Finding concealer that doesn't make African-American skin look gray or ashy is sometimes not easy, but when eye bags from late nights take over your face, getting your hands on that concealer becomes a beauty necessity. The right concealer will neutralize the bags' color and blend with your skin without making you look drab. Once you find your new go-to product, a clean and clear face is a few minutes away.
Coat your eye skin with a shimmery eye cream to reflect light away from your droopy skin. Use a small dab of cream and pat it around your eye skin, then wait for it to dry.
Dab concealer over the eye bags, using your fingers. Use a concealer that's a hair lighter than your skin to hide the bags, and look for one with a yellow or golden undertone to neutralize the blue-black of the eye bags. Apply just one layer of concealer so you don't get the dreaded pancake.
Finish your look with sheer powder, which helps the concealer look more natural. Dab the powder on using a brush or powder puff.
