Do you suffer from “panda eyes” thanks to the extremely persistent dark circles? If yes, use this trick only once if you haven’t yet, and you will thank me for introducing it to you. No – it’s not the commonly known tea bags, or frozen spoons tricks (which also work very well). This is a makeup trick – using the colour Orange!
I’m not kidding – remember concealing & correcting from my earlier post? I thought this one needs little more attention.
Now, keep the colour wheel in mind while you read further. The dark circles under your eyes are usually a mix of blue & grey colours. When we use the shade directly opposite to blue in the colour wheel, which is Orange, we neutralize the dark circles.
There are lots of brands that sell orange ‘colour correctors’ you can select from. I use the Kryolan Supracolor 303. But in case you don’t want to invest in one, you can use an orange lipstick (creamy, not matt) & it will work just fine.
3-step Application Technique & Process:
- Correct: Apply the orange corrector all around the under eyes (preferably in an inverted triangle shape) using your finger or a brush, making sure you don’t miss the tricky inner corners – Since this is the first product you are applying, application is easy. Just make sure the product is well blended & is covering all the darkness.
- Conceal: Use a concealer a shade lighter that your skin tone & apply it over the orange corrector using dabbing motion with your finger or a brush. Do not drag the concealer, else you will disturb the orange corrector below it & end up looking muddy.
- Powder: Use a translucent powder or pressed powder – dab & pack the corrector & concealer with this from outer corner of the eye to inwards, so as to minimizing chances of any creases & to make sure it stays longer.
It’s that simple! Trust me & do this at least once to know the effect it has. In fact, with the Mother’s Day coming up, you could probably use this trick for your moms & make them feel pampered & pretty as well!
