Everything You Need to Know About Eye Creams

You must first understand the true cause of dark circles, and you must ask yourself this question. What is the cause of dark circles under the eyes?

The skin around your eyes is thinner than the rest of your face, dark circles are caused by a combination of excess pigment and visible veins. As we age, we lose even more volume under our eyes, resulting in what is known as a "trough' which is why most of us have dark circles under our eyes.

Keep in mind that colors opposite each other on the color wheel can cancel each other out. I know I'm going back to basics, but this will really help you.

Here are two recommendations that will help you in choosing your foundation:

1. Dry skin: Consider using a foundation with a light finish. Like a creamy and light foundation. This type of mixture conceals flaws and gives your skin a healthy glow.

2. Oily skin: Opt for a foundation with a matte finish. It's the best option for you because the formula controls excess oil, revealing a smooth and clear complexion that lasts.

Step # 5 The last step 

Yay, we've arrived at the final step. When you're finished with your makeup. It's time to seal the deal. After all, you don't want your efforts to go to waste. Spray and mist over your face in an 'X' and "T" motion, and you're good to go.
