Dark circles. Those pesky, disfiguring circles that comes on display as a dead give away for a few extra cocktails at happy hour.

Got allergies that make you sneeze through the night? Red-rimmed eyes, Puffiness? With these simple tips, you can easily make all of these disappear with the right under-eye makeup application.

Heres a break down of some of the best concealer hacks. Like why you should apply foundation first and the life-changing triangle trick.

  1. It all starts with skin care, which you have probably heard like a million times. To minimize bags under your eyes, use two tea bags steeped in cool water. The caffeine helps constrict the blood vessels underneath the eye to reduce swelling.

  2. Most makeup artists recommend that you apply eye cream before putting on concealer. Makeup artist Gina Brooke recommends mixing serum directly with your concealer for a creamy consistency that won't settle into fine lines and crow's-feet.

  3. Your concealer should be the last step when it comes to eye makeup. First, put on your full face of foundation, then move to your eye makeup. Finish off your face with concealer. This order ensures that you cover up any powder that might have fallen from your shadow application.

  4. Don't forget to neutralize the darkness on your eyelids as well. Apply the same concealer you used under your eyes on top of your lids as a shadow primer.

  5. While we like to blend concealer using our fingers, the best makeup brush to buy is flat with densely packed bristles. A dome-shaped tool will help you get into the smallest crevices.
