Sometimes we don't always to do the most when it comes to removing dark circles, so an easy way to get rid of these dark circles is by just using concealer. It is an easy cover up and easy to hid them with just a touch of make up.

2. Tea is key!

Tea bags help with removing dark circles! What I like to do is steep tea bags in hot water then let them cool and place them over my eyes for about 15 mins. Green tea contains caffeine which helps when it comes to making the blood vessels around our eye shrink which then helps reduce dark circles.

3. You need some milk!

So I have seen on tv that if you soak cotton balls or cotton pads in milk and place them over your dark circles it can help with reducing and getting rid of dark circles. Now, I don't know how true this is but I mean it wouldn't hurt to try.

4. Sweet Almond Oil!

According to Huda Beauty's blog sweet almond oil helps with the circulation of blood for your dark circles. Huda beauty suggest to put a small dab of sweet almond oil on your dark circles every night until you notice a difference.

5. Sleep is needed!

An easy way for your dark circles to reduce is honestly just getting enough sleep! You may be noticing your dark cirlces because you are depriving yourself from sleep.. so get some sleep!!

6. Use lemons for your circles!

I know that lemons can help brighten skin(which should be done very carefully) but the if you really want your dark circles to leave I suggest mixing together just a little lemon juice and baking soda together.

It should have a paste consistency, let sit under your eyes for 15 then wash away. I would do this daily until I saw results, but if you notice any irritation to your skin I most defiantly would stop.

7. Rose Water loves skin!

Rose water loves the skin and really helps with dark circles. Rose water is high in Vitamin C which is good for the skin and dark circles. Make sure you get an all natural rose water.

8. Tomatoes!

I have read that lots of people use tomatoes to get rid of their dark circles. After researching I found that tomatoes have natural bleaching that can lighten the skin. Whenever it comes to lighting the skin for things like dark circles, I just say be very careful!

9. Cucumbers for the win!

We all have seen people put cucumbers on their eyes. That is because cucumbers are natural antioxidants that can help remove dark circles. Pretty basic and easy!

10.  Grab some turmeric!

Turmeric is a natural anti-inflammatory that helps with dark circles, If you easily look up "Turmeric mask for dark circles" on Youtube for Pinterest you will easily find different mask that involves turmeric and help with dark circles.

There you go, dark circles are something that many struggle with but when handled the right way they can actually be very easy to get rid of.

It's tough to find perfect tattoos with meaning.

You probably want something permanent on your body to mean something deeply, but how do you choose a tattoo that will still be significant in 5, 10, 15, or 50 years? Over time, tattoos have lost much of their stigma and many people consider them a form of art, but it's still possible to get a tattoo you regret.

So here are 20 tattoos you can't go wrong with. Each tattoo has its own unique meaning, but don't blame me if you still have to deal with questions that everyone with a tattoo is tired of hearing!

SEE RELATED: "Please Stop Asking What My Tattoos Mean"

1. A semicolon indicates a pause in a sentence but does not end. Sometimes it seems like you may have stopped, but you choose to continue on.


2. "A smooth sea never made a skilled sailor."


3. Top symbol: unclosed delta symbol which represents open to change. Bottom symbol: strategy.


4. "There are nights when the wolves are silent and only the moon howls."


5. Viking symbol meaning "create your own reality."


6. Greek symbol of Inguz: Where there's a will, there's a way.

7. Psalm 18:33 "He makes my feet like the feet of a deer; he causes me to stand on the heights."


8. 'Ohm' tattoo that represents 4 different states of consciousness and a world of illusion: waking (jagrat), dreaming (swapna), deep sleep (sushupti), transcendental state (turiya) and world of illusion (maya).


9. Alchemy: symbolizes copper, means love, balance, feminine beauty, and artistic creativity.


10. The Greek word “Meraki" means to do something with soul, passion, love, and creativity or to put yourself into whatever you do.


11. Malin (Skövde, Sweden) – you have to face setbacks to be able to go forward.

12. Symbol meaning "thief" from "The Hobbit." It was the rune Gandalf etched into Bilbo's door so the dwarves could find his house.


13. “Lux in tenebris" means “light in darkness."

14. Anchor Tattoo: symbolizing strength and stability, something (or someone) who holds you in place, and provides you the strength to hold on no matter how rough things get.

15."Ad Maiora" is translated literally as “Towards greater things." It is a formula of greeting used to wish more success in life, career or love.


16. A glyph means “explore." It was meant as a reminder for me to never stop exploring.

17. "Aut inveniam viam aut faciam," meaning roughly, "Either I shall find a way, or I will make one."


18. Lotus Flower. It grows in muddy water, and it is this environment that gives forth the flower's first and most literal meaning: rising and blooming above the murk to achieve enlightenment.

19. The zen (or ensō) circle to me represents enlightenment, the universe and the strength we all have inside of us.

20. Two meanings. The moon affirms life. It looks as if it is constantly changing. Can remind us of the inconsistency of life. It also symbolizes the continuous circular nature of time and even karma.

I Stopped Wearing Makeup For A Week And Here's What I Realized

Our insecurities will make us confident.

I've always been the girl who was super into makeup, it truly was a love of mine. However, a couple of weeks ago I realized this love was actually just an insecure crutch of mine if my face wasn't beat I wouldn't leave the house.

I would put on a full face just to drive to the gas station for a soda. I sat in front of the mirror to come to terms with why I thought I could not leave without all the product on my face and simply enough it came down to me thinking it was not acceptable.

I don't have the perfect skin, I have uneven tones, millions of freckles I had to hide, short eyelashes, and breakouts. Although during that self-examination, I decided it was about time I started practicing self-love and one major way I could work on it was by giving up makeup for a period of time.

I will admit at first giving up makeup was hard for me. At the very least I wanted to cave and use concealer and mascara, especially when I went to work. When I walked into my first shift I was given comments such as looking tired, sick, hot (temperature wise), and simply different.

Never comment on how a girl looks when she's not wearing makeup unless you're telling her she looks beautiful because 9/10 times your comment can be offensive.

Another big struggle I had was how the guy I was interested in would react. I honestly had the idea in my head that if I was not wearing makeup that for some reason he would lose interest in me, looks were everything I thought.

In reality, he didn't even really notice until my freckles popped out, all I got was compliments from it.

Within the first couple of days, after I stopped wearing makeup, I realized my face began to clear up even faster than normal and softer. I came to the realization that my uneven skin tone just makes me look like I'm wearing a little blush, just a little extra color.

Lastly, I noticed how wrong I was to hate on the freckles that I had. I may not have chosen to have them, but this week opened my eyes up to how many other people had them as well as how much I needed to embrace and love having them.

My skin may not be perfect, but I love it and ever since taking this week break I only wear makeup (minimal amounts too) when I go out to the club or special events. I love my "caked" face, but I love my natural look just as much now and the amount of self-love and confidence I gained in myself is ginormous. I wish I would have done this sooner.
