Bye-Bye Under-Eye Bags

Hello my lovelies!

It’s been a while but what’s new? I’m constantly telling myself I need to keep up with the blog more often but it always falls through. This is only because I’m getting involved with so many other activities I almost cannot keep up. I’ve said it time and time again but I promise, I will be better at updating my blog at least once a week from now on. Have you all heard the news? I finally started up my very own YouTube channel!! Go check out my channel here and be sure to subscribe! I would love to hear what you all think and please don’t hesitate to leave some constructive criticism in the comments! I have so much room to improve and day-by-day I’m slowly learning more about the YouTube Beauty community. It’s most definitely a learning process but I’m so excited and eager to learn more.

Anyways, let’s get right into today’s post-How to Conceal Dark Under-Eye Bags. I know a lot of Indian women struggle with this and I’m sorry to say, it’s genetics. There isn’t much you can do to lighten up the dark bags under your eyes, which is so unfortunate for many of us. I recently got some e-mails and messages from girls who want advice on how I conceal my bags and brighten my under-eye area. I must say, I CAKE on the concealers and highlighters (it’s almost disgusting) but what can I say, I’m in love with a bright under-eye. Always have been and always will be. Concealing your dark circles is something that will instantly lift your face; make you look rejuvenated and refreshed. Who doesn’t want that?!

The trick is to color correct. You HAVE to know the art behind your skin, yes, makeup is all about art. I have cooler undertones and have purple/bluish bags. Take a look at the color wheel and you will see that reds, oranges and anything in between those two colors will help counteract those dreaded purple/blue circles. I typically don’t buy color correctors but you are more than welcome to. This easy peasy trick was first created by a fellow Indian blogger and makeup guru, Deepica Mutyala, who in fact blew social media up with the red lipstick trick.

Now, if you are lighter skin toned that I am, don’t use red. I repeat, DO NOT use red. The red lipstick will be too harsh on your skin and will show through your foundation and concealer. Get to know your skin and stick to lavenders, greens and yellows.

It’s best to color correct first with a super thin layer. Be sure to work with a little at a time and build up if necessary. After color correcting, I would recommend applying your foundation THEN highlight. In my video I went about this differently then had to apply way more product than necessary.

    1. Thank you, Mrs. Yajnik! I’m happy you like them. When did Doreen subscribe? I haven’t posted in weeks because I’ve been jumping into other things but I’m going to start back up again. Either way I will try to add her myself, if that’s even possible. I will let you know! Tell her I said “Hi” next time you talk to her AND that I finally took her advice to get into YouTube! 🙂

Leave some love!
