If you’re prone to dark undereye circles, you know that sometimes, even with the help of a trusty full-coverage concealer, these shadowy spots can be nearly impossible to camouflage. Because the skin under and around our eyes is much thinner than the rest of our face, it’s extra challenging to find a formula gentle and effective enough to conceal, correct, and stay put. Color correctors can work wonders on dark circles thanks to their darkness-canceling capabilities, but it’s important to find the right hue.
Peachy and orange-hued shades are generally best for counteracting the look of darkness and brightening up the entire region. Colors correctors work according to the principles of the color wheel, which posits that are opposite of one another on the color wheel can cancel the other out. Because blue and purple are on the opposite end of orange and peach on the color wheel, these two shades work to cancel the other one out. Ahead, we’ve lined up a few of our favorite (and affordable) color-correcting concealers to hide dark circles all day long.
