Dark circles are a tricky enemy. You can't just combat them with a typical skin-toned concealer. You have to attack the root cause of dullness by correcting the blues and purples. Because once you offset these colors, your regular concealer won't have to work too hard to hide your tired eyes.
Here are the three types of color correcting concealers that can instantly make you look brighter and appear well-rested:
For mild dark circles, a touch of peach on the discolored areas is a good base for your regular concealer.
Try: Pixi by Petra Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach, SM Makati
NARS Creamy Radiant Concealer in Custard, Glorietta 4
Orange is blue's anti-color. It sits on the opposite side of the color wheel and it corrects the dullness from those sleepless nights.
Try: NYX Dark Circle Concealer in Medium, SM Megamall
Giorgio Armani Master Corrector in Orange, Rustan's
If all you need is some more light under your eyes, yellow is your best bet. It'll lift your under eye area back up and highlight the eyebags away.
Try: BYS Color Correcting Stick, Department Stores
NYX HD Photogenic Concealer Wand in Yellow, SM Megamall
Now you're ready to walk out the door with brighter eyes!
