Dark circles, bags under my eyes and blemishes are just a few of the things I (and most women) hate.

And I absolutely loathe the types of questions these imperfections spark, including "Are you getting enough sleep?" or "Are you feeling under the weather?" and my absolute least favorite, "Is everything okay with the boyfriend?"

A good concealer is not only necessary to help even out my complexion, but to help keep my cool.

Bobbi Brown is offering a better solution for tackling these beauty challenges with her new Correctors and Creamy Concealers. The reformulated products have a silkier texture and are blended with skin conditioning ingredients like lecithin, vitamins C and E, silica and kaolin.

"This new formula gives quick, perfect coverage," noted Brown. "It's rich and creamy without being thick – so it goes on easily and blends smoothly with minimal effort."

As a woman of color, finding a cover up that is the perfect match can be quite overwhelming. Luckily, Brown's new Correctors and Creamy Concealers come in a variety of hues -- boasting over 12 shades, from porcelain to chestnut.

When I recently stepped on campus at BU (Bobbi Brown University), makeup artist Laramie Ann guided me to a gorgeous glow. Following Brown's two-step approach to getting rid of dark circles, she brushed on the Corrector in Very Deep Bisque under my eyes and blended on Creamy Concealer in Almond to illuminate. Gel liner, mascara, blush and lip gloss added the finishing touches.

As you can tell from the before and after photos above, the transformation is "pretty powerful."
