Camouflaging Circles.

Under eye circles are second only to finding the right base shade in terms of cosmetic challenges. And it isn’t only women. Men are just as distressed about them. To cover circles the most effectively, you first have to decide what the color of the circle is.

Circles are caused by a number of different factors – hyperpigmentation (this can be brown or grey depending on your hereditary), allergies (grey, blue, purple), toxins (grey, blue), lack of sleep (grey), or skin thinning (usually purple/red - the color of the capillaries that show through the skin.) Circles can even be shadows from a slipped fat pad. There isn’t much that a concealer can do about that!

Once you’ve determined the color then you’re ready to try the right color. Yellow generally conceals red and purple. Peach is very effective on brown, grey, and blue. Try our Circle\Delete #1 for yellow and #2 for peach.

Thanks for the information. I've had problems in the past with the circle delete creasing. Do you have any special techniques to keep this from creasing? Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks again!
