In the makeup spectrum, each product fulfills a specific function, aimed at beautifying or highlighting our features. But if it comes to praising the virtues of a specific cosmetic with which to always look good, that is undoubtedly the dark circle concealer.
It is often said that restful sleep is the best beauty ally. But we can't always rest as much as we would like. And even if you sleep like a dormouse, perhaps other factors such as genetics, stress or bad habits mark your dark circles as if you were a panda bear. For this reason, every morning in front of the mirror we use this small but infallible cosmetic to hide the shadows under our eyes that darken our gaze, make us look tired and even aged.
However, even though it is a widely used and daily makeup product, achieving an impeccable result is not as easy as it seems. The problem with dark circles concealer is that it is placed in a very sensitive area full of folds. As a result, if you don't apply it properly, it will crack, resulting in an even more aged, tired and unnatural look. If you identify with this situation, here you will learn the definitive technique so that the concealer covers your dark circles without imperfections.
The first step is, as always when it comes to 'beauty', cleansing the skin of your face and preparing it for makeup. It is imperative that there are no traces of your makeup from yesterday, so remember to remove your makeup every night. In the morning, you should also wash your face with the product that best suits your skin type.
Next, the key so that the dark circles concealer does not crack is to have this area of skin well hydrated. To do this, apply a nourishing eye contour – which can be anti-dark circles, anti-bags or anti-aging, depending on your needs –, always tapping and without rubbing.
Once the eye contour has been absorbed and after finishing your facial care routine, you can move on to makeup. Another key aspect is finding the ideal dark circle concealer for you. Your skin type will determine the best formula, if you need one with anti-inflammatory properties, that reinforces the hydration of your skin or, on the contrary, with a matte finish.
Put a small amount of concealer on your fingertips and apply it to the dark circles with very delicate touches. The heat of your hands will help the product to blend and integrate into the skin naturally. It is better to apply a single layer with a small amount of product and repeat the process when it has been blended as many times as necessary, instead of applying a lot of product directly, as it would look like a glop. Finally, apply a light amount of compact powder with the help of a sponge or brush, so that you will seal the result and it will last perfectly all day.
