Ole Henriksen's Banana Bright Eye Cream

Before applying your Shape Tape Concealer, I suggest dabbing a little of this eye cream all around your eyes. Here is what it does:

                          A brightening, vitamin C-rich eye crème that targets signs of aging, reducing the look of dark circles while improving concealer application and wear—inspired by makeup artist secret, banana powder. 

Solutions for: 
- Fine lines and wrinkles 
- Dark circles 
- Dryness 

If you want to know more…
Wake up before you makeup. Banana Bright Eye Crème brightens, instantly targets fine lines and wrinkles, and reduces the look of dark circles, delivering age-defying results. Collagen-boosted, it firms and deeply hydrates even as it feels deliciously lightweight. It is formulated with powerful vitamin C to help revive and illuminate the entire eye area over time.

Inspired by the makeup artist must-have—"banana powder"—this subtly sunny cream contains special pigments to instantly brighten and color-correct the eye area. But that’s not all: it creates a smooth, well-rested canvas and improves concealer wear. Dark circles—diminished. Crow’s-feet—conquered. Now, go conquer the day with your refreshed and revived Ole Glow®!

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates 

What else you need to know:
In addition to making this cream both feather-light and nutrient-packed, Ole drew inspiration from a makeup artist secret he observed during his years of on-camera work: banana powder. Its pale yellow tint is designed to instantly brighten and color-correct, making it the perfect prep step for concealer. It features the same sweet, energizing citrus scent as bestselling Truth Serum.
 I got 0.5 OZ. at Sephora for  $38.

My New Favorite Concealer

Tarte's Shape Tape Contour Concealer, $27, comes in 30 colors. 

Being part Italian, I've tried every concealer known to man, to cover my dark bluish purple circles. When I had my makeup done by Mandy O'Hanlon for my new pictures, she used this and well, it changed my life! It not only covers but it turns matte so that you don't have to use powder to cut down on shine. The biggest surprise is that it doesn't crease- no getting into the fine lines! You can also use it to hi-light and contour! It comes in 30 colors so, there's a color for everyone. You can get it at Ulta or at the Tarte website. Sephora carries the Tarte line, however not the Shape Tape.
