Can we talk under-eye concealer for a second?
Of course we can. That’s why we’re buds. You understand my obsession with the whole dark circle thang, and that’s one of the many reasons I heart ya.
So, I usually blend under-eye concealer with my fingers because I feel like my body temp warms up the product a tad, making it a little easier to work into my skin. Plus, I figure, why use another brush if I don’t have to and be left with yet another brush to clean?
Then I came across the Beautyblender…
Man, this thing is cool! Basically, it’s a non-latex sponge, so it’s not exactly a brush, that you can use to apply and blend concealer, foundation or any cream products you wear on your face or body.
Just wet it with water, and watch it magically expand (ooh!). Then use the dampened sponge to apply your makeup.
Ever since I started using it to blend my under-eye concealer, I’ve seen a huge difference in the final look.
All I do is mix a little MAC Pro Longwear Concealer with MAC Careblends Essential Oils on the back of my hand (a trick I learned from MAC Pro Artist Louise Z), dot the mix under my eyes, and blend it all in with a damp Beautyblender.
When I’m done, I swear the skin under my eyes looks smoother than it does when I just use my fingers. Call me a Beautyblender believer!
Have you tried them yet, and if so, what do you think? They’re available at Sephora stores and sephora.com for $20.
