5 Steps to Crease-Free Under Eyes

In ‘Makeup With Friends’ episode 5, Carrie Barber, MAKE’s Owner and Creative Director, collaborates with renowned celebrity makeup artist, Nikki La Rose, to share tips and tricks for better makeup application. They address a common problem area for both makeup enthusiasts and beginners: our under eyes and creasing concealer. Given the delicate nature of the skin under our eyes, and our eyes’ frequent movement, makeup tends to settle into fine lines, causing unwanted creasing. While creasing may be extremely common, don’t fret – Carrie and Nikki offer several makeup-artist-approved methods to minimize and prevent this common makeup pitfall.

Here are five steps to achieving crease-free under eyes:

1. Avoid Using Too Much Eye Cream

Excessive creasing can be a sign that you may be applying too much eye cream. Less is more in this area. Over-application of eye cream can lead to a slippery base, preventing concealers from settling into the skin.

2. Let Eye Cream Fully Absorb

Allow adequate time for your eye cream to fully absorb before applying concealer to avoid a wet-on-wet scenario. This will ensure a primed canvas for concealer.

3. Use Thin Layers of Concealer

Rather than a thick swipe, apply concealer in thin layers. Allow each layer to dry before layering on more product to avoid buildup, potential creasing and a cakey appearance.

4. Set Concealer With Powder

Use a setting powder to set the concealer to prevent creasing. A light dusting is all you need to ensure your concealer stays in place.

5. Allow Concealer to Dry Before Blending

Hold off on blending until your concealer is nearly dry. This trick not only amps up coverage but also reduces the amount of setting powder you'll need.
