Today I’ll be sharing a fantastic, full proof and cheap method of hiding your dark circles and at the same time brightening them up 🙂
IMBB is all about sharing innovative ideas on using makeup and skin care and thus continuing the legacy today I will show you all how can you use an orange cream eyeshadow as your under eye corrector. This trick works even for those who don’t have extreme dark circles but want to brighten up the area without using too many products. So lets get started.
Maybelline Color Tattoo in Fierce n Tangy is one such multi tasking product which is a boon for indian skin tones. Initially when it hit the market I am sure most of us went for the Bad To The Bronze and Pomegranate Punk which are more common and can be incoporated in day to day looks but Fierce n Tangy was quite an unusual shade and definitely more challenging to incorporate in our day to day eye looks.
But most of you don’t know that this can be used as under eye color corrector for those dark bluish under eyes! Yes you heard me right! I have extremely bad dark circles all thanks to heredity and late nights along with sitting infront of the computer made them even worse! Searching on internet I came across the concept of color corrector which help in cancelling out the darkness or pigmentation. For eg most of us indians have dark bluish undertones in dark circles and to cancel them out one needs a orange based corrector. Now its definitely not easy to find orange concealers in regular drugstore brands. MAC does have orange corrector and other famous ones are from Bobbi Brown, Laura Mercier and the famous Eve Pearl Salmon concealer!
So instead of investing in high end brands I decided to use my Maybelline Fierce n Tangy as color corrector and it works like a charm! So why Maybelline Color Tattoo you would ask? Simple these are the best cream eyeshadow’s I have come across! They are extremely long lasting, they wont crease or budge and the shade Fierce n Tangy has perfect amount of orange shade in it to cancel out darkness without making it look too orangey and this shade also has extremely fine shimmer which is not visible until unless you are using a microscope 😛 So this shimmer brighten’s up the under eye and makes it look flawless!
Enough said and raved, let’s start with a demo!
My dark circles without any makeup, i have just applied eye cream to keep the skin moisturized. Yes I have that bad dark circles 🙁
Apply maybelline color tattoo in Fierce n Tangy and you can see it already has cancelled darkness around my eyes.
Now apply your favorite concealer, I am using Colorbar’s Stick concealer in the shade 3.
This is how it will look, can you see the difference?
Set the under eye using a good setting powder, I usually use Ben Nye Banana Powder but here I was just used a compact.
Now how the difference between both the eyes 🙂
I hope this post was helpful to all who are looking for a good affordable color correctors, also you can use Fierce n tangy on pigmentation spots, I use it around my mouth where I do have quite a lot of dark shadows and this instantly brighten’s them!
If you don’t own color tattoo no worries try using an orange lipstick! just make sure it does not have chunky glitter 🙂
Until next time take care and stay beautiful!
