Questions and Answers

Pan cake to hide dark circles?


Pancake makeup is good to hide dark circles. What you will do is rub a thin layer first on the area around your eyes.

However, if the area around your eyes have some wrinkles, it is not advisable to use pancake makeup. What will happen is that the makeup will seep into those wrinkles, making them all more obvious. Not only will the dark circles become more enhanced because of the wrinkles, it will also look more messy because of the unbalanced application caused by the creases. Therefore, pancake makeup is ideal for dark circles only when you don't have wrinkles.
