Position your mirror for the best possible light—natural light is preferred—and lean forward for the best view of your circles.
Prep the skin under your eyes by applying the eye cream or moisturizer. This does not mean a shimmery cream or reflective moisturizer—that would draw attention to what you're trying to hide.
If you use foundation, apply it now.
With a brush or your finger, apply concealer one to two shades lighter than your skin tone to the darkest area. Don't go too light—that could create a reverse-raccoon look!
Blend by gently tapping, not sweeping, the concealer. Stop short of your lower lash line, and blend past the dark area.
Apply a light dusting of translucent powder over the concealer to lock in your look.
