FAN MAIL FRIDAYS: Concealing Dark Eyebags Completely
"Always look forward to something better."
Sharing my mantra for today with everyone! To end your week on a beautiful note, here's a great question from Noelle:
I don't know a thing about makeup, but I want to cover my dark, big eye bags. What should I use? Like, should I use concealer, correctors, foundation or CC Creams to cover it? And how should I apply? Like, should I use this one or that? Help please. I'm looking forward to hearing from you again.

Concealing dark eye bags effectively is doable given the range of good makeups that are available to us, but you still have to sleep early, use eye cream, and drink lots of water to prevent them from getting worse and to simplify your makeup routine. However, there are women who are predisposed genetically to dark circles and eye bags, and if you're one of them, click READ MORE and I'll show you a quick guide in concealing dark eye bags like a pro.
- If you have really dark circles that are somewhat brownish or a tad bit purplish, use a salmon or peach- toned concealer to neutralize the discoloration.
- In some cases, others can get away with just a concealer, but this depends on two factors 1.) Concealer has really good coverage and pigmentation 2.) Discoloration is not that grave. If you're positive on these two factors, you can skip the corrector and go straight to concealing.

- It's best to neutralize your corrector and concealer with a foundation/CC Cream/BB Cream to avoid getting chalky- looking under eyes-we've all seen this on the red carpet and it doesn't look sexy! Uniform skin tone is sexy that's why it's important to apply your preferred (and shade- matching) liquid base on top of your under eye makeup products, but just apply a sheer amount so you won't dilute the coverage of the previous products or worse, darken your under eyes.
NIFTY TRICK: HIGHLIGHT
- Sometimes, when my skin is not cooperating and my makeup products don't adhere to my skin like how they're supposed to, I grab a sheer highlighter and apply a layer on my under eyes. It gives me bright, lifted- looking eyes in an instant and in some cases, I still use it even if my makeup looks good just because I want to give my eyes that extra "lift". Remember to not overdo it though. Otherwise, you'll end up with weird- looking, glimmering under eyes!
Hope you all liked this tip! Stay gorgeous, everyone! :)
