Little Lesson:
Concealing Light Puffs or Bags

Your eye area thrives on moisture.

There are no oil glands under the eyes, which makes the eye area tissue a target for dehydration. I believe everyone needs an eye cream – no matter what. Choose a cream that’s light in texture so it won’t weigh down the delicate tissue. Use your third finger and gently pat the cream around the eye area. Start from the outside corner of your eye and work into the inner corner. Give it a minute to absorb.

Eye gel for firming – an option.

Try applying an eye gel before eye cream. Gel can stimulate the blood circulation, and help relieve water retention – which is a typical cause of puffing. Some gels, if they are light in texture, can be left on for a lifting effect. Others are too heavy and must be removed after a few minutes with warm water.

Then, after removing gel, re-apply a very light eye cream. Follow with concealer in the appropriate consistency to handle your particular “challenge.”

You will need:

  • Light eye gel (optional)
  • Eye cream
  • Two lightweight, creamy concealers: one that matches your skin tone, plus one lighter for blending
  • Loose, translucent powder
  • Small, fluffy eyeshadow brush
  • Camouflage brush

Step 1

Mix your concealers together, if needed, to achieve a perfect skin match.

Step 2

Pat and blend lightly starting at the outside of the eye and move inward.

Step 3

Powder using an eyeshadow brush to reduce shine and to keep concealer in place. The shape of this brush fits perfectly under the eye area.

Note

Don’t forget to apply concealer at the inner corner of your eye, typically the darkest area. Apply an extra layer of concealer on top of the foundation to give an added boost if needed.

Handle With Care

Skin tissue below your eyes is delicate and, like a rubber band, its resilience is very limited. If you stretch and pull at it, this fragile skin will soon look saggy and wrinkled.
