If you have dark circles under eyes, you know just how frustrating they can be. Seriously—the rest of your complexion could look perfect, but if your under-eye area is dark, that could put a damper on your day. That’s no fun, now is it? Nope, we thought not! The good news is that you can conceal dark circles under eyes with makeup and help minimize their appearance with eye cream—so no one else has to know they’re there (shhh…that’ll be our little secret!). Below, find tips for hiding dark circles under eyes with concealer and foundation, as well as advice for putting together a skin care routine that’ll help reduce the look of dark circles under eyes.
It’s time to get familiar with the color correcting trend. Not sure exactly how it works? Let’s take a trip down memory lane. Remember the color wheel from your middle school art class? Well, if you don’t, here’s a mini refresher—a color correcting palette works the same way. Here’s the deal: Colors that are opposite each other on the wheel can cancel each other out. So, for example, that’s why you’d want to use a green-hued concealer to help neutralize the appearance of any redness on your complexion. When it comes to dark circles under eyes in particular, you’ll want to reach for a peach-toned concealer.
So, which color corrector should you use? We have a few options for you! The L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Color Correcting Kit is a cream palette that comes with four concealer shades: peach (to disguise dark circles under eyes), green (to neutralize redness), purple (to hide dullness), and yellow (to mask discolorations).
Regardless of which color corrector you choose, apply concealer in an upside-down triangle on your dark circles and blend. A little goes a long way, so use sparingly. Follow up by applying a flesh-toned concealer, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Concealer, with a makeup blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender. If you think you’ll need to touch up on the go, be sure to throw your color corrector crayon in your purse.
Next up: It’s time for foundation! Take your skin type and concerns into consideration when choosing a foundation. If you have dry skin, try a radiant-finish foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Glow Foundation. Meanwhile, if you have oily skin, reach for a matte-finish foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro-Matte Foundation. If you feel like you need more coverage, opt for a full coverage foundation, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Foundation. Apply foundation with a blender, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Foundation Blender, using quick dabbing and rolling motions.
Now that you know how to conceal dark circles with makeup, it’s time to give you some quick tips on how to diminish the appearance of dark circles in your skin care routine. The best thing you can do? Look for an eye cream that can help minimize the appearance of dark circles under eyes with continued use over time, like the L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream. Apply morning and night as the final step in your skin care routine.
Of course, this isn’t the only eye cream for dark circles we have to recommend. Read our article, Our Best Eye Creams for Dark Circles, for more options.
