Makeup Basics Series - Dark Under Eye Circles, Be Gone!


Dark circles, be gone!

Dark under eye circles will forever be the bane of my existence! I only have myself to blame, from lack of sleep to a terrible two-Pepsis-a-day diet – it’s not wonder my under eye circles can compete with any of Hollywood’s nasty villains when it comes to possessing darkness haha. That being said, I’ve learned to live with them and they don’t usually bother me on a day to day basis, but if there’s a special event, I’m all for layering on makeup to conceal them dark circles! Here’s how I do it J




Always keep your under eyes moisturized! 

Now this isn’t something that will show results within minutes, but somewhere down the line – you'll be thankful you invested some money into buying a decent eye cream! It makes a world of difference in the long term.


   Correct your dark circles!

Correction comes before the actual concealing! There is an are in ‘correction’ what you basically do is use the color wheel that you probably drew somewhere in 2nd Grade to determine what color you will require to cancel out the undertones of your dark circles. Orange correctors are gaining a lot of popularity with those who suffer from super dark circles since they cancel out the blue/blackness underneath the eyes!


    Now time to conceal!

Now that you’re done with correction and have weird orange-ness around your eyes, use a nice heavy-duty concealer to conceal it all! For me, yellow-toned concealers have always worked the best. 


    Set it all! 

Unless you want all the hard work to go to waste, set it all! Use a loose powder, pressed or something with coverage – its all up to you as long as you do it!
