How Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, and More Get Rid of Dark Circles
Thanks to the rise of social media, we can now rest assured that stars indeed are just like us. They go to the grocery store! They drink wine on a weeknight! They post (too many) Snapchat videos with the dog filter! The most surprising thing we’ve learned about the hallowed Hollywood elite through social media, however, is that they too struggle with the life annoyances that are dark circles and under-eye bags.
Take a look at Rosie Huntington-Whiteley’s Snapchat, for instance, and you’ll see the pillowy-lipped model walk viewers through her entire makeup regimen, starting with a bare face. Sure, her “dark circles” may be an entirely different league of our own (hers are barely discernible, while ours may resemble craters on the moon), but that doesn’t mean we’re any less attentive when she shares the concealer she swears by to conceal them. (It’s Nars , £23, by the way.)
With that in mind, we scoured the internet to see what other dark-circle cures celebrities swear by. Because if Selena Gomez says an eye cream really works, and we’re staring at her bright-eyed visage on the red carpet, who are we to deny our faces the same opportunity?From frozen spoons to miracle eye creams, see the under-eye cures Selena, Kate, and more swear by below!
Our contributor Lindsay Ellingson broke down her entire in-flight beauty routine for us, and it was glorious. The one thing she never travels without?Klorane’s Smoothing & Relaxing Patches(£17), which tighten and brighten the under-eye area in just a few minutes.
The glowy-skinned Gabrielle Union has a less traditional hack for getting rid of dark circles and puffiness. “I chill sometea bags—right now it’s Lipton—and use them on my under-eye,” she tells NYTimes.com. She’s onto something: The caffeine, tannins, and antioxidants naturally found in tea can tighten and soothe the under-eye area.
If you have sensitive eyes, take a cue from Whitney Port and countfrozen spoonsas your (eye) saviors. “My eyes are very sensitive, so I put spoons in the freezer and then place the frozen spoons on my eyes when they’re irritated or when I’m tired,” she tells TheBeautyBean.com.
Our immediate reaction when Kate Hudson Snapchatted a selfie of herself wearing “electro-shock” eye patches—wired patches that wrapped around her ears and hung from a plug—was confusion, then a ravenous desire to find out exactly what they are. Turns out they’reelectric eye patches, which contain hyaluronic acid and collagen. “The patch is applied to your skin and connected to an electrode to deliver heat energy to the underlying tissues,” Jessica Weiser, MD, tellsPeople. (The WrinkleMD Hyaluronic Acid Deep Infusion System, £166, is one, if you want to check it out.)
Kim Kardashian West revealed many makeup secrets in her 1000-step regimen during her master class, not least of which included which concealer she counts on to cover her dark circles. That would beKevyn Auction’s(£38), which she said her makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic introduced her to.
Selena Gomez spilled her beauty secrets to Into the Gloss and revealed the eye cream she calls her holy grail:First Aid Beauty’s(£21). “If you get dark circles, it’s the sh*t,” she says. She says she’ll put it on, and it feels “all good and cold,” and then she’ll have a coffee to finish up her wake-up process.
Last but not least, Chloë Grace Moretz proved herself to be a beauty hacker after our own hearts when she revealed that though she loves eye cream (La Mer, naturally), she also uses a much budget-friendlier alternative. “Lucas’ Papaw Ointment(£10 for two) is my go-to,” Moretz says. “I cover my lips in it, and then I put it underneath my eyes. Hydration is key.” BRB—buying all the red tubes.
