How to Cover Under Eye Circles With Makeup
When leaky capillaries get emphasized due to aging, fatigue, dehydration, skin pigmentation and several other causes, dark under eye circles appear. If this situation is a matter of concern to you, it is recommended that you consult a physician about this discoloration appearance. However, in the meantime something can be done by you in order to cover up the circles and temporarily restore the normal appearance of the skin around your eyes with the help of little makeup.
The things that you will need to carry out this home based concealment of under eye circles are very easy to get. They are water, soap, a towel, liquid foundation, yellow-based liquid concealer (which should be at least one or two shades lighter than your foundation), a wedge sponge, dusting powder and powder puff.
The steps that need to be followed require careful attention. Otherwise, the ingredients required for the treatment for the above issue will be contaminated and the entire initiative could be wasted. All you need is a bit of your aesthetic sense.
Firstly, make sure that you wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 2-3 minutes and then dry up your hands by patting them with a clean towel.
Take one or two drops of the foundation in one of your hands and then mix it with the concealer with the help of a wedge sponge or concealer brush. Make sure that the two ingredients are mixed well.
You can use the same wedge sponge or concealer brush for the application of the above created mixture. You have to make sure the entire area of under eye circles is spattered with the mixture. If there is any mixture spattered inside or outside the eye corner, then pat it dry gently from inside to the outer parts of the eye corner.
You can dip a small portion of the powder puff in the container of the face powder and remove the excess powder by shaking the puff well over the container. In order to set the concealer or the foundation, gently use the powder puff for patting the powder right from inside corner of your eye. This will hold the foundation and give you a fresh look and reduces the appearance of dark under eye circles.
