Today, I wanted to share a handy, little trick that I learned to hide under eye circles. I actually learned this method from Deepica Mutyala, but I changed the products she used to make it a bit more affordable. The idea is using a lipstick as a correcter. I choose the bright red Chaos by NYX, which was only about $4! Can’t go wrong with that.
I prefer to do this after I put on my foundation, but feel free to do it before. All I do it take my pinky finger and tap on some of the Chaos on my dark circles. Also, I add some to the outer corner of my eyes because those are also very dark. I rub it out lightly, just to get it to not be too bright. You want a “haven’t slept in days/kinda dead” look, rather than a “by mistake I applied bright red lipstick to my eyes” look. Know what a mean? If not, here’s a picture.
After that, I just add my concealer all over it. I use the Tarte Maracuja Creaseless Concealer. I prefer to tap it on with my finger. If you use a brush, pat the concealer in lightly, don’t drag the brush or else you’ll move your concealer and the red lipstick.
This bright red color is better for medium/olive skin tones close to mine. If you want to see which color is for you, check out this correcter site. For whatever color it says cancels out your dark circles/blemishes, just get a lipstick. You can use it as a double duty makeup weapon: correcter and lipstick!
Hope you guys enjoyed! Thanks so much for reading!
