As attractive as dark circles under your eyes are (not), choosing a cosmetics concealer can be your ticket to saying goodbye to dark circles and hello to those bright, gorgeous eyes.
Those sad circles can be caused by too little sleep, retention of fluid underneath your eyes, seasonal allergies, or even genetics.
Since you can't change your genes and more sleep may not be an option, the time has come to choose a cosmetics concealer and hide the circles that are hiding your eyes.
Most people know that concealer can help their problem areas, but few know how to pick the right color or the right formula for their skin.
Applying the wrong concealer can be even worse than not applying any at all.
Cosmetic concealers generally come in shades of either peach or yellow, and each shade has a different purpose.
Often, these two colors are packaged together because most people need a little bit of both for the best coverage.
Since the actual colors are pretty much the same, the trick is to find out whether a light, medium, or dark depth is best for your particular complexion.
Choosing Concealer Color
While the choice between a cream and a liquid is totally based on your personal preference and has little science behind it, the color is an entirely different story.
The condition that you are trying to conceal will determine the color that you should use.
Darker circles that are black or deep blue will require a peach concealer for the best possible coverage.
Light-skinned women tend to have pinkish spots, which can also be caused by hay fever and allergies. These are best covered by a lighter yellow concealer.
