I’m gonna propose something kinda crazy here regarding under-eye concealer, but if you bear with me, I think it could be worth your while. It’s something I’ve been doing pretty regularly for the past few weeks and, frankly, it’s rocking my world.
OK, here it is: instead of applying your concealer right after your foundation, do it after you do everything else — after your foundation, your eye makeup, your blush, your lips, bronzer if you wear it, etc. — all of that stuff.
Then, as the very last step in your makeup process, do your under-eye concealer.
Why have I been doing it this way?
Because I’m always looking for ways to get my makeup to look as natural as possible, and that can be a challenge in the under-eye area, you know? — especially if you have some fine lines in that area, and/or you follow a multi-step process involving color correcting and setting your color corrector with powder.
I have lines there, and the more makeup I wear underneath my eyes, the heavier it looks and, but when I wait and do my concealer as the last step, I find myself using less concealer — correction: using just the exactly right amount — because I’m able to use the rest of my look as a reference point.
I talk about using reference points a lot because they really help me use the least amount of product I need for a particular effect.
