Are you Bluish, Reddish or Brownish?
Which neutralizing tint is best for Karen?
Is she bluish, reddish or purple, or… is she grayish or brownish?
The correct answer is…Bluish, reddish and purple. So she would use a yellow based neutralizing color. Experiment using your neutralizer under or over foundation. Sometimes you’ll need both to achieve your best coverage.
Mix-and-Match to your own skin tone
To neutralize bluish, reddish or purple under-eye circles: choose a yellow-beige neutralizing tint like Judith August’s Special Care Cover.
To neutralize grayish, brownish under-eye circles: choose a peach-orange or peach-pink based neutralizing tint like Judith August’s Orange Masking Creme.
FOLLOW KAREN’S SIMPLE STEPS:
- First we applied a foundation over her entire face.
- With a small camouflage brush, we mixed the two neutralizing colors together. A deep golden beige on the puff under her eye itself gives the illusion that the puff is receding.
- For the very dark line that is under the puff, we took an eyeliner brush and applied a lighter yellow beige concealer to paint the line away. Patting gently, with the little finger, we blended the line into her skin.
- Using a small powder puff, or small fluff brush, we placed loose translucent powder to set and take the shine away and give the illusion of a smooth surface.
THE EFFECT: The puff appears flattened and less noticeable.
You will need:
- Light eye gel (optional)
- Eye cream
- Yellow-based camouflage make up
- Loose translucent powder
- Small oval camouflage brush
- Fine-tip eyeliner brush
- Small, fluffy eyeshadow brush
