Best tips on how to conceal undereye dark circles

 

 

I remember even as a teen being asked if I have been getting enough sleep, and I would always answer: No, my dark circles are perfectly natural, even with plenty of sleep!

Dark circles can be caused by many factors, such as pure genetics, thin translucent skin that show the underlying veins, and sometimes may even be a sign of underlying health deficiencies such as anemia (recommended to be looked into medically).

Luckily, makeup can come to the rescue and help conceal undereye dark circles, allowing an illuminated, bright-looking undereye area granting the perfectly rested look.

What shade are my dark circles

Before we start with the steps of applying the correct concealing products, it is important to determine the undertone shade of the dark circles.

Usually, the dark circles will either have a purple undertone, a brownish undertone, or a grey undertone.

 

How to choose the right color corrector

For each undertone, you will need a different shade of a product called a color corrector. A corrector basically corrects the skin tone by creating contrast and evening out the skin tone.

For purple dark circles- you will need to apply an orange corrector.

How to choose a Concealer

The concealer is meant to conceal the dark circles, and is really similar to foundation, but is usually less drying to the skin and has more moisture since the eye area is more sensitive and is made of thinner dryer skin than the rest of the face.

How to choose a concealer color

The way to choose the right shade is by choosing a shade that is close to your foundation shade, or a shade lighter. Make sure it is never darker than your foundation.

How to choose a concealer for wrinkles and/or bags under the eyes

If you have fine lines, wrinkles and/or bags under the eyes area make sure:

  • You choose a highly moisturizing concealer so it won’t sink into the lines and enhance their appearance.
  • Choose a shade of the exact color of your foundation. This is critical because if you go lighter it will illuminate and bring attention to the wrinkles and bags that were hiding in the safe darkness of your circles.

How to apply concealer

Once you have chosen a concealer, take the product either with a concealer brush or with your finger. Dab the concealer over the corrector, starting on the inner part of the dark circle (closest to the bridge of your nose), and set it in using dabbing motions with the brush or a makeup sponge.

How to get the concealer to stay on all-day

In order to keep the product in place, I recommend setting it in by dabbing lightly translucent powder:

Bobbi Brown Sheer Finish Loose Powder

Laura Mercier Loose Setting Powder

Be careful not to overdo it in order to avoid a cakey look in the under-eye area. If you are careful and apply it delicately, the concealer will stay put throughout the day.

 Voila! Your dark circles are gone and now you have a healthy well-rested and illuminated look.
