Choose your concealer according to the color of your dark circles
Before choosing the color of its concealer, it is necessary to define the color of its dark circles. They(because yes, we say "one" rings and not "one" circles ;))vary according to many factors. Indeed, fatigue, poor blood circulation, stress, hormonal changes or allergies can affect dark circles. They are present in different shades: black to brown, bluish to greenish or red to purplish. In order to cover as much as possible the signs of fatigue, your concealer must be very close to your skin torment. The eye area tends to be lighter than the rest of your face, so it's best to choose a lighter shade than your complexion.
🌱 Black to brown dark circles
Black to brown dark circles are the most difficult to camouflage. Indeed, they are very pigmented and can sometimes ruin your life. To hide them, it is enough to use an anti dark circle based on orange pigments that are found in the subtones of ivories, beiges or peaches. After having faded it well, you can say goodbye to your dark circles!
🌱 Bluish to Greenish Dark circles
For bluish or greenish dark circles, lean towards correctors containing red and pinkish pigments. These pigments will reduce the signs of fatigue by neutralizing this blue and cold effect. If you don't have concealers on hand after a long hectic night, don't panic! You can use a red lipstick (yes, yes, you heard right)that will be perfect for camouflaging your dark circles.
🌱 Purplish to Red Dark circles
Purplish to red dark circles can be attenuated using yellow pigments. These pigments are present in the lightest shades. They will neutralize the purple/red effect of your dark circles in the blink of an eye. By applying the right concealer, you can say goodbye to the signs of fatigue!
Choose your concealer according to its carnation
After identifying the color of your dark circles, you must absolutely identify your carnation. A concealer that is far too light or too dark can quickly become a"makeup faux pas". We recommend that you choose a shade slightly lighter than that of your skin color in order to achieve the most natural rendering possible.an>
1️ ⃣ Light skin
If you have sun-sensitive skin and blush easily,you have fair skin. Opt for pale shades that will blend more easily into your makeup. These nuances will allow you to hide your signs of fatigue while illuminating your gaze. At Charlotte Bio, for example, our concealers suitable for light skin are ivory and Nudeshades. They make it possible to camouflage dark circles for a fresh and natural rendering.
