Red Lipstick to Cover Dark Circles

There is a video trending on using red lipstick to cover dark circles. Does it work? It does! It needs to be an orange red. However, lipstick is not formulated for use around the eyes. It can cause irritation when used around the eyes, the heavy waxes and oils in lipstick can cause puffiness and clogged pores under the eyes, and some red lipsticks contain a small amount of lead.

A better option is to use a orange or salmon color concealer to cancel out the blue/purple color of dark circles.

I have used it for years and it works great. Apply the orange concealer to the dark circles. Pat on a concealer and/or foundation matching your skin color on top of the orange concealer.
