Tricks for Dark Circles and Tired Eyes

There is nothing worse than having your face look tired with large under eye circles. It’s not pretty and it does not have to be this way!

  1. s1375625-main-heroMy first suggestion will be to purchase Origins GinZing Refreshing Eye Cream. The beautiful thing about this product is that it’s a rosey pink colour. Pink undertones will best combat and correct the blue tones underneath your eyes. Put this on and you will definitely notice a difference.
  2. images-3Always use a cream concealer! The coverage is much better and that’s exactly what you need when dealing with dark circles. Warm it up in your hand or on your finger before applying it, it should be very creamy before putting it on. And be generous with it! I use MAC Studio Finish SPF 35 IN NC 20. The trick is to go light…much lighter than your skin-tone.
  3. images-2Next I use a liquid concealer, I use MAC Select Cover-Up also in NC20. I like putting some liquid on top because A) it gives it a more dewy finish and B) It makes it even lighter. I always put it on my hand first then dab it on under my eye.
  4. s870675-main-heroI sometimes do this but not all the time, settling the concealer I use Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder. This product is very amazing the powder contains micronized pigments that will not settle in fine lines or accentuate shadows and instantly delivers a soft, weightless finish.

ana12When applying the concealer(s) make sure to bring it down towards your cheek bone. It will give your face more definition and make everything blend in! Dark circles is said to be caused by dairy so that could be something to keep in mind. I am dairy free and although I don’t have dark circles I still use this makeup technique because I love the results.
