Dark circles — whether you love them, hate them, or don’t mind them, we all need a helping hand from time to time. Dark circles are genetic, so they’re impossible to ‘get rid of’, but if you’re looking to conceal them, you can rely on some of our best concealers for dark circles. Get your hauls at the ready…
How Do I Apply Under-Eye Concealer?
Before you choose your favourite, it’s important to know what formulas to look for and how to apply under-eye concealer for a flawless finish, every time.
Whilst you might favour heavier, matte formulas for hiding breakouts, the under-eye area is a whole different ball game. The skin around the eyes is much more delicate, meaning that lightweight formulas are essential for a soft, seamless finish that avoids creasing or settling into fine lines. When tackling dark circles, you’ll want to bag any brightening properties that help to neutralise pigmentation and cover purple tones.
Finally, for application, patting a light layer into the skin using fingertips, a brush, or sponge would be our choice. We’d always advise setting it with powder for a finish that lasts all day without fading or creasing.
