How can I hide my tired eyes?

When winter comes every woman has the same problem: tired eyes. Days are short, it’s cold, the night falls early and your eyes are hooped by dark circles or bags. Our makeup Artist Virginie Rivière shares some of her tips with us.

"I remember the first time I woke up with big bags under my eyes, I was 15 years old I guess and I tried to hide my circles & bags with a homemade remedy: a piece of cotton soaked in milk that I put in the freezer for a few minutes.

The result? In fact nothing, I did not see my bags lose their volume and my skin turned red because of the cold.

Once I became a makeup artist, I had all the tips & tricks to hide them: applying a concealer being one of them. If I could have known that when I was a teen it would have helped! (But few years later it’s not so complicate. 

For an immediate effect, you need to apply the right shade of concealer, one shade below your skin tone and to neutralize the blue of the circles just apply a little touch of orange (with the MAKE UP FOR EVER camouflage pot) that you blend with the concealer or that you apply before. But mind to choose a light texture and not to apply too much. The concealer has to be clearer than the foundation to bring light and hide the shadows.

Another tip: apply lipstick in order to focus ones attention on your lips rather than your eyes."
