My No-Crease Trick For Applying Undereye Concealer

September 1, 2016 by Katelyn Holland
shefinds | beauty

Earlier this summer, my friends and I rented a summer house in the Hamptons. There were twelve girls getting ready with only two bathrooms. Quite the challenge. Not wanting to get in anyone’s way, I quickly did my makeup, focusing on covering up my dark undereye circles. When I was done, one of my friends literally stopped me in my tracks and asked, “Can you do whatever you just did under your eyes to me?” Before I knew it, I had a line of girls waiting for me to do their undereye makeup.

I was happy to accept the challenge because I had recently discovered a no-crease trick for applying my undereye concealer. The first step is to find a concealer that works best for you. I’m obsessed with the Too Faced Born This Way Concealer ($28). This concealer is very creamy and bendable and instantly brightens my undereye area. It seriously reduces the appearance of my dark circles. I generously apply it under the eye and blend it with a damp beauty blender. However, like with most concealers, there tends to be a little creasing. I solved this problem with my new favorite miracle product: Bésame Cosmetics Brightening Setting Face Powder ($22). At first, I dismissed the product because the packaging made it look like a product my grandma would use. Big mistake. This powder perfectly sets my undereye concealer and prevents it from creasing. The powder also has a brightening effect that makes me look wide awake when I use it under my eyes. Plus, the formula somehow absorbs oil but still has a matte finish. Miracle. Product.

My favorite thing about the Bésame powder is that it also color corrects. Color correcting concealer is a huge trend, but it can be complicated. I use the Vanilla Powder, which is for light-medium skin tones and color corrects red and pink tones in the skin. However, there’s five different shades so you can pick the one that works best for your coloring. And don’t worry about “baking” your concealer. Although baking is an effective method for setting your makeup, I find that it’s annoying and takes too long. I simply apply the Bésame powder with a damp beauty blender. I only wait about a minute, then I brush away any excess powder with a Luxie Beauty powder brush. That’s all it takes to prevent my undereye concealer from creasing the whole night! I used this method on six of the twelve girls staying at our house, and they all asked me to do it again the next night. Quite the stamp of approval if you ask me.
