You're Doing It Wrong: Covering Up Your Under Eye Circles

Step 1: Apply a light eye cream underneath the eye area. Gently pat it in with the pad of your index finger. It should absorb quickly and leave your skin feeling smooth.


Step 2: Use a concealer brush or your index finger to apply the concealer in a triangle shape underneath your eyes. This covers your dark circles and draws attention to your cheekbones.

Try Maybelline's DreamLumi Touch Highlighting Concealer ($6.63). It covers dark sports and makes your skin look healthier and brighter.


Step 2: Use a concealer brush or your index finger to apply the concealer in a triangle shape underneath your eyes. Let me suggest applying the concealer in a pie piece under your eye instead. This covers your dark circles and darks attention to your cheekbones.


Step 3: Apply the concealer all the way up to your lash line and onto the dark areas by the inner corners of your eyes. This is the most crucial step in properly applying concealer!


Step 4: Use more concealer than you think you need, and blend it into the skin using the pad of your index finger in a soft, patting motion. If you still see dark circles, go ahead and apply a second layer of concealer. Try Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kits ($33). They're amazing!


Step 5: To the lock the concealer into place, apply pale yellow powder over the concealer and on the eyelids with a powder puff. We like Everyday Minerals Finishing Dust ($12.99).
