Concealing under the eyes sounds like it’s a simple thing to do. With a little technique and the right products, you can achieve the perfect coverage + long-lasting results. Some issues that many people have today are creasing, fading, choosing the right shade, dry crepey skin under the eyes. This is not a cute look as it can make you look older + tired than you are. I’ve experimented with a lot of products both high end and drugstore. The common thought, “if I spend more on the products it’s a better product.” Not true, I’ve had more luck with drugstore products my whole life.
Did you know, the manufacturer that produces brands like La Mer, GlamGlow, Smashbox, LabSeries also manufactures for Nivea, NYX Cosmetics, and Neutrogena??
Have you ever heard of a “dupe” product? It’s usually used in a phrase like, “Mac Twig is a dupe for NYX B52”. “Dupe” is short for the word “duplicate.” So basically, a “makeup dupe” is a product that is similar in quality and/or shade to another product. And usually, it’s used in a way to describe an affordable and/or drugstore product that is an alternative to a high-end (and well-known) makeup product. There is nothing wrong with buying duplicates. Some people will argue that even if produced under the same roof by the same manufacture, the “dupe” is more desirable.
Now that I’ve talked a little bit about high-end + drugstore products let’s get into concealing under the eyes.
#1 Moisturize the under eye area with something that isn’t too oily. Ideally, you want the products to soak into the skin well. You don’t want anything sitting on top of the skin as it will not allow the 0ther products to do their job.
#2 Use a tinted moisturizer with SPF included in the formula – two steps in one. This will help smooth + give your skin an under glow. The perfect foundation for the rest of your makeup steps.

If you do not have access to a good makeup setting spray you can use a finely milled translucent setting powder. I recommend this one here and this is another good one here.
