Getting ready for a night out but can’t seem to get rid of those unsightly dark circles under your eyes? Don’t panic. A dab here and a brush there will easily have you looking from drab to fab.

Follow five simple makeup tricks and watch those dark circles fade away like they never existed.

1. It all starts with a concealer

You’ve heard about celebrities magically hiding those flaws under concealer. Now it’s your turn to try out this trending makeup hack. Before you wonder how to conceal the dark circles, know that it is not difficult. Simply choose a brighter hue like orange or red. Light or medium peach hues are ideal for fair skin tones, while darker shades of peach or orange work well for wheatish to dusky complexions. Ensure that the shade you choose is at least 1-2 shades darker than your actual skin color. Using your finger, apply a slight coat to provide even coverage under your eyes.

2. Blending it well

The next most important step to get that natural look is blending your foundation with the orange or peach concealer. Using a beauty blender or brush, carefully blend the foundation with the concealer, being cautious as to not wipe off the concealer in the process. Apply foundation to your whole face for even coverage.

3. Adding that extra sheen

Although, you may choose to skip this step, we suggest it if you want the dark circles around eyes to be completely hidden. Choose a concealer with a light consistency, preferably one that is a shade lighter than your complexion. Apply a few dots onto the contour of your lower eyelid using a dome brush and gently blend. This will brighten up your eyes and give you a dewy look.

4. Don’t let it cake off

In case of dry skin, you could simply skip using the face powder and settle for a matte eyeshadow that is 1-2 shades lighter than your own complexion. Applying a thin coat under your eyes will ensure you don’t end up with a cake face.

5. Lipstick hack

Alternatively, you could use red or orange lipstick if getting your hands on a colored concealer is difficult. After putting on foundation using an eyeshadow brush start applying the red lipstick onto the area under your eyes to provide even coverage. Then take a concealer and evenly cover the red area. Thereafter, blend well using a beauty blender until you achieve the right color.
