3 Easy Steps To Banish Under Eye Circles With An Orange Corrector

I Bought It

By Sheila Arkee

Although the quality of the BH Cosmetics 6 Color Concealer & Corrector palette in Medium left me feeling lukewarm, I really appreciate the fact that it includes an orange corrector which is a must have for anyone who needs some extra help with under eye circles.

Under eye circles are a fact of life. Genetics, your health, and other factors contribute to the intensity of the darkness people have to deal with. In general I recommend using a pink-toned concealer for knocking out under eye circles, but for extreme cases of discoloration, using an orange or red color before your regular concealer helps to even the playing field. As a makeup artist, I have even used orange and red lipstick for this same purpose. And it works wonders!

Here’s a quick and easy 3 step demonstration of how to use an orange corrector. On one eye I used NYX HD Concealer in Medium on its own, and on the other eye I layered a bit of the orange corrector underneath the NYX Concealer.

Here are my eye before:

    I have one eye that has a darker circle under it than the other eye. Just using concealer doesn’t seem to even them up – maybe I need to try something like this under the dark one. under my concealer.
