genetics, lack of sleep or dehydrated skin. You probably just want them to go away. While the old spoons-in-the-freezer trick can help minimize both temporarily, applying concealer correctly can also make a big difference.

The trick is in the technique:

For dark circles:

1. Begin with an eye cream, gel or primer to even out the texture.

2. Choose a lightweight concealer in shades of peach or orange, which neutralizes blues, browns and purples.

3. Apply using a brush in the shape of a downward facing triangle instead of dotting across the bottom lid.

4. Consider a white or nude liner to add brightness to your eye area.

For bags:

1. Apply concealer slightly lighter than your skin tone right below your bags in the shadows using a small angled brush.

2. Dust translucent powder above the shadows.

3. Don’t use a dark liner on your lower lids.
