Dark circles, you are the bane of my existence. The skin around the eyes is naturally super thin and fragile—this you likely already know—which, for some, means a web of blue-purple veins underneath, especially when those blood vessels expand (like after a night of poor sleep). For others, more melanin production can cause skin in the area to become darker, resulting in discolored half-moons.
Different causes, of course, require different topical skin care solutions (caffeine to help constrict dilated blood vessels; antioxidants or arbutin to brighten up a shadowed area), but here's the thing about makeup: No matter the type of dark circles you have, the right swipe of concealer can nix the discoloration—at least for the day.
