So, this girl on Youtube gave a trick for concealing dark under eye circles (my arch-nemesis) that sounded like it had a lot of potential. She said that the color orange cancels out the color blue (as in under eye circles), thus neutralizing the dark circles right off your face. (This to me is more exciting than the second coming of Christ.)
The trick, she said, is to apply orange lipstick over the dark circles, then apply concealer on top.
I was so excited seeing this video and the comments (lots of people said they tried it and it worked), that I almost ran out the door without pants on to go buy some orange eye shadow. (In the comments section, a woman said it worked, but half way through the day her concealer wore off and she was walking around work with orange lipstick under her eyes. So I took her advice and went with orange eye shadow instead.)
I can’t imagine a heroine addict going from so high to so low any faster than I did. Because, much to my dismay, the orange trick did not work for me.
Not to say that it doesn't have potential. If the colors blend together with your skin tone, it might actually work. My skin is just so pale right now that the orange eye shadow (even when it was covered by concealer) made me look like I had some weird under eye jaundice.
Let me know if you end up trying it and if it works for you. And if it doesn’t, let me know if you have any swamp land in Florida for me to buy.
Here's the video. What do you think?
