It Makes You Look Flawless
The best undereye concealer is the one that blends so perfectly with your own skintone that it almost appears invisible. Suddenly your imperfections simply vanish. To top it off you’ll look wide awake and healthy. That might be why they’re one of the favorite pick me ups that professional makeup artists simply can’t get enough of. Concealers are instant flaw fixers!
Eye Concealer Makeup Tips
The trick to find the best undereye concealer is to know how to work with it, determine the amount of coverage you need, and find the right product. If you find yourself struggling when it comes to covering dark undereye circles then take a few minutes and learn a few pro makeup tips.
Start by warming the product slightly by taking a small amount on your hand and swirl it around using your finger.
Apply it with a tiny brush or gently pat it on with your fingertip. A brush will help you get the product closer to the lash line but you actually risk swiping some of the product off. Try tapping it on with your fingertip.
Makeup artists will lightly brush with powder if the discoloration is near the top of the cheek. Do not powder if you have applied it right underneath your eyes because the powder can emphasize wrinkles.
Top Undereye Concealers
Touche Eclat by Yves Saint Laurent – This is the concealer that makeup artist’s love because it contains pigments that illuminate and cover. When light bounces off an area, a flaw is less noticeable. There’s a brush built right into the concealer pen making it super simple to use. It works great on undereye circles and you can use it on lines, too.
Secret Camouflage by Laura Mercier – A classic concealer that comes with two shades. You can blend the shades to match your skin color. It contains enough pigment that it works well for minor to moderate imperfections.
Camouflage Duet by FACE atelier – If you need a highly pigmented concealer that just glides on, then give this one a try. There are two colors in each one that you blend together. A big plus is that you can order a product sample first to make sure you like the color. These samples are perfect for mixing up the best undereye concealer for your skintone.
ERA™ FACE spray-on foundation by Classified Cosmetics – This airbrush foundation also makes an excellent concealer. It covers redness and undereye circles. Just spray a little into your palm and dab it on the area.
If you are wearing foundation, then you want to put your concealer on after your foundation. If you aren’t wearing foundation you might like to try wearing a primer and then using a little concealer over that.
* Remember that when it comes to finding the best undereye concealer you might need to try a couple before you find the right one. If you have very dark undereye discoloration then the best makeup concealer for you might be a professional product that contains higher levels of pigment.
