Today I have something for those who are either suffering from dark under eyes circles and/or concerned about aging around the eyes.
Since you’re using concealer to cover up your dark eye circles, why not make take your concealer even further, and make it to be one that also treats your under eye concerns as well?
What I mean is, why not have a concealer that acts as both makeup and under-eye treatment? And why not make your own?
All you have to do is mix a drop of anti-aging eye cream with your under-eye concealer, then apply as normal. This will make a concealer that not only covers your dark eye circles,but also acts as a treatment and will plump up the underage area too, giving it a more youthful appearance.
This is also a makeup artist trick to help the concealer blend and apply more smoothly, especially for the concealers with a more dry, dense formula, like this one, one of the best concealers on the market, but is better used when mixed with a moisturizer of some sort.
(Which also, sidenote, you can mix your concealer with your normal moisturizer as well if you don’t have an eye cream – extra moisture around the eye area will always helps with moisturizing. As I mentioned here, I believe that the only thing you really need for “anti aging” is sunscreen and moisture, so any moisturizer will work.)
For this trick, just make sure it doesn’t get anywhere in your eyes, always keep your concealer in the under eye area.
This trick will also work with concealer that you use for zits and blemishes – just mix concealer with a drop of your favorite pimple cream, and voila! A concealer that not only covers your zit, but treats it as well.
There are actually endless possibilities, if you think about it. Let me know if you try this out and what you think.
