Every woman strives to have a flawless appearance, but some skin imperfections can be incredibly difficult to deal with. Dark circles under the eyes can be a real problem because they make your face look tired and unhealthy.

Fortunately, there is a simple and effective way to mask this problem. Womans World has learned more about it.

As a rule, women try to cover up dark circles with concealer, but if you apply it too thickly, it starts to peel off and get caught in wrinkles, emphasizing them. However, this can be corrected by using a technique called 'baking'.

Hiding dark circles under the eyes: how to do 'baking' properly

Baking

Baking is a powder application technique used to set concealer under the eyes for a smooth, long-lasting finish that reduces fine lines and brightens dark circles.

In addition, this method will help you easily remove shadows from the lower eyelid that have fallen off during eye makeup.

However, experts warn that this technique is only suitable for those who use a lot of oily or very moisturizing concealer. If you prefer a matte concealer or apply little makeup, you should skip this step.

Step-by-step instructions

For baking, it is better to choose a light powder with a fine grind and a translucent finish. Also, if you have mature skin with wrinkles, you should apply a fairly thin layer of powder so that the excess does not get trapped in the skin creases.

  1. Apply a moisturizer to the under-eye area and let it absorb completely;
  2. Apply primer and concealer as usual and blend well;
  3. Apply a thick layer of powder with a slightly damp makeup sponge. But don't rub the powder into your makeup too hard so that the top layer can be easily brushed off;
  4. Wait 5-10 minutes for your body heat to "bake" the makeup under your eyes, i.e. permanently fix it. At this time, you can do your eye makeup;
  5. Remove excess powder with a fluffy brush or makeup sponge.
  6. The baking technique works best on the area under the eyes, but if necessary, you can use it on the nose, chin or forehead if they are prone to oily skin.
