Another problem that most of us have are undereye circles, and well, they are definitely caused by today’s stressful environment and lifestyle, that undereye problems are almost a normal thing. Undereye circles are caused by inadequate oxygen circulation around the area.
One thing that I’m not very fond of is seeing girls in photos sporting really good makeup ( and I mean really good ) but having a dash of yellow line under their eyes – too much concealer, perhaps? That’s caused by overapplying cream concealers, or not blending them properly. With mineral makeup, we won’t have a problem with that because we will be using loose minerals for them, and with the right application and pressure, it would seem as if you didn’t even apply makeup on that area.
Tools to use
There are two makeup brushes that can be used to conceal undereye circles. The makeup brush that I would definitely recommend is the smallest blending brush that you can find – a fluffy one, and in animal hair. For those who think they can control the pressure on their hands already, a concealer brush in synthetic hair would be okay. But I still strongly recommend an animal hair eye brush for this because it picks up just about the right amount of pigments ( not too much, like how a synthetic brush would do ) because you would definitely want foolproof and unnoticeable concealing as much as possible.
Mineral Makeup To Use
Yellow-based loose mineral correctors are often used to conceal undereye circles. They brighten the under eye area and give the under eye area a well-rested look. My favorite three would have to be Saffron by Oceanmist Cosmetics, Buttercup by Monave and Red Zapper by Valerie Beauty. Well Rested by Bare Escentuals is really really great, as well!
How To Apply
After applying foundation, whip up your fluffy animal hair eye brush ( preferrably, blending brush ), swirl, tap ( yes, really, tap! ) and lightly sweep under the eyes, starting from under the inner V of your eyes, sweeping to the right ( or left ) in an outward motion. Sweep downward and outward, until the “base” of the undereye circle. Don’t worry if it isn’t fully covered yet. You can always add more by layering, just be careful in applying that you don’t see any yellow under your eyes. You will notice that one of your eyes would look lifted, well rested, and minus the dark undereye circle. And you didn’t even see makeup there. Voila! That’s perfectly done, if I may say!
For really dark undereye circles, and yellow correctors just won’t do the trick, apply concealer foundation, using the same technique, but be very gentle as it may crease on the undereye.
I’m so glad that in this day and age, undereye circles can be concealed.
I hope that helped! Your thoughts?
