There are three types of dark circles: brown that are linked to hyperpigmentation; hollow circles that create a shadow under the eye; and blue-toned circles caused by sluggish microcirculation. If your dark circles fall into one of the first two categories, go for a concealer to camouflage them. Choose one that is just slightly lighter than your skin tone and apply it directly to the dark circles. Beware of the “barn owl effect” from overly white shades applied all around the eye! Use the same technique if you have more bluish dark circles. You’re in luck: you have the option of using a skin care base that reactivates the microcirculation and restores the clarity of the eye area from within. Getting more sleep, eating a balanced diet and reducing your screen time also make a big difference.
