When you wake-up looking like a raccoon, ordinary foundation may not be enough to hide your dark under eye circles. Excess fluid build-up in the area under the eyes, certain illnesses and medications, sleep habits and hereditary factors, are all contributing factors to the development of dark under eye circles. If dark under eye circles are a problem for you, you may want to consider using a makeup concealer to hide them.
Wash your face with your usual cleanser. Rinse and then pat your skin dry. A clean palette will help ensure a more even makeup application. Apply your eye cream and foundation if you wear it.
Cover your dark under eye circles with a cream concealer that is lighter than your natural skin tone. Dab the concealer on lightly using the pads of your fingertips, blending it in well.
Apply a concealer that is slightly darker than your natural skin tone if you are dealing with under eye puffiness, as well as dark circles. Blend well, using your fingertips.
Dust on a light layer of translucent face powder using a plush kabuki brush. Translucent powder will help set your concealer for the day.
