Knowing how to cover up dark circles under eyes will help you get the very best from your concealer. The first step is to choose the right shade; you should go for a shade lighter than your foundation unless your under eye circles are extremely dark, in which case go two shades lighter.
If you have never used concealer before, ask friends for recommendations or test lots of different ones in a department store. It’s worth taking the time to find the right product for you, as you will be using it every day for the rest of your life when you see what a difference it makes to your appearance!
How To Apply Concealer Correctly On Dark Circles Under Eyes
The best way to learn how to cover up those under eye circles is to practice blending. Sit in front of a mirror beside a window, if possible, to take advantage of natural light. Wash your hands before beginning.
Apply several dots of the concealer underneath your eyes. Many come in stick form, which are very easy to apply but if your chosen product is in a pot or on a makeup palette, use a make-up brush to apply it in dots. Using the pad of your middle finger, gently tap it in to your skin; never rub it, as this can damage the delicate under eye skin. Build up sheer layers gradually to achieve a smooth, even look. Ideally, you don’t want to look like you are wearing concealer at all; aim for a natural but flawless finish.
As well as the under eye area, you will find your chosen product is great for disguising uneven spots on the chin, around the nose and around the mouth. To finish the look and set the concealer, use a large, fluffy makeup brush to dust loose powder over your face.
Of course, there are other methods you can use to get your skin looking great. Covering up and treating areas on your skin that are not up to your standards can be simple or complex, depending on the method you choose. Simple concealer is one of the simple options, and different types of photo facial machines is a more complex option.
You may find that once you have mastered the art of using concealer, you find yourself using less foundation, or even skipping it altogether. That’s all there is to knowing how to cover up dark circles under eyes. Try it for yourself and you’ll realize why many professional makeup artists swear by concealer as their must-have product when making up the faces of their celebrity clients.
