Counteracting Under Eye Darkness

I feel that this is a constant concern of mine: under eye darkness. It's the dreaded part of my whole make up routine, and why I wear glasses more often than I'd like to admit. However, all is not lost, there are ways to get rid of the horrible patches under your eyes if only for the day.

There are three tried and true steps for covering up "the darkness"

1) Corrector
2) Concealer
3) Powder

Corrector brightens, concealer lightens and powder sets all your work.

Now, for color choosing, if you're a light skinned gal then you want a pink color corrector, if you're medium skinned then you want a peach based corrector, if you're a little darker skinned then look for a darker peach base. Start from the inner most corner of your eye, apply a generous amount with a brush; enough to block out the darkness. Blend by gently tapping with your fingers.

When choosing concealer you want to pick a yellow based color that is two shades lighter than your foundation color. This is on purpose, concealer is meant to lighten. Start from the inner most corner of your eye and apply it generously with a brush, cover the entire dark area under your eye and blend the concealer by using your fingers and pressing lightly into the skin.

Once you have applied concealer set your under eye make up with a little yellow toned loose powder.

And Voila! Normal person looking eyes.
