How to Cover Dark Circles Using Concealer?

If you desire a perfect look, it is very important you choose a right concealer. If you wish a light coverage, a liquid tube concealer with the lightest formulation works best. Heavy coverage is best with pots, pans and stick concealers.  Make sure you do not go overboard because it will stick to your loose skin and will accentuate wrinkles. So Here are the tips to cover dark circles using concealer.

STEP 1:   CONCEAL

To counteract the blue/gray color under the eyes, you need to use a color opposite on the color wheel which would be orange.  If you have fair skin, you’ll want a light to medium peach color. For medium to dark skin, a dark peach or orange color.

STEP 2:  BLEND

If you don’t wear foundation, use a concealer the same color as your skin tone and a pat on top of the orange concealer you just applied.  This will blend the peach/orange concealer into the skin and make it appear more natural. Be careful around the eyes not to swipe off the orange concealer underneath.  The goal is just to blend the concealer into the foundation.

STEP 3:   SET

If you have dry skin, you can skip applying face powder and just use a matte eyeshadow 2 shades lighter than your skin.  Using the same soft dome brush, apply a thin layer under the eyes just to set the concealer and prevent it from creasing throughout the day.  If you need powder all over the face, use a flat thin sponge and apply a thin layer of powder in the T-Zone and under the eyes.
