Learn How to Cover Dark Under Eye Circles or Bruises

In this week’s episode of Thyroid Thursday, freelance makeup artist (and our very own) Jean Kim (@jeamkin on Instagram) teaches us how to cover up dark under eye circles or bruises after surgery with makeup.

8 Steps to Concealing Dark Circles and Bruises

Step 1

Apply orange color-correction concealer on the bruise or dark circle.

Step 2

Blend out the concealer with a damp makeup sponge.

Step 3

Apply more orange concealer on the really dark areas.

Step 4

Apply a concealer 1 – 2 shades lighter than your skin tone.

Step 5

Make sure to blend this newest layer of concealer in.

Step 6

Add more light layers of concealer if you need more coverage.

Step 7

Set the concealer with a translucent setting powder.

Step 8

Gently dust off the excess powder with a clean fluffy brush.


Always use gentle dabbing motions. Never wipe! This will make sure you have maximum coverage.
