Are your bright eyes being obscured by dark circles under the eyes? We all have them occasionally and some of us seem to have them for a long time. There are some things we can all do so that the focus is not the dark circles, but our eyes.
Those dark circles under your eyes can lower your self-esteem. They make us look older and tired. I do not like to get up and find these dark circles that stand out in my face. what color are my eyes? I have no idea because all I see are my eyes that look like “raccoon eyes”. Nothing attractive for men or women.
Dark circles are pretty only in pandas bears
For most of us dark circles are the result of fatigue, allergies, Excessive rubbing of the eyes and even a certain condition of the skin, such as atopic dermatitis or contact dermatitis. The dark circles under the eyes are the result of thinning of the skin and loss of collagen and fat. Unfortunately, this becomes very common as we age. This thinning can bring out the reddish and blue blood vessels under the eyes.
Although there are many creams, serums and gels in the market to combat dark circles, it is difficult to find the perfect product. There are things we can do in the meantime to help improve our appearance.
Here are some easy tips to help disguise the area and reduce the appearance of dark circles.
Focus on the eyes,
Not on the skin around the eyes Make your eyes stand out, my main advice is to use an eyelash curler. Men, do not panic because this advice can work for you too. You can buy a cheap eyelash curler at any pharmacy. The curler will make your eyes look bigger instantly, by producing a shadow in the orbital bone. If you use mascara, just apply it on the upper lashes. If you apply mascara to the lower lashes, you may run the risk of creating a shadow that will add darkness to the skin under the eyes. I have mentioned in previous articles that an eyelash curler is one of my fundamental tools. Once you start using it, you will not be able to put it aside.
Hair Removal Has Lasting Effects Nothing is as powerful as a well-formed eyebrow to open our eyes. This advice is not just for women. Men should also pay attention to their eyebrows to make sure they are well cared for. Eliminate and shave excess hair to accentuate the natural shape of the eyebrow. Do not you feel comfortable doing this? Go to a professional the first time to see the difference and you can better understand how this simple step can make a difference.
Say no to the lines on the lower eyelid
We usually love how the eyelids look with the perfect lines. However, when we cover the lower eyelid, we risk placing emphasis on dark circles. If the aligner is your thing, Simply apply it on the upper part of the eyelid. If you have to use it at the bottom, choose a color that is lighter. It’s a simple trick that always works.
Perfect the art of using shadows
Makeup is a wonderful tool. The more you practice your technique, the more comfortable you’ll feel using cosmetics. When it comes to shadows, avoid using dark colors on the upper eyelid. If you have dark circles, smoky colors may not be the best choice for you. Try to use pink colors, natural mocha colors or lilac colors. Or better yet, try using a monochrome tone. Use a shade color in a lighter shade and apply it to the eyelid and orbital bone. Use a brighter tone on the orbital bone and the inner corner of the eye to help make the area appear lighter. By keeping your makeup fresh and neutral, it will definitely remove attention from the area under the eyes. Make sure you have fun with the colors to see what works for you.
Cover with Corrector
A good corrector is your best defense against dark circles. Although I know that most men do not use makeup, there is nothing wrong with using a concealer to help you remove dark circles. If you do it right, no one will notice that you are using it. When choosing a corrector it is important to balance the predominant tone of the dark circles. Yellow-based correctors are perfect for most dark circles. But this technique is based on trial and error. I learned a long time ago not to look for the proper tone for my skin by myself. What looked like the right color in the stores always looked different when applied at home.
I have a whole box of proofreaders that I have only used once because I chose the wrong color. Now I depend on the experts in the make-up shop to help me choose the right shades. They are great to help and give you a service that will help you save a lot of time and money.
Make sure the tone of your correct is a little clearer than the tone of your skin or base. Look for something that is creamy in texture so it does not focus on dark lines and cause cracks during the day. Do not make the mistake of using too much corrector or applying it under your complete eye. Only apply the product where the dark circles are. It is usually a small semicircle that starts in the middle of the eye and continues toward the cheeks. Use your fingers, a sponge or a soft brush to apply the concealer in the dark areas. It is always a good idea to apply the last corrector. This way, you can make sure to clean any makeup that has finished in the area under the eyes before applying it. Remember to use the corrector carefully since you do not want to create more attention to this area.
If you really want to take care of the skin around the eyes and make sure that the makeup is applied without problem, Invest in a moisturizing gel or eye cream. Hydration usually makes the area look a bit swollen and smooth at first. This will help you when applying the concealer and will help you eliminate those dark circles. And men, this is also for you. Both men and women can benefit from a good regimen for skin care, and a product to moisturize the eyes is a must.
I really wish there was a magic product to remove the dark circles permanently. Until then, we will continue to look for some quick fixes through the trial and error method.
