Is Pink Powder The Secret To Covering Dark Circles?
If you’re constantly looking for new hacks to brighten your undereye and conceal dark circles, we got you, boo. The secret? A pink-toned setting powder. Yes, seriously! By simply baking your under eyes with a pink-toned powder, not only will you set your undereye for a crease-free, long-lasting look, but you’ll brighten the area and banish dark circles in seconds. In fact, according to Kylie’s MUA, Ariel Tejada, this is his go-to technique when setting Kylie’s undereye.
Our go-to pink powder is our Huda Beauty Easy Bake Setting Powder, $34 in the shade Cherry Blossom. It’s perfect for this hack as the finely-milled formula creates the most flawless final look. And the great news, our Easy Bake powder in Cherry Blossom is FINALLY BACK IN STOCK! Walk, don’t run to grab yours here.
While pink powder works best for brightening fair to medium skin tones, yellow-toned powders give the most stunning brightening results for medium to rich skin tones. Our Easy Bake Setting Powder, $34, in the shades Blondie and Kunafa, have yellow undertones that blend and brighten beautifully (see it in action here).
Now we have your attention, here’s everything you need to know.

If you’re there thinking, “how is a pink-toned setting powder going to cover my dark circles?” Well, the principle works exactly the same as color correcting. The pink counteracts the shadow of your dark circles, making your undereye appear brighter. You can easily see the difference between a neutral and pink-toned powder in the TikTok tutorial below.

How to Use Pink Powder
All you have to do is apply your usual complexion base and concealer. Make sure this is blended well for a seamless finish. Then taking a damp makeup sponge or powder puff, gently press the pink-toned powder to the undereye area and on the inside bridge of your nose for an added snatch. Depending on the finish you’re looking for, allow it to bake for three to five minutes, then dust off the remaining powder with a large fluffy brush.
