If there’s one area where everyone can find common ground, it’s a likely a widespread disdain for dark circles. These pesky under-eye shadows can put a damper on your mood—and they can be tricky to hide. The good news is, there are quite a few beauty tips that can make camouflaging dark circles a whole lot easier. Keep reading for our best makeup for dark circles hacks, then get ready to conceal, conceal, conceal.
When you have dark circles, your makeup routine should start with finding the right base. That means looking for a full coverage foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation, which can help hide any skin imperfections you may not want the world to see. For a seamless application, apply foundation with a makeup sponge, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, bouncing and blending it onto your skin.
As anyone with dark circles should know, concealer is a must. Of course, you’ve got to find the right one. Pick from the following options, then conceal to your heart’s content.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing and Contour Kit: Use this palette, packed with four pigmented shades, to easily conceal dark circles and define the look of your complexion. (To contour and highlight, choose hues that are 1-2 shades darker than your skin tone. Dab concealers from this palette onto your skin with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender.
L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Concealer: Available in shades for every skin tone and undertone, this super-blendable concealer is ideal for hiding blemishes and imperfections, like dark circles.
L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer: Let this concealer serve double duty. You can use it to hide dark circles and brighten the look of your complexion. Just use the applicator wand to lightly apply it to areas of your face.
In addition to concealer, your dark circle arsenal should include color corrector. You may be doing a double-take at the pastel shades, but hear us out. Think about the color wheel—you know, the one from elementary school art class. Shades opposite from each other on the color wheel cancel each other out. That’s why a peach color corrector can help mask the appearance of dark circles. Use the peach shade from the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit, dotting it on sparingly under your eyes to cover dark circles.
Your under-eye area may resemble some sort of semi-circle, but when applying concealer and color corrector (always color corrector first, then concealer overtop), you’ll want to utilize another shape. Apply your products beneath your eyes in an upside-down triangle shape to help completely disguise the appearance of dark circles. Try it the next time you’re getting ready!
One of the most useful makeup products you can have on hand when you have dark circles is liquid highlighter, since it can help brighten the appearance of your dark circles. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match™ Lumi Liquid Glow Illuminator, which comes in three shades: ice, golden, and rose. A little highlighter goes a long way, so use a tiny dot of it or consider mixing it into your foundation.
Of course, this wouldn’t be a guide to hiding dark circles if we didn’t mention your skin care routine. When you have dark circles, it’s a good idea to use an eye cream that’s formulated to diminish their appearance over time. Check out our article, L’Oréal’s Best Under-Eye Creams For Dark Circles, to find the right one for you. Then apply it morning and night in small dots after cleansing.
