How to cover up dark circles with make-up?

Products Required:

  • Moisturiser/Eye Creams.
  • Concealer/Corrector.
  • Foundation.
  • Compact.
  • Concealer and other make-up brushes.


Step 1:Cleanse your face.Apply a moisturiser or eye cream.If you don't prefer this you can skip to primer.

Step 2:Pick a concealer/corrector according to your skin tone and cover up the dark circles.. 

NYX,Clinique,MAC have skin correctors.If you don't find these concealers/correctors,you can use your matte eye shadows(without shimmer/ glitter)
  • Pale Skin Tone-Light Pink Shades.
  • Medium Skin Tone-Peach Shades.
  • Dusky/Dark Skin Tone-Orange Shades.
The point of using these concealers/correctors is they neutralise the dark or blue discolouration thereby covering them up.

Step 3:You can dab a little concealer on the eye area.

Step 4:Finish it up with foundation(optional) or dust it with a compact.You are done!
