Covering Under Eye Circles
The fastest cure for dark circles is to apply concealer. Choose a gold-based color that matches your skin shade exactly (the gold will counteract the blue of the under eye circle).
The most common mistake women make when applying concealer is choosing a color that's too light - this only achieves a "reverse raccoon" effect.
Another common problem: putting the concealer only under the eye. You should apply it all around the eye area, and be sure to blend well.
Set the concealer with a light dusting of translucent face powder so that it stays put. And to avoid drawing attention to your under eye area, don't apply eyeliner or mascara to your lower lashes.
Often, the inner corner of the eye is the darkest part. A white shimmer pencil will cover it. Some companies manufacture a blueish or white pencil just for this purpose.
