My Defence Against Dark Under Eye Circles

Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift

What is your biggest beauty concern? Dark under eye circles are mine. And, over the years, I’ve tried countless camouflaging and concealing products (some better than others).

I’ve now come to the conclusion that it’s best not to worry too much about concealing dark under eye circles. Because sometimes the more cover-up you apply, the more noticeable they become. Flawless, photoshopped skin isn’t what I’m after, any more. But, that said, I still want to lift under eye shadows so that I look healthy, radiant and rested (FYI, my dark circles are genetic, and not effected by my sleeping habits).

And I have a new favourite product…

How to Cover Dark Under Eye Circles
Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift

A few months ago I was introduced to Trish McEvoy Instant Eye Lift, and I’ve been using it on a daily basis ever since. It’s a tinted, under eye brightening treatment, that disguises shadows and blurs fine lines.

It doesn’t cover my dark circles altogether, but has an instant, brightening effect, and makes me look healthier and more polished. Plus, the formula contains hyaluronic acid, peptides, and vitamin E – so it actually improves the quality of your skin over time, too.

Instant Eye Lift has quickly become my can’t-live-without-it beauty product. So if you also struggle to cover dark circles, I recommend you give it a go ASAP!
