A clear look: how to get rid of circles and bags under the eyes
Are you upset by the reflection in the mirror in the morning? We know how to quickly get rid of dark circles and bags under the eyes. Start your day with good habits and try new makeup tricks.
To get started, let's figure out what causes circles and bags under the eyes. The skin in the eye area is very thin and sensitive, so the blood capillaries can shine through and create the effect of dark circles. Such a problem can be both inherited and acquired.
How to check? Press your finger lightly on the dark area around the eyes: if the circles turn white, then you can get rid of them by improving blood circulation in a healthy lifestyle (good sleep, physical activity, walking in the fresh air) and special cosmetics for the eye area (with coffee extract, vitamin C) . If the circles have remained dark, then you can hide the translucent capillaries only with decorative cosmetics.
Edema and bags under the eyes can be caused by a variety of reasons: from water retention in the body to serious diseases, such as kidney disease. In healthy people, edema usually appears in the morning for several hours and disappears after eliminating the causes of circles under the eyes of women: excessive salt intake, lack of sleep, eye strain, inappropriate cosmetics.
With age, another problem arises: a change in the fat layer under the eyes leads to the formation of a hernia. It is very difficult to get rid of such bags: massage and control of body weight help, and in difficult situations - only surgery.
How to prevent bags and circles under the eyes at home?
1. Start your morning with a cold compress.
The popular prescription is approved by doctors: cool tea bags and put on eyes for 5-10 minutes. Such a compress narrows blood vessels and tones the skin, so circles and swelling will become less noticeable.
2. Keep eye cream in the refrigerator.
If there is no time for a compress, then a chilled eye cream will also help reduce blood vessels and have a light lifting effect.
3. Drink more water and avoid alcohol and coffee.
Alcohol and caffeine can dilate blood vessels, making dark circles more visible. Also, with a lack of clean water, the body begins to hold it, which leads to unnecessary edema. Make a habit of replacing unpleasant drinks throughout the day with clean water, but do not drink a lot at night.
4. Try mask patches for the eye area.
Patches under the eyes are very convenient: you can stick them in the morning while doing makeup or in the evening to relieve fatigue after a working day. Patches are tight to the skin and do not interfere with their own affairs, but in 15−20 minutes they pleasantly cool, soothe and refresh the skin in the eye area.
What makeup tricks will hide circles and bags under the eyes?
1. Choose the right concealer.
To hide circles under the eyes, choose a concealer not to match your skin, but with a noticeable yellow, peach or even orange tint. Do not worry: according to the principle of color correction, it is precisely the opposite colors of the spectrum that best neutralize the blue and eventually merge with the complexion.
2. Mask the bruises with red lipstick.
If strong pigmentation is worried around the eyes, then makeup artists are advised to take extreme measures: apply a thin layer of red lipstick on dark circles, and then blend over the concealer. The red pigment is able to neutralize any darkening, and the concealer of the shade of your skin will not let anyone guess about the lipstick on the face.
3. Apply the concealer correctly.
Try a new way of masking circles: apply the concealer not with dots under the eyes, as they used to, but in the form of a wide triangle from the lower eyelid to the middle of the cheek. Do not forget to shade thoroughly. This technique highlights the area under the eyes better and generally makes the face more fresh.
4. Do not try to hide bags with makeup.
If bruises can be masked by a concealer, then bags are a voluminous formation that cosmetics will not hide. How to be Remember that reflective concealers only emphasize the volume of the bags, so choose matte textures. Do not apply the concealer on the bag itself, but only along its contour, where it casts shadows.
