CORRECT WAY OF CONCEALING UNDER EYES CIRCLES

Hi all,

This one is a quick post about how the proper technique of covering the dark circles under eyes.First of all just a simple reminder:

"Concealer should be used over the foundation if you are wearing liquid foundation.If you are wearing powder or mineral foundation use concealer before foundation".

Ok lets do it in steps:

First take a look at my dark circles.Duh duh dahhhhh:




1)-Moisturize under eyes.The area has thin skin and can easily start developing fine lines if not taken care of.So make a routine of moisturizing under eyes at night.

2)-Prime.You can use a regular face primer or an eye shadow primer.Both work fine.

3)-Apply foundation.

4)-Apply the concealer in dots in a shape of inverted triangle with the base at lower lid(shown below).





5)-Take a flat concealer brush and blend.Blending outward towards temple is better.Blend the harsh lines properly.



                   





6)-Make sure you conceal in a triangular area and not semicircle if you have swollen or baggy under eyes.





7)-Now,take some setting powder or HD setting powder(if you like illuminated effect) and dust it under eyes using a velvet sponge.




8)-Now leave it to set and do your hair or nails or eye makeup.



9)-Now take your make up setting powder and use it all over face blending around the eyes very gently.




10)-Dust the excess with fan brush or large powder brush.

                                                                   
  Ta da you are done.







No air brushing.I don't have money to upgrade to airbrushing programme :P

    1. Hi Faiza,
      For this post i have used boi-ing by benefit.However,it does have a creasing problem on my oily skin.I would suggest you try glamoflauge by Hard candy.or Rimmel match perfection concealer, or Loreal lumimagic pen concealer.

    2. If you are confused about shade selection always buy a brighter shade.One shade lighter then skin tone or lighter then your foundation.Triangle application and blending the margins will give the lovely glowing look under eye.
      The ashy look can be due to shade mismatch or because of oxidation of concealer.Use a primer under the concealer and see if it fixes the problem.If not then its time to try a new concealer :)
