For many, dark circles under the eyes are the bane of our existence. There is no way to eliminate them completely as they are mostly genetic. However, we don’t have to live our lives plagued by their existence. I feel fortunate that I don’t have to deal with them on a daily basis and with proper skin care, sleep, and my trusty concealer no one will ever have to know. With that being said, I will share a few tricks to banish their unsightly appearance.

I can’t say it enough, but moisturizing is crucial. The area under the eyes is very sensitive tissue and the first signs of aging usually show here. Using a great face cream and an eye cream can really help a girl out.

If all else fails, invest in proper concealer. Because the pigment of the dark circles are usually blues and greys, you need to fist apply a concealer on the opposite sign of color spectrum. Think of pinks, oranges and even peach hues depending on your natural skin tone. Gently blend these shades under your eyes. Next, you need to counter this shade and highlight the area. Over the first layer choose a yellow tint concealer and blend it over the top. You can use a concealer brush or a clean finger so it won’t crease. Now you should notice a brighter under eye sans any sign of tired dark circles!
