Want to know how to cover dark circles like a pro? Then you've come to the right place. Conceal those panda eyes with our simple and effective 2-step guide.
1) For starters, you want to tread lightly when covering dark circles. The thin skin under your eyes naturally wrinkles when you smile, so if you cake on the makeup it will crease.
2) Apply a little brightening eye cream to fully hydrate the area and prep it for makeup. We love Goldfaden MD Bright Eye, €58, is an ultra-lightweight brightening eye cream that works fast to reduce the appearance of under eye darkness, pufﬁness and ﬁne lines for a more luminous and youthful glow.
2) Next, use a lightweight, illuminating, concealer. Kevyn Aucoin The Sensual Skin Enhancer, €51, is a hydrating and radiant product that offers good coverage but also nourishment to the delicate skin on the under-eye area. You can apply this with your ring finger, a small soft brush or a sponge.
Top tip: Apply the concealer in a V-shape from the outer corners of your eyes down to a point on your cheek and blend. Why? It helps your concealer blend seamlessly with your foundation and prevents you from getting bright tell-tale rings under your eyes.
