How do dark circles appear?  


Dark circles, drawn features, bags under the eyes, are signs generally due to fatigue. The origin of dark circles is due to slowed blood circulation to the lower area of ​​our eyes.

  1. Then apply over your concealer. Generally, this is chosen a shade lighter than that of your skin, in order to brighten your eyes.  
  1. Then use your usual foundation to even out the color of your skin. Do not add too much material to avoid the mask effect.  
  1. To finish, you can apply a little highlighter to the cheekbones and the bridge of your nose for a shiny and luminous complexion.  

Intensify your gaze  


To avoid eyes falling on your dark circles, intensify your gaze so that it attracts all the attention. If you are surrounded, opt more for luminous and fresh makeup. Avoid shades that are too dark, which will bring out the color of your dark circles. If you have blue eyes, opt for orange shades and if you have brown eyes, go for gold. 

Also take care of your eyebrows, reshape them using an eyebrow pencil and apply light eye shadow under your brow bone to widen your eyes. Finally, don't forget to draw a light line of eyeliner on your upper eyelid to enhance your entire make-up.
