Dark circles under the eyes are not just an aesthetic problem. It can be the result of anxiety, sleep disturbances, stress, or overwork. Dark circles can also appear due to hyperpigmentation, prolonged sun exposure, or smoking. Genetic factors shouldn't be dismissed either: for many people, this feature is natural.

Makeup artists say that it's quite easy to hide dark circles. It is only important to use high-quality products and master the correct application technique.

Step 1: Preparation

Use an ice pack or cool eye patches to wake up your skin. The coolness helps to constrict blood vessels, and the pressure can activate the body's natural response to drain the accumulated fluid in the area.

Step 2: Eye cream

Don't skip the pre-moisturizing step. Concealers and foundations can get caught in fine lines and wrinkles if applied to dry, unprepared skin.

Step 3: The right products

Foundation will not cope with dark circles. It is better to choose a high-quality concealer and remember the color theory to hide pigmentation or bruises under the eyes. Determine what is bothering you and then choose the right concealer.

Green will come in handy for neutralizing red spots on the skin. Purple, closer to lavender, is the opposite of yellow, so it is used to neutralize unwanted yellow skin tones. A peach concealer will give tired and grayed skin a healthier look, and pink concealer will mask moles or freckles. A yellow concealer minimizes dark circles under the eyes, bruises and veins.

Step 4: Foundation

Use foundation, blending it very thinly. To brighten the under-eye area, it is best to choose a reflective formula that is a shade lighter than your skin tone.

It is important to choose a concealer that suits your skin type. If you have fine lines and wrinkles, you need a dense, matte concealer. For relatively smooth skin, you can choose a more moisturizing liquid version.

Apply small dots of concealer to the inner third of the eye, as well as to the outer corner with a brush. Do not rub but press lightly on the product to absorb it into the skin. You can fix the result with a transparent powder or a special setting spray.
