Best Concealer to Cover Undereye Circles

If you have dark circles and discoloration around your eyes, you’re going to want to read this.  Here’s my secret to using concealer to cover up dark under eyes:

  1. Depuff: I used my Tarte Pack Your Bags 911 Undereye Rescue Patches ($22 for 4 pairs) that had been in the refrigerator to help reduce any puffiness. You can also go old school and use cold spoons! One of my new faves Mallory Ervin recommended these Tarte patches. You may also remember that Lady Sonja Morgan from Real Housewives of New York dips her whole face in an ice bath to help with puffiness!

2. Moisturize: Last weekend I went to Unique LA and found Honey Belle Nourishing Organic Eye Creme ($18) and I’m obsessed!!! It has evening primrose oil which was traditionally used to treat bruises which helps relieve darkness, puffiness and inflammation. It also has white willow extract and neem seed oil which are antioxidants and jojoba and grapeseed oil to moisturize. This is so moisturizing I thought I’d only be able to use it at night, but it’s been working great under my concealer!

3. Color Correct: I apply Tarte Colored Clay CC Undereye Corrector in Light-Medium ($25) under my eyes, on my eyelids, and on any super red 🆘 parts of my face (usually around my nose). I generally apply this using my ring finger and then will blend out with my beautyblender (which BTW is a ride or die, can’t live without it tool for me).

Tip to avoid creasing: when placing the product under your eye, don’t start in the darkest spot/your tear duct because you want to make the thinnest layer possible of concealer to avoid creasing. I apply it down about an inch next to my nose and then blend the product up. This concealer is very Orange 🍊 which counteracts purple/blue undereye circles. A lot of beauty gurus have videos of them applying super light concealers under the eyes, but if you have dark circles you really need to color correct first or you’ll just make them look light grey 💀.

4. Foundation: This one is Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation in 4.5 ($64). This shade is slightly orange which again helps hide any discoloration (and don’t worry it’s not orange enough to make you an Oompa Loompa) while still being lightweight and more natural looking than heavy full-coverage foundations.

5. Highlighting: I go in with even more concealer under the eyes to brighten and highlight- this time I use the Tarte Shape Tape Contour Concealer in Fair Neutral ($25) and the hype is real y’all. I will say that as fair as I am, this shade is a little too light for me so I have to go easy on it. Check out my Foundation Routine for Oily Skin and How to Get Rid of Pores and skip to 3:48 to see how I apply foundation and concealer and how I set it with powder.

6. Set with Powder: Blend well with beauty blender, then dip already damp with concealer beautyblender into Ben Nye Luxury Powder in Cameo to set.

7. Nude Eyeliner: Apply a nude liner to your water line to get rid of redness. I like NYX Wonder Pencil in Light. This will help make your eyes 👀 look larger and more awake.
