3 Steps To Brighter Eyes!

Concealing my dark circles has always been a bit of a challenge for me.  After trying numerous products, I have found some things that are working great!  There are three steps that I do when concealing my circles, and this routine lasts all day and doesn’t crease! 
 
Step 1 :  CORRECT.

 I like to correct the blue tones underneath my eyes with a peachy-pink toned corrector.  This one is really good from Pixi, it is their Correction Concentrate in Brightening Peach.  This has a cream consistency, but doesn’t feel cakey on my skin.  I also love the Maybelline Instant Age Rewind Dark Circle Eraser Concealer in Brightener for this step.  I am using a Crown Concealer Brush to gently pat the product underneath my eyes.  Any flat brush like this will work; you can even use a shadow brush.  I am careful to only put this on the parts of skin that are discolored.  This will correct the color and you’ll be ready for concealer!

  

2.  CONCEAL
  

I then take a concealer that is more of a liquid consistency for underneath the eyes, today I am using the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer in Fair.  This is a lightweight concealer that covers up the peach and brightens up my undereyes.  I like to use a concealer a couple of shades lighter for underneath my eyes for a nice bright effect.  I use my fingers to gently blend with patting motions.

 

3.  SET

  

Ok, so the last thing I like to do is to make sure that this makeup isn’t going to go anywhere!  I like to use a loose translucent powder, like this Laura Mercier Secret Brightening Powder to set my makeup.  This powder is super finely milled and you only need a tiny bit.  It has light reflecting particles in it that help with brightening.  I like to use my Real Techniques Setting Brush to sweep it on lightly.  Any small fluffy brush will work.  Using a powder to set will help with creasing, and will also help it to last all day.  I also like the NARS Light Reflecting Powder in Translucent Crystal for this step.  For a drugstore option, the Rimmel Stay Matte powder in Transparent works great, too!
  

And there you have it!  A nice, bright undereye 🙂
