Frequently Asked Questions
What concealer is best for dark circles?
When it comes to masking dark circles it's all about undertones. "Dark circles typically have purple-ish undertones so using color theory, the color orange neutralizes purple effortlessly," makeup artist Alana Wright says. "Using a concealer with a peachy undertone (a derivative of orange) and a slightly brighter shade than your complexion is best. If one has more redness around the eyes, then use golden olive undertone concealer to neutralize (green neutralizes red)."
What concealer is best for mature skin?
The creamier the concealer the better for mature skin. A creamy concealer helps mature skin look healthy, smooth, and hydrated. "I would recommend avoiding the use of any product that dries down around fine lines. It will make the skin look crepe-ish," Wright adds.
Should you go lighter or darker with concealer for under-eye circles?
Going lighter for under-eye concealer depends on one’s preference. The key is neutralizing the color of the natural darkness first before going brighter. "That could involve using a color corrector underneath a concealer that matches the rest of the face or using a peachier neutral shade close to the face complexion for a 2-in-1 effect. I would avoid going darker on concealer around the eyes altogether," Wright explains.
