Does this look familiar? Dark circles and bags under the eyes are just some of the beauty challenges we face as we grow older. Whether you got them from stress, lack of sleep, or just as a fun bonus to the whole aging process, you’re probably hoping to cover them up! While there’s nothing wrong with going without makeup – in fact, we totally encourage the all-natural look – there are some occasions where you might want to dress up and put on some makeup.
