i did this and showed pics on my blog. i think it worked better for my dark skinnned dad than it did for me which i'm much lighter than him (but no where near pale). i'm still hard pressed to get it right as i'm neurotic about my dark circles...


I read that red lipstick is supposed to do the same thing, with the same philosophy that the red will counter the blue tones of dark circles. Maybe a red shadow would work instead?


I have some orange mineral shadow with no shimmer. I'm going to mix a bit with my under eye cream and dot on concealer and see if it works. Thanks for the tip!


Hmm. I'll try it. I'll try anything to get rid of them. Thanks for the tip.


I hesitate to point this out... but it doesn't really look as though it worked for the girl in the video, does it?


Ha ha. She kept saying she didn't have dark circles so I assumed it was just shadows from bad lighting but maybe you're right:)


I just looked at the photos of your dad on your blog. That's amazing. Here's the link if anyone wants to check it out.
Good to know it works for someone at least.

I have never tried orange but have had some luck with yellow. I think Physicians formula has products that state yellow cancels dark circles and other blue stuff and green cancels red zits, scars yada yada. I've tried the green for red and it works pretty well.

I have genetic dark circles and the only thing that has ever helped mine is using Devita Under Eye Repair Serum at night and then a little NYC yellow concealer stick (not sure if that's what it's called, but it looks like lipstick, is a concealer, and it's yellow) under my foundation during the day. anyway, the serum gets rid of most of it, but since they're genetic they'll never go away 100%, hence the concealer.


Thanks Nicole! I'll give it a try.


yeah... I didn't really see Video Girl's dark circles go away...


it's more realistic to use a Salmon colored concealer b/c undereye circles really aren't blue. but the trick with the orange lipstick is to BLEND it thoroughly. the lady that walked around with orange lipstick on her eyes (lol) most likely didn't blend it correctly. mixing orange lipstick w/ your everyday concealer is the key to tone down the orange-y color to a salmon like color.


I tried this after seeing it on youtube and it totally worked for me, and I have pretty pale skin. I used lipstick not eyeshadow, and I've never had a problem with the concealer wearing off during the day (I use 16 hour concealer from Almay). Sorry to hear it doesn't seem to be working out for you, perhaps try some different products.


it worked for me, maybe because i;m naturally tan (Filipina from the Philippines!). I used an orangy mineral blush, and it lasted till I went home from work to wash my face. :) Maybe, lighter girls like you should go for lighter orange, or some peachy concealer...
