HOW TO: Apply Concealer + My Concealer Technique
Sharing a quick and useful makeup tip for everyone today!
I assume that everyone here knows how to use a concealer, but do you guys know how to maximize it? Sources will tell you to dot some concealer on your under eyes and blend inwards to conceal lines. Yes, that's correct, but there are some concealers that sink into fine lines, ergo making them appear obvious even more. I'm not saying it's wrong though, but here's the better way to apply it:
You may not notice it, but your eyes have this inverted triangular area. (Marked it for you guys) All you have to do is apply a dot or two in the middle and start blending downwards (as if you're following the pattern of the inverted triangle) to somehow wash out dark circles and so that the tone on your under eyes will blend with your cheeks, giving you a much even- looking complexion. If you have a small puffy area on your under eye, create another (but smaller) imaginary inverted triangle right below the puffy part using your concealer and do the same technique. This technique may also prevent certain concealers from sinking into lines. (Depends on how deep the line/s are)
As for me, I prefer this technique better:
A Beauty Blogger friend asked me what particular highlighter I'm using for my under eyes and I just shrugged my shoulders and said "Nothing. Just concealer." She was amazed at my revelation because in all the events we've attended, she's always thought that I've been using a nice highlighter for my under eyes!
Here's how I apply concealer:
I still follow the traditional technique, but I extend the other end right up to my temples-I found that this certain application does not only conceal dark circles, but also gives me a bright- eyed and lifted look. This also prevents me from having that weird, light patch right under my eyes. My eyes are not symmetrical too: My left eye has a deeper crease than the right one and this way of application kinda' balances out that imperfection.
