. It was quite effective but I havent really seen it about since I left so I dont know where to buy it from.

I second this!! Boi-ing is a great concealer. I use it and my friend used it for her wedding to get rid of the dark circles. It's expensive, about £18 for a tub, but it lasts for ages and I've found it works really really well!

I use lilac on very, very dark circles on pale skin underneath LM and then orange underneath on darker skins. These colours neutralise the darkness if the concealers on their own don't work.
Didn't recommend it on here as it's a professional product that i use from Makeup Artist Provisions.

I was going to get the LM concealer and powder but I already have Benefits Boi-ing concealer, so perhaps I could use this!I haven't used it under my eyes yet as I wondered if it would be too heavy. Maybe I can save some pennies!

I normally use YSL touch eclat and really like it. Its fine with flash photography if you mix it with a little bit of foundation first x

I have really dark cirlcles & no cream i have bought hides them!

I use Bobbi Brown Concealer kit which is by far the best. Its not cheap, but well worth the money.

as well as concealing them you can treat them as such. i brought from avon some undereye cream and made sure i religiously rubbed in morning and night, it was great and my make up lady even commented on how my dark circles had reduced, she therefore used less concelaer to cover it.

I love this product....because very pleasant smell... i used for 2 weeks and dark circles are faded completely.wonderful.thanks to dermalmd under eye treatment.
