How to get rid of those dark circles

Dark circles is something that everyone suffer, well almost everyone . The only difference would be the intensity . That’s all. We as Indians, tend to have dark circles that can look like  as if we’ve bee beaten up (well figuratively)

There are several different ways to cover dark circles, all that will depend on the color of your dark circle. The color of the corrector/concealer that you would use would depend on

1. Your skin tone

2. The kind of under eye circles you have.

Different kinds of under eye circles

– Bluish Under Eye Circles

– Violet-Reddish Under Eye Circles

– Brownish-Black Under Eye Circles

– Dark and Shadowy Under Eye Circles

As Indians , we commonly suffer from  the last three types of under eyes circles. So depending on your skin tone, You will need the following types of corrector.

  • Deep Rust Corrector (dark orange-copper) for the deepest complexions. Now you don’t have to buy this brand, just look for concealers of this color. This color will act as a corrector, which means that after patting this on you WILL need to apply a regular concealer matching your skin tone.
