Concealer can be tricky. And, as we generally want it to cover the most important and hard to disguise areas, it is important to choose the right one and apply it the right way. Follow the steps below to instantly cover and brighten darkness under the eye.
Cream vs Powder
First thing first, decide which formula you will need. As a general rule, oily areas need powder and drier areas will be best suited with a cream. The under eye tends to be drier than the rest of the face, so you will most likely need a creamy concealer for that area. Keep in mind that this formula is more portable as well, so it's great for spot touch-ups on-the-go. Always remember that you may need different concealers for different areas of the face or different times of year.
Step 1: Choosing and applying your Color Corrector stick
For maximum coverage disguising dark circles, start with a Corrector Stick in either a peach or rose undertone. Rose undertones tend to cover blue and purple darkness underneath the eye, while peach serves better to eliminate blue and green. Apply directly from tube, covering any area that appears dark from the inner corner to the outer corner of the eye and all the way up to the lower lash line.
Apply enough of the product so that you can see it on the skin (lower left) and press in until it blends perfectly (lower right.)
Step 2: Choosing and applying your Creme Concealer stick
Choose a Creme Concealer color that is one or two shades lighter than your skin tone and apply on top of Corrector Stick over the entire under eye area, with the Oval Concealer Brush.
