These 4 Tricks Are The Secret To Crease-Free Undereye Concealer



Now that summer is in full swing, airy concealers and fresh-faced skin tints are our current base of choice. However, there’s nothing worse than creasing makeup in the summertime, and tragically, some creases are inevitable – nothing a simple fingertip dab cant fix. If undereye makeup creases are ABSOLUTELY killing your vibe rn, there are several techniques that can help minimize them so that your flawless beat thrives longer in the heat. Here are four tips we swear by.

1. Less is Best

When it comes to undereye concealer faux pas, 99.9% of the time, issues ensue when you apply far too much formula. For seamless coverage, were team dots over triangles. Below the bottom lash line, apply three dots under the eyes (one dot on the inner, middle, and outer part of the undereye) to brighten the area, erase dark circles, and curb any cakiness.

What to shop: Our latest baby #FauxFilter Luminous Matte Liquid Concealer, $29, with 14 hours of crease-proof wear. Its a creamy, full-coverage formula that brightens, conceals, and blurs without settling into fine lines. And the shade range is a beaut, with 29 shades for ALL complexions and undertones.

2. Cook to Perfection

A game-changing technique we learned from drag queens and industry MUA faves is cooking,which is a restingperiod for your concealer. Once you’ve applied to the undereyes, allow it to sit for a few minutes on the skin before blending it out with a damp makeup sponge or brush. During this time, do your brows, contouring, or cheeks, and after 2-3 minutes you can then layer on your powder, BUTHow you apply your powder is another secret for a crease-free finish.

3. A Damp Sponge Will Do Wonders

Not only is a damp sponge our preferred tool for seamless, second-skin coverage, but its also superior for applying powder to the undereyes. Once your concealer has reached its cooking time and youve blended it flawlessly, dip the same damp sponge you used into your loose powder, like our Easy Bake Setting Powder, $35, and get baking!

4. Setting Your Concealer

For those who arent familiar with baking, it involves applying a medium to thick layer of powder over your concealer and letting it set for a couple of minutes. After this time, dust off any excess with a loose fluffy brush. The result is an airbrushed-looking finish that keeps undereye creases in check for HOURS, and our Easy Bake Setting Powder, $35, works flawlessly with this technique.
