Makeup Tutorial For Dark Circles – Jetlag Hack Makeup

Posted by


hi my name is Melissa van Dijk and I’m a
professional makeup artist and for today’s video I’m going to show you how
you can cover up your dark circles so this is not a perfect time where I can
film it and it’s also the first video I’m going to film because I moved from
Luxembourg in Europe to Australia so this is the perfect time where you can
have some dark circles like I do and this is also why I’m going to film it
right now and I’m going to show you now two different techniques and I’m also
going to tell you what I personally like the best and this might also be a good
opportunity for yourself so that you know what will work for you so now let’s
get right into the video so when it comes to dark circles it’s mostly like a
little bit of a pigmentation under your eyes and this can also be like slightly
blue to green but it also can be a little bit more like greyish blackish so
there are two different types and mostly if you have like the darkest type
there’s also some blue inside so this is why I’m going to recommend you covering
it up with an orange concealer but you might have already seen on Instagram and
on the other social media platforms that they are also using some red lipstick so
I’m going to show you now if this will work or if this is just terrible and how
I would do it so I’m going to show you now what they are doing on social media
and what I would suggest to you which might be a little bit easier so I have
now two different products actually a few more but two different main products
in front of me one is the concealer where you can see the orange in it and
this will be also covering up some dark circles and the others like they are
using on social media are red lipsticks so I have now three different red
lipsticks and I will just test out which is little bit stiffer because when it’s
too creamy you just will smear it around believe me I just made the experience
yesterday so I’m just going to test out which might will work and if not you
will see it by yourself if it works or not and I’m just going to show you now
the normal steps what I would do on how you
can cover up your dark circles so I’m not going to do something special or no
one side on the other side only thing which I’m going to change is the first
product and then the other steps will all be the same so this is now what I’m
going to do in this video and now let’s start with my technique so when it comes
to my technique which I would also recommend to you is I’m going to choose
a concealer with an orangy undertone and I’m not going to use a full-on orange
concealer or color and in the consistency of a concealer because then
it’s a little bit difficult to cover up so that’s why I would suggest you to
take an skintone type concealer with just a hint of an orange in it because
then it’s the easiest to cover up and if you just imagine your color wheel which
you can get at the painter shop or online just google it it calls color
wheel then you will see that orange and blue are the opposite colors which means
that if you have any blueness under your eye, oragne just will neutralize it and then later on you can put your foundation on
top and your blueness is gone so this is what I’m going to do and I’m going to
take a normal concealer brush a little bit of this orange concealer and I’m
going to place it right underneath I’m not going to use it too much because it
just need a little of it and most people have it in the inner corner right in the
inner corner this is where the most blueness just
will be this is also because of your vens and then it can go down or also
on top of your eye so just apply it as you prefer it and as you will see the
blueness and darkness around your eyes so I’m just going to take a concealer
and a little bit of sorry and I’m just going to take the brush a little bit of
concealer and apply it right underneath so I’m just going to apply it right here
where I can see some darkness and also blueness and I’m not using too much so
this is also an orangey concealer so you might think wow that’s too much but I’m
really using just a little but it’s just because you see it in a different color
like an orange concealer isn’t a usual concealer shade so this is why I’m going
apply it very little on my eyes and I’m not going to swipe it too much
I’m not dabbing on it so that it will melt in with my skin so and now you can
already see that the blueness is a little bit less visible because orange
and blue just neutralize each other and now we can just move on to the next step
so for the next step just use a fluffy face brush or like an highlighting brush
and a little bit of translucent powder and just place this on top of your
orange concealer so that this will set the concealer and it won’t move around
when you are applying your foundation on so I’m just going to dip in the powder
just a tiny bit and then I’m going to set it so that it won’t crease and also
won’t move while I’m applying foundation and a normal concealer on top so this is now the first base which I
would do now to cover up my I like my under eye and the end of my eye my under
eye area if you have any dark circles and now we can move on to the other side
how I saw it on social media and I’m interesting to see if this works or not
because I’m not 100% sure if this is a good idea if you’re doing it or not so
we will see how this goes so let’s move on to this side so here you can see in
order three red lipsticks which I have and these are also a little bit
different like their different brands and also different a little bit
in consistency and how they’re like some of them are really creamy and some of
them are a little bit more stiff so the one I have tried was this one right here
and this one is from Maybelline it’s the baby one and I won’t use this one at all
if you’re going to cover up your dark circles because you just will mess
around with your with the rest of your foundation because it’s so creamy that
it just won’t stick to your eye area so this will be already gone now I have
these two and I’ve just might from the consistency I’m going for the nyx one
because this one is a little bit stiffer and as you can imagine that this pot
right here which I have used on the other side these concealers are stiffer
they are still cream concealers but they are very stiff in consistency so this is
why they are sticking to the place where you just have applied it and if you’re
setting it with some powder it just will stay all day long at that place and it
won’t move around so with the lipstick they are normally creamy and they aren’t
that dry on your lips because if you’re using a cream lipstick it just won’t dry
down as a liquid lipstick and it also won’t like stay on your lips all day
long because it will move around since it’s a creamy consistency and it’s also
maybe a lipstick format of creamy consistency so I’m not sure if this is a
good idea to put it under your eyes but we will see so I’m going to take this
one right here and I’m going to place it underneath my
eye and I’m also using a concealer brush to spread it out a little bit as I did
on the other side so just a quick info before I’m going to apply it on my
the people who are applying some red lipstick under their eyes because they
want to cover up the darkness this might be the reason because they are primary
colors so blue yellow and red are primary colors and if you have blueness then they will cover it up with redness because then it will neutralize
but the problem is it’s such a strong color I’m not sure if this will be that
easy to cover up or you have to use a lot of product and I’m not that type of
person that likes to just have a cake foundation on my face like a mask I’m
more like the natural type of person that likes to apply it just a tiny bit
of foundation so it just depends on your preference that’s what I want to point
it out and because blue yellow and red are the primary colors then later on the
secondary colors are like green orange and purple because if you’re mixing like
red and yellow together you look at orange and so on this is why I have used
orange on this side because it’s easier to cover up so we will see now with the
lipstick if this will cover up as easy as I think well I’m not so concerned
that it will come up that easy but let’s see what it will take and normally on
the videos you will see that they are covering it up with some foundation and
your blueness is gone but you do not really see how much they are applying of
foundation so we will see how much I will need on this side and how much I
will need on this side so let’s find it out so I’m just going to apply the red
lipstick right in the inner corner and underneath and as you can see the color
is such a strong color and you might already think that you couldn’t cover it
up because the color is such a strong color but we will see I’m going now to
blend it out and I’m also going to use dabbing motion so I’m not going to swipe
it around a lot I’m just dabbing it that it will melt in with my skin so now I just have applied this one on
the other side and now we can move on to the next step and this is also to add
some translucent powder on top to set everything so now I’m going to repeat
the step which I have done on the other side so I’m just going to set the
lipstick that this won’t move when I’m applying the foundation and for some reason I think that this
looks like someone has punched me in the face so it isn’t that cute and it looks
horrible and as you can see because if you’re mixing red and blue it will get
purple and as you can see my bluenuess right here has turned in some purple so
I’m not concerned if this will work like be the best way as you can cover up your
dark circles I personally from what I see right now still like this like that
while this side is still the best one so we would see now later on when I have
applied my foundation how this will look like so now I’m going to apply my
foundation at first on this side and then later on on the other side so that
you can see the difference so I have my Beauty Blender right here and I’m just
going to dab it on top and I’m just going to do my normal routine so I’m not
that type of person that likes a full coverage foundation I’m with a natural
type of person so it’s totally what you prefer then you might also will go with
this side but I’m not a fan of applying a lot of foundation because I just think
that this feels uncomfortable on my skin so I’m just going to do my normal
routine and half of my face I’m just keeping my eye area now like I’m not
going to apply it yet I just like to finish off the rest of my face so now
let’s go closer to my eyes so I’m going to use the pointy side and as you can
see it’s already like a similar color to my foundation so it won’t need that much
to cover up and I’m also going to apply it on top of
my eye because I just want to get an even canvas and if you have a lot of
bluenes on top of your eye then you also could use the orange concealer
so now along my nose the inner corner I’m just going to spread out the rest
which is on my Beauty Blender to get an even finish so I haven’t used that
much of foundation because they still can see some of my pimples and like this
little scar right here and so on so I haven’t used that much of foundation and
it still just met in with my foundation and I haven’t yet applied a normal like
skin tone concealer so I already like this side a lot sorry my hair is a mess
and now I’m just going to apply it on the other side and we will see how much
product I will need on that side so I’m just going to repeat the same and now I
can go closer to the eye so I’m going to take a little bit of foundation on the
tip of my sponge I’m just going to and we will see how much I will need of
it okay so just what’s now a little bit and you still can see it so this is
just a little bit I’m not done yet I’m just going to finish it up because I
just like that my both sides will look the same so I do not want any redness
around this eye so I’m just going to cover it up as much as I can and also
feel comfortable with so I’m just using a normal foundation like it isn’t the
full coverage foundation it just gives me a natural like finish it’s medium
coverage and this is what I meant from before you still can’t see this red area
right here so now it looks even worse than someone has punched me in the face
so you still can’t see this red area and I personally think that I’m not sure
that the lipstick has moved around a little bit like further towards the
outer corner I’m not sure this is just what I personally think right now when
I’m looking into the mirror but I just might need to use a little bit more
foundation so I’m not going to like just mess around this is just how I feel
about this technique and what some people are doing like with the lipstick
I’m not sure I mean if you’re a person that likes a full coverage foundation that you like to put concealer over your
whole face then this might be the way you could go but if you prefer to keep
it casual and just a little bit of foundation to cover up any pimples and
so on then this might be the wrong technique for you I’m not going to say
that it’s not working I’m just going to say that you need a lot of products
because it’s still well I mean I still can see it so I’m not going to apply
more foundation now we can move on to the next step which is applying like a
natural tones concealer which is a little bit lighter
but it hasn’t like it’s the neutral tone tone it hasn’t any orange or yellowish
undertone to it it’s just a normal concealer but I’m just going to pop this
right underneath my eye to see if this will also cover up the redness so now
I’m going to take the normal concealer which I would use to just apply it
underneath my eyes I’m using also a new Beauty Blender because I just do not
like to use any redness which is on this sponge on the other side because this
one is really clean and I just like this side the most so I’m just going to apply
it as I would so it’s a little bit lighter to brighten up your eye but
still it has a natural skin tone so I’m just going to dab it into the skin also
so I like to go over my eye a little bit so that I have an even kind of us and
that my eyes look awake so this is now this side done and I will like it I mean
it looks natural and it looks like an awake look so now I like to go on the
other side and we will see if the concealer can cover it up because
normally concealers are thicker and have also a better like coverage
I might work with this one so I’m just going to use my Beauty Blender can you see this but I think the
lipstick has moved around like I’m red on this side right here like just right
underneath I personally can see in the mirror that there’s like a line that it
has moved around whereas on this side it’s clean
there’s no red line I mean I have some pimples but there’s no red line and it
still isn’t orange on this side so I’m not sure how I should feel about the
lipstick technique like the red lipstick technique I just think that this is a
color which is definitely not close enough to your skin tone that you can just
cover it up with your normal like daily makeup application I mean if you would
go out and you have a special event or something like that where you just apply
a lot of makeup then this much will work for you but still I mean I’m read around
this area right here I’m not sure if you can see it in a camera but I can
definitely tell you that the line stops right here from the lipstick so and now
I have used a clean Beauty Blender so I just have changed it to a new one and I
just might also write here to see if I can get a natural base maybe this will disappear so now the redness is covered up like
not fully fully covered up but still I have used a lot more product on that
side than on my preference side so I hope that you can see that this one is a
little bit more like rosy reddish and this side is like my normal skin tone
type and I still like this one the most so we will see now we can move on to the
last step which is just set everything with some powder because we don’t want
to that it will crease so I’m going to set my top part of my eye and the lower
part of my eye with some powder so that I’m sure that it won’t crease and it is
all well and it it will stay all day long so let’s go to this step so now I’m
just going to repeat it so I’m just going to use some powder and set
everything I have also used a new brush because the other brush is a little bit
red so you can see that it’s slightly red and I just don’t want to mix
everything with the side that I like the most and this is why I like to keep it
from the clean side towards the red side so now I’m just going to repeat the same
on the other side now I have set everything and this will
be like this is now the final look when it comes to your eyes and how you can
cover them up if you want to go now to the next step which is applying your eye
makeup then go for it I just like to stop right here because
this is what this video is about and I honestly have to tell you that I’m not
sure how I should think about this technique I mean this one is quick easy
if you have a concealer which is a little bit orange based in your skin
tone then it’s just so quick to cover up your darkness so it doesn’t matter what
skin tone you have you just need to find a concealer which is close to your skin
tone with a hint of an orange in it and this will be your color correcting
concealer so you don’t need that much and with the red one I mean if you have
very pale and you’re going to apply this strong color I mean normally if you are
very pale you have already problems with some red areas on your cheeks or
forehead or chin so you don’t want it to enhance it so I just wouldn’t use a red
lipstick to cover up your dark circles so I personally would prefer to use an
orange concealer which is close to your skin tone or like this light pinkish if
you are paler because there’s still some red in it so
if you’re using some red and mix it in with white it will get pink so and if
you’re using yellow and red it will get orange so as long as it has like a
reddish like tint in it pretend in it for another color it will work but just
go for one which is really suitable for your skin tone and then you don’t have
to worry about covering up with a lot of foundation or concealer so it just can
keep it natural and simple and it won’t be that heavy on your face so this is
what I can suggest you I made experiment and I personally just like this side
which is the beautiful side and this one is the red side and even though I have
covered that with concealer foundation and so on as you can see that it’s red I
don’t know how you will see it now on the screen
I personally can see it and I wouldn’t go out like this so I just would go out
like this side and this is also what works for me the best just try it out
make the experiment for yourself and just see what will cover up the most for
you and also it depends as I said before how much foundation do you use if you
like to keep it simple go for this side you feel like a full coverage and you
like to play around with some colors then you might want to go for this side
but I would I wouldn’t recommend it so it’s not totally up to you this is not
the end of the video and I just hope that you like it and thank you so much
for watching and excuse my hair it’s a mess but I just will have a look at the
I don’t know Priceline pharmacy or something like that to get a shampoo
that will just make my hair a little bit softer or like a spray so if you have
any recommendation of how I can just manage my hair then these are welcome
because it’s quite humid up here and thank you so much for watching and if

  1. I had never heard of using lipstick to cover dark circles. I have heard of using color correcting concealer but I never tried it so until I started watching your videos, I had no idea of what color to use. I have heard of people using a lipstick for a cream blush or eyeshadow.
