Bust those Morning Blues: How to Properly Conceal Tired Eyes
Are you dealing with dark circles no matter how much sleep you’re getting? Proper concealing is one of the best things that you can do to look awake, well-rested and ready to go! (Even if you’re not!)
In the morning, start with your regular routine of washing and moisturizing your face. Don’t skip the moisturizer! Moisturizing will help the concealer blend into the skin and prevent it from making any dry patches more apparent.
Then apply your foundation as you usually would. After you apply your foundation, you will see what you need to conceal, whether it is blemishes or under eye circles.
To properly conceal, you need to take color theory into consideration. To neutralize the color of your under eye circles, you need to use a colored concealer. Identify what color your dark circles are. Most people have blueish/purple dark circles. This is why there are so many pinky/salmon colored concealers.
Step 1: Neutralize your dark circles by using a color at the opposite side of the color wheel as your dark circles. Don’t rub. The skin around the eyes is really delicate. If you are using your fingers, dab lightly. You can also use a makeup sponge or a brush.
