How to apply the best beauty products for concealing dark circles

  • Prepare the eye area using a moisturizer or a lightweight eye gel and wait for them to absorb into the skin.  
  • Use the concealer after the foundation, to make your face look more natural.
  • There are three ways to apply concealer – using your fingertips, a brush, or a small makeup sponge.
  • Start with the darker areas from the inner corner of the eye and avoid rubbing.
  • Apply another layer only after a minute or two if results are not entirely satisfactory.
  • Satin and soft matte finishing generally work best for covering the undereye circles.
  • Brightening options fit all skin tones as they come with additional color-correct tools.
  • The coverage shouldn’t be entirely opaque to avoid looking lifeless and dull. If full-coverage products fail, go for medium-coverage concealers.
  • Test them with both day and night makeup on. Depending on the type of makeup, your looks will change, and colors might look different on your face.
