Dark circles cupping your eyes is a universal problem, making your face look dull with uneven skin tone. Ageing, genetics, sun exposure, lack of sleep — causes can be many. Like they say, there's nothing that makeup can't conceal and if you're hunting for a good concealer for instant cover-up, here are a few things you should keep in mind.
A good concealer should not only seamlessly cover your dark circles, but also stay put for a 7-8 hours. It should not crease into your fine lines nor should it make your skin look cakey.
