Sometimes people are just tired during a photoshoot or perhaps they naturally have very dark circles under their eyes. No matter the reason, it often makes subjects look tired or just not very lively. It's easy to reduce dark circles under eyes using Photoshop, however, as we can see in the tutorial below from Phlearn.

To reduce dark circles under the eyes, we will utilize a "blend if" technique with a curves adjustment layer, such that we will be affecting only the darks in the image. After lightening the dark circles, we will want to make the color of the lightened skin match better. Check Aaron Nace's techniques out in action below.
