That trusted concealer holds a special place in every girl’s vanity kit. While foundations are runny, concealer has a thicker and more pigmented texture. Plus, the benefits of using concealers are many! From covering large pores, fine lines, wrinkles and camouflaging pigmentation and dark circles to refreshing tired looking eyes and helping you achieve even skin tone, concealer is that miracle product that keeps your beauty game going strong, each time!
However, the downside of using concealer is the creasing that comes with it. If you find your concealer cracking or creasing just two hours after applying it, then you may probably need to reconsider your method of application.
Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to conceal your dark circles without letting it crease...
Step 1: To begin with, wash away all the dirt and impurities resting on the surface of your skin. Use a gentle face wash such as the Simple Kind To Skin Refreshing Facial Wash and rinse with lukewarm water. Then, pat dry.
Step 2: Next, reach for your primer and apply it all over your face. Get your hands on the Lakmé Absolute Blur Perfect Makeup Primer that’ll hide imperfections and pores and help create a perfect base for your makeup.
Step 3: Now, grab a liquid foundation from your makeup bag. We suggest you try the Lakmé Perfecting Liquid Foundation – Shell that is water-resistant, smudge-free and long lasting.
Step 4: Applying foundation with brush or fingers can result in streaks. Therefore, it’s best to use a beauty blender to blend the foundation in. Dampen the sponge under the sink before going over your face with it.
Step 5: Reach out for the Lakmé Absolute White Intense Liquid Concealer - Ivory Fair and apply it to your under eye area. The concealer will help you conceal your problem areas, brighten your skin and protect it against sun damage with SPF 25.
Step 6: Once again, use a makeup sponge to blend the product evenly into your skin.
Step 7: Last but not the least, set the look by dipping the beauty blender into a pot of translucent powder and gently dab on the under eye area. This step will prevent creasing and is thus, important.
