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.


Saturday in the Swamp

Beautiful cold day here, down to 36º last night and only expected to reach 60º today, but the sky is blue and it looks wintery. Lots to get...
