Getting rid of dark circles might be the number one question I get from clients and friends. Here are a few tricks to help you look rested & refreshed.
Something you need to know about your under eye area, is that the skin around the eye is the thinnest, most delicate skin of your entire body. The capillaries are also much closer to the surface & easily broken. Broken capillaries + translucent skin = dark circles.
Tip: When doing anything in your eye area, use your ring finger. It is the weakest digit & will cause the least amount of pressure. No kidding! I’ll give you a minute to test it out……. crazy, right?!
Also rubbing, tugging, or touching that area can cause more darkness. So use creme or liquid eye liners vs. pencils. Also try not to touch your face or eyes at all.
Makeup tips: Apply concealer with a brush to undereyes, blend with a damp sponge and set with translucent powder using the same damp sponge. Brush away that excess powder and voila – you’ve got flawless, creaseless undereyes! Lift concealer from Make Up Forever is pretty awesome & found at Sephora.
