Concealing Dark Circles with Color Corrector/Concealer

concealingdarkcircles600

Dark circles are a very common problem, one that’s plagued me for sure. I can’t tell you how many different types of concealers I’ve tried. Finally, I have found a way to cover up the darkness and bring light to my entire face: orange corrector/concealer! Follow my quick steps that will brighten your under eyes and last all day long.

Steps:

1. Take an orange/peach corrector (for darker complexions) and mix it with your concealer. Apply with a concealer brush and tap with your ring finger, making sure not to swipe (as that motion will only remove the concealer instead of concealing the dark circles). Then apply your foundation to the rest of your face.

2. Set your under eye concealer with a yellow-colored setting powder (like Ben Nye Banana Powder or Bobbi Brown yellow powder)

That’s all there is to it!

Why use a colored corrector/concealer? It’s simple — we must neutralize the discoloration that is present. My skin is darker, so an orange corrector brightens and neutralizes my under eye dark circles.

Color corrector guide:

Light complexions can use lighter colors like light peach, lavender, and light greens (which are really good for redness).

Darker complexions can use orange and peachy correctors.

Color correctors to try out:

1. Makeup Forever 5 color camouflage 

2. Eve Pearl Salmon concealer

3. MAC Cosmetics Studio Concealer/Corrector  palettes
