How to conceal dark under eyes

Your rating: None
Having dark circles is a problem for many individuals and while makeup is not a solution it can conceal any dark circles making you look fresh and wide awake.
What you'll need: 
Concealer brush
Salmon toned concealer
Translucent powder
Small fluffy brush
Using the concealer brush, dip it into the salmon toned concealer. This is a colour correcter and will hide any blue or purple undereyes. If you have very red undereyes use a green concealer. Apply the concealer in a 'v' shape motion underneath your eyes and also in the inner and outer corner of your eyes.
Using your ring finger, which is the gentlest, dab the concealer into your skin. This will melt the concealer and allow it to conceal your undereyes.
Using the concealer brush do the same with your regular concealer, preferably a shade or two lighter than your skin colour and apply this in the same way.
Blend using your ring finger.
Dip the small fluffy brush into the translucent powder and apply underneath your eyes to set it.
