From my mom’s knack for falling asleep in movies within the first 5 minutes to my dad’s daredevil streak, I’ve inherited many traits from my parents. Most of which, I’m happy about — even if they mean I have to re-start the same movies over and over.
However, there’s one hereditary trait I’m not so chill with — my damned under-eye circles! From creams and powders to those weird rollerball things, I’ve tried almost everything to make that blueish tinge disappear. To no avail, mostly — looking at me, you’d still never guess that I go to bed at 10 pm most nights!
Thankfully, there are a handful of holy grail concealers that manage to cover those bad boys. They’re full-coverage without being cakey, creamy without being oily.
So, whether yours are hereditary too or you’ve just had a few late nights, here are 9 foolproof concealers that will actually banish those pesky under-eye bags.
