Make sure your concealer is a shade or two darker than your skin tone so it can hide those circles properly. Instead of covering up the entire under eye area, form a semicircle using your ring finger starting from the innermost corners of your eye down towards the cheek. This is typically where actual dark circles appear.
Once you have applied your concealer on the dark circles only, use your finger or a soft, damp sponge to gently blend the edges around your eyes. Next, smudge on a foundation that is the same colour as your skin tone to make your peachy concealer appear more natural. Make sure to blend the concealer into the foundation, but don’t cake it on. We love M.A.C Matchmaster Foundation for its high-coverage, plus it’s available in a variety of shades, so you can definitely find the right match for you.
If you feel like those circles of doom are still somewhat visible, dab on a concealer that is one shade lighter than your skin tone to cover it up and also brighten up the area. A concealer pen like YSL Touche Eclat is fantastic for brightening up the under-eye area while still looking natural
To set your concealer in place to last you for the rest of the day, and to stop it from creasing, apply a thin layer of compact powder using a dome shaped brush or a flat thin sponge. Want to know how to cover eye circles with the perfect powder? Well, we love the Maybelline Dream Matte Powder for applying on your whole face without looking too made up.
Since the under-eye area is oh-so-delicate and much finer compared to the rest of your skin, you need a concealer that is lightweight but provides maximum coverage while moisturising the sensitive area. These 5 concealers fit the bill perfectly.
