4. Use concealer carefully
Concealer is a must-have for covering up the previous night’s escapades, but there’s a right way and a wrong way to conceal. Putting too-light concealer on puffy eyes just draws attention to them. If you have a concealer with yellow undertones that works with your skin tone, this is the time to use it – the yellow will help cancel out the blue circles under your eyes. No matter which concealer you use, apply it with a light touch. Remember, you’re not trying to highlight your under-eye area; you’re trying to draw attention away from it. Put the concealer only with warm hands, otherwise you won’t shade it in a proper way. This tip especially concerns dry skin type. If you have oily skin you’d better use a small brush. It will also prevent the spread of harmful bacteria that cause acne. In any case, your concealer should be smooth, creamy and easily blending for a very natural effect. Do not stint in a high-quality purchase, and you will never be disappointed with the results.
Most brands offer a wide variety of light, medium and beige shades. It’s important to choose the right shade of concealer for your skin tone to get the best results.
