Dark circles are one of the universal beauty issues that the majority of ladies go through! They can appear due to lack of sleep, sun exposure or could also be genetic in nature.

Colour Correct The Dark Circles

Mrs. Damini Chaturvedi says, “Colour correct the dark circles using the correct shade of the corrector. Dark circles normally are blue or grey in shade. To correct them, you need to pick a shade that is opposite to them in the colour wheel. Usually, for the Indian skin tone, the colour that's widely used is either peach or orange (depending upon the intensity).”

Correct Shade Of The Concealer

Once the colour corrector is applied in the concerned areas, the next important step is to pick the correct shade of the concealer.  Ideally, it's best to choose a shade or two darker than your skin tone to hide the problem area or else a lighter shade would further highlight the darkness of the eyes.

Blend The Concealer
