How to Choose Concealer Shade for Dark Circles
Concealer is a not-so-secret weapon for helping to diminish the appearance of dark circles. With Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer, the hyaluronic acid-enriched formula hydrates tired under-eyes to help them seem smoother and brighter.
The medium-buildable, hydrating concealer can provide the eye area enough coverage that dark circles are less apparent, but in more deep-set cases, the key is to choose a lighter concealer shade that combats the blue/grey pigments that make eyes seem sunken and dulled. Apply Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer under the eyes for a brighter, lifted appearance.

Colour-Correcting Dark Circles with Concealer
Colour-correction is based on colour theory and is used in makeup to even out skin pigmentation. It’s particularly popular for beard coverage, but it works wonders for tired eyes and dark circles.
When choosing concealer shades for dark circles, look for pink or peach-toned concealers that work for your skin tone. These undertones will help to neutralise the appearance of darkness, lessening the prominence of dark circles and leaving your eye area looking brighter and more awake.
Charlotte recommends her Magic Vanish Under-Eye and Face Colour Corrector, a pigmented colour corrector that comes in expertly neutralising peach, orange and red shades for all skin tones.
Apply your colour-correcting shade directly onto dark circles and blend it out, concentrating the product in the darkened areas. Then, add a shade that matches or is 1 shade lighter than your skin tone over the top for a flawless-looking finish. For a full-coverage finish, choose Magic Away, or if you prefer a hydrating, medium-coverage formula, use Charlotte’s Beautiful Skin Radiant Concealer!
