Celeb make up artist Katie Jane Hughes recently revealed her trick for concealing dark circles. Instead of going for a thick, peachy coloured corrector or a brightening concealer, Hughes uses a specific colour-matching technique. She looks to the area between the nose and apple of the cheek when picking a shade of undereye concealer. This is the key to making concealer look seamless with the rest of your makeup and not pale circles around your eyes. Here's why:

 

Because this region of the face isn't as suspectable to redness as the rest of your face,

"it's the most neutral-toned part of your face."

 

This prevents you from picking a concealer shade that is too pink or too light, which can create

"a much muddier version of what you already have under your eyes."

 

Hughes says the shade that you pick based on that area may seem to be too dark at first. But once you blend it out, you'll notice your undereye concealer coordinates perfectly with the rest of your face.

 

So now nobody will know that you've been up all night!
