Updated on December 15, 2014

Hide Dark Circles and Moisturize Your Eyes

At some point in every woman's life she will probably wake up with dark circles under her eyes. Cold compresses, chilled cucumber slices, and even lemon juice can help to lighten your skin and reduce puffiness. While these methods are safe and effective it can take up to two weeks before the dark circles begin to noticeably fade. An under eye concealer, when it is the right shade can help hide embarrassing dark circles. When it is combined with a moisturizing eye cream, it can also help diminish fine lines and wrinkles.

Hide Dark Circles and Look Younger

The most important step to follow when you are trying to hide dark circles with a concealer is that it matches your skin tone or foundation. If you are using foundation a concealer that is a shade or two lighter might work best. Skin always looks best best when it is hydrated, and the delicate skin underneath your eyes will become thin and stretched when you are not getting enough fluids. This can also be a cause of the dark circles. The top eye creams contain natural ingredients that can soothe and hydrate the delicate skin. When your skin is smooth and hydrated, you will find that it is easier to apply the concealer.


Tips for Applying Under Eye Concealor

Once you have used a moisturizing eye cream and allowed it time to settle into your skin, it is time to apply the concealer. It should always be applied before your foundation, and most makeup experts recommend using a dot and blend method. This lets you evenly apply the concealer and gently blend it without irritating the sensitive skin underneath your eyes. One of the most common problems women experience with concealers is getting it to cover their dark circles without appearing to white.

Noticeably whiter skin underneath the eyes not only looks unnatural, it can also age your appearance and make you appear ill or fatigued. Blending the concealer away from the corners of your eyes can help prevent this problem, along with making sure that you are using the right shade. Some women have also found that they can avoid this embarrassing problem by only using the concealer under their eyes. This helps to prevent over applying or heavy makeup buildup that can also contribute to your dark circles.

Dark under eye circles are a problem that plagues almost all women at some point in their lives. The dark marks can be caused by a number of different factors, and can be an embarrassing problem that effects a woman's appearance and her self confidence. There are several different safe and natural methods to lighten and prevent dark circles, but you can also help hide them while you are waiting for the marks to go away. The top moisturizing eye creams can hydrate and improve your skin's appearance, while a complexion matching concealer can help to hide and minimize the dark circles. When the concealer is properly applied, it is possible to hide your dark under eye circles and help to improve the condition of your skin.
