Little lessons for Big Pretty Eyes
Under-eye bags challenges come in a myriad of forms.👀
For example, dark circles, eye bags and puffs below your eyes, sagging or droopy skin around and above the eye area, discolorations, a bluish cast, scaly and red or sometimes a yellow pallor. Any, and all of these situations make you look haggard and tired under those pretty “baby blues”!
In this collection of “little lessons” you will learn that each situation and different type of eye bags requires a different type of product, color and technique. Some of these solutions are quick, no-brainer fixes; others may need another step or two.
Few people are blessed with no under-eye puffiness or minimal under-eye discoloration. If you have no puffiness or eye bags, eye cream and light foundation may be all that’s necessary for your eye bags area. Lucky you! For the rest of us…trial and error is the best way to find the colors and product consistency that really work for you and bring that I-just-vacationed-in-Bali appearance. 😉
We’ve all got baggage… (and we don’t mean Vuitton!) 👜
However, “eye baggage” in the form of eye puffs, often caused by water retention, allergies, sinus, too much sleep, or you may have actual bags, most commonly caused by a deposit of fat that settles right under the eye – the correct concealer and technique can make a difference.
Concealing light puffs or eye bags.
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.
#protip 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.
STEP 3 – Powder using an eye shadow brush to reduce shine and to keep concealer in place. The shape of this brush fits perfectly under the eye area.
#protip Desperate measure for de-puffing: You can resort to the makeup artist’s trick of using a very tiny touch of hemorrhoid cream to temporarily reduce under-eye swelling and eye bags.
PROCEED WITH CAUTION: Please only do this if you are in a state of desperation. It really works, but shouldn’t be done often.
