Step 1: Position mirror Position your mirror for the best possible light—natural light is preferred—and lean forward for the best view of your circles. Step 2: Prep eyes Prep the skin under your eyes by applying the eye cream or moisturizer. This does not mean a shimmery cream or reflective moisturizer—that would draw attention to what you're trying to hide. Tip Allow the moisturizer to absorb before applying under-eye concealer or, for lighter circles, mix a little cream with the concealer and apply them together. Step 3: Apply foundation If you use foundation, apply it now. Step 4: Apply concealer With a brush or your finger, apply concealer one to two shades lighter than your skin tone to the darkest area. Don't go too light—that could create a reverse-raccoon look! Tip If your circles are purple, use a yellowish concealer, and vice versa. If they're green, use a red or pink concealer, and vice versa. Step 5: Blend Blend by gently tapping, not sweeping, the concealer. Stop short of your lower lash line, and blend past the dark area. Tip A brush allows for finer control, but the warmth of your fingertip can help dissolve the concealer into your skin. If you use your finger, try your ring or pinkie finger to avoid pressing too hard on this delicate skin. Step 6: Apply powder Apply a light dusting of translucent powder over the concealer to lock in your look. Did You Know? Eye circles are often inherited, but you may be able to eliminate or minimize them by consulting a doctor, since they also can be caused by allergies, poor diet, and sinus infections.
