It can become harder to hide dark under-eye circles as we get older, especially when concealer sticks to loose skin and ends up highlighting wrinkles! Weve asked beauty guru Bobbi Brown for her expert advice on covering that under-eye darkness. Click through the gallery to see her top tips and recommended products for a fresh and youthful look.
'Start by applying a moisturiser designed for the eye area to keep your skin hydrated. Next, and before you apply any concealer, its important to properly prime the skin to achieve a flawless, even look.'
'Use a concealer that is one or two shades lighter than your foundation as it helps lighten the darkness that appears under the eye. To prevent your make-up from looking caked, use a creamy formula that will go on easily and appear smooth on the skin. Gently press (dont smear!) the formula into the skin it will help make wrinkles less visible.'
'For extreme darkness I recommend a two-step process: First use a corrector to brighten the area. Apply the formula up to the lashes and in the inner most corner of your eye. Then, apply a creamy, yellow-toned concealer on top to lighten the area.'
'Finally I would suggest using a sheer loose powder to set it all in place. This also means you get long-lasting coverage.'

'For the best coverage, I would use the Corrector and Concealer kit - it truly helps eliminate under-eye darkness. The creamy corrector helps erase the green and purples tones that appear under the eye and the concealer lightens the entire area for a refreshed look. The formulas creaminess assures quick and foolproof coverage. Its also lightweight so it doesnt feel or look heavy on the skin.'
