It is a truth, universally accepted (amongst the makeup obsessed, that is), that there is nothing more loathsome than the dreaded DARK UNDEREYE CIRCLE, ... and that's why I'm going to share my banishing routine with you.

Step 1. So so sooooo important - Moisturise and apply your Primer.

Step 2. Now gently, with your ring finger, tap an orange corrector into the shadows under your eyes. Orange is going to balance out those awful blue/purple undertones.

Step 3. Gently dab your favourite foundation over your corrector, and rest of your face, with a stipple brush or beauty blender. It's REALLY important to dab on your foundation as brush strokes will displace your corrector.

Step 4. Now select a concealer a shade lighter than your skin tone. Draw a triangle under each eye, and blend it out with a beauty blender. This will banish any lingering shadow and highlight your under eye area.

Step 5. Finally lightly dust a translucent powder under your eyes, and over your T-zone to set your makeup.

Dark circles? What dark circles?! This method completely gets rid of them and keeps them gone all day.

So try it out and let me know if it worked for you. I promise, it's full proof!
