Spent a little too long at the Zoom meeting yesterday and already the next morning there are dark circles under your eyes that last the whole day? Simply apply some red lipstick around the eyes, foundation over it, and all traces of last night are gone.
We’ll show you how to quickly and easily make your dark circles disappear and make your eyes shine again.
Beauty hack: this is how you can skillfully hide your dark circles
Apply some red lipstick to an eyeshadow brush and spread it under your eyes and on your eyelid. If you have a fair complexion, you should go for pink or peach-colored tones, for darker skin tones you should go for orange-red colors. Then blend the lipstick a little with a sponge or your fingers.
Let the lipstick take effect briefly and then simply apply your concealer or your normal foundation on it and blend it again. Your dark circles should be a thing of the past.
Why does it work
If you take a closer look at the color spectrum, it is actually logical why this trick works so well. Red and orange are the complementary colors of darker tones like green or blue and they cancel each other out. The red lipstick visually absorbs the dark color of the shadows under the eyes, so to speak.
