How to highlight & fake the look of sleep!
Hello, beauty’s you have been asking me to tell you how I apply my concealer to highlight and cover my under eye area. I’m excited to finally be able to sit down and tell you. In this post, I’m going to tell you how I apply my concealer, blend it out and the products I use. Going through the steps I do before and after to make sure it stays in place all day.
Let me know if you would like to see a video of me doing this and I can sort one for you!
First, I apply my primer and foundation so I have a nice fresh base to work on.
Being a mummy with two monkeys, who don’t like to sleep I have such awful under eyes. I suffer from deep bags and a horrid bluey bruised colour to my skin.
I will use this method to brighten my eyes and give the illusion of a full night’s sleep!
“Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer” in the shade “fair 1” is amazing. It has a great coverage and is so affordable. It’s the best one I’ve tried and the shade is light enough for my pale skin!
I like to draw triangles pointing down words under my eyes, this will help open them up and make me appear more awake. I like to do a line down the centre of my nose, a circle on my chin and a fan shape between my eyes up to the forehead. These places are where light naturally hits, I want these to look bright, light and fresh.
Using my damp real techniques sponge
I will blend it all out. I love the shape of this Real Techniques Sponge as I can get right under my eyes and into the corners. Get it HERE
To finish I use a setting powder to stop the area from creasing. I’m currently loving RCMA No colour translucent powder. “ELF High Definition Undereye setting powder”, or products like Nyx banana powder are great. Most translucent powders will do the job nicely.
That’s it! Super easy and quick but makes such a difference! I hope this mini-breakdown of what I do helps you. As always I would love to know what concealers and setting powders you guys use? I always love hearing your recommendations!
