4 Easy Steps To Hide Dark Circles
All you party goers and insomniacs who love to hit the bed really late, and in turn compromise on their beauty sleep are frequently battling the dreaded dark circles. But hey, you’re not alone. Dark circles have got to be the universal struggle for girls. One of the main features that definitely need a fix is that dreary under-eye region. Making them disappear is not easy, with either skin care products or makeup. In spite of all the makeup tips you’ve scouted online, if you have complaints about a grey-toned under eye even after concealer application is because you’ve been doing it all wrong. Mastering under-eye correction and concealing for a beginner isn’t simple hence here I am with four easy steps for you to get rid of your dark circles like a pro.
Step 1: Skin-Prep
While prepping the face, people often neglect moisturising the under-eye region. Your under-eye region is extremely dry so don’t forget to moisturise generously. Use a moisturiser like The Body Shop Vitamin E Moisture Cream to hydrate that region before makeup application.
Step 2: Colour Correction
The reason for a grayish finish that you receive just after concealer application is because you haven’t colour corrected that region. In case of extremely intense dark circles, you should not just settle for a good coverage concealer. Pick up an orange corrector and apply the product on your under-eye area. The reason we use an orange base is to cancel out the darkness of the skin. I recommend using the 5 Camouflage Cream Palette by Makeup Forever.
Step 3: Concealer Application
After colour correcting the dark circles, use a concealer over the region to completely cover up the dark area. You don’t want to mix your concealer with the orange corrector. So the trick is to pat the product on it, instead of swiping it. Use a sponge for seamless application. I recommend using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in a shade that is half a shade lighter than your foundation colour to brighten up the under-eye region even more.
Step 4: Set It
Your work is still incomplete as you haven’t powdered your under-eye region yet. The product will crease and move unless you powder it to perfection so don’t miss out on this final step. Use a small fluffy brush dipped in a setting powder like Estee Lauder Lucidity Transparent Loose Powder to set your under-eyes and seal the makeup to last all day long.
