‘This Is a Big Step:’ Kandi Burruss Praised After She Reveals This Secret About Her Appearance

Kandi Burruss proved to fans this week that she too deals with imperfections when it comes to her body.

The “Real Housewives of Atlanta” star left fans applauding her courageous behavior after she showed her bare face without makeup. She suffers from hyper-pigmentation and dark circles underneath her eyes.

“I want people to understand why I’m so self-conscious about this,” Burruss said in her Kandi Online YouTube video — shot at Pretty Faces Atlanta cosmetic procedures office — while wiping makeup off her face. “It’s looking like I got a black eye under there.”

Burruss told fans that kids used to poke fun at her under eye circles. She jokingly recalled one boy calling her a “black eyed pea” and said his words scarred her for life. She eventually began using concealer to cover up her imperfections.

“Now that I’ve got @kandikoatedcosmetics I can conceal these dark circles forever!” the mother of three wrote via Instagram on Saturday.

Toward the end of the video the star was depicted getting a Botox procedure.
