The results are instant and you can still wear your beloved dark eyeliner on the top of your eyes.
Use A Concealer
Concealer is a bright eyes best friend! While most of us use some form of concealer under our eyes as part of our makeup routine, it’s important that you’re choosing the right one in the right tones
You’ll want to choose a concealer that is heavy with pink or yellow undertones will actually help cover dark circles and brighten the color of the whole under eye area. You only need a small amount but make sure you blend it well with a small beauty blender or just your ring or middle finger. Be sure to stay away from heavy coverage as it can backfire and make your concealer look cakey and dull.
Highlighters are having a moment right now with the current trend of fresh, dewy skin but they can actually do wonders to improve the look of your eyes.
Knowing where to apply your highlighter is especially important when it comes to accentuating the eyes. Make sure to only apply it in 3 strategic places, your cheekbone, in the corners of your eyes and along the brow line. Avoid using it elsewhere to draw attention away from your eye area. Always start with a smaller amount so you don’t end up looking shiny (it’s easier to add more than to remove some). The highlighter will catch the light and provide a shimmer to brighten up your entire eye area!
