How To Conceal Your Under Eye Dark Circles And Dark Spots Like A Pro

Many women battle with under eye dark circles and dark spots and usually find it difficult to hide them beneath their make up application.

Read below easy steps you can use to apply your concealer without any sight of dark circles.


To counteract the blue/gray colour under the eyes, you need to use a colour opposite on the color wheel which would be orange.  If you have fair skin, you’ll want a light to medium peach colour. For medium to dark skin, a dark peach or orange colour.

You need the colour of the concealer to be 1-2 shades darker than your skin so it actually hides the dark circles.  Apply the concealer low enough under the eyes to completely cover the dark circles (don’t worry about it looking orange, as it will blend it out in the next step)


If you don’t wear foundation, use a concealer the same color as your skin tone and pat on top of the orange concealer you just applied.  This will blend the peach/orange concealer into the skin and make it appear more natural.  Be careful around the eyes not to swipe off the orange concealer underneath.  The goal is just to blend the concealer into the foundation.

This step is optional, but if you feel you can still see your dark circles, you may want to brighten with a lighter color concealer.  All you need is a thin consistency concealer, choose a colour that is 1 shade lighter than your skin- this is to brighten under the eyes. Place a couple of dots under your eye and use a soft dome brush to blend softly.


If you have dry skin, you can skip applying face powder and just use a matte eyeshadow 2 shades lighter than your skin.  Using the same soft dome brush, apply a thin layer under the eyes just to set the concealer and prevent it from creasing throughout the day.  If you need powder all over the face, use a flat thin sponge and apply a thin layer of powder in the T Zone and under the eyes.
