Dark circles are such a common problem, and so few products exist that will actually eliminate them. The ones that do exist can cost an arm and a leg, which is why the Internet went into a bit of a frenzy when beauty vlogger Deepica Mutyala came up with an unbelievably easy solution to the common under-eye problem.
It’s simple. The video above shows you exactly how to do it. All it takes to shed dark circles is one tube of bright red or orange lipstick (to “even out the dark circles and neutralize your face”) and concealer.
Taking a makeup brush, dab your lipstick and paint the colour around your eyes. After you’re done, you will look like a raccoon, but that’s exactly what you want. Once you’re done with the red or orange (play around with what you have, since Deepica says she’s used so many different kinds), apply concealer to your face like you would as part of your normal makeup routine.
The concealer masks the lipstick and covers dark circles, creating a matte face and an under-eye that doesn’t look saggy or tired.
And guess what, this works for any cosmetic issue with irregular dark spots on your skin. Got a birthmark you want to hide, or a weird spot on your cheek? Lipstick and concealer will mask that as well. It’s dead simple and cheap.
