The Ultimate Hack For Covering Dark Under Eye Circles

The Ultimate Hack For Covering Dark Under Eye Circles

As Summer comes to and end, the mornings get darker and it makes it 10 times harder for us to motivate ourselves, whether it’s getting up for work or making sure we’re doing our daily skincare regime. One skill we all need to master in a rush, is hiding the evidence of a lack of sleep. I’ve discovered the ultimate hack for covering pesky dark eye circles using the art of colour correcting. Check out my quick guide on how you can do just that in less than 5 minutes.

Step 1: Start with moisturised skin

I use the Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Moisturiser to nourish and hydrate my skin, adding a healthy glow.

Step 2: Colour correcting

For blue-hued dark circles use a pink colour corrector to counteract the blue. Cream blushers are great for this. I used the Apicia Liquid Blush that you may remember from our January GLOSSYBOX and blended it over my dark circles using my fingers. This may look a bit crazy but trust me, it works.

Step 3: Concealer

Take concealer and apply on top of the colour corrector. I swear by the Maybelline Eraser Eye Concealer, because it’s so creamy, blendable and affordable for everyday use.

Step 4: Blend blend blend

Take a damp blending sponge and dab the concealer into your skin.

The Final Result

Voilà! Dark circles are completely neutralised and concealed. Colour correcting really is they key because often (when I’m particularly tired) concealer alone just won’t suffice.
