You are still beautiful! But, if you want to learn how to minimize those spots, I can teach you how to cover up dark circles so you will have more confidence and love that reflection staring back at you.
The Art of Color Correcting
Let’s take it back to your middle school art class. Do you remember the color wheel?? You have your circle of colors and the colors that are opposite each other on that wheel are called complementary colors. If you have purple circles under your eyes, then yellow will help cancel out those spots. If you have blue circles under your eyes, then orange will cancel out those areas. If you have brown circles under your eyes, then pink will help cancel those pesky spots.
Products You’ll Need
So, now that you kind of understand how to cancel out the colors of your dark circles, you’ll need a few things. If you have purple circles, you’ll need a yellow highlight. Sunlit is perfect for this because it has a yellowy undertone. If you have blue cirlces, you will need an orange highlight. Frenchie or Mango are great for this. If you have brown under your eyes, then pink will help you. Petal is great for this. You can either use your finger to apply the highlight or the Multitasker Brush is perfect for this.
