I swallowed my fear and vowed to practice until I felt comfortable about blending concealers over colour corrective ones. It's tricky stuff and not something we were really taught at college, we were taught the theory but it wasn't until I left and tried it that I realised that it's actually really difficult to nail and I wish we had practised it more. So which dark circle has been colour corrected, right or left?
So I'll put you out of your misery, the one on the left is the one which looks better concealed under the eye. There is a much reduced shadow unlike the right hand side where I have not used any colour correction and just applied a fairly thick and creamy concealer by Alva Coleur* I didn't think this concealer would suit my skin tone as the foundations were a bit too light, however I am very pleased with the creamy consistency. When using this concealer, it is very creamy so use a finely milled powder to set it and do it quickly before it bleeds in to fine lines.
If you'd like a video tutorial about colour correction for dark circles, let me know by leaving a comment below... I am happy to make a video about it as if you suffer from very dark circles and want a good method of concealing, this might be for you.
