Despise seeing dark under-eye circles!!!! – BeAuTy CrIsiS!!

Please girlie's try  to find a concealer that actually covers up those dark circles, it can be tough, but luckily I have searched a few of our favorite makeup artists an have weighed in on how to keep your eyes looking fresh!

When choosing a concealer for under the eyes, you want something that's really creamy, camouflages darkness, lifts and brightens around the eyes. Having a slight melon tone to your concealer will balance those unwelcome dark shades that reside beneath the eye.

Also, application is key. Use your finger and pat the product from the inside corner of the eye and out to give a smooth, natural coverage. You only need a little because too much concealer can actually bring focus to the under eye area. Make sure you layer as you go. Avoid applying to much concealer under the eye area at one time. This can create a cakey look.

When using concealer under the eye you want to make sure the color is at least one to two shades lighter then your skin tone. If it is not lighter it will not lighten up the dark circles. It is typical for a girl with dark circles who has only used a concealer to end up with a gray color under the eyes. This is primarily because the color is not rich enough. You need to find a basic concealer that is one to two shades lighter than the skin tone, and mix it with a very rich foundation.

For some, their most captivating feature can be one's eyes. Please, invest in a  concealer that suits your skin tone and avoid leaving  your home with dark under-eye circles. It helps enhance a refreshing look that would be appropriate for going to work or simply running your daily errands.
