Covering up Dark Circle Tips
What You'll Need:
To conceal dark circles, use a corrector. Peach, pink or orange in color, this kind of corrector will counteract with the purple or green tones underneath the eyes that a concealer can't cover on its own. If your skin is pale, choose the lightest colors, starting with light pink. For deeper skin tones, choose a orange or dark peach. The formula should be creamy so it glides over your skin and won't settle into fine lines. Pat creamy corrector only on dark areas. Don't forget the innermost corners, where many of us have deep shadows.
How To Do It:
Apply a light eye cream underneath the eye area. It should absorb quickly and leave your skin feeling smooth. If you're using a corrector, use a fluffy concealer brush or your fingertip to apply it at the inner corner of the eye. Continue placing the corrector underneath the eye, staying close to the lashes and patting the corrector wherever your see darkness. Gently blend the corrector by pressing it with your fingers. You're now ready to apply your concealer. Use a fluffy concealer brush or your index finger to apply the concealer in thin layers. Be sure to blend well. Apply the concealer all the way up to your lash line and - this part is critical - onto the dark areas by the inner corners of your eyes. Blend the concealer it into the skin, using your fingers or a fluffy concealer brush in a soft, patting motion. Use a translucent power to set your concealer. Dip a small fluffy brush into a translucent powder and pat it under your eyes to set the concealer. Dust off any excess powder.
