This Dark Circle Hack Is Sweeping the Internet

Color Theory 101

Makeup’s an art form, so just like we taught you with color-correcting concealers, the trick to mastering the color wheel is understanding the way in which certain shades interact with one another. Yellow concealers can help hide purple or blue veins and bruises, green concealer can help neutralize redness and purple concealer can help to eliminate unwanted yellow undertones. So, where does that leave red? Well, color-correcting concealers have already introduced peach and orange concealers to the market to target the appearance of dark under-eye circles. And, since you’re a color wheel pro, then you’re well aware that those colors are offshoots of red. What does this all mean? In short, this hack may be useful for some to help reduce the appearance of dark circles if you’re in a pinch and/or have run out of your peach- or orange-hued concealer.

Editor’s Note: As much as you may love the sound of this dark circle hack, remember that at the end of the day, you still have lipstick under your eyes. While you already know how important it is to cleanse effectively each and every night, you may forget that removing lipstick often takes a bit more effort. So, when it comes to rinsing away your makeup, reach for a bottle of the Garnier SkinActive Micellar Cleansing Water All-in-1 Waterproof. We especially love this micellar water because it’s formulated for all skin types — yes, even sensitive skin — and removes even stubborn makeup with no rinsing or harsh rubbing.
