Raccoon Eyes

I have always been very fair skinned with a fairly decent complexion.  Through the years I've used very little make-up often using only a light concealer (I use Cover Girl) to cover any irregularities in skin tone and the dark circles I would get under my eyes when my allergies were acting up. 
Unfortunately last year I was diagnosed with glaucoma having now to use daily drops in my eyes,  and those drops have turned the skin under my eyes and my eyelids very dark.  I look like a demented raccoon with red rimmed eyes.  So I went in a search for a concealer that would cover this level of darkness and would last awhile. The Cover Girl I had been using definitely wasn't up to the task.  After a bit of research  I found Revlon's Age Defying concealer and it's great!  Not too expensive, about $4.95 for a tube that lasts me a couple of months, and I use it every day, twice a day if we're going out in the evening.
So I give it a strong recommendation if you've got raccoon eyes and are looking for a good concealer.


  1. Hey! I thank you for this tip! I suffer from severe allergies and I have the darkest undereye circles, maybe this will help. Thanks!

  2. So far so good with my eyes but will keep this in mind.

  3. Would this hide scars too I wonder?
    I think racoon's have sweet faces.

  4. But raccoons are so cute!
    Makeup is so fun though :)
    I'm sure you look pretty...just hope
    that you feel well! My allergies never ever take a break.
