UNDER-EYE CORRECTION

One of the most reoccurring emails in our inbox is about covering dark circles. We’ve done two tutorials addressing it so far (revisit How to Cover Dark Circles and Daytime Concealer Trick for more), but today we’re tackling the darkest of dark circles with the help of the color correction!

Here’s how I cover blemishes in a way that you can even do on bare skin (like I did on our model in the top picture above). If you wear foundation, then do this technique after you first apply foundation all over.  (more…)
