How To Use Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector to Hide Dark Circles *Instantly*

Ever since I discovered the Becca Under Eye Brightening Corrector, I have been flat out obsessed with it. 

I notice a huge difference when I use it vs. days I don’t.  It quickly camouflages dark under eye circles without making me pile on concealer.

In short, this corrector brightens the dark tones at the inner corners and underneath the eyes by reflecting light and adding a soft peach tone. I wanted to do a quick demo video, as I’ve gotten a lot questions about applying the product correctly.

Product Info

  • comes in two shades: Light/Medium (best for fair-medium skin tones) + Medium/Deep (best for darker medium to deep skin tones)
  •  retails | $32
  • .16 oz | cream formula
  • corrects and brightens darks circles prior to concealer
  • can also be used on it’s own for lighter makeup days

How To Use

WHERE TO FIT INTO ROUTINE | I use the Becca Corrector before concealer.

I treat this product as a skin care product.  I apply my serum, then eye cream, and face moisturizer, then tap the Becca Corrector over my dark circles only. Then I do my eyeshadow, foundation, and then concealer.

AMOUNT OF PRODUCT TO USE | I gently tap my finger to the top of the jar, then lift.  I don’t press down.  I make sure to only pick up the smallest amount of product. 

The Becca Under Eye Corrector is a cream formula. Creams traditionally have more pigment vs a liquid. That’s why this corrector covers dark circles better than any others I have tried.

Cream formulas need to be worn on hydrated skin and used sparingly, or else they will crease. So again, I only lightly tap my finger on top of the product, then use that small amount for both under eyes.

It seems like the biggest problem I kept hearing from people who had tried the corrector was that it was causing their concealer to crease.  When they tried using a smaller amount, the creasing problem went away. 

WHERE TO PUT THE CORRECTOR | I make sure that I only place the corrector where my inner corners and under eyes are blueish-purple. 

When I first tried the corrector, I placed it like I would concealer, but that actually gives so much reflection and shine that my face and cheeks looked sweaty all day.  When I started placing it on only the purple tones on my inner corners, I got the perfect results.

  1. How does the Becca product differ from Bobbi Brown’s correctors? BB’s come in many shades, with pinker tones for purplish circles and peach tones for brownish circles. My skin tone is very similar to yours, and I use the BB corrector in light bisque to cover my very dark circles. Extra light bisque is recommended for my skin depth, which is in her Ivory family, but she only offers cool and warm tones in the ivory depth, so I don’t have a perfect foundation match in her line, but cool ivory is probably the closest. I find that the slightly darker light bisque covers the darkness better than a lighter shade. I guess that you have to match your undereye circle depth, not your baseline skin depth, to best correct the undereye darkness. The light bisque looks very close to Becca’s light medium shade, hers may be a drop lighter. Is there a reason to choose Becca’s product over Bobbi Brown’s? I would think that having more options for one’s specific coloring is a good thing. Especially if you find yourself on the furthest ends of the skin tone spectrum. But not having tried the Becca product, I don’t know how it compares to the only other comparable product on the market. I think her correctors and concealers are some of the strongest products that the line makes, now that BB is no longer at the helm!
