Erase those dark circles!!

Banish them to the depths of.. corrector!!!
Isn’t that a nice dramatic start.
Well, dark circles deserve it.
You know the feeling, I know you do. Waking up in the morning thinking you slept 3 hours when actually it’s been 8.
Well they’ve been ransacking the house right next to me for the past week, leaving nothing but the structure itself. So drills, music, yelling, the whole shebang.
I haven’t exactly been counting sheep peacefully.
I find the best way to tell someone’s a wreck is by looking at their eyes & skin.
The blue/purple discoloration on my inner corners, and the red marks on my outer corners are a dead giveaway:

However I use only two steps to conceal them!

Step 1: cream concealer on the outer corner

Cream concealers really pack a punch, they cover up really well and stay put. Which is needed for the outer corner!
If the red is really bad, try a green cream concealer.
I like to apply some with my finger to warm up the product.

Step 2: peach tone concealer on the inner corner

Emphasis on the peach! Looking at the color wheel, the way to counteract blue/purple is with orange/peach!
For that purpose I apply the DA Concealer Pen, from a Dutch drugstore brand.
I like to keep the concealer confined to my inner corner, in a triangle, like so:
Just tap tap it in.
And theeeeen…
All gone! :D
