How to get rid of dark circles under your eyes

1. After applying foundation, dab corrector two or three times under each eye. With a sponge or brush, use a light stamping motion to gently blend corrector from the inner corner of the eye (often the most deeply pigmented spot) to the outer corner.

2. Again in a stamping motion, blend your favourite concealer under both eyes, making sure to hide your corrector.

3. Finish by dipping your brush or sponge into translucent powder and gently patting under eyes to set for the day.

Make sure you're using the right colour corrector for your skin tone. Here's how to find your shade:
