How to Correct Dark Circles With(out) Makeup
The microvascular network under the eye can easily get congested, whether from environmental causes or poor habits. When congestion occurs, skin under the eyes can look tired, giving it that red/blueish/brownish hue.
Here are a few easy and noninvasive ways to help lessen the appearance of dark circles:
- Lower your alcohol content
- Get plenty of sleep
- Sleep with your head slightly elevated at a 30 degree angle so fluid doesn’t drain into the eye area
- Stop smoking
Hydration helps flush out any discoloration, but sometimes is not enough. I highly recommend my ILLUMINATE AND CONTOUR EYE which contains two plant extracts that work together to synergistically fade dark circles, reduce wrinkle depth, and promote collagen and elastin synthesis.
Persian Silk Tree and Holy Herb have been proven to help visibly lift the upper eye by up to 91%.
We all know that makeup can only go so far. By using treatments and taking care of yourself from the inside out, you are often setting yourself up for success later on down the line.
How to Cover Dark Circles With Makeup
In addition to treating dark circles, you can also hide dark circles with makeup. Always begin with a foundation or concealer similar in shade to your natural skin tone. Peach is a very brightening color and works extremely well in a concealer.
Applying layer after layer of product under the eye— a sensitive area already— can make skin look creepy and dry. Less is always more. Unless your dark circles are very pronounced, using the same foundation shade as the rest of your face by itself is better than slathering on the product.
Blending with your fingers will help warm up the product, allowing for a more natural, softer blend.
We want your natural beauty to shine through always. By following my PROACTIVE LIFESTYLE TIPS AND TRICKS, as well as treating dark circles early, you can cover your dark circles with makeup swiftly and easily.
