If you have dark under-eye circles, you may be wondering how to make them look less prominent. Dark under-eye circles can be caused by a number of factors including your age, a lack of sleep, health issues, vitamin deficiencies and hyperpigmentation. Finding the perfect concealer to use on the delicate skin underneath and around your eyes is essential if you want to create the illusion of a perfect night's sleep and transform your eyes to appear brighter and more wide awake.
To effectively disguise dark circles, you need your under-eye concealer to be lightweight in its consistency. When a concealer is too heavy and thick, this can accentuate the uneven texture of the skin under your eyes and can even draw attention to any fine lines and wrinkles you may also have around the eye area.
To help you find the perfect smoothing and brightening under-eye concealer that will boost your confidence, we have curated a list of the best concealers that help to banish dark circles.
