Red lipstick concealer for dark circles – does it work?

 Red lipstick concealer – whatever next?

This beauty hack is to cover dark under eye circles, and you’ll won’t believe what it is – red lipstick concealer!
Dark under eye circles have always been a bit of a bug bear for me, as I’ve never really known how to cover them. I don’t suffer with particularly dark circles, so generally in my day-to-day makeup I don’t bother with concealer.  However, when I’m sporting my full face of makeup, dark circles are more noticeable, and kinda ruins the whole look.
Having Asian skin, my regular orange base concealers leave my under eyes looking ashy – highlighting the circles even more.  If you suffer with the same issue, this beauty trick is for you!
In this video, I show you exactly how to apply red lipstick as under eye concealer, to cover under eye circles.  You can also see how it compares with not wearing concealer, and I also provide tips to avoid eye contact and explain how this trick could work for different skin tones.
So enjoy, and don’t forget to comment and subscribe!
