Is White Eyeshadow The Key to Concealing Dark Circles?

beforeandafter2_edited-1

My under eye bags are a constant source of frustration for me. No matter how much sleep I get, they seem to always be there making me look more tired than I actually am. So when I saw this blog post on concealing dark circles with white eyeshadow, I couldn’t wait to give it a try. The author of the article explains that she raided her mother’s makeup stash in search of something to hide her dark circles. She came across a white eyeshadow and discovered she prefers it to traditional concealers.

Here is a picture of me with no undereye makeup at all. I look thrilled, right? Ha.

I picked up an inexpensive white shadow at my local drugstore. Maybelline Expert Wear Chic Naturals Eyeshadow Singles in Vanilla is available at Walmart for $2.94

The creator of this trick uses her fingers to apply the shadow, but that’s not my style. I prefer a more precise application, so I used a small concealer brush.

After applying the shadow to my dark area and eye bag shadows, I looked a bit ghostly. I used my handy blending blush to soften the look.

Voila! A big improvement, I think.

Final verdict: This is a great makeup tip, and I’m glad to have it in my bag of tricks! Because I’m a little older, I do feel as though powdered shadow tends to make my fine lines look a bit more noticeable. Additionally, using pure white looked a little too bright on my medium skin tone. In the future, I plan to experiment with using a cream colored shadow and perhaps layering it under a creamy light-deflecting concealer.
