Hi AMW friends! Happy Hump-Day!
I have a quick tip for you guys! Really quick I promise you!
Don't you dislike it when you apply your foundation, concealer and set it with a nice loose powder and midday, you find your under-eye area creases and dries up?
Well, after several practice on various clients, I've found a way to deal with this situation!
Instead of putting up Steps 1-10, what I'll be doing now will be totally different from normal tutorials or "tips" blog post. Because I will tell you to UNDO one step.
After your skincare routine and when you are doing your BB Cream, CC Cream or Foundation routine (cream and liquid), skip application on the undereye area.
YES! You read that right, SKIP application on that area and apply your favorite BB cream or foundation all over your face (or wherever coverage is needed) skipping the undereye area.
Let me tell you why!
Most of these BB creams or foundations are oil-free, some are even meant to "mattify" your entire face! Thus, if you apply such product on the eye area, it will absorb moisture around the area thus it may dry up that area as quick as a lightning!
Now with your full face makeup on (except undereye area). Apply a thin layer of your favorite hydrating eye cream. Let it sit there for a couple of minutes as you do your eye makeup.
Once done, apply a thin layer of your high coverage foundation or hydrating concealer (ex. Benefit's Fake Up, Ben Nye Conceal-All-wheel, etc..) with a patting motion. Set with a loose powder using damp sponge (You may want to read my post on How to Maximize the use of wedge sponge). VOILA! No more creasing on the undereye area for the rest of the day!
Well, the least product you used on that area, the better it is for that part of the skin to "breathe".
Do you like my quick tip today?
What are your other tips to share to prevent undereye creasing?
We'd love to hear from you!
