Suffer from dark circles under your eyes? Try this little known beauty hack

DARK under-eye circles are one of the hardest things to conceal – but now there’s a simple, albeit bizarre, solution.

Maia applies red lipstick to the area under her eyes, which she then blends in seamlessly with ordinary concealer.

Apparently, red works well as a concealer because it contrasts with the greenish colour of the circles underneath our eyes.
