What Causes Dark Circles Under Eyes?

Dark circles under the eyes often occur as a result of two skin concerns: 

1. Thinning Skin

As we age, our skin naturally gets thinner, especially around the eyes. This causes blood vessels to become more visible. 

2. Puffy Eyes 

Puffy eyes can cast dark shadows under the eyes, resulting in tired-looking eyes. 

There are a number of factors, beyond a lack of sleep, that could be causing your under eye dark circles: 

  • Dehydrated skin 
  • Genetics 
  • Natural aging 
  • Hyperpigmentation 

But how do you brighten under eye bags and awaken skin’s glow? At Revolution, we’ve put together a combination of skincare and makeup tips to help you cover dark circles and reduce the appearance of puffiness! 

How To Conceal Dark Circles

Follow this simple routine to help reduce the appearance of eye bags and cover up those dark circles (even when a few extra hours of sleep aren’t possible!). 

Step 1 – Depuff with Under Eye Patches

Kickstart your eye care routine with our Gold Eye Hydrogel Hydrating Eye Patches 

Enriched with Colloidal Gold and vegan Collagen, you can kiss goodbye to puffy eyes as these patches help to firm, lift and moisturize the delicate under eye area. 

Apply then leave for 10-15 minutes before removing. Pat the excess serum into your under eye dark circles to help further boost the effects! 

Step 2 – Apply a Targeted Under Eye Serum

When it comes to skin hydration, Hyaluronic Acid is our hero! It draws moisture to the skin and, because dehydration is one of the main causes of under eye bags, is the ultimate targeted treatment for dark circles.

The Revolution Skincare Targeted Under Eye Serum also contains 5% Caffeine to help depuff – think of it like a double espresso for your dark circles! 

Apply onto clean skin. Use your ring finger to gently massage 1-2 drops around the orbital bone (the bony area around your eye).  

Step 3 – Eye Cream for Under Eye Bags

For an added boost to help neutralize and cover your dark circles, try our Revolution Skincare Pigment Boost Eye Cream 

This pigment fixing formula helps to target the deep purple tones that make dark circles stand out. It’s blended with Shea and Cocoa Seed Butter to nourish the skin, helping to banish dryness and tackle dull, dark circles under eyes 

Apply before your moisturizer to your under eye area and around the orbital bone. Why not try applying with our Cooling Eye Roller Ball for maximum depuffing? 

Step 4 – Time for Concealer 

Now the prep is done, we have the ultimate concealing routine to help cover your dark circles all day long!  

We have a multitude of concealers to choose from, but we’ve listed a few of our favorites, allowing you to select a formula to suit your needs perfectly! 

If you’re looking for a brightening concealer, try the Makeup Revolution Eye Bright Illuminating Under Eye Concealer. As the name suggests, this concealer is designed with dark circles under the eyes in mind. As well as buildable coverage, it delivers brightening Vitamin C to the skin, actively treating the area as you conceal! 

If cream concealer is your thing, try the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Fix Ultimate Coverage Concealer. Available in various shades, this cream formulation provides the very best coverage for dark circles. The high pigment helps to even out skin tone, without drying out your skin. 

And finally, for a hydrating concealer, we recommend the Makeup Revolution Conceal & Hydrate Concealer. Formulated with Hyaluronic Acid, this concealer is perfected for keeping the skin around your eyes well hydrated to help target the appearance dark circles.
