My under eye area is very similar. The dark purples/blacks really show through.. but I’ve always had that. It runs in my moms side of the family (yay)… I’ve never not been able to use concealer personally. Even if I have little to no make up on the rest of my face. Ever since I hit 30 I find my face is less forgiving with a lot of heavy foundation on. I think because now I have way more fine lines all over my face it just feels like all thick make up settles into the lines and looks terrible. The past year I’ve been loving bare minerals. I find it very buildable and I’m able to even out my complexion without worrying about caking foundation. Another brand I recently got into and I’m LOVING is Jones Road. Bobbi Browns new makeup line… her face pencils were designed for good coverage but they allow your skin to show through.. so all my freckles show still etc… I’m loving both of these options.
Thank you! This is super helpful!
i have similar issues, especially under the eyes. my sister once said "what's wrong with your eye, i think you have a bruise" when i wasnt wearing concealer 😬. it's tough being pale! i think the best solution is to find a concealer with good coverage that won't settle into the lines. for me, glossier's concealer works well; i also make sure to do some extra moisturizing on the under-eye area before applying makeup and it helps a lot!
filler could also be an option. i liked the look for me but it's too expensive to do regularly.
maybe try facial treatments like resurFX or microneedling to thicken the skin and give it back color! I have been loving my microneedling treatments and see so much improvement in the overall health of my skin. I will link a helpful article below
I have deep “bruises” under both eyes from translucent skin too, and no amount of concealer can disguise them, unfortunately. The absolute BEST product I’ve found that I will buy forever is the Milani Supercharged Brightening Undereye Tint in 110 Pink Rose. It looks really, really natural, and even though it doesn’t cover them completely, it reduces their appearance to the point that I don’t have to worry about anyone asking if I have black eyes. It also wears well under foundations (I alternate between the Purito BB cream and Ilia True Skin foundation), and when I really NEED full coverage (like if I’m in a wedding or something), I layer my Nars concealer over it and it comes pretty close to perfect. I’ll have to try layering it with the Milani concealer recommended by u/Dys_Warrior now!
I have this and use concealer when they bother me. I like the Milani Conceal and Perfect concealer.
I don’t understand the question.
From the very little info given, surely this is a make up solution, rather than skincare? Make up would cover up the the structures that are showing through your (perfectly normal) fair skin but there’s not much in the way of skin care that would ‘fix’ it because it’s not a problem, per se.
Thank you for your thoughts! Once I turned 30 my face seemed to start revolting against foundation so I've been hoping to wear less, especially because the amount of coverage needed under my eyes to mask the veins is significant. I don't often see pictures of folks with this kind of translucent skin under the eyes so I was curious if anybody with similar skin could share how they approach their skincare. But to your point, it's probably just going to be the trade off to have naked skin I'll have the veins showing.
