  • I'm self consious of the same problem. Mine are like bluish veins though. Not appealing in my eye :(.

    But, its caused by blood leaking out of the capillaries under the eye - which otherwise appears a blue or black like color, as bruises do. This is because its the same nature as a bruise. Bruises are formed in the same way because when a limb of yours collides with something, with a significant impact, it breaks the cappilaries - which are the smallest of blood vessels delivering blood to cell tissues within working muscles and organs.

    Anyway, when this blood leaks out from the cappilaries, the body has a certain 'mopping up process' which breaks down the blood cells to inhibit any pooling (dont be allarmed - this is done all around the body, its a natural uninhibitibal effect of blood circulation). Unfortunatley, when haemoglobin is broken down (which is what oxygen binds to within blood cells to be transported to your cell tissues of your muscles & organs for energy), it leaves a small quantity of components which are colored a blue/ black/ purple color - which ultimatley is what colors bruises.

    This is so much more visually noticable under the eyes because the under eye skin is so thin! And translucent.

    And you know people always claim its because of going to bed late, or not getting enough sleep even - that's because it emphasise's the color, or even, makes it more visible because when we don't get enough sleep, our circulation is inhibited to the outer cappilaries, and therefore we appear paler - but that leaking still occurs and the components are still left after the 'mopping up' process. So that's why they appear even more visible!

    Anyway, laser treatment and creams can apparently help inhibit the process of leaky cappilaries under the eyes.

    This is a website that will explain what I've just told you, as well as a cream you can use to inhibit these effects; link

    Hopefully you'll find something that works for you :)

    I would have tried the cream but they can't ship it abroad -__- it's based in America lol. Or maybe it's because the 'Free-trial' does'nt allow it. I can't remember why.

    Anyway - hope this was of help.

    • Oh. I've just realized your talking 'make up cover'. I obviously just assumed you wanted something to inhibit the effects :S. Sorry. lol.

  • First, try to use an undereye cream to help with the dark circules. Hemmeroid cream works well.

    Under your foundation, use a concealer that is more yellow, then on top of your foundation, dot with a concealer that is your color, and blend with powder.

  • Use a lighter concealer there or a highlighter :) A concealer that reflects light is optimal :D

  • I have that too. You probably have deep set eyes. They can actually be very beautiful and naturaly defined.

    Use a good base fr concealer. I recommend a yellow tinted one it counteracts the dark undertones.

    Then apply a good concealer. Make up forever has an amazing miracle worker one.

    Then put translucent powder in a very light dusting so the concealer lasts.

    Avoid using heavy bottom eyeliner, keep most of it on top and if you line the bottom just do it lightly between the lashes, not on your inner rim or tearline it will close you eyes a lot in this case.
