Whether your sleep pattern includes too much scrolling, or you’ve inherited some shadows from your parents, sometimes we all need a bit of extra help to look a little more fresh-faced.
So if you want to know how to hide dark circles and bags, try this simple routine using foundation, concealer, and powder.
Step 1: Foundation
To nix the luggage that’s landed under your eyes, you need to choose a foundation that’ll cancel out the shade. You could try a stick foundation or a full coverage powder formula. Whatever you choose, a lot of it comes down to technique.
One of the most common questions we get: do you put concealer on before or after foundation? Though there’s no hard and fast rule, the best way to put on foundation and concealer is often foundation-first.
Why exactly does concealer go on before foundation? When you apply a pigmented foundation first that cancels out your tired shadows, you might be able to cut back on the concealer. As you may have learned on your own, concealer can look cakey under eyes.
So, if you can stick to foundation alone, you could be on to a winner. A full coverage mineral foundation can prevent a thick, cakey look.
