You Won't Believe This Crazy Trick to Get Rid of Dark Circles

We've tried a lot of things to get rid of our dark circlestargeted eye masks and power serums to name a few. But putting bright red-orange lipstick under our eyes?! It's a trick our Senior Manager of Brand Development Deepica Mutyala swears byand we wouldn't believe it unless we saw with our own, er, you know. Bright red works on Deepica's skin tone, neutralizing darkness and minimizing the appearance of circles, because she has green undertones under her eyes. If you have similar coloring, we recommend using Beauty Is Life Hot Red Lipstick and the Birchbox Eye Blender Brush to apply it. Put your concealer directly over and proceed with your regular makeup routine from there. For lighter skin, try Temptu's S/B Neutralizer Wheel, which has a shade for everythingpink brightens sallow undertones, peach covers up hyperpigmentation, yellow hides dark under eye circles, and purple corrects yellow and sallow undertones.
