They say there are many contributing factors as to why someone has dark circles. Unfortunately, as I mature within age, dark circles is becoming a thing for me.
I would love to find a quick easy fix to get rid of them. But for now, learning different techniques for concealing my dark circles would be a great start.
I would love the opportunity to connect with you.
Hi Selene, thank you for your question and congratulations on winning the free makeover! Yes dark circles can be a problem area for many women. Often times dark circles occur because of genetics, dehydration, and lack of sleep are some of the most common reasons. The best way to combat dark circles are to first hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Make sure you are drinking water and moisturizing the under eye area. When diminishing the discoloration in the under eye area with makeup, I always recommend using a color corrector. Bobbi Brown is my go to product for corrector. The under eye corrector comes in different shades of bisque and peach. Bisque is to correct blue, red, or purple discoloration. And peach, corrects brown and green discoloration. Sometimes a concealer will need to be used over top of the corrector to bring the under eye area, to brighten and bring back the natural color of the skin. Last, setting powder is good to use under the eye to help prevent creasing and give a more flawless look.
I hope this answer helps–and I look forward to meeting you soon!
Hello Veronica, I’m excited that I won the free makeover! I’ve only had MAYBE 5 makeovers in my adult life 🤷🏽♀️. I’m not sure my issue with dark circles is genetics related, but dehydration and issues with my sinuses are definitely a thing for me. Lack of sleep has NEVER been an issue for me. 😂. I DO need to hydrate, hydrate, hydrate more. I’m trying to increase my water intake daily. I do however moisturize the under eye area daily, in the morning and again at night before I go to bed. I’m looking forward to schedule my makeover with you soon. Thank you for this valuable & gift and feedback.
Greetings! I’ 54 and have dry skin. I want a more supple look, so what is the best way to create a natural makeup look that is fresh for every day?
Hello Lisa! Thank you for your question. The best way to create a more supple look to the skin is first, using a good moisturizer and serum. I would recommend finding skin care products with collagen peptides to help promote more plumpness and hydration in the skin. Also, if you are using a foundation, you want to make sure that it is a moisturizing foundation. To give the skin a natural glow I would recommend a highlighter. And to top it off, I recommend using a hydrating setting spray. You can use a hydrating setting spray throughout the day as needed.
The moisturizer and serum for dry skin that I absolutely love is Bobbi Brown Extra Repair moisturizer and serum. Bobbi Brown and Milani have great highlighters. For hydrating setting spray, I really love Coconut Photofinish by Wet n Wild. Always feel free to reach out to me any time if you have any further questions.

I need some moisturizer, I think I will look for some of that peptide.
Lisa, you will be receiving a prize for your question.
What’s the best way to identify a foundation shade that closely matches your facial skin tone but isn’t drastically different from your neck?
Hi Renee! Great question. Often times we have different tones in our skin which can make it complicated to match the skin. What I would recommend is to swatch the skin on the side of your cheek, making a long stripe from nose to jawline. You should choose whichever foundation goes into the skin and disappears. If you can’t see it, then that is your match! To help making the connection from the face to the neck, I recommend using a bronzing powder. When using the bronzing powder, you want to place in areas of the face where the sun naturally hits the face and down to the decollete. So in other words, if you touch your finger to the top of your forehead near the hairline and imaginary draw a 3 on the face, that will help you to identify where to place the bronzing powder. And then lightly apply the bronzing powder to the neck and decollete. If you have any further questions, always feel free to reach out. You can follow me on Instagram @vb_beautifulmakeup
Congratulations Renee, You too will be receiving a prize for your question.
I ordered some bronzer. I am eager to try it.
