Tip: Dark circles don’t happen at the outer edge of your eyes, so don’t apply concealer there; it will just settle into smile lines.

Why Dark Circles Appear  

When it comes to dark circles, genes play a role but so do factors such as poor eating habits, lack of sleep, dehydration, ageing and sun exposure. Sleep on a good pillow that supports your head to aid drainage, include lots of antioxidants in your diet and drink sufficient water.

Step 1: Apply Eye Care Product

Apply an eye-care product specifically for puffiness or dark circles, with ingredients such as kojic acid, liquorice, retinol, vitamin C and vitamin K. (these help to increase skin’s thickness, drain the fine capillary network around eyes and even out pigmentation.) Leave for a minute.

Step 2: Apply Foundation

Although foundation offers less coverage than the average concealer, it might be all you need if your dark circles are moderate, so apply foundation before you conceal. if you need more coverage, pat rather than wipe it on.

Step 3: Apply Concealer

Concealer should be only a shade or two lighter than foundation and should have a warm (yellow, peach, apricot) rather than cool undertone. With a flat brush, apply under inner corners of eyes and along sides of the nose. to blend, pat and press with fingertip.

Step 4: Apply Light Powder

Powder lightly under eyes immediately after application so it doesn’t settle into lines. avoid blue, green or purple eye make-up – rather choose warm naturals, golds and peaches. Curl lashes and apply ample mascara, only on the top lid. draw attention to lips with bright lippy and a smile! Also, you could apply eyeliner to make your eyes pop.
