Dirtstache optical illusion!

When I shave my face, it always leaves behind the appearance of a dirtstache. How do I stop this?

Part of it is the fact that I don't grow much facial hair outside of my upper lip, so the "shadow" doesn't appear anywhere except there. (I'm east Asian). But I still wish I could shave in a way that doesn't leave my upper lip slightly darker than the rest of my face. I use a gillette fusion razor and gel shaving cream. I think the shave is plenty close, although I haven't tried many other methods. Sometimes I use an electric razor but I think the effect is the same. Any tips?
