Application Technique
  • Avoiding creasing in fine lines – everyone has fine lines especially under eyes, you’re not suddenly getting old! You can prevent concealer from settling in fine lines with the following tips.

1. Use primer with SPF to fill fine lines 2. Pat to blend concealer with damp beauty blender (use pointed end for precision) 3. Set with translucent powder – to stay put and last all day

  • Apply in V formation – for flattering highlighted look, avoid looking like a white-eyed racoon  images-6
  • Pat to blend – alternatively to using a damp beauty blender, use ring finger to pat which is weaker than index finger so you won’t blend the concealer away. Using patting motion, as opposed to rubbing the concealer in, will give maximum coverage.
3. Prevent Imperfections
