artist showed me was to apply eye
cream to the outer corner of the
eye where you see the crows feet.
Apply the concealer in the sinus
area (triangle within the inner
corner) under the eye then swipe
your finger back and forth under
the eye to blend pigment and
hydration in just the right areas.
Choose a lightweight formula.
The texture of the concealer
affects how much it will crease.
Dry concealers tend to crease
more because they are less flexible
and cling to the folds of the skin.
Choosing light reflective, cream
formulas seem to work best in
prevention of creasing.
Apply the eye cream prep.
Prepping the under eye area is
important, as many people are
already dry even if they applied
an eye cream first thing in the
morning. I prefer to re-apply eye
cream, continue with the rest of
the makeup then go back to the
under eye area to apply concealer.
This has given the eye cream
enough time to absorb and do all
of the line plumping and hydrating
benefits before you apply the
finishing concealing product.
Don’t apply too close to the
lashline. Avoid taking concealer
up to the bottom lashes, as
concealer tends to pool and crease
there. If you get to close to the
lash line, fix it by dipping a pointed
cotton swab in some makeup
remover or setting spray and gently
run it under the lash line.
Choose the right tools. Tools
A Cosmetics Must
matter. A great trick is to use a
small, pointed synthetic brush to
apply the concealer only to the areas
where you see a shadow. Then,
The warmth of your skin will melt
product and blend it, making it look
like skin and not makeup.
Overall, concealer is one those
cosmetics that is a must. Take
the time to investigate formulas
by splurging on multiple brands
or having more education about
the line you carry in your spas
or salons. Clients will come back
time and time again for more
education from you once you
show them your concealer expert
skills and give them the “why” on
what a product is truly doing for
them. Encourage your clients to
conceal to reveal their best self.
Avoid taking concealer to the bottom lashes, where it may pool and crease.
