Christmas party season is now upon us and I am sure a lot of you are similar to me in that when I don’t sleep enough; I get these deep, dark bruises under my eyes. It can be a pain to find all of the right application tips to hide dark circles that make me appear more awake than I actually am. If you have the same problem as me, I’ve got some amazing makeup tricks to help hide those pesky dark circles which you may well need to look your best this party season!
Primer will not only make sure that the concealer holds better, but it will also ensure that the concealer stays put all day! This trick to hide dark circles has saved me on those long office days! I put a dab under each eye, rub it in and then use my concealer!
Shadow, liner & mascara first
It might seem a little bit backwards to put all of your eye makeup on first, right? This makeup trick actually makes sense though, that way you can cover up any of the mascara or eyeliner flaws that might have occurred during application! So put all of your eye makeup on first and then slip on your concealer!
Spread concealer to your nose
Another makeup trick to hide dark circles is all about spreading the concealer all the way to your nose, that way you really get all of the darkness away. I use this trick when I’ve had a really bad night of sleep and then I buff away all of the darkness. It makes me look alert and wide awake!
Blend away dark circles
One of the best makeup tricks to hide all of the dark circles that you have is to make sure that you are blending. Truthfully, this is the key to hiding your dark circles. You want to blend away the dark and replace it with skin that looks perfect and alert! So girls, blend away!
Get the right shade
The right shade of concealer is very, very important, girls! You don’t want to get a concealer that isn’t going to work with your skin tone and that could look bad! So make sure that you take a look at a bunch of different concealers and find one that will look great on your skin!
Find your texture
With all of the new trends out there, there are a ton of different concealers out there too! Whether you opt for the fluffy lightweight concealer or you go with a cream, there are a lot of different textures to take into account. So, which texture is your favourite? Mine is cream, I find that it works best!
