Keep reading to find out more about our best eye creams for dark circles, plus how get tips for concealing dark circles under eyes with makeup.

Here are our best eye creams for dark circles—go ahead and pick the one that suits you best! Bonus: Some of our best eye creams for dark circles can also help minimize the look of under-eye bags and crow’s feet, too.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Anti-Wrinkle + Firming Eye Cream: Formulated with Pro-Retinol, this eye cream can help firm the feel of skin around the eyes and diminish the appearance of dark circles with continued use over time.
How to apply it: Use morning and night alone, under makeup, or layer as needed.
L’Oréal Paris RevitaLift Miracle Blur Eye: If you’re looking for a miracle (pun intended), then turn your attention to this eye cream. This eye smoother is formulated with Opti-Blur™ Technology and light-diffusing pigments. It helps to reduce the signs of fatigue and aging around your eyes, including dark circles, with continued use over time.
How to apply it: Dot on a small amount to your eye area with your fingertips, and gently blend in. Apply it daily on bare skin, or you can use it as the last step in your skin care routine.

L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Hydra-Nutrition Eye Balm: This firming and moisturizing eye cream for mature, very dry skin is formulated with 10 precious oils and calcium. It helps the delicate skin around the eyes look smoother and de-puffed and diminishes the look of dark circles with continued use over time.

In addition to adding a new eye cream to your skin care routine, there are some makeup tips and tricks that can help you mask your dark circles, too. Basically, be thankful for face makeup.
Step 1: Color correct. When your under-eye circles are really dark, you may want to consider color correcting. This technique involves applying your knowledge of color theory (think back to art class) to your makeup. Since dark circles typically have blue hue, a peach or orange concealer will be your best friend for hiding them. Try the L’Oréal Paris True Match Color Correcting Crayon in Peach, Bisque, or Orange, being sure to follow with a concealer that matches your skin tone. Blend everything in with the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Blend Artist Concealer Blender.
Editor’s tip: Keep the color correctors on hand if you also have dark spots! Shades of orange are perfect for covering up other discolorations, too.
Step 2: Use a full coverage concealer. Don’t underestimate the power of makeup. If your regular old concealer doesn’t seem to make a dent in “disappearing” those dark circles, switch to a fuller coverage option, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Total Cover Concealing & Contour Kit. Reach for a makeup blender to apply, and blend and buff the concealer onto your skin for heavy-duty coverage that doesn’t actually look heavy. When you’re applying concealer to hide dark circles, create an upside-down triangle-shape under your eyes for a brightening effect.
Step 3: Set with face powder. You can’t let all your hard work slip away! Once you’ve finishing disguising your dark circles, apply a face powder, like the L’Oréal Paris Infallible Pro Sweep & Lock Loose Setting Face Powder, to your under-eye area. You’re all set!
