Singh applies the concealer in a triangle near the outer corner of her eye, as well as next to her mouth, nostril and underneath her cheekbones. Using the beauty blender, she then blends the product out. To help with the exaggerated eye lift, Singh is also careful to only use upward motions when applying the product. The result is pretty remarkable and you don’t even need to read for powder, as you essentially want the natural highlight from the concealer to show off this area.
Of course, if makeup isn’t quite your thing, there may be some natural remedies or things you can look into when it comes to dark circles around your eyes. The most common causes are lack of sleep and genetics, but things like allergies, excessive alcohol consumption and ageing can also result in dark circles, while more serious conditions like anemia or iron deficiency may also be responsible. At home, things like a cold compress can help reduce swelling, while some even swear by applying cold tea bags to your eyes to improve their appearance.
Given the uncertainty that continues to surround our lives as a result of the global pandemic and the ever-changing restrictions that have seen us have to adapt and change, it goes without saying that anything that brings a little clarity and rest to our shellshocked expressions is a blessing. We’ll be sure to try this one out before the next office zoom call.
