Choosing the Perfect Shade:
The first step in achieving a radiant, smooth under-eye is selecting the right concealer shade. Your perfect concealer shade will effectively camouflage dark circles, discoloration, and imperfections without drawing attention to the concealer itself. MAKE’s Skin Mimetic Concealer is available in 20 unique shades so that you can find the perfect shade to mimic the look of your skin or brighten your under eyes. To ensure a seamless blend, opt for a shade that matches your skin tone or a shade that is slightly lighter for a brightening effect. Take the time to swatch and test different shades on your jawline or inner wrist for your closest match. Remember, a smooth transition between your natural skin tone and concealer is the key to a natural-looking under-eye.
Prepping the Under-Eye Area:
The key to expertly applying concealer starts with preparing the under-eye skin properly. Start by applying MAKE’s Orbital Eye Balm, our soothing eye treatment that delivers long-lasting moisture for a smooth canvas for concealer. Allow enough time for the eye balm to properly sink, ensuring a non-slippery surface that also enhances the longevity of your concealer. This step sets the foundation for flawless application, helping concealer blend seamlessly into the skin for a complexion that looks hydrated – never cakey or dry.
Blending with Expert Precision:
To achieve a smooth and even under-eye, apply several small swipes of the Skin Mimetic Concealer in your shade of choice away from the inner corners of each eye. Next, apply two more swipes of concealer across the others, forming a crisscross pattern, moving towards the inner corners and downward by applying these additional swipes in the opposite direction. After forming a crisscross pattern with the second layer of concealer, take a brush and blend outward. This technique distributes the product evenly, helping the concealer blend seamlessly into the skin for a natural-looking finish that lasts throughout the day.
Illuminating the Under-Eyes Area:
In addition to blending, illuminating the under-eye area is a crucial step for achieving a bright, lit-from-within complexion. The crisscross motion used to achieve a natural-looking, skin-like finish also helps to brighten the under-eye region. By evenly distributing the concealer with this technique and blending upward and outward, you'll achieve a brightening effect in addition to a smooth texture. Incorporate these steps into your routine for a flawless, radiant under-eye area that’s sure to elevate any makeup look.
Set with Diffusion Set Translucent Pressed Powder:
Setting your under-eye concealer with powder is a crucial last step to achieving a flawless, long-lasting complexion. To lock product in place and prevent it from creasing, smudging, or settling into fine lines throughout the day, gently press MAKE’s Diffusion Set Translucent Setting Powder where concealer has been applied. Specially formulated with microsphere powders and a mineral complex, this ultra-soft, refillable powder works to enhance the overall performance and longevity of your makeup by absorbing excess oil and smoothing the look of skin for a natural, balanced finish. Ensure your under-eye makeup stays smooth, crease-free, and flawless for hours on end with this weightless formula.
