As soon as I go to bed later, the dark circles appear under my eyes the next day. However, it is not necessary to get enough sleep – the skin under the eyes is so soft, thin and sensitive that it often looks a little worse than other areas on the face. This is partly due to the fact that sometimes we forget about the elementary protection from the sun, as a result of which the skin becomes less elastic.
In make-up, even daily, it is important that the areas under the eyes were light. And some make-up artists even use products with a slight radiance (such as mother-of-pearl) to hide the signs of fatigue and give the face freshness.
Many women use the same remedy for the skin as for the entire face. In principle, this option is possible, but it is suitable for those who do not suffer from too visible defects. In such cases, the foundation, of course, is able to even out the tone of the face as a whole.
However, do not forget that the skin under the eyes often suffers from a lack of moisture, and most of the foundation creams still dry the skin. To avoid this, you can mix the foundation with a regular moisturizer before applying it on the sponge or palm.
But the foundation, which is designed for problem skin, under the eyes it is better not to use. It contains drying and antibacterial components, and sometimes even alcohol, which is unacceptable for delicate areas under the eyes.
This is the name of the corrector, which is intended not only for masking circles under the eyes, but also for spot correction of problem areas on the entire face. It differs from the usual foundation in a more dense texture and, as a result, in a greater opacity.
I remember that my first correctors were sticks in the form of lipstick from Oriflame and Avon, but then I used them to hide the inflamed areas. Now it is necessary to resort to similar means almost every day, and the reason is not at all that another pimple appeared on the face. Lack of sleep makes itself felt and manifests itself in the form of signs of fatigue under the eyes.
Now I have two concealers – in different colors and shapes. Maybelline Affinitone is darker because I acquired it in the summer when there was a tan on the skin. It is produced in a form that resembles lip gloss – a dense texture and foam rubber applicator. Another proofreader – from Ninelle, is also quite good, although I have it as a dry stick.
When choosing concealer it is important not to be mistaken with the color. If you buy a darker, the circles under the eyes will remain dark. If you get a light – the area around the eyes will be too stand out from the rest of the skin.
More professional proofreaders may come in reddish and greenish hues. No, I was not mistaken, just with the correct application technique, the green color blocks the reddish and the reddish blue under the eyes.
Apply corrective agent under the eyes should be on a clean, moisturized skin. Usually, I apply concealer (dry or liquid) with dot movements, and then evenly distribute it over the whole area, the color of which needs correction.
If you use foundation or powder, then they can be used to even out the overall complexion after applying the concealer.
The appearance of dark circles under the eyes is easier to prevent. Although, one of us thinks about it, watching an interesting film well past midnight, or waking up several times to a children’s crying in the middle of the night.
To improve the situation a little, you can use special compresses for the skin under the eyes – cucumber, tea, ice from herbal infusions.
