Beauty Mark It Results: Eye-Popping Brighteners

If you are a fan of What Not to Wear, you'll know that makeup artist Carmindy continually touts the importance of an eye brightener to conceal and lighten up the appearance of darkness around the eyes. Naturally, I've been a firm believer in her theory, but lately, the brand I've been using just doesn't seem to work as well as it used to for my skin.

Last week I asked you to help me in my quest for the perfect brightener — one that will conceal and lighten up darkness around the eyes. Well, a special thanks goes out to team member Marcella for her recommendation of Tarte Rest Assured Brightening Wand ($22). I'll let Marcella take it from here:

I use when I don't get enough sleep. I drop in some Rohto eye drops and line my bottom lid with this wonder product. All of a sudden, I don't look so old and tired anymore.

The cream under eye highlighter is great, too — if used minimally. A little bit goes a long way. Too much and you look like you're ready to go clubbing (which is not such a great day look for the office).

This product has quickly become a staple in my beauty routine and if you try it, you won't be disappointed!

Boing is awful. It has a hard consistency that makes it difficult to apply under the eye. Benefit's Erase Paste is far better but probably isn't for people with really bad dark circles. YSL Touche Eclat is great also!

I've heard some makeup artists say that this really ages you. I'm not worried about that but I have never tried it for that reason. I'll have to give it a try, I have a ton of higlighter that I could use for this.

I´ve actually tried the Booing one from Benefit, and although I love almost everything from this brand, it didn´t live up to my expectations...however the under-eye concealer I keep coming back to is from Mac, not the one with the wand, but the one that is in a tube. It does all it is supposed to do: it hides my rather dark under-eye circles, it goes on smoothly and it stays put throughout the day!

Will try it out. Currently, I swear by a combo of Laura Mercier Secret Camouflage and Benefit Eye Bright.

I got this about a month ago and I really like it. I use a concealer for my dark under eye circles but user the pencil side to highlight just under my bottom inner eye lid. I also use this side around my lip area to create a clean look with gloss. Bella has it right though, a little bit of the shimmer liquid goes a long way. I'm still playing around with that a bit. It works well to highlight the brow bone.

I'm a big fan of the Benefit eyebright and frosty combination. Also, if you have serious undereye circles, boing is an excellent concealer.
