For your reference, here’s a breakdown of what our video on corrective techniques for under eye circles teaches, so you can try at home!
- Preparation: Before you start, always sanitize your hands. While you work, remember to take from your product using the back of your brush or a palette knife to ensure that it stays clean and hygienic!
- Identify the area: Have your model tip their head down slightly so that you can more clearly see which area needs to be corrected.
- Apply color-correcting concealer: Apply a little bit of correcting concealer under the eyes. Remember to correct any darkness in the inside corners too! Keep both your touch and your amount of product light- you can always add more, but you can’t take it away very easily!
- Blend your concealer: Make sure your coverage reaches pinkness near the edge of the eye, and blend lightly to that the concealed area matches the natural skin. Try not to over-cover! This can actually draw more attention to the area.
- Powder: With a feathery brush, apply a light amount of translucent powder. This sets the concealer and blends it into the skin, concealing the area better! Remember not to apply too much; you don’t want the powder to look caked on!
- Extra tips: If your model wants a fuller coverage, you can apply foundation after your corrections. Be sure to blend well and to apply in light layers so that the foundation matches with the skin. Set your foundation with powder to avoid creasing throughout the day!
