The Benefits of Orange Concealer

Ever wanted to get rid of those annoying dark circles under your eyes, but to no avail?

The secret could all be in the humble concealer, but not the standard formula that we’re all accustomed to using.

Orange or salmon coloured concealer is actually ideal for dark circles since it cancels out dark lines in all skin tones.
