Dark circles under the eyes for some men and women can be very distressing. We often get requests for help and for most clients that we see, the dark circles are concealed successfully. However, there are aspects of an under eye camouflage application that need to explained.
The skin under the eye is thin and often lined, therefore the camouflage creams may ‘sit’ in the creases. Setting powders including translucent powders can sometimes make dark circles look more obvious and the skin look drier. Wearing glasses can rub and cause friction, therefore ‘lifting’ the camouflage creams.
Liquid or diluted cover creams provide a ‘less heavy’ application under the eyes whilst still retaining their intense pigment. When fine lines are present apply less, even if the coverage is compromised. The underlying dark pigment can seep through, so apply an orange or pure white first. Judge the coverage at conversational distance. All topical products can be seen very close up.
Yes, dark circles can be camouflage but it doesn’t work for everyone.
The skin around the eyelid is naturally more pigmented than the surrounding paler facial skin. Prep the skin with a Matte Base.
Define the hollow area using Varama Mixing Brush and Varama VC1. Exaggerate the application to the inner corner. Then apply skin coloured Varama VC3 and blend.
Visible instant results!
