How to remove dark circles with a bronzer from a professional
“The reason this works is because generally bronzers are warm, and the warmth of the bronzer counteracts any blueness—or dark circles—around the eyes,” Hughes explains. Basically, think of a warm-toned bronzer as an under-eye color corrector: the former contains orange undertones that neutralize cool blue undertones.
This is actually the main difference between bronzer and contour; while both can add definition to the face, contouring formulas tend to read in much cooler tones. So make sure you have a matching bronzer before you apply it under your eyes, as contouring will only enhance any shadows.
Hughes uses Rose Inc Solar Infusion Soft-Focus Cream Bronzer in Seychelles, but feel free to scroll through this list of favorites to find a formula you like. Saie’s Sun Melt would also be a great option to try. Even so, you may want to opt for a cream product instead of a powder, since you’ll be using it instead of a concealer.
For that matter, you can either go all concealer over your bronzer for a brighter look, or you can just use the bronzer. The latter is perfect for days when you just want some oomph but even if you apply concealer, it will still look quite natural.
Hughes dabs her favorite formula on the inner and outer corners of her eyes, then blends it in with a fluffy concealer brush. “Pet it [the formula] because you don’t want to mix too much concealer with that bronzer,” she notes. – You want them to sit on top of each other.”
